Before I get to this week's inspiration, do you know how Point of View came to be? Amy told the story on her blog last week, and I think it's important to share. This is what Amy wrote, "When Jonie and I first discussed the concept over lunch one day last year, we had both recently participated in craft competitions. What we loved about the competition was the challenge - the opportunity to push ourselves out of our comfort zone and try new things, or perhaps finally find the motivation to make something that had been on our list to make forever, but we just never had the need. What I didn't like about the competition was the judging. I didn't like having my project, that I loved and worked hard on, compared to the others in the contest. I didn't like losing. ;) So, we came up with Point of View - a chance to push ourselves, to try new projects and to create projects regularly. (Let's face it, sometimes we need a little external motivation ;) But I also wanted it to be more than just our group's projects - I really want to create a platform for everyone to participate, so we can all benefit from the motivation, the excitement and the opportunity to let our own "Point of View" be seen and heard." I love this story, and it's exactly why I jumped at the chance to join Point of View when Amy asked me last year. No competition... just motivating and challenging yourself to get creative and try new things.
This week's Pin It inspiration is a rainbow of crafty goodness. There's a little something for everyone... woodworking, sewing, paper crafts, crafts for kids, and a recipe. Check out all of this color...
I am in love with this colorful wooden doormat from Lowe's Creative Ideas. Find the DIY instructions here.
Hope these pins inspire you to get working on one of those Pinterest projects you've been thinking about. Or maybe you just started thinking about one of these inspiration pins :) Whatever the project, this month's Point of View link party is a great excuse to get motivated and get started!

Please don't pin from here. These are not my projects. Proper pinning etiquette is so important to make sure that people get credit for their work. Thank you!
