It’s come to my attention lately that some things on Pinterest are getting out of control. I understand that there are trends. Some things become popular and you just can’t get enough of it. Many things become popular because they really are that awesome. Many times things become popular and then just go bad.
2. Chevron. Chevron is all up on everything on Pinterest. Now, I really do like chevron, but Pinterest is trying really hard to make me hate it. It’s everywhere. EVERYWHERE. It’s on Pinterest, in the stores, it somehow made it onto your purses, scarves, and shirts. It’s like chicken pox. Just look at all the things that show up when you search chevron on Pinterest.
3. Mason jars. I also love mason jars. They are so useful. But there are not meant to be used for a million different crafts. Please stop using them at your weddings. They are pretty and practical but not meant for every craft imaginable. I saw a craft for mason jar spiders. Really? Then I saw a pumpkin made out of mason jar lids. THEN I saw a mason jar lid banner. Yes. Do not waste your mason jars please.
4. Burlap. One day somewhere a person thought long and hard about what went well with mason jars, and burlap is what they came up with. Thus began the never ending trend of burlap.
5. Monograms. I’m not sure anything exists that can’t be monogrammed, but if there is, the person who’s going to discover it is a white girl from the south. I admit it, monograms are cute. But it’s gotten to a point where you’d think a homegirl can’t determine if something belongs to her unless it has her initials on it. The only positive thing about the monogram obsession is majority of those guilty know they have an obsession. Admitting you have a problem is the first step, right? So I guess it’s not too bad.
If you haven’t noticed yet, but somehow all those trends blend into each other. I mean, just scroll up, there’s monogrammed chevron and chevron pumpkins. WTF people? I’m convinced one of them is Voldemort and the rest are its horcrux’s.
Again, I’d like to say there really isn’t anything wrong with the things on my list. However, less is more. Just because it’s popular doesn’t mean every blogger needs to come up with some new way to use it. Also, just for funsies I searched chevron monogram burlap mason jar on Pinterest and items showed up. I can sadly say the same for when I searched chevron monogram burlap pumpkin. May Dumbledore be with us all.
