sharing from my heart to yours
It's the new thing!
(or maybe I'm just way behind.)
And SO fun!
And SO addicting!
And SO useful!
Introducing you to...PINTEREST!!!
Basically, it's a brilliant way to organize all your favorites; from recipes, to clothes, to websites, to photos.
Pretty much, you have 'bulletin boards' that you categorize, then you can 'pin' anything and everything onto any of your bulletin boards for future reference from any computer. The pin saves the website info from where the photo originally was found, so you can go back and visit that site just by clicking on that photo.
Pinning a photo is super simple.
Once you get a pinterest account, you drag the "Pin It" button (shown above) to your favorites toolbar. Every time you're on a site or see a photo you want to remember, just click that button. A chart of every picture on that page will appear and you just choose which board you'd like that photo to go on.
Check out the About Pinterest Page for more info
All boards are public (somewhat of a bummer, but I'm hoping there is the option of having private boards in the future, as they are still updating and changing the site). So another fun (and addicting) thing is to check out other people's boards (you can 'follow' each other) that have similar interests as yourself. For example: 'future home' is a popular category and oh so fun to browse!
I'm not even sure where I ran across this site, but I know others have blogged about it, so maybe that is where I got it.
I've gotten so many ideas and found so many neat things on Pinterest, and I love the organized way of keeping track of things online.
Here are a few things I have pinned lately...
Aren't they sweet!?! :) I'm sure Skyler would love to have these for breakfast some day!
This is one of my favorite desserts...layer upon layer of it!! I'm gonna have to try this recipe someday! Sooner than later I hope!
Talk about darling nursery idea! Especially for a smaller house that didn't have the extra room for the littlest little.
S'more Cookies!? Really! Yes!!
There are SO many crafty ideas and tutorials as well!
And organization!? Endless!
Dream home... I think YES!
Isn't it just fun!?
All of the photos above I "repinned' from others' boards, I didn't even have to go to oodles of different websites to get these neato ideas!
To join Pinterest, you must have an invitation from someone who already has an account. If you're wanting to join the excitement, send me an email and I'll return it with an invite! Then I'd love to see what kind of ideas you come up with on your boards!
WARNING: This site can take up more time than any other site there is! You know how on Facebook and one picture leads to the next comment which leads to...you know. And blogs... they just keep coming! This. Is. Worse.
I plan on sharing some of the neat things I pin on a regular basis in the future. Happy Pinning!
