Do you Suffer From Pinterest Stress?

Wait, what?  Pinterest stress?  Is this a new thing?  Apparently you can suffer from Pinterest stress.  So are you ready to find out what it is?


TODAY did a survey about Pinterest:

In our exclusive TODAY Moms survey of 7,000 U.S. mothers, 42 percent said that they sometimes suffer from Pinterest stress – the worry that they’re not crafty or creative enough. Symptoms include staying up until 3 a.m. clicking through photos of exquisite hand-made birthday party favors even though you’ll end up buying yours at the dollar store, or sobbing quietly into a burnt mess of expensive ingredients that were supposed to be adorable bunny cookies for the school bake sale.


I would say I’m not a Pinterest stresser.  I’m pretty sure I have it in my head that the people who come up with these ideas for crafts, parties, outrageous recipes, are professionals or people with A LOT of time on their hand.

I love using Pinterest for ideas and if they fail, they fail.  I have found some awesome recipes.

I have tried most and haven’t really failed on anything.  No they are not pretty like the picture but that’s OK.

I have tried cleaners, laundry detergent and a Valentine card and they have all worked.

Seriously, you should see my carpet.  I have 3 super clean spots.  It’s kind crazy.

So, I know I don’t suffer from Pinterest Stress, I suffer from spending too much time on it, but that’s about it.

When you play on Pinterest does it make you feel inadequate as a parent?

Here’s a great site for a good laugh to let you know you are not alone, Pinterest Fails.
