Dear Pinterest, you give me way too much credit. You believe in me way more than I believe in myself. And the following projects will prove my point. The following Pins are for people with a gentle touch and determination.
I’ll start off with the following Pin from Everything Organized.
Light Bulb Vase Craft- http://everythingorganized.org/light-bulb-vase-craft/
I would go through a dozen light bulbs before I ever completed a vase…this reminds me of building a ship in a bottle. This is definitely one Pin I won’t be attempting. But if you’re up to the DIY challenge, please don’t hesitate to attempt it.
Next up is a very cute Valentine’s Day project for your main squeeze from Visual Heart.
52 Things I Love About You- http://visualheart.com/2012/02/19/52-things-i-love-about-you/
Don’t get me wrong, I love my husband to the moon and back but having to sit down and think of 52 things I love about him then to type up those 52 things then to print those out then to glue them….well, you get the point. I would get through 10 cards then call it quits and buy a Hallmark card.
And last but not least this next Pin would just make me depressed after I created it.
Life Planner- http://diymamablog.com/2014/03/21/life-planner/
I love the idea…planning your life with a calendar, meal plan, grocery list, etc. But I know me and after a couple of weeks of using it I would go back to my Post-It Notes stuck everywhere with my to do lists written on them. Then everyday I would see that planner on my dining room table taunting me, laughing at me until eventually I would have to burn it to stop the voices in my head!!!! DIY Mama is way more organized than I am. She deserves a standing ovation!
So please Pinterest don’t put so much faith in my DIY, life planning and crafting skills. I just can’t handle the bitter taste of failure.
