.I Pin!.

I've recently become hooked on Pinterest.  A fantastic new website that is like a virtual pinboard.  I love it for visually displaying the hundreds of pages and images I had bookmarked in my bookmarks folder.  Bookmarks aren't handy.  I had so many things bookmarked and knew that in reality I would very rarely visit them again because of the effort it takes to open each one and remember why they were bookmarked.
Solution = Pinterest!
This place is great and has been taking up a bit of my time lately.  I'm happy to say that my bookmarks folder is cleared out and I'm loving the beautiful visual display of prettiness I can see everytime I visit my pinboards.  Also lots of fun is checking out other people's pinboards and adding some of their favourites to mine!
All of your images are easily organised into groupings...check out some of my pinboards for some inspiration!

Oh wow this is soo cool! I'd seen this website before, but I wasn't really sure what it was about and such, but thanks for showing me! :-) This, plus www.stumbleupon.com would be such a great combination!! :-)

Love,

I just went in to have a look and got lost for 40 minutes. Must dash and get daughter in the bath now. This could be dangerous. Thank you for the introduction.
Have a lovely week.

Hi Toni! I'm thrilled to find your blog. We're both finalists in the Handmade Olympics and it looks like you'll win - yay! I just joined Pinterest and am hesitant to dive in because I know I'm going to spend SO MUCH TIME there! :) Have an amazing day!

Anna said...

I just started trying to pin this past week or so. I love it and acan't agree more with you that it's the best way to find all the stuff you love and keep it in one place. :)

Do you know how long it takes to get on pinterest- or whether it's quicker to get an invite from someone already on?!?! I requested an invite two weeks ago, and got an auto reply saying i was on a waiting list, but haven't heard anything since... And, do you have to be on facebook to use pinterest?
Thanks!
