I entertained the idea of doing a Pinterest-based theme for the A to Z Challenge fairly early on and took some notes to that effect, writing the letters of the alphabet down the left side of a page in a spiral notebook and jotting down ideas from my own Pinterest boards next to each one. For someone who doesn't do a lot of planning, I was off to a pretty spectacular start!
(Something to be noted about doing 26 Pinterest challenges in a month is that writing down some ideas is not sufficient. Pinterest projects require things like ingredients and craft supplies and what are probably a number of very difficult-to-find items.)
'Twas the night before the first post is due, and I pick up my handy dandy notebook (shout out to Steve) to see what I had noted for "A" aaaaaand...
Nothing. I filled in ideas for about 16 letters, but "A" wasn't one of them.
I frantically started going through my Pinterest boards, looking for something that I have all the supplies for AND starts with the letter "A" AND isn't too hard, because, well, I'm lazy. Fortunately, I found something. It's even a DIY project that I have been thinking about doing for ages.
Here's the Pinterest pin:
|See? The padding is trying to make a getaway.|
|Look! I found a dime!|
|I didn't have the kind of caulk that uses a caulk gun;|
I only had the squeezy kind.
|This kind of hurt my hands.|
|All done! Time to dry!|
Now I get to spend the rest of the day picking silicone latex caulk off the back of my rug.....
