There’s a new epidemic sweeping America…Pinterest Depression. There are scores of blogs and websites showing ‘Pinterest Fails’ – where the actual creation doesn’t quite measure up to the pinspiration.
Growing up with roots deep in DIY mode, I love tackling projects and big ideas with a DIY approach. It’s so much fun to create things from scratch and watch them develop. But, when it comes to critical moments – sometimes DIY has to take a backseat to sanity.
The night before the baby shower isn’t quite the time to try the four-tier diaper cake centerpiece for the first time, and the week of your wedding isn’t the best time to try to start creating elaborate programs from scratch.
And, remember that not every person was meant for every photo – sometimes a cute picture is just that – and doesn’t have to be recreated 100%. Don’t stress about making everything perfect – use the ideas for inspiration and let your creativity fly!
Give yourself time, patience, and lots of practice and you’ll have so much more fun with your pin-obsession.
