I print out my partner's questionnaire and highlight what stands out to me, like if it says I hate spiders or I love miniatures. I start making a list of what interests me and is within my capabilities. That list evolves over time until I get it down to 13 ideas. This really helps me with a craft store shopping list which I really need because the closest one is over an hour away. As I finish a project I mark it off. My final list puts the items in the order I'd like them opened. I love your idea of a secret Pinterest board!
