Pinterest Has a Way...

of getting me off track,
and helping me get things done at the same time!

Does anybody out there in blog-land know what I mean?

First I spotted this on Pinterest:

52 Week Organized Home Challenge
                  My original pin HERE.

and I got on the band-wagon to a more organized home in 52 weeks.  There are so many great ideas here! This process has made me look at spaces that get overlooked in our home, and how I can do things differently... BETTER!

And then, I'd spot something like this:

Original pin HERE.

Do you see my problem?  Those of you who saw the movie "Up!" will know what I mean when I say: "SQUIRREL!"

Yes - it's a silverware tray.  But no - it's not being used in the kitchen where I'm still supposed to be cleaning and organizing in week four of 2012.  I'm so easily distracted.  I'm off to the dollar store to get a cheap silverware tray to organize our BATHROOM.  I'm pretty sure this "pin" will be a success!

So... I'm still cleaning and organizing.  I'm just in the WRONG ROOM.  Is anybody there with me?

Oh, Pinterest.
Here are the rules for Project Pinterest:
1. Decide which pin on Pinterest you’d like to recreate.
2. Create it!
3. Flop or success, create a blog post about your re-do and include the original pin’s url.
4. Add the Project Pinterest button to your post so others can join in too!
5. Link up and check out other bloggers’ posts!

UPDATE:  Amanda has done a great tutorial post about how to add a "pin it" button to your blog -- on every post.  Check it out HERE.


  1. I am with you! Scatter-brained is my middle name! I love this idea. Might work for us too!

  2. Sweet ideas. I love using the silverware tray in the bathroom. I am going take this one too. Thanks for posting. Blessings!

  3. ...isn't it funny...the only two "Pins" I clicked on this morning were both of these from you! :) I LOVE that organizing site and have already re-organized our junk drawer and re-purposed another drawer to be my coupon/grocery list drawer and FINALLY realized what the tall wire shelf in our pantry is for...tin foil, plastic wrap, etc! {duh!}

    But I'm right there.....squirrel!....with you. I have a gazzilion craft projects going on right now and should probably just finish one before moving on to another! ;)

  4. I pinned that same tip! LOL That is so awesome, especially when you have three kids and not enough holes in the toothbrush holders. I can totally understand the "squirrel" moments when sifting through Pinterest.

    I'm going to look into that 52 week challenge. Sounds intriguing!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one, and truly enjoy "conversations" with you! ~Sally
