Update: Here’s an update to this I did on January 26, 2012.
This post was not paid for by Pinterest. I’m 99.9% positive pretty sure they have no idea this blog wading among millions exists. Let’s face it, it’s pretty much just me writing and a few friends reading, and maybe my Mom, maybe, haha.
Consider me on the bandwagon. I’m officially on Pinterest. I was going to write an entire post about Pinterest and my participation in the Pinterest Challenge, but I figured it would be easier to make a video to explain why I joined Pinterest, and what I’m working on for the Challenge…sort of.
To sum up the video, I fell for Pinterest. Hard. Like, fall for Richard Gere hard. Shut up, I have a thing for Richard Gere (mainly ala Pretty Woman. There’s just something about the love story between a rich guy and a hooker). I own it (liking Richard Gere, not owning Pretty Woman, but now that I think about it I really should). So in lieu of joining Pinterest, and of the Pinterest Challenge – I’m going to crochet a rug.
Particularly, one similar to this. Originally from Viva Terra for over $700 dollars. YIKES.
Theirs = wool. Mine = cheap yarn. Theirs = meticulously adorable little flowers. Mine = whatever shape I feel like making on that particular night. Theirs = adorable.
Mine might end up a ton of coasters and potholders.
The best part of this? It keeps me busy because I clearly do not have anything else to do, and I can roll it up and throw it in the wash. One of the things I didn’t mention was the size I’m planning on. I’m looking to make a 5×7 rug.
It’s going to be a lot of work.
Bring it on.
Happy Pinspiration (not to be confused with perspiration),
Pss …A few side things: Note that I mention I have no makeup on in this video, it’s apparent I forgot I had a little blusher on from earlier. Also, I thought it would be nice to share the video with a mosquito. He was more interested in trying to get blood from me and buzz around the camera. I will not be inviting him back. Also also, I said “like” too much. *cringe*. Sorry.
