Very Pinterest-ing.

I am guessing many (most?) of you have by now heard of, and now are using Pinterest. I myself am a little late coming to the party, but I am here now, baby.
My daughter (Carter and Coen's Mama) first told me about Pinterest a while back and I checked it out but I was too busy to really poke around too much. (...or maybe I was just not really "getting" it fully.) case you didn't know...

Pinterest is a Virtual Pin-board.

It lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pin-boards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes....the possibilities are endless! For..well, what seems like forever, I have been grabbing pictures online from my favorite blogs and websites and saving them in Word documents and such to find inspiration. Now, not only is that unnecessary, we can all gather our photos, organize them by topics we choose ourselves, and share them with ...everyone!

 I'm not at all sure how Pinterest began, or how they make money, but I am quite smitten with the entire concept, and I'm thrilled to be able to save (and share) so many cool pictures of inspiring things.
If you have a Pinterest Page of boards, I'd love to check them out, so let me know! 
If it's new to you, and for any reason you have trouble joining, send me an email and I can send you out an invitation. It takes a few hours or so before you get a reply, so be patient....the wait will be worth it!

  7. Oh my! I'd heard of Pinterest but, until I read your post and checked out your pins tonight, I had no idea what I was missing! I immediately requested an invite, was accepted, and am beginning to add pins. Looks like it's going to be a wonderful addiction!

  12. Tracey~ I am going to admit... pinterest, was very confusing to me. It still is!
    have a PRETTY day!

  13. Tracey: Just three days ago you mentioned Pinterest so I signed up and went to work adding pins. I love searching and finding things to "pin" and adding more Boards. You forgot to warn us it could be addicting! And, judging from the amount of pins you have too, we are both addicted - ha (I see we like many of the same types of things) . . . come visit me again at

  14. Hmm...not a very organized person, so I like to try things to make me a little better...cross your fingers for me Tracy!

    I cant believe I've never heard of it before!

  15. Hi Tracy, I will be checking out your boards on Pinterest. I'm surprised at the people who haven't found it. For all of you newbies to Pinterest, it is addicting !
    Come by and check out my boards
