So I’ve really taken this Pinterest thing way too far today. My 6-packs of normal beer have been holiday’d to present as gifts. My mother in law told me that I’m in charge of desserts for Christmas Eve, so I started pinning stuff that I know I’ll never ever bring down to share. I even tried cleaning my bathroom with white vinegar and blue Dawn. (Which assaults your senses. My nose is very offended right now.)
I won’t knock it now that I’ve joined the masses of women who pin random ass remedies for sore throats, soap scum, and highly allergic children. But it’s seriously taken over my life. And I knew this would happen, which is why I avoided it and everyone’s Facebook overshares when it came out last year-ish. But too many people kept talking about how many fantastic things they were discovering in the deep crevasses of the interwebz. So I got curious. Because maybe I wanted to be more creative too.
Some… not so great. Like using vinegar (again!) to clean my make up brushes. Yeah – not so much. Or those flourless chocolate cookies that were really only made with powdered sugar and chocolate powder. (Chemistry 101 anyone?)
It’s also awkward when you start following your mom and she’s pinning holiday jello shot recipes. Ummmm…
I also use it to save stuff that I find on Etsy. In fact, I had my own Christmas List board because I was tired of answering the parents’ questions about lists and having them shop at stores they’ve never heard of. Here, I can just point them to a link online and have them click-add to an Amazon shopping cart. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
