It taunts me with its fancy pages of, "Look at me. Look at my awesomeness. If you had any skills at all, you could do this too."
I find great ideas and cute crafts, then think about doing them. Note the word, "think". Most of the time that's as far as I'll get, but every once in a while, I'll totally go for it.
Take Groundhog's Day for instance. If you've followed this blog, you already know about my mad Pinterest skills. I can take an adorable idea like this:
My latest bout with Pinterest came tonight. Our daughter's dolls have all gone through some strange sort of wind tunnel of doom. For some reason, they all have crazy hair that could house small colonies of rats.
Turning to (what else but) Pinterest, I found the answer to my prayers. You don't have to throw those dolls away, noooooo. You don't have to cut their hair. All you have to do is mix two tablespoons of liquid fabric softener with eight ounces of water and spray it throughout the doll's hair. Easy enough, right? What could be better?!
We started with who else, but her Tangled doll, Rapunzel.
I know I need to just stop pretending that anything I see on Pinterest will come out half as well once I try to do it. It's a vicious cycle - and I can't seem to get off this train.
I'll be sure to fill you in on any remedy or recipe I try that actually does work, if such a thing exists.
Until then Pinterest, I'll be watching you. Aaaalways watching...
