Let’s Be Honest, We’re All Pinterest Slackers.

Kardashian-esque Makeovers, Bacon Corn Muffins, Wine Cork Bath Mats; who wouldn’t want to know all about them? We see various ideas similar to these all over Pinterest.  What do we do when we come across these eye-catching wonders? We “Pin It.”  Now, let me ask you something else:  Do any of you actually ATTEMPT these creative ideas? I know I don’t and I can’t be the only one.

I have over 700 pins on my Pinterest profile and I can honestly say I’ve only taken a hand full of these pins to the next level.  Most of them were recipes, but this doesn’t stop me from pinning the crap out of Pinterest anyway.  Why do we do it? Well, to put it simply, we like sharing new ideas with our friends.  We can’t help but feel “cool” when we find an idea we know our friends will love.  Also, we really do have every intention of using most of these ideas, if not now then definitely in the future, right? I hope so.

Why don’t we attempt these ingenious ideas? I mean, some of them are definitely life-changing.  Well for one thing, if you’re anything like me, you don’t want to spend money you might not have on materials for these projects, because you know deep down you’re going to accidentally mess it up somehow.  All of that money and time wasted and the only thing you have to show for it is your frustration and inability to follow directions.  On the other hand, maybe attempting these insane pins are worth the blood, sweat and tears because we can always count on the community of epic fails on Pinterestfail.com to comfort us. 

Whatever the case, I know most of you don’t practice what you pin.  But for those of you who do, I am interested to know what pins are actually worth pursuing.  Help a girl out on her first blog post!  Also, feel free to follow my boards on Pinterest even though they’re more fantastical than realistic.
