This is three-fold: Things I have tried, Things I am doing right now, and Things I will try (no really).
I’ve noticed how it’s really easy to re-pin things “To Try” on Pinterest and then never get around to doing them. Ever. But it continues to be fun to collect them somewhat obsessively for “someday”. Well someday never comes, people! All you have is now, and depending on how into metaphysics you are, even “now” is wonky. So use it while you can.
Here are the top reasons I have found to not getting around to the actual execution of Pinterest ideas:
1. I am too “tired”, whatever that means at that point in time (anything from low blood sugar to ennui).
2. I don’t have every single item required to complete said experiment.
3. I am too busy pinning MORE THINGS OMG(!!!)
That said, good lord winter can make me lazy, so I’ve decided to commit to actually doing one artsy project per week that I have added on Pinterest, if only to remind myself that all hope is not lost for my ability to commit to finishing projects.
For starters: Pinterest ideas I have actually completed:
These ones mentioned in previous posts ~
Plus, I made snowflakes out of coffee filters: Coffee Filter Snowflakes
Then there’s what I’ve been working on at the moment:
Actually I had an ulterior motive with this post – showing off this map hearts thing I’ve made. It’s modeled of course off of something similar I saw on Pinterest, and I am Absurdly pleased with how it has turned out.
Finally, the projects below that are going to happen this year! The fantastic (or catastrophic) results will show up on here periodically. Feel free to join me in this year of creating (!!):
Now let’s do it.
