Debi from Still With Nothing of Importance definitely pinned and then did this month! She made several crafts including Black Out Poetry Card and did some cooking including veggie broth, rice pudding and soup. She couldn’t share some of the crafts because they’re gifts so I can’t wait to see what they are.

Joy Weese Moll from Joy’s Book Blog used Pinterest in order to plan her trip to Arkansas! She did 12 out of the 21 things she planned to do. Awesome!

Lisa from Books.Lists.Life made several different pins and wrote about them in her Wrap Up Post–including some crescent roll desserts, a beautiful embroidery, a million jumping jacks (ok so 300), and a few recipes.

Lisa from Lit and Life once again uses her pinboards to organize her travels (I love how she does this!). She outlines several of the places she pinned for her trip to Missouri.

Me!! This wasn’t my best month but I did manage to make four  food pins and I bought a pinned quilt pattern. I also created these little oreo mummies right at the last second!

So, most of you know now that I was out of town the last third of the month which means that I haven’t visited many of these posts yet. Eeeep! Now you know where I’ll be today! I really really hope that you’ll take a few minutes to hop around to some of these awesome posts as well.

Finally, I would LOVE if you would take a minute to answer a few questions. I’m contemplating making the challenge a monthly thing but if I do that then I don’t think I can keep up with these wrap-ups. Also, would you guys get tired of it if it was every month? We had great success in May and October but not so much in August.

  1. Thanks for doing the wrap-up and for hosting this. It’s nice to be able to see quickly what everyone has done. That is a lot of pins!

  2. Thanks again for hosting. Learned a lot, found some coolblogs and got a lot done – and had fun! Can’t wait for the next one.

  3. For the record: I completed about fifty-five more pins (or maybe just three or four) for the massive Halloween bash, but I don’t think I managed to get any pictures (WHAT?), and I doubt I’ll double back and create a post to relive the madness. Just know that I was here in spirit if not in actual presence! Thanks.

  4. So many new recipes to try! I did a terrible job this month. I had such high hopes but got completely distracted with other things around here. Like making a cape – which I suppose I could have pinned if I’d have known I was going to make one!

  5. I totally missed this and could have definitely used a jumpstart in using Pinterest. I can’t keep up with you energetic folks, but love hearing about it all after the fact!

  6. I actually made more things and did a wrap-up post. It was fun, thanks for hosting! Now to browse
    through all of these and start re-pinning!

  7. Gah! I really should’ve officially joined. This was an unexpectedly good Pinning/Doing month for me. I think I completed 5 or 6.

  8. Wow…well done everyone!!! And Trish, darling, what an awesome wrap-up post–I absolutely can’t wait to have some time to sit and go read all the posts! Thanks again for hosting this, Trish! It was not only fun fun fun but productive as well. :)
