So even though I feel that I've only barely chipped the mountain that is my Pinterest collection, when I look back at the things I've done over the course of a month I realize that I kicked this challenge's ass. Take that May!
All of the photos below are my own.
May Photo A Day. Original Pin. From Fat Mum Slim
I've been doing fairly well with this particular pin--though not so great at taking the pictures on the actual assigned days. But still.
Daily Notecard Journal. Original Pin. From Design Sponge.
I think that I'm caught up to about the 23rd of May. Bahahaha! But I did find this little wicker box at Hobby Lobby that I plan to wrap a ribbon around to pretty up.
Paint Card Bookmarks. Original Pin. From Bella Carta.
Love these. Scott hammered in the eyelet for me and I did a bit of trimming with the original paint cards and glued two together so there is pattern on each side. The flower is a stamp using StazOn ink.
Frosting Rosettes. Original Pin. From I Am Baker.
If you click on the original link then you'll see that my flowers are a bit softer than the original, which works well for this cake. Definitely need to use a stiffer frosting next time rather than cream cheese frosting, but I think this would look great on cupcakes. Very easy to do!
Banana Cake. Original Pin. From Exclusively Food.
I'll admit that I was surprised when this little cake didn't rise but it was SO good. Very dense but very moist. I brought the leftovers up to work and it was devoured with many compliments. Will definitely make again.
Bacon and Cheese Frittata. Original Pin. From All Recipes.
A coworker gave me this link when I was asking for springform recipes. It was very tasty but I think I like a crust with a dish like this.
Potato au Gratin. Original Pin. From My Recipes.Com (sorta)
This was half pin and half experiment. The original pin has a crust which I really wanted to do but didn't have any pie dough in my freezer/fridge and didn't want to take the time to make it right then. Note to self, make up some pie dough and put in freezer.
Tortilla Pie. Original Pin. From Martha Stewart.
Thanks to JoAnn for introducing me to this recipe! It was very tasty and has endless possibilities for filling. Will definitely make again.
Pride and Prejudice Mug. Original Pin. From Brookish on Etsy.
Yes. I bought this for Mother's Day and my 6 year anniversary. :) I did use Scott's credit card if that counts.
Pinterest Whale Text (my text in blue). Original Pin. From Tumblr.
Need I say more? ...
I mean really. Kicked this challenge in the butt!
I'd like to attempt a wrap-up post with everyone's progress, so please make sure you link up your own progress! There are already so many great links for you to check out. I bet it will help you get Pinterested.
There has been some interest in continuing on with this challenge. At this juncture I cannot host monthly but I do plan on a Pin It Do It Redux this fall. Tell me--September or October??
