Autumn 2015 Pin it and Do it Challenge



It’s Fall!! Oh wait, it’s just the first day of September. But that means that Autumn starts in 21 days. The stores are already filled with Halloween decor and fall foliage. There’s just something about the changing of the seasons that is so exciting to me. I find it energizing and I can temporarily be fooled into thinking I can do all the things! All the crafts! All the baking!

Just me?  Nah…I doubt it. Just think about the smell of pumpkin and pie spices baking and tell me that doesn’t get you a little excited for the change from summer to fall.

It’s been two years since I’ve held an official Pin it and Do it Challenge, but I’m bringing it back for two rounds–once in September and once in October. The link-ups will correspond with the third week Inspiration on Monday of each month (Sept 21 and Oct 19th). These link-ups will become Pinspiration on Monday…you know, because I can.  Note–if you do not use Pinterest, you can still link up your non-Pinterest-y Inspiration posts per normal on these weeks.

Pin it and Do it Details

What – The premise is simple–choose at least one thing that you have pinned and do it! This could be cooking that recipe, experimenting with photos, trying a new styled outfit, doing all those leg squats, reading that book–however you use Pinterest, you can make this challenge work for you. If you have any questions about whether something might work, just ask! I know my first project for the challenge will be this Halloween cross-stitch.

Where – Sharing what you’ve done is best done on your blog, but tumblr or instagram could absolutely work as well. Please use #PinItDoIt on social media to keep in touch.

When – Link-ups for your progress will be September 21st and October 19th. Feel free to participate in just one month or both and you can post any time and as many times as you’d like. If you want an email reminder, let me know and I promise to only bug you once.

Why – Because sometimes we all just need a group challenge or a kick in the pants to get stuff done.

What do you think? Ready to do/make some those pins you’ve been collecting?

PS–leave your Pinterest URL in the comments below so I can make sure I’m following you!

    • Oh hey–happy September! I momentarily forgot why you were so quiet until I popped over to your blog and remembered. ;) Glad you’ll be back for some pinning action! Tis the season!

  1. Yay! I’ve pinned SO many things. And as I type this, there are four projects sitting unfinished … guess I should get working on something! I might have to get some audiobooks to listen to while I work on some crochet projects … two birds with one stone, right?

  2. I’m looking forward to this event. I don’t pin anything that is crafty so I’m not sure I can participate but I’ll think of a way to Pin It and Do It. Wheels turning. Maybe I’ll actually look around on Pinterest. Is it bad that I only use Pinterest to remind myself of books, recipes and other articles I read on the web? I never scroll through Pinterest itself. Oops.

    Maybe I’ll use your event to actually update my boards for The Adventure List cause I’m slacking fiercely!

    • Read the “What” section of this post for some ideas. This is not necessarily a crafty type challenge! In the past people have visited some of the places they have pinned, done make-up tricks, workouts, recipes (lots of recipes), read a book, done a task (I have some technical blog things pinned and actually took the time to do one of them). I bought myself a mug that I had pinned. Really–the challenge is endless!!! I look forward to seeing how you use the challenge. :)

      • Girl look at you commenting on your own blog. lol You never do that. Yeah I’m looking forward to upping my Pinterest game.

  3. Oh, I’m definitely in for this go-around! For whatever reason, I’ve had a renewed interest in Pinterest (ha!) and this will be the perfect kick in the pants that I need to actually do some of the things I’ve saved (including a furniture renovation project … yikes!). Thanks for bringing this back!
