I pin, therefore I am.


Friend, I have to admit something: I have a pinning problem.  It started out innocently enough, a few months ago, and has escalated to a full-blown addiction.  I managed to break a new and expensive SD memory card for my camera recently.  This has seriously hampered my ability to work on and photograph blog projects for the past few days. So I've had to channel my creative energy elsewhere.  That elsewhere is Pinterest.com. Have you heard of it? Pinterest is a fabulous free website that allows you to organize and share all of the great things you find online.

When you find an inspiring photo, project, book, hairstyle, recipe-whatever- on the web you "pin it" to your virtual cork board, add a note to the pin so you can remember why in the world you pinned it and then organize it among your boards on your Pinterest page.  Bookmarking is so five minutes ago ;) and pinning is much more intuitive and user-friendly. It's such a great source for inspiration and such a nifty way to neatly organize all of your favorites.

Do you pin?  You can see what I've been pinning here. If you are not yet a pinning aficionado and you would like to try, I'm happy to send you an invitation to get you started.  Simply contact me and leave me your name and email address.


 I whipped up these little odes to Pinterest for those who share this addiction hobby.
