Pinterest Challenge

It’s true, I like Pinterest.  A lot.  I wrote and published a post about it, but Blogger ate it and now I can’t find it.  But, back to how much I like Pinterest.  I’m on the website several times a day (if only for a few minutes, I swear, if my boss is reading this!)   I just looked at my page on Pinterest and realized I have 55 boards and have pinned 1756 items!  Is that a lot?  If you are on Pinterest, how many boards and pins do you have?  Just curious.  
I use Pinterest mainly to catalog design ideas, food inspiration and things I’d like to cook or bake (I’ve been on a cooking binge lately so I pinned about 20 new things yesterday), things I’d like to buy, and crafty things I want to make.  
Like these:

But I often find myself doing more pinning than making.  
That’s what’s great about the “Pinterest Challenge” – we’re all encouraged to C R E A T E instead of just sitting on our couches, eating ice cream, and pinning away!  Oops, is that only me??  Well, at least it’s Abby (A Delightful Design) too!
And that just prompted me to look at Abby’s boards, she’s pinned over 2800 items!  I’m in good company:)
I’m super excited that my friend Cassie (Hi Sugarplum!) is also hosting this season’s (yes, apparently it’s still winter) Pinterest Challenge along with Erin (The Great Indoors), Sherry (Young House Love), and Katie (Bower Power).
If you don’t know Cassie, you may have seen some of her craftiness floating around blogland recently:

Here’s what Cassie says we do to participate in the Winter Pinterest Challenge:

1. Simply find something you’ve pinned on Pinterest….if you can narrow it down! It can be anything, big or small.
2. Create your version from the Pinsperation and blog about it (be sure to include the pin and original link so the creator gets credit, too).

3. Then come back next Wednesday, March 14, and share it at Hi Sugarplum. That way we can all marvel in what you’ve done, and probably pin it! And thus the evil cycle continues.
I’m in!  See ya next Wednesday!

Meet Megan

Hi! I’m Megan, mom to a thoughtful teenager and spunky young girl. We call Houston home and recently moved into our dream home. I traded my lawyer hat to become a full-time blogger in 2010. I love sharing my passion for affordable fashion, home decor, organization, & fitness to help inspire you to take care of you!


  1. Great idea!!

    I seriously always wonder if I am the only one doing WAY to much pinning and not enough making.
    I will take on this challenge gladly 🙂

  2. 31 boards, and 1273 pins here. We're renovating a bathroom right now, and it has been helpful looking over all of my bathroom pins to get an idea of what kind of look we're going for.

  3. I am a slow pinner and only have 191 pins. I also have a real hodge podge, like the one with lots of hair styles. I am trying to narrow down what project I will attack.

  4. 1756 is a reasonable about of pins to have! I've have been addicted since I first found pinterest. I have 3411 pins and that is after clearing out a bunch knowing that I will never make/buy/bake/use whatever it was that I pinned. I blame my large number of pins on my sister's upcoming wedding and always wanting to redecorate/diy my home!! I have a list of things I could accomplish for the pinterest challenge! I am hoping to cross a few off my list!!

  5. I love pinterest too! Can't wait to see what you come up with. Happy 2nd birthday to James, the party looked great!

  6. Oh meggie!!! Thanks for the shoutout!!! I'm excited about this challenge and can't wait to see what everyone makes1

    now I'm curious of how many boards and pins I have! I need to make more boards, I tend to put lots in one and that makes it hard to find stuff later.


  7. I'm so excited for the challenge! I've only participated in one of them before. Now I've just got to browse through 49 boards and 2261 pins to figure out what I want to do! Can't wait to see what you create! 🙂

  8. haha! I have over 3,600 pins!!! eek! I'm addicted!! AND I still rip out pages from magazines. Been doing that for over 12 years, can't stop now! But pinterest has helped me curb it {a little}.
    follow me if you want!!
    I don't have a blot {yet} but I adore design!!!


  9. I pin not just for me but for others {well that is the excuse I use for my excessive pinning} but hey it pays off, look at the settee you got right? So my boards aren't just for me to make, they are inspiration for others to use as well. Sometimes, like the settee, I find great deals or wonderful tutorials that I may or may not buy or make, but I know that others would, so I pin it. That is what I love about Pinterest! It's a great way to share with everyone.
