{Trendy Tuesday} Oh! How Pinteresting!

Here's a little piece of internet heaven for your Trendy Tuesday morning.


It takes up most of my free time these days. ('Cause you know, I have sooooo much free time.)

Have you seen it?

According to the owner's description, Pinterest is "a virtual pinboard — a place where you can create collections of things you love and "follow" collections created by people with great taste. People use Pinterest to collect and share all sorts of things -- wedding inspiration, favorite T-shirts, DJ equipment. You name it, people are pinning it."

Essentially, It's like having a pinboard right in front of me without the need to - oh, you know - BUY A PINBOARD and pesky pushpins. It allows me to visually bookmark items I find online and catalog them in a way that's inspiring to me.

You can also "follow" other Pinterest users. Once you follow someone new, you can see their boards and pins - items they find interesting online. Each new and intriguing pin leads you to more beautiful discoveries. Just be warned...it's incredibly easy to get sucked in to this fascinating site (much like Alice and the rabbit hole, no?)

Seriously. I can't get enough. I feel so artistically inspired (or what I also call *artsy fartsy*) while I'm browsing around the site, pinning things left and right.

It. Is. Awesome. (Of course, I'm artsy fartsy like that.)

I have pinboards full of beautiful doilies, dreamy craft rooms, cute kid food, projects I want to make, items I want to buy, party ideas, felt-a-licious finds, etc. etc.

All my favorite things!

So now. Don't say I never gave you anything.

I just gave you a whole new online world to waste your day browsing around. (And, you're going to love it, by the way.)


To see my little world of Pinterests, just visit my boards or my pins.
