Pinterest Challenge! Are you in?!!

With Project Run & Play over I'm feeling a little dull and purposeless despite having literally THOUSANDS of ideas I want to try, create, sew, etc. The problem then you ask?...I cannot get focused and light the fire under my bum!! I'm all over the place with ideas and frankly I just don't have the time it takes to get the 'quick finish' gratitude I need to "satisfy my soul!" Lol! Well that changes NOW!!!!

Today, in my travels, I ran into a Pinterest Challenge hosted by Merrick's Art-it's called "Sisters Share It All-Pinterest Challenge" and you can find the details here:

The idea is this--we all have 50,000 pins on our Pinterest boards-more than we could probably do in this lifetime quite frankly, haha and rather than do them, most people (GUILTY here!!) just go on and pin more ideas!! So the challenge is just that--a challenge to get you to actually look back over your pins, choose any 6 YOU want and complete them with reporting at the end of the six weeks-sounds totally doable right??!! And exciting & fun to boot! So without further adieu here are my selections:

So #1 is a keepsake, handprint frame for the twin's room.  I will most likely be making 2 of these, 1 for each baby.  There was no how-to with this link on Pinterest but it looks easy enough for me to D.I.M. (Do-It-Myself!)

#2 is a decorative pillow--these have been on my list for some time (not this particular pin, but just to make decorative pillows for my home in general).  This again was only a link to someone's Flickr page and not a tutorial, so I may end up using one of the many other tutorials I bookmarked or just do one of these designs myself (again D.I.M.) because they look easy enough!

#3 Making my own glitter!!!  How fun is that? This can be multi-purposed for crafts, nails or whatever other project you can think of!  I'm excited!!

#4  I just LOVE projects that result in keepsakes that can even be past along through generations!!  This project is for a baby pillow that is personalized with your favorite outgrown baby clothes--how great is that?  Reminiscent yet whimsical!  How SWEET!  Again, I will probably be making two of these.

#5  Finally--something for Mama--LOL!!  Nail Project!  This should be interesting to pull off but I've had nail pins for a LONG while and have yet to complete one so what a perfect opportunity to do so.

#6  A softie/lovey project--Yet another MUST on my to-do-list!  This link didn't offer a tutorial either, however I have many, many bookmarked as I mentioned I've been wanting to do a couple for a while now.

And there you have it--this is what I will be working on for the next 6 weeks, so ARE YOU IN???   Please head over to Merrick's Art to check out the full details of this Pinterest Challenge and join the fun:
