Pinterest, a world of awesomeness

7 Apr

Do you know about Pinterest?

Oh, you didn’t?  Well, you’re welcome.  I’ve just introduced you to the most incredible inspiration board/bookmarking site ever created.  And I’m sorry, because you will lose hours browsing the amazingness.

I’ve never found a great way to keep track of all the projects I want to work on.  I’d bookmark them, save copies of the pictures to my hard drive (never to be seen again), or just file them away in the great filing cabinet in my mind (also never to be seen again).  Until now.

Pinterest lets you create different “boards” for different types of things.  You can have a DIY projects board, a sewing projects board, a books to read board, and on and on and on.  And as you browse around the internets or read your blogs in your reader, you can “pin” things to your board.  And the best part is that it saves an image of whatever you’re looking at, along with a LINK back to the original post!  Never again will I look at a random DIY project picture on my computer and think “hey, that’s cool.  i wonder how they did it” and then spend hours trying to find it again.  Now I just have to check out my pinterest boards and there it is, complete with link back to the instructions!  Wooohooo!

Just a few of the fun projects I want to try to do soon!

    What a great idea! So much more organized than the email list of links currently in my gmail draft folder!

    I finally got my invite this week. I LOVE the fact that it uses pictures. I can easily remember why I bookmarked something! 🙂

      I love it too! So fun to see what other people find to work on and what inspires them! – and I’ve been loving your pins… I look at them every day. 🙂
