the plan for the next 52 weeks

has anyone seen these three, i have a new plan to tell them about .... anywhere? ... i'll let them bring back the eggs?
i absolutely loved doing pinterest 365 but needed this last week off to reinvigorate and have a wee break!  having said that, i was also very aware that once 365 days were over i wanted to carry on doing something and set new goals for the coming year.  pinterest has given me that little something i have been looking for ... motivation ... to get up and do rather than just admire from afar others ability to create.

without getting too personal, i have always had grand ideas but never figured i was good enough to carry them out ... apparently flooding therapy works because not only did i decide that finished was better than perfect i also shared my imperfect creating rather publicly on my blog ;)

the only downside in doing a creation a day inspired from pinterest was the lack of time to do any BIG projects ... you know, the ones that take more than a day for mere mortals to finish.  so a couple of months ago i formulated a plan for once pinterest 365 was complete.  this new plan involved weeks, thus giving me the time to do larger projects ... my sweet husband hid at this point when i began telling him of my new plan ... i have yet to find him.

so for the coming 52 weeks i plan to take on one BIG pinterest inspired project a week ... and by big i mean anything that will take me more than a day to finish.  no i will not be building a house, boat, summer collection, shed, studio, or any combination of the above!  i will be posting throughout the week about the project's progress and showing the finished project on sundays (NZT).  and because i LOVE pinterest recipes, saturday will become pinterest baking day, where i'll be trying a new to me recipe each week that i have pinned and just NEED to try :)

so that's the plan for the coming year, project one will start on the 25th of june so it gives me this week to have some fun relaxing before i take on a new year of creating!

Your blog is awesome!! I too love pinterest & I'm trying to decide what's projects I can do but since I work more than 50 hours a week it's hard to do but I also have a foodie blog & your post has made me designate a day to bake too!

I hope you had a great weekend!
