Have you all heard of Pinterest yet? There has been a lot of talk of it in the blog world and online, but a lot of people still have no idea what it is or what all the fuss is about. According to Pinterest’s website: “It is a virtual pinboard. Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes. Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.”
I personally use Pinterest to accumulate new recipes, to corral ideas for future kids, home decor ideas, organizing tips & even new ways to tie a scarf, plus many more thoughts and ideas for DIY projects and other things. I used to have 10 page word documents of recipes or DIY projects that I wanted to find time to do but they quickly become disorganized or forgotten. The fact that you can view each of your ideas divided by categories and then just by a picture is so appealing.
Below are just a few of the things I’ve pinned on my boards:
