Gettin’ Crafty {Poconos #Pinterest Peeps}

For so many Pinterest has practically become the Holy Grail.  Need a delectable recipe, log onto Pinterest, want to repurpose wine bottles, log onto Pinterest, need to reorganize your home, log onto Pinterest.  You get my point.  Pinterest has an endless amount of ideas or what us “in kids” say, Pinspiration. And, I can certainly attest to it all, considering I have 57 boards and have pinned over 2,700 items.

At the same token, Pinterest can suck you in for hours and hours and hours. And all you’ve done is pin, pin, pin with nothing tangible to show for it.  So, I decided to go out on a limb and create a little Facebook group called Poconos Pinterest Peeps.  Our purpose, to meet once a month & as I call it, “Get Our Craft On.”  The group is about getting from behind our computers, and in place, socializing and recreating the pins that inspire us.

After a month of pinning to our group board & chatting it up on Facebook, we met last night.  It was a shame we had a ton of last minute cancellations, but we made the best of it.

Prior to meeting, the group voted to recreate these adorable Dryer Vent Snowmen found on Timeless Treasures.

We arrived at the library with our Pinterest inspired snacks (totally forgot to take pics of those) and craft materials & got busy.  And without further ado, her are our cuties.

We decided to wait till we got home to dazzle them up with sparkle, in order to avoid a huge mess in the library and in our cars.  But all in all they are quite darling!

I’m feeling really good about this group. I forsee many more crafts & friendships developed.  Pinterest continues to inspire.  Onto finding next months project.  We’ll be making a wreath.

  1. Wow. What a great idea to meet with other Pinterest users and actually DO the projects you have pinned. I am guilty of pinning so much but spending more time pinning than creating!!! Where are you and your group located? I’m in Upstate NY – email me if you are too! I’d love to join your group. Oh and the snowmen are ADORABLE. Found you through Just Something I Whipped UP Linky!
