Fall Bucket List, 2012

UPDATED 2013 BUCKET LIST HERE

It's no real secret that my Fall Bucket List printable from last year blew up all over Pinterest. When I made it, I had no intention of that ever happening. In fact, I made it for my little family and decided to share it in case a few of my readers or friends wanted to print one, too.


Then it turns out, a lot of people used it. Which is awesome.

I saw that it's back floating on boards again because 'tis the season---but...it says TWO THOUSAND AND ELEVEN.

So I fixed it up a little, changing the year, and I also added my web address. Last year, I saw a little ugly side to the internet when I found multiple blogs claiming this was their own. Not gonna lie, seeing that sucks a little. But not only that, without the proper source, PEOPLE COULDN'T EVEN PRINT THE PRINTABLE! duh. Hence the entire purpose.

It was my own fault for not watermarking it last year, but again--I had zero intention that it would really get out there. And, well, lesson learned.

Watermark your 'ish people. Oh, and cite properly if you're out there pinterest'ing. It's just the right thing to do.

Note: this is NOT the printable

So, if you'd like an updated one for your home this year---feel free to get the printable here. Click to magnify and print as an 8x10 (with a bit of trimming), or keep smaller for a 5x7. Put it behind a glass frame and you can check off your bucket list with a dry erase marker! Fun fun fun.

****

One more time, HERE IS THE PRINTABLE.

Just to be clear. Ahem.

Happy (almost) Fall! (how did that happen?!)

  2. This was your little creation?! I loved that! I'm going to print it again this year as well. You are SO creative and I'm so glad I know who made it now.

  3. This is so cute. It seems like its most appropriate for families with little kids... but is it wrong that I, as a childless married lady, want to partake in all the suggested activities?

  4. FYI, I'm still doing damage control for you. lol. Every time one of my pinterest friends pins it, I check the source and correct it if it's wrong. :)
    Yay for the 2012 one! I loved checking things off of mine last year!

  6. That's so funny I just saw it on Pinterest the other day and was thinking it looked familiar... because I had downloaded it from you last year DUH. Thanks for the updated one can't wait to check these off this year :)

  8. I remember when you did this last year and it was floating around on Pinterest and half the time the link never cam back to you! I can imagine how annoying that would be. Silly people. I am looking forward to printing this and actually crossing activities off now that Ellie is old enough to enjoy more experiences. Thanks for sharing..again :)

  15. Love this, as always. And like always, I really WANT to do this. But, my fall bucket list looks a little like this:

    1-Clean like crazy.
    2-Lounge around and wait for baby.
    3-Drink apple cider.

  18. I didn't have a clue you made that- and I DID pin it! :) Loved it! You're so creative. Thanks for sharing it. Curious, what have your success rates been at completing your bucket lists each season?

    ReplyDelete
  19. How fun! And that is awful with all the Pinterest nonsense!

  22. Just printed this puppy out yesterday, but still have to frame it. Here's a winner of a question, do you actually check things off on it, or just mentally? Maybe I can just frame it without the glass to make it easier to check off? Yes, these thoughts are running through my head right now, and I don't have an excuse of being sleep deprived from a newborn. It's just me (I'm still tired, though. Two kids will leave you that way no matter what age. haha).

  23. Love this, I still have mine from last year but I totally didn't realize the year on it. Will be printing it out again this year. :)

  24. This is fabulous...thanks for updating it...and so sorry that you had to see that side of the 'net and Pinterest.

  25. Can I ask what program you used to create this? I'd like to do something similar, but I can't really find a program that'll work out cute like yours!

    ReplyDelete
  26. This is a fabulous list (as is the 2011 version which I just pinned from another site). As you are the actual creator of this, I'm about to re-pin it with your correct source (and I'll delete the incorrect one while I'm at it). Glad I was able to find you! I'd love for you to share your original at my fall-themed link-up:

  27. Such a fun bucket list. I saw the 2011 one pinned to the wrong site on Pinterest and your sister left me a comment letting me know the correct source. I'm sorry that happened to you. I pinned your new one and linked to you :)

  32. Oh man, I'm SO sorry that happened to you - sometimes I wonder how some people sleep at night!

    Your story is the perfect example why people should watermark....and don't get me started on proper pinning!! (*pulls hair*)

    Thanks for taking the time to update and make a new one!!
