I don’t know about you, but I could (and sometimes do) spend hours on Pinterest. It is full of cool stuff and amazing ideas. If there is something you want to know how to do or make, you can find it on Pinterest. It is probably safe to say that I have a slight obsession with it.

I have made everything from cupcakes to laundry soap and flubber to upcycled shirts. There is pretty much nothing that I won’t try to make that I find on Pinterest. It could be because everything that is posted on Pinterest sounds so easy to make. There are always such simple directions with just a few ingredients and viola, you have the perfect thing you wanted to make. Right. In a perfect world, maybe.


We all know this world isn’t perfect, and neither is about half the stuff I make from Pinterest. I was beginning to get discouraged, thinking I was the only one with this problem. That is until I found a website completely devoted to Pinterst fails. It’s called Pintrocity. It is hilarious. The first time I saw this site I laughed so hard that I cried. I’ve found it’s just as easy to spend as much time on this site as Pinterest. It shows you the perfect Pinterest picture first, and then it shows you the fail. It also tells you what went wrong and how to fix it.

If you’re feeling bad about your Pinterest skills or if you just feel like a good laugh then check out Pintrocity. You won’t be disappointed.
