you are invited to a pinterest pin-along party… and a heart filled giveaway

While visiting my favorite thrift store a few weeks ago, I got into a conversation with a lady in her 80’s.  She was telling me about how much she loved Pinterest and how her girlfriends get together on Saturdays to pin stuff.  I asked her how many of those things they have made and she said “oh none but it is fun to pin them”.  Hmmmm, all this time, I was under the impression that people pull inspiration from Pinterest in order to make them, at least some of them.  So for the past few weeks, I have asked a few more people about their Pinterest activities and it seems this is going on everywhere.

Does this sound like you or are you the type that takes inspiration and runs with it?  Perhaps you are just creative and don’t need the inspiration but choose to share what you have made to inspire others….yes, it takes both types to make Pinterest run doesn’t it.

So for the next few months (or longer if it seems like fun) I will be hosting a Pinterest Partay every Saturday!!  A Pin-along for those of you who need a little push to do something with those ideas you pinned or to share your pins with the rest of us.  So, on Saturdays, I will be posting either my Pinterest inspired creation or my own Pinned project and I would love to see what you have done.  The great thing about Pinterest is that everyone can join in.  If you are a baker, knitter, painter, gardener, decorator, partyer, teacher, it is all good.

The only rules will be

1. to include the Pin you used as inspiration or your own Pin in your post

2. to post a link to the Pin-along party so others can join in too

3.  to visit at least one other pinners post and share the love

You can post a link to your blog post, tumbler page, Pinterest page or project, Flicker, or Twitter.

I do need opinions on what to call it.  Pinterest Pin along?  Pinterest Pinning Party?  Pin-along?  Any other ideas?  And what do you think, would you be interested in pinning along with the rest of us?


and here is the fun part.  In order to say thank you for helping me get the word out , I am giving away this cute embroidered love token.  It comes on an embroidery hoop and the back is covered with a grey felt, ready to give to your beloved.  The contest ends next Saturday, February and please make sure I have a way to get in touch with you because it will go out first thing Monday morning since Saint Valentines day is hot on our heels.

This sounds fun! I have pinned so many crafts, but have actually made very few of them. There are so many great ideas out there!

    How cute!! I’d love to join the pin along, although I’m not that familiar with Pinterest… I heard you can waste precious time just looking for ideas! I don’t blog so consider this my entry for the fabulous love token! Always amazed at your creativity!

    Yeah, but so sometimes I can't come up with my own ideas, I just want to make those things. Or I have my own ideas but don't know how to execute them. *sigh* I don't know.

    Sounds like a fun idea – I might need to sign up for Pintrest – I see a lot of cool ideas others have already gathered there!
