In “Anna Karenina,” Leo Tolstoy writes: “Spring is the time of plans and projects.” The great 19th century Russian novelist clearly had Pinterest in mind. In fact, didn’t I see that quote embroidered on a pillow and pinned to a board somewhere?
Yes, it is officially spring. I know this because my Pinterest feed is a pastel blur of bunnies, eggs and impossibly advanced crafts and confections that mothers everywhere are apparently whipping up this Easter season. Pinterest: making me feel terrible about my décor and parenting decisions since 2011.
If, like me, you need a bit of pinspiration this spring, The World’s Pinterest page is a good place to start (pinterest.com/wenatcheeworld). We regularly highlight projects and photos associated with news and feature stories, holidays and special events. And some of The World’s pinned projects actually look doable. Like the stenciled pillow cover. And the burlap bunny table runner with those cute little cotton balls as bunny tails.
Right now on Pinterest, we have updated home and garden and do-it-yourself project boards in connection with The World’s special Home and Garden publication that will be inserted into this Sunday’s paper. Make sure to look in the Home and Garden section for photos of some pretty inventive projects that World readers have undertaken to spruce up their homes and yards this spring.
Are you producing pin-worthy craft projects and pastries during your spring break? Or are you forgoing decoupage for travel or a local outdoor adventure? We would love to see photos of your vacation activities. Share spring break photos with The World on our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Google+ pages and throw on The World’s hashtag: #wenworld. That way we can compile reader submissions into one spring break gallery on The World’s website. You can also upload your photos directly to The World’s website, wenatcheeworld.com/photos/galleries/submitted/ — click on “Share your photos.”
While you are on the website, checking out the amazing things your friends and neighbors are up to this spring, you will see that we have added digital copies of some of The World’s most popular products to the site, including PDFs of the Home and Garden section (online Monday), Foothills Magazine, the NCW Medical Directory and the annual Visitor Guide, which just came out in print this week.
And in case you missed the World’s Best contest section in the paper last Sunday, you can find all the results on the website. We did away with paper ballots for the contest this year, conducted all voting online, and the new system seemed to work well.
