Pinnovation– (noun) – a new device, idea or method inspired by one of the 8 million pins you have saved on Pinterest. You know who you are.
Hey there! In yesterday’s post, I talked about the how the struggle is real when it comes to finding time to get everything done on the to-do list. Between work and family and more work and dentist appointments and dishes and all the other stuff that takes up a day in the life, it’s tough.
So one of the things I do seem to find time for regularly is browsing and pinning from Pinterest. I’ve found a lot of inspiration rooms, recipes, products, the occasional cheesy quote and stuff I want to try. Maybe the price tag was too rich for my blood but it was something I loved. Maybe it was just a cute idea.
On Fridays, I’m going to pick one of those pins and get my Pinnovation on over the weekend. If it can be completed over the course of two days it’s a contender. Many of the pins I have will satisfy some item on my list. Like “get something fancy up on the wall” or “bring more color in”. Really, it’s a two-fer. I get to cross something off my list and try something new at the same time. Bonus!
Bringing in more pops of color is high on my list of priorities so my first pinnovation is inspired by this mirror from Sgt. Pepper’s Kitchen.
So, although the pin is a mirror I’m going to make a clock instead. Mirrors are cool, they’re good for bouncing around light and making space feel bigger. I just thought “clock” when I first saw this pin.
We’ll check back in on Monday with an update post and let you know if we scored a pin win or a pincident involving pinjuries. OK, OK, I’ll stop now.
Has anyone tried something they pinned on Pinterest? And was it a pin win or a pin fail? Let us know in the comments!
