Do You Pinterest?

Do you Pinterest?  What is that, you ask?  Do you pin?  Pinterest is my favorite way to visually keep inspiring ideas that I find on the web.  The web is loaded with inspiration.  It can be hard to keep track of ideas.  I used to keep the website in my favorites, but my favorites got out of control.  I would forget what it was I wanted to remember from a particular blog or website.  This is where Pinterest comes in.

Now when I see something I want to remember, I can pin the picture using a bookmarklet I have installed on my toolbar.  Simple and easy.  Now I can find my ideas easily.

The other benefit of Pinterest is that you can follow other pinners.  You can follow all or some of their boards enabling you to see other interesting things out in blogland or the web. 

Check out my Pinterest by clicking here.  Don’t forget to follow any boards you might like.

Here are a few of my recent pins.  Be sure to click on the photos to find the links to the pins and then the original posts.

Scrapbook Inspiration

If you are already pinning you might want to join the Pinterest Master List Party at The Scrap Shop Blog.  They have created an ongoing list of crafty pinners.  You can add your pinterest or you can click on others for crafty inspiration.  I am on their list.

If you aren’t pinning, what are you waiting for.  If you need an invite, let me know.  I will be happy to send you an invite. You will be happy to have a place to keep all the blog inspiration you come across.  But fair warning, it can be a time drain.  A timer might be a great idea to set before you start or you will find yourself several hours into looking through other pins.
