Thank you thank you to all the folks who participated in the February Pin it and Do it. A lot of you regulars came back to play and there were even some unofficial participates on twitter.
Chrisbookarama had the holiday spirit in mind when she crocheted this awesome Valentine Coffee Cozy and the Chinese New Year Snake. Tell me you've seen a cuter snake before (you haven't).
Tami @ Just One More Thing was once again the #PinitDoit queen with several projects including beach signs for her bathroom, rolled paper cross, 2 pincushions, apron, recipes, gift tags and my favorite - 100 Calorie Snacks which I convinced my own company to try out thanks to her (p)inspiration.
Teri @ Henningsen Happenings leaped into the spring with a floral wreath for her front door rounding out wreaths for all of the seasons and major holidays.
Uniflame @ She Likes Bento three vegan recipes including potato and zucchini latkes, avocado hummus, and carrot risotto
Lisa @ Lit and Life always finds the most creative ways to use Pinterest for this challenge. She began by watching several movies that she pinned and wrapped up with some stainless steel cleaner and taco seasoning.
Maria @ A bookworm's life worked up a cooking storm for this month's Pin it Do it. She made the most delicious sounding Salted Caramel Brownies, Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding, and Sweet Potato Chips
Melissa @ Avid Reader's Musings finished a bunch of pins for February including a collage of her Penguin postcards, cleaning her dryer lint trap, a broquet (my favorite), potato soup, french onion soup, woooooo!
Larissa @ Like People and Butterflies had a couple of misses this round of #PinitDoit but she also had some winners as well. She created Letter Formation Worksheets for her kiddo, a Green Smoothie, Chocolate Chia Seeds Pudding, and finally she made a Kid's Corner for her daughter.
JoAnn @ Lakeside Musing had great luck in February with her food pins. She made Four Crockpot Chicken Successes , and also squeezed in a few more pins with yummy Butternut Squash Soup and a quicker way to make baked potatoes (which is genius).
Finally, I mostly used Pinterest this month to make things I've already made before (smoothies, spaghetti sauce, steel cut oats in the crockpot) but I also made some enchilada pasta and crispy potatoes (which made for even crispier leftovers). I put up a big mirror inspired by some decorating pins.
I haven't decided on a return date for the next round but right now I'm leaning towards May. I think that February might have been too close to the holidays and April is next month, so... And always, if you have any suggestions on how to improve, I'd love to know. Do you guys miss the initial sign-up?
I do hope you'll join us next time and if you make something from Pinterest in the meantime, I'd love to know about it via #PinitDoit hash on twitter. Do you have any upcoming Pinterest plans? Perhaps for gardening or Easter or spring cleaning?
