That's Pinteresting!

I have to share with you my new addiction.


Pinterest has been occupying a LOT of my time lately, and with good reason! There is SO much to see. Pinterest is like the cyber lovechild of Facebook, Tumblr and Wists. You can "pin" things from around the web that you love, and sort them into various categories (boards). You can comment on other people's pins, and even repin them to your own boards. You can choose to follow other users, or just particular boards of theirs. Social bookmarking! Yay!
I love it because it enables me to bookmark tutorials and ideas with PHOTOGRAPHS. I have a zillion bookmarks, but it is a pain to find the one I am looking for because it is all text, and I never bothered sorting them beyond basic category (ie: my "craft stuff" bookmark folder has about 1100 links)
Pinterest still seems to be in invite-only stage, but if you want to check it out (and I REALLY suggest you do), just leave a comment with you email addy and I will shoot you an invitation.

Here are a few items that I have pinned recently:


You can find these fabulous posts (and the source links!) on my Pinterest boards. I welcome you to follow some or all of my pins.

If you are already on Pinterest, feel free to share your link in the comments so that I can visit you and see what tickles your fancy!

hugs,

Hey Heidi,

Hopefully (for me) you are in the grip of insomnia and still awake. I am scrambling to finish a project for school and Pinterest would be a LIFESAVER.
