We have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest. On the one hand, we love all of the ideas and inspiration we find there. On the other hand, we hate all of the ideas and inspiration we find there. 😉
It can be so overhwelming! Especially when you see a grouping of ideas with titles like…
“100 Ways to Decorate with an Empty Toilet Paper Roll”
“75 Ways to Repurpose a Tampon Box”
“50 Dinner Ideas (you hope and pray!) You’re Kids Will Love”
Because, you see, at the end of the day, we might be able to handle 1 or 2 ways to decorate with an empty toilet paper roll or repurpose a tampon box (you never know!) or hope and pray for something new our kids will actually like to eat. But when we see those LARGE numbers it frankly makes us want to run the other way!
So, we thought that maybe, just maybe, we weren’t the only ones getting a tad overwhelmed. And while it was very tempting to put together the biggest collection of fun and fabulous pumpkin ideas that has ever been or will ever be created, we decided instead to just offer you 5.
Five Fun and Fabulous Pumpkin Ideas
Like this Book Page Pumpkin
And this Feathered Owl Pumpkin.
How about these White and Gold Decoupage Pumpkins.
And this Pumpkin Clock that even Cinderella would approve of. 😉
And last but not least a pumpkin for those of us needing a little more bling in our lives!
So, what do you think? Is 5 a good number?
Not too many to feel overwhelmed but not too few to feel…well..underwhelmed?
Because, let’s face it, while we might feel that momentary thrill when we see the words “1,000 Things You Can Put in a Mason Jar”, somewhere between seeing those words and actually DOING even one out of the 1,000, real life tends to happen.
Like homework and basketball practice and chin hairs and making dinners which you hope and pray everyone will eat without asking “how many more bites?”.
So, we’re making a vow to you now that we will do our best to not contribute to the condition commonly known as “Pinterest anxiety”.
But, we can’t guarantee that one of these days we might not just come up with the most amazing tampon box repurposing project you’ve ever seen! 😉
Happy Fall sweet friends!
You are onto something here….quality over quantity any time. Maybe it will start a trend:-)

Link exchange is nothing else but it is simply placing the other person’s webpage link on your page at appropriate
place and other person will also do same in favor of you.

Howdy, There’s no doubt that your site could possibly be having web browser compatibility
issues. Whenever I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in IE,
it’s got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to
give you a quick heads up! Other than that, fantastic website!

Actually I do run away when I see those “100 ways” Pinterest posts or Blog posts. It makes me feel someone got lazy and decided to just collect a bunch of others work and slap them together rather than come up some with quality content of their own. Smaller numbers are great because they could be something that actually struck you as a project you want to try.

Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Taking the time and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and don’t manage to get anything done.

These are great! Especially the book covered paper. I just bought a couple of pumpkins to play around with and did something really simple with black permanent marker. They were for outside, but these are so much fun, and I may have to try that book cover one for inside the house.
