Holiday Pin it Do it coming soon…

Posted 11 November, 2012 by Trish in / 14 Comments


Thanks so much to everyone who took the time to fill out the survey I provided last week about Pin it and Do it. I was thrilled that over 30 people provided feedback! About half of you said you’d like to see Pin it and Do it once a quarter (the rest were divided between every other month and monthly), so that will be the plan for 2013.

The other day on twitter, however, Ms. Bookalicious Pam said she neeeeeeded a holiday Pin it and Do it. Others quickly piped in and things snowballed from there. In a very good and enthusiastic way.

So, get your engines started because the next round of Pin it and Do it will start on Thursday November 15th. I’ll be out of town this week on business and since there’s a short turn around I’m not doing an official sign-up this time.  If you write up a intro post, feel free to link it in the comments below. 

Pin It and Do It: A Pinteresting Challenge

The Details:
1. To participate you will choose your level and then make (or do) that amount of pins during Nov 15-Dec 31, 2012. Challenge ends December 31st.
2. Report back on your Pin It and Do It success. On November 15th I’ll post a linky for you to link up. Ideally this will come in the form of a blog or tumblr post. Or you can post about it on Facebook or Flickr if you don’t have a blog or tumblr. Or create a board on Pinterest for this challenge. If none of the above, report your success in the Wrap-Up Post comments.
3. Anyone is welcome to join. If you need an invite to Pinterest, let me know your email address and I’ll send an invite.

The Levels:
Timid Pinner: 1-3 Pins
Pinterested: 4-7 Pins
Pin Obsessed: 8+ Pins

Some Pinterest Etiquette and Courtesies:
–If you create a pin from a post, make sure you are pinning the true URL of the post and not the main website so folks can easily find the link again.
–If you embed a pinned picture on your own blog, make it clear that it is not your original picture–a link back to the original blog post is always appreciated.

Important Note: Make sure to note the original pin wherever you complete your wrap-up (or if you do progress reports) to give the originator credit and make the pin easy for others to find.

Off you go my little lovelies—start scouring your Pinterest boards for those awesome things you want to do in the next 45 days.

Yay!!! Happy Pinning and Doing!

  1. When I first heard you mention this on twitter, I didn’t think I’d be able to join in because so many of things I plan on doing I wouldn’t be able to post about because they will be gifts. But since this goes until Dec. 31st, all those gifts will have been given! So YAY, I can play along again! :D

  2. I am so excited about a new Pin It Do It! I am hoping I will be able to join in once again ~ I’m going to scour the Pinterest boards today :) Thanks for being such a great host!

  3. Also, because of tight finances, I am making a bunch of homemade gifts for Christmas this year. This will be perfect, because I can post these gift DIY’s after Christmas and still have them count. YAY!

  4. I’m in too!
    Last PI&DI, I completed 2 pins that I didn’t post about, so this time around I’m going to write a post before starting another pin.

  5. I am bound and determined to make mostly homemade Christmas gifts this year because I feel like my family has gotten away from the spirit of Christmas. So I am aiming to make special presents for people this year. Which means Pinterest! Sign me up for Pinterested because I’ll probably make several versions of the same projects. Thanks for hosting!

  6. After following everyone’s last challenge pins, I figured what the heck!! I’m going for the timid!! Love the pin and the fun to come!!
