Calling all Pinterest Addicts....Join us in the #PinAddicts Challenge

I am so excited to be part of the #PinAddicts Team helping to run a fantastic new Pinterest Blogging Challenge organised by the fabulous Kerry. You find out much more information about the challenge on her lovely blog here.

In a nutshell we are looking for people who are addicted to both Pinterest and to making stuff to sign up to the Pinterest Challenge and make one item from their Pinterest boards each month. (If you have never heard of Pinterest - its a fantastic way of 'pinning' images you come across on the internet to virtual mood boards for you to look at later for inspiration. The great thing about it is that all the photos you 'pin' save the original link to wherever you found them. This makes it great for saving tutorials etc. as you can always find the tutorial you spotted months ago. You can also 'repin' ideas from other people. Have a look at my boards here to get an idea of what its like). Be very careful it is completely addictive and will completely take over your life.

So each month you choose one item from your board and make that item - it could be sewing, crochet, papercraft, baking or a DIY project. You choose whatever takes your fancy. You don't have to be a great crafter just willing to have a go and put a photo on your blog of both the original 'pin' and your attempt at recreating it.

On the first Monday of each month starting on Monday 6 February the host blog (one of the #PinAddicts team) will open the challenge for a week and you simply post a link to your blog so we can all have a little look at all the 'makes'. All week members of the #PinAddicts Team will be posting about their crafting efforts too to help inspire you make you laugh. The following week one lucky blogger will be chosen at random to win a lovely prize. The rest of us can simply bask in the glory of the collective loveliness we have all made! Then it all starts again the following month.

Make sense? Want to join in? Go to Kerrys launch blog post and say hi. Please feel free to tweet about it too (use hash tag #PinAddicts). The more the merrier and you can join in on any month. Don't worry if you don't have a blog. Just email us a picture of what you have made.
