I have been a bit worried this week about what to blog about since our quest to retexture our walls is painfully slow and not so fun to blog about (or read about) daily.
I did some blog hopping this morning as I was drinking my coffee to see what was happening in the blogosphere, and it seems as though my dilemma has been solved for me!
Young House Love and Bower Power have concocted a Pinterest Challenge - a call to make at least one item that you have pinned and saved to Pinterest.
(For those of you who aren't familiar with Pinterest, it's my crack cocaine, my kryptonite...It's an online bulletin board. You can "pin" pictures from anywhere - the internet, your computer, etc - and Pinterest saves them for you on different boards that you create. Those of you already addicted can follow me here: http://pinterest.com/nbulich/)
Like them and many of you, I have been pinning away since I found out about the site about 6 months ago, but I don't think I have whipped up any of that inspiration for my own home. I have decided to change that and participate in the challenge since sanding plaster isn't too exciting for you or me.
What will I make, you ask? A cork ball!
In case you are asking yourself what a cork ball is, let me show you some fine examples.
I already scored all the cork I need thanks to our trip to Healdsburg and Lindsay, who asked for corks at each of the wineries we went to when I was too shy to. And I picked up a foam ball at Michael's a couple weeks back when I made my fabric wrapped cork board. So now it's time to start glue gunnin'! I'll let you know how it goes. That and the sanding...
