Beyond the Pinboard

In the year that I’ve been on Pinterest I’ve pinned 1,322 ideas and created 10 different boards to organize all these great finds. That’s a lot of pins – not epic by some standards – but a whole lot by my standards.

Stats are great and all, but seriously, what good does it do to just let all those ideas sit there? I’ve made quite a few recipes and put lots of ideas into use (Candied Bacon Ice Cream, Strawberries stuffed with Cheesecake, Wedding Centerpieces, etc.), but there’s a massive amount of stuff that’s collecting cyber dust.

That’s why I’ve started this blog – to force myself to start trying out more of these ideas and putting them into real life. Call it a Julie & Julia for the Pinterest age. If you’re a Pinner and have tried things you’ve collected on your boards, please feel free to share – I’d love to post your results. The plan is to put at least one idea from Pinterest into action every week.

Wish me luck.
