13 Things On Pinterest
Let’s be real, Pinterest is visually awesome, but it’s an aspirational place. We all get lost for hours pinning ideas to various boards, but how many do you actually DO?
Are you really going to build that gorgeous fireplace in your kitchen? Did you take the time to carve a watermelon bunny for Easter? Are you going to crochet baby sandals? Are you going to do your nails like Tetris pieces?
Pinterest is a pretty place to dream, but what about things you’ll actually accomplish?
I’ve created a pinboard of places I want to visit when I go to Iceland this summer with Team Diabetes, but mostly I pin stuff and then forget I ever pinned them. The ideas are inspirational for a few minutes, and then they just land in a digital junk drawer.
So let’s break it down. Here’s 13 Pinterest things you can, will, and should actually do. A few crafts, a few recipes, all simple.

It's a simple idea: find a fiver, and put it in a jar. I do that with all my spare change,and end up with a few hundred for vacation mad money. Imagine if I set my heights higher?

What a great idea. Spend a Sunday chopping things up for the week and store them in simple freezer bags for quick weekly access.
