I needed a recipe. Really. That was the only reason I ventured over there. What I ran into was enough to make Martha Stewart rethink her entire career.
DIY Reindeer Treats? Why isn't that a picture of Oreos and carrots with a bite mark?
DIY Holiday Sweater Pillow? Do the recipient a real favor and donate the old sweater to goodwill.
The next refresh got more disturbing:
A DIY Holiday Bucket List? Don't need all those blanks to fill in 1. Survive. 2. Don't Let Any Toddlers Find Out Santa Isn't Real 3. Don't Drink Publicly If You're Pregnant.
The DIY Thank You Cards look lovely, but they also appear to have been created by a master paper craftsman. For the amateurs that will be at any/all holiday exchanges I attend this season, keep in mind you can never go wrong with Kate Spade stationary.
I did one more refresh to see if maybe I'd stumbled into Pinterest during a Holiday Twilight Zone, but no; no I hadn't. It continued:
A lovely, crafted Christmas card holder. Mine is called "Scotch Tape."
A gratitude game to teach your children gratitude. Bribes that involve Spider-Man fruit snacks are just as effective.
A New Year's Eve craft that lets you craft something out for each hour leading up to 2014. I suppose this is for those who can't get their crafting fix out of Christmas, who I would imagine are not that crafty in the first place.
Ladies, for the love of God, lay off Pinterest with the holiday DIY-ing. Unless, of course, you're DIY-ing it with a box of wine and an Amazon Prime membership. Instagram that and I will follow you for life.
