A New Goal for a New Year

I've never been good at sticking to one hobby or activity.  I think I've always had a kind of ADD when it comes to that.  When I was little I tried a season or two of every sport before moving on to a more exciting one.  I couldn't even stay in one club during high school for more than a year.  

So now, a grown up in the working world; I am determined to have a hobby and stick with it for at least a year. Given my track record, my best chance at making it work is to keep it interesting.  Something that is hard to do with one hobby. Enter my newest addiction: Pinterest. 

After two co-workers told me about an addicting new website I had to see it for myself.  I knew it had to be something great when I had to request to join the site.  Luckily my co-workers invited me to join and I was pinning to my hearts content in a few short days. 

I was spending a good hour almost everyday looking at anything and everything that had been pinned. But what good was all this pinning if that is all I did. I started feeling like a hypocrite; saying I was a crafter and a baker but not actually doing any of the things I thought were so ingenious. 

So with my almost 200 pins on my boards I figure I have plenty of crafts to make and recipes to try and a new blog to document my successes and failures at being a world class crafter, baker, chef and organizer. 

So at least one day every week I am going to do something I have pinned and post it on my blog. Hopefully at the end of the year I'll have a collection of crafts, a stockpile of recipes and an attention span lasting longer than the dog from UP!


  1. I followed a pin to your blog - and then looked at every post you have done - way to go!! I have really only done 2 or 3 things I have pinned.

  2. You read my mind! I feel exactly the same way so I am so glad that I found you! Can't wait to dive in and read everything:)
