Tis the Season to be Pinning . . . and Doing

Trish at Love, Laughter and a Touch of Insanity has announced the Holiday version of her now-famous Pin It/Do It Challenge - so start decking those halls!   For the October version, I did mostly craft pins.  For Christmas, the pins will be more focused on decorating . . . but you know I won't be able to resist crafting.

I am signing up at the "Pin Obsessed" level, which means I will accomplish eight or more pins between Nov. 15th and Dec. 31.  The majority will be Christmas-related, but I may throw in a few Thanksgiving and New Year ideas as well.

Here's what's in the planning stages so far:  Christmas trees made from books and tomato cages (not together); ornaments made from felt and book pages (again, not together);  decorations made from wrapping paper scraps and old magazines (you get my drift); creative re-uses of summer porch decorations; quilting; and my FAVORITE pin idea ever -- You've been RACKed!

RACK stands for Random Acts of Christmas Kindness.  Details in a later post but, basically, I will be bestowing random bits of Christmas cheer on unsuspecting friends and strangers during the month of December. Can't wait!

Trish will be posting a link-up on Thursday, so start lining up your holiday pins. 


  1. Sounds like another great pinning challenge! I wonder if those trees from books were what we used to make years ago from magazines. Will be interested to see what you come up with over the challenge!


  2. I love the christmas tree out of books idea - - -

  3. OOOO. All of those ideas sound amazing!

  4. I can't wait to hear about your RACK ideas! I think that we may need to do some of those this year as well.

    Thanks for joining again Tami! You are a Pin it and Do it Rockstar!

  5. Your book ideas sound great and I can't wait to hear more about your RACK ideas!! I'm going with 4-7 pins this time around.
