4 new challenges_________________________

Here is a breakdown of the next FOUR challenges:

Monday, February 18th - Paint It!
Paint is the easiest way to change the look of something! Whether you paint an entire room or spray paint something the size of your it up!

Monday, February 25th- Clean It!
Who doesn't love a clean space? Show us what you've been cleaning lately {preferably not your toilet - unless you have a really fabulous toilet}. You could even just share some of your favorite cleaning tips!

Monday, March 4th - Wear It!
You know those thousands of outfits you've pinned to your Pinterest boards?! Well, it's time to stop pinning & start wearing! Choose one {or more} of your favorite fashion pins and show us how it looks on YOU.

Monday, March 11th - Hop To It!
Easter is just around the corner! We want to see all of your fabulous Easter ideas, crafts, and/or projects!

The fun begins again NEXT Monday! We will be sharing our "PAINT IT" projects with YOU & you will be sharing yours with US!

Link up on JUST ONE of our blogs & your project will be seen on ALL NINE blogs!  We will be sharing our favorites on social media as well as pinning those items to our Pinterest boards!! So don't miss out!!   We can't wait to see your projects!  
And if that wasn't enough to get this Monday off to a great start, I've got a fun little tip for you too!  In case you want to shower anyone with red kisses on Valentine's Day........

I'm over at Pinterest Told Me To today talking about Pinterest inspired fashion and the power of accessories.  If you've never met Sheaffer before you're in for a real treat.  Her blog is filled with tons of  great pinspiring outfits. (It's the perfect place to get a jump start on the Wear It Challenge mentioned above.)  And if you love watching The Bachelor she also does some pretty awesome recap posts.  Head on over to say hi, and see how I got all weird and awkward in front of the camera and pretended to know something about fashion.

Hope you had a great weekend!
