Pinterest plans - Pin It Do It Challenge

I've talked before about certain things I've seen on Pinterest and had a go at myself, be they recipes, home ideas or outfits. I've decided to make this more of a thing this year and challenge myself to do at least one a week (perhaps one every 2 weeks and if Roz is up for that as well, there could be one a week to report on the blog).  Here are a few examples of some I've already had a go at and if you want to see the ideas I hope to have a go at (among the many, many inspirations I pin, I've selected a few I REALLY want to make sure I try out), you can see them here.

I'm hoping this inspires me to actually use more of the inspiration I get from Pinterest and do more with it.  I think I'm pretty good at making use of it, but sometimes there are days I get so distracted pinning all. the. things. that some of them get lost in all my boards!

I'm also going to work on making my own pictures better quality, like the images I like to pin.  I already tried to improve them by taking them in the study where there tends to be better light than the bedroom, I may have to try setting up the tripod instead to get a better background than my drawers or shelves!  I would prefer to get them all outside like the amazing Wendy and Rebecca, but it's not always easy to find a willing photographer and I'm not going as far as lugging my tripod about taking pictures of myself outside, I get self conscious enough as it is posing outdoors!

Incidentally if anyone has tackled a Pinterest inspired project and wants to send it in (or if you blog one yourself and want to send us a link), we would love to post a few on the blog!

We can be contacted at either or  :)

Bex this post is ace! I like some of your pictures better than your inspiration, your outfit is way better that Katie's for one :)

Count me icon the challenge, I'll create a similar board on Pinterest too xx

Mmm baked cambert, we had that in Paris and are now OBSESSED with it!!

This looks fun I have just pinned loads of sewing projects which I want to get through.


Lara said...

I am so impressed with all of these! As Roz said, some of yours are better than the inspiration!!! xx

Anna, Oh yes! I like that. said...

This is one of my plans for this year! in fact, I have a one man hashtag #pinneditdidit if anyone fancies using that then jump aboard.

Ooooh, I might start a new board just for these things.

Would love to guest post, just need to find and do something! x

Bex said...

Totally stealing that hashtag Anna! ;)

Might even change the names of my boards to that and #pinitdoit rather than my long-winded: pins I plan to actually do, etc!

Lara - thanks!
Ashleigh - I know - so addictive!
Roz - glad you're in! ;)

This is such a good idea! I love the string light things you had on your Christmas table, where are they from? I've made a few things after I pinned them on pinterest, it is so much fun to interpret other people's ideas. i don't know what I did before pinterest!

Bex said...

Oooh send us some pics MJ?!

The lights are from Not On The High Street (Cotton & Cable), they do loads of colours and you can mix and match!
