Pinterest is a virtual pin board - you create your own pin boards, browse through things others have pinned and add your favorites to your own boards, or pin up anything you find that you love from blogs or anywhere on the Internet!
For example, the bracelets below are one of the things I came across that I totally adore. I added these to my Personal Style board...
I had seen Pinterest around quite a bit on blogs lately, I was very pinterested ::hehe:: My friend Cindy finally inspired me to go check it out after sharing some wonderful things on her blog Gemini Wilder from her finds there. Now I'm hooked. I really, really love it. I need an intervention - or maybe we should call it a pintervention ;-)
It can definitely be very addicting and yet another way to procrastinate and waste time on the computer - I say after creating 18 boards and over 450 pins already. At the same time, it's a great way to find out who you really are. After looking at the boards I've created I actually said to myself "So that's who I am!" It's so much fun and so liberating!
I guess the cool thing is that's it's a place to put together our own wants, likes, needs, styles, and loves all in one place without considering others opinions. Of course we can create special boards for things for our loved ones too if we want to. The individual boards we create are only limited by our own imaginations.
Pinterest has been really helpful for my upcoming redecorating too. I have so many different likes and styles that I didn't know which direction to go. My thoughts on things were all just all over the place and mashing together. Pinterest really helped me to separate and organize the chaos, and given me some really great ideas.
If you're pinterested (oh my I must stop with the pinterest humor!) stop by my boards using the button below and then just click on each board to see details...
If you want to start pinning too just let me know and I'll send you an invitation (pinvitation, lol), otherwise you have to sign up and wait for an invite. Hope you'll come over and join me in my latest addiction :-)
