I think I’ve lost my mind, and I’m so excited about it!
So, it all started when I developed a blog crush on http://www.merricksart.com. Well, actually, it started before that. It really started when I was looking for “Paris” related things for K’s room (I will be showing that off soon, so be sure to check back!) and came across this fabulous pin, that I was thinking I might be able to use in some way for the room. I hope I’m not the only one who has pin-add.. Needless to say, I made my way back to Merrick’s blog, forgot what I’d been researching and fell in love with all of her great ideas for clothing refashioning! If you get a chance to look, check it out. Her site has lots of ideas and sewing projects for the newbie!
Anyways.. back to losing my mind. On her blog, she mentions a Pinterest Challenge that is going on. How exciting! Since I’m new to blogging, I’ve never actually done a Pinterest Challenge before, and am so excited to participate in this one! The Challenge is to pick six Pinterest pins and complete them in a given amount of time. The only problem is, the Challenge ends on April 2nd – and I signed up on March 20th. Ugh. That’s nearly.. a pin a day. No problem! Right? Right. Here goes.. I’m linking up with Merrick’s Art and her Sisters Share it All posts with both feet!
Here’s what I’ll be working on:
1. For some reason, not one of my five children gave me a calendar for Christmas. We’ve been crutching along since January without one – you can’t imagine the chaos, but I can promise, there is a sitcom in it somewhere. I love that this one is reusable, and I really, really love the quote section.
2. Easter is on it’s way. I need more stuff. Love the look of this – and my neighbor is dying for me to make something just like this for her!
3. I need this. Actually, Shay needs this, so he can reclaim his square inch of the closet.
4. With K’s birthday bash coming up next month, I need a few treat stands – the small collection I have is just not going to work. Although this link doesn’t lead to a tutorial, it does have some very cute ideas!
