Pinning with Purpose

           Are you one of the millions hooked on Pinterest? I am too! But I'm worried that all my pinning may just be for show and even though I have high hopes of making a bunch of cool stuff, will I ever? So, I'm pledging to pin with purpose at least once a month! I can do this and must, my boards are full of neat ideas, great recipes and projects that just beg me to do them! Life is too short just to save boards over flowing with inspiration and not running with it, so let's start our own project run way, link up with me ( I"ll try this gadget one more time) and share your Pinterest project with us! My first pledge is to make a cake stand from plates, giving me a excuse to go on the hunt for thrift store plates and flea market finds that will work for the base, like the photo above from Pinterest. I'm getting started on this today, and hopefully will have a new cake stand to show off soon. Will you pin with purpose with me?


  1. I have been so out of touch, I don't even know what "pinning" is! lol!! But it sounds neat ... maybe you could bring me up to speed?? please? :) lol!! Hugz, Cathy♥♥

  2. LOVE Pinterest! Completely addicted. Can't wait to see your cake stand.

  3. I was just thinking the same thing the other day! So many "ideas" pinned now to do something about it! I made a couple hair clips for my daughter from a "pin" that I loved.. I'll join your "pin with a purpose" campaign!

  4. I am with you on this...I see so many things that I want to pin, but I really do not need to add anything extra to my life that will need my attention of having to cleaned out in days ahead....Only useful things for me...

  5. Ah Pinterest how I love thee! I am with you Sue, I pledge to make something from pinterest as soon as tomorrow morning arrives! I actually have 2 projects in mind that I am just about to start. One is a gift idea and the other is a decorating idea for Christmas. I can't wait!!!

  6. I've chosen your Apple Maple Bars as my first project. I'll make them this month.

    I was wondering about Pinterest and copyright. Do you know of it being a problem?

    Also, do you mind me using your photo of the bars since I've pinned them and I'm referring folks back to you?

    I don't know what the etiquette about showing pins on blogs is. For that matter, I don't even know how to pin on blogs yet!

    Blessings friend!
