Pinning and Painting

So, you know those pins of yours that are sitting around in those nicely organized Pinterest boards not actually being done?

If you are hanging your head in shame.  DON’T.  Get a grip!  Those things aren’t one big to do list.  I am mostly saying those words for my benefit but in case you all need a reminder.

DON’T SUCCUMB TO THE STRESS OF PINTEREST.  THERE IS NO NEED TO FEEL PRESSURE TO DO EVERY DAMN CRAFT IDEA YOU PIN.

If fact, I have a better idea.  STOPPING PINNING THEM!

That being said, we did one craft.  We tried one pinned idea.

So much for the perfect pinned homemade finger painting moment.

I share this little story as reminder to all that if you are striving for the perfection you see on PINTEREST; it is possible for the project idea to be realized but the moment may still be a total crash and burn.

There should be some sort of fine print warning on the bottom of all those family friendly crafty ideas……..

*****Warning:  May cause toddler tears and or tantrums.*******
