I was so excited last week to hear the announcement for the Winter Pinterest Challenge! This challenge was the brain child of two fabulous bloggers (Sherry & Katie) and each time they invite two additional bloggers to help host. The point of the challenge is simple, stop pinning and start doing. Pick a project you pinned and you have been putting off and get busy.

- Sherry from Young House Love
- Katie from Bower Power
- Megan from The Remodeled Life
Michelle from Decor & The Dog
