Once again, I love Pinterest. What? You still haven’t checked it out. Want an invite? Let me know. Anywhoo, while I super puffy heart that shiz, there are some things that drive me crazy. I just find myself starting at that beautiful montage of photos going “really? Are you serious?”. Then my girl Laura was ranting about the same thing the other day so we are double teaming you (giggity). So when you are done reading here, hop over to her casa and get some more snarky goodness. Here we go…
Paint chips projects – I get it. Free stuff to make things. But really? Like construction paper is that expensive. Hell even schools can fund that stuff. I mean some things I see past the paint chips and just see really cool art. But some? You are just trying too hard to reuse something. I’m sorry. It’s silly
Painting walls with chalkboard paint – let me caveat this “for your kids” adult with a meal menu board? Fine. Awesome way to keep score in a bar for darts? You got it. But teaching your children that writing on the wall is cool? Not so much. Also, think of all that chalk dust. Have you seen a real kid after sidewalk chalk? Gross. Now to offer a little constructive criticism, magnetic paint would be the way to go. Do that and buy cool magnets. Similar learning without the mess.
Matte nail polish – yeah it doesn’t have sparkles in it but that shit shines. I fell for this and bought some. It doesn’t work. Fuck you, photoshop.
Blast from the past boards – just why? Why do you need a board of rainbow bright and shitty jewelry. I just don’t get it. Are you going to get drunk one night and go through it singing Paula Abdul. If so, please exit the premises.
So what pinterest trends make you shake your head?
I can’t take all the credit for the idea of making fun of things. Jill over at @babyrabies has shared some serious #pinterestsnark.
