Are you one of half of the moms affected by Pinterest stress? I know that I am. I admit it, I am not the best cook, crafter, DIY-er, etc. I don’t have the first clue how to sew and I am definitely NOT a fashionista or expert home decorator. I love my husband and my kids, but there simply are not enough hours in the day to do all of the things that Pinterest says I should.
Oh, and when it comes to birthday parties, I still just invite friends to the house, pull out the slow cookers, and enjoy a day eating and watching the kids play together. I buy a cake at the store, and I don’t even get balloons, let alone craft a whole theme with appropriate decor, favors, costumes and activities.
That being said, I still spend too much time on Pinterest.
Both my husband and I have pinned recipes; crafts for the kids; cleaning tips; ideas for gardening, home decorating; and tons of other things. However, of these hundreds of pins, we’ve hardly done any of them.
I simply can’t waste time on Pinterest if I am not even going to try out any of these great recipes and ideas. So, this summer, my family is doing a Pinterest challenge. Each week, we will pick one recipe and one other type of pin (cleaning, craft, etc.) and try it out.
The pins that we have picked for June are:
- Ruler Growth Chart
- Spelling with Nuts & Bolts
- Finger Friends or Peepers
- Test Giant Bubble Recipe and Super Giant Bubble Recipe
Are you a Pinterest addict? Do you actually do anything you pin? What are your favorite pins?
