My Pinterest feed has become saturated with DIY project pictures leading back to blogs. Some of these are cool, and I click through. But there can be too much of a good thing. :)
I miss simple pictures. Where did the untouched photographs go? And what if I just want to waste some time and not take on a major project? Pinterest has begun to make me feel inadequate--as if I need more of that in my life! Ha!
*The trends on MY Pinterest feed aren't the same as the ones on yours because we don't follow the same people.*
My feed is full of pins that trigger the following:
a. A fleeting desire to create closet organizers out of PVC piping
b. The urge to find out the Six Tricks to a Flat Stomach
c. A scrunched up nose at How to Make Fondant
d. Annoyance at anything having to do with wooden pallets
e. Guilt that I didn't announce my pregnancies with elaborate, staged photo sessions
f. Despair about the super-cute clothes either completely unaffordable or beyond wrong for my body
g. Dismay at even thinking of painting any piece of my furniture. Apparently this is only to be attempted by master furniture gurus. We're talking high-level security, sirens-will-go-off if you dare consider painting an end-table.
h. Squinty-eyes wondering why anyone would take a beautiful photo and manipulate the colors to such unnatural proportions. What was wrong with it to begin with?
i. The snarky thought: How long will the gluten-free phase last? Six more months? Twelve?
j. Why are we thinking about back-to-school organization in mid-July? I don't like to think of that until two days before school is in session. Or two days after.
I love Pinterest. Still waste plenty of time there. But I will not be making furniture out of pallets, nor will I be attempting homemade fondant or jewelry organizers. I might skim the flat-tummy article, but I will in no way, shape, or form actually do the exercises. Painting furniture? Will a secret security sect strike me dead if I don't follow the proper tips? I'll leave it to the professionals.
Are you on Pinterest? What pins grab you? What would you like to see less of?
Have a fabulous Wednesday!
