12 Months of Pinterest

I thought it was time to start one of the bucket list items I have that is going to take me a bit longer than some of the others. It’s a 12 month project…..it’s “Complete a project from Pinterest every month for a year!”

Now this may not seem like a big deal to a lot of crafty or arty people out there but for me it’s huge. I’ve never been very good with starting a hands on project and completing it; I guess you could say I don’t have a lot of follow through. For example, I have a half finished knitted scarf in the cupboard that is full of holes, a cross stitch sitting on my desk that is gathering dust and a sketch book that has half finished drawings. So to take on a bucket list challenge like this will take all of the dedication I have.

There are a few rules for this big bucket list challenge.

  1. I have to have found the project via pinterest.
    (If you don’t know what pinterest is, check out my link at the bottom)
  2. It has to be a craft/art/creative project of some sort.
    (No cooking projects allowed as I cook anyway so it would be cheating!) 
  3. I have to COMPLETE the project in the allotted month. Not just start it, not just try it but complete it.

I’ll be posting here each month with whatever project I select so if I fail you’ll all know and be able to tell me off! Scary thought, hehe.

I’m now heading off to work on this month’s project.  As I’ve left it until very late in January to start this bucket list goal I’d better kick my butt into high gear and get moving! Wish me luck!

P.S. If you’re interested in checking out my pinterest boards or just pinterest in general just follow the link below. If you want to see the possible projects I could be doing over the 12 months, want to have a look at my picture bucket list or a whole bunch of other things I’ve pinned head on over and check it all out!

  1. I’m here from the Quick Follow My Blog Swap #2. I love your bucket list idea. Isn’t Pinterest great! I get all kinds of crafty inspiration there and look forward to seeing which projects you pick to complete each month.

    • Hi, thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog. Pinterest is just fantastic; i’m just hoping i actually manage to do a project each month. My january project post should be up in the next day or two as i’ve already started it 😀 Check back soon!

  2. Hi! What a great idea! I’ve recently gotten into Pinterest and its so hard not to just randomly pin things. So I made a vow to myself to at least try some of the things I pin!
    But your way is much better! I have about 6 half finished Pinterest projects spread over my living room lol. At least you’re finishing stuff!!
    I am not sure how to follow blogs but I’ve bookmarked this and will be back to see how your projects go 🙂

    • Thanks for stopping by. Good luck with finishing those pinterest projects you have going; it certainly is a challenge to see them through to the end!
