Accountable Pinning

I, like most women between 20 and 60 years of age, I have a Pinterest account. It is my bulletin board of intentions - what I want to make, do, believe, own. It's about stuff and I'm not proud of that but I'm cutting and pasting on the internet.

I want to turn some of those wishes and good intentions on Pinterest into a reality. Rather than cooking my way through a master chef's recipes as Julie Powell did with her blog, Julie/Julia Project, I have decided to knock something off my Pinterest list on a regular basis. I'm not going to commit to once a week since I could prepare a few pinned recipes in a week but it might take 6 months to crochet that fabulous afghan or even years to take that bucket list trip to Venice.

So it's a mixed bag of various pins which I think will make it interesting for me and hopefully for you. I'm also not following the embarrassment of Pinterest "nailed it" posts with photos of the sad reality of recipes and crafts that fail in comparison to the perfection of the original post. For me, it's not about the presentation but the reality of the pin - the taste, the colour, the challenge.

Pinteresting is my blog account of how whether or not I'd make that salad again, what happened when I made the 'no sew' vest and what was I thinking when I tried to put into practice that lame feel good philosophical catch phrase.
Seeing and doing.
