Hi everyone, my name is Katie and I’m addicted to Pintrest.
Ok, this is where you say… “Hi Katie”
I started pinning as a way of keeping track of all the great inspirational sites that I was looking at while planning for E’s birthday party. It helped me tremendously and I was able to look back after it was over and pat myself on the back for following through on most of what I pinned.
As I was doing that, I also started coming across all these awesome outfits people put together on polyvore and post. The great thing about this is that I’ve always needed someone to help me put my outfits together. If I’m not at work or the gym, I’m pretty much patheticlly dressed all the time. So I pinned outfit after outfit and got excited about the idea of actually looking “put together”. Well, turns out that’s where the frustration has come into play. I tried clicking through these outfits, to polyvore to the places these pieces can be bought and they are almost ALWAYS sold out. Then I thought I’ll print out the outfit and go to the mall and shop. Somehow I never remember to print the outfit or document the notes about where to possibly find some of the pieces. I keep thinking I’ll shop online and have all these delivered nice and neat to my house but I’m just not that sophisticated yet. Guess I’m sticking to t-shirts and pullovers which isn’t bad either.
THEN there’s the food. Holy cow! The food and desserts are amazing on here. I can’t tell you how many things I’ve pinned that I would LOVE to have time to make. I guess that’s just an excuse though because for the right cause I’ll squeeze it in, no matter how tired. Take, for example, the company bake sale to help 100 Neediest. I traveled all week but I planned ahead, I made the dough, froze it then pulled them back out on Thursday night after my flight and baked them in time for the sale on Friday. Turns out they in fact looked exactly like what I pinned and were a big hit at the sale.
Pintrest helped me find ideas of improvements to make in our master bath.
Pintrest has also given me some anxiety though that my house isn’t perfectly decorated for the fall already.
I have a PILE of projects on there that I’m dying to get to and maybe between, work, going to school,exercising,planning a charity 10k, managing the household finances, Christmas shopping, and caring for my son, husband and dog, jus to name a few, I’ll do them but for now I’m just giong to have to deal with the fact that it’s just a large repository of Awesomeness just waiting to be tapped into.
I’d love to see your boards. want to see mine? Follow me on Pintrest and happy pinning!!
