PINTEREST!! ! Do you Pin?

SO MANY people are using  “Pinterest” these days.  If you have not yet heard this term, you will.  If you do not “pin”, here’s a little info from the pinterest website that might enlighten you.  I was very slow at figuring this out, but I kept playing with it and now thoroughly enjoy it.  The home dec, do it yourself, photo, exercise and recipe ideas have been amazing!  It is fun seeing the ideas of others from all over the world. You can follow your friends ideas and also strangers; you can leave comments.  If you are reading an online article and see a great recipe, don’t print it out, PIN IT, right then!  Even better is that you can pin (save) any of these ideas with the click of a button and it is not saved to your computer hard drive.  Read on to learn more…..

What is Pinterest?

Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard.

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.

Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. To get started, you can request an invite from or ask a pinterest user to send you one. (ask me, I’ll invite you!)

What Can You Do with Pinterest?

These are Pinterest Boards:

Redecorate your Home!

Save Your Recipes!

Save your Inspirations!

Our Mission (from Pinterest)

Our goal is to connect everyone in the world through the ‘things’ they find interesting. We think that a favorite book, toy, or recipe can reveal a common link between two people. With millions of new pins added every week, Pinterest is connecting people all over the world based on shared tastes and interests.

  1. I love Pinterest…especially for recipes. I also get great ideas for outfits to wear.

  2. My wife LOVES Pinterest and is waiting anxiously for an invite. Both of us are, if anyone had one to share for her…? I will send her your blog. Can you share an invite or two?

    I LOVE Pinterest too. My main focus is (of course) food and I’ve gleaned some wonderful recipes from there. Our daughter has pinned several great ideas for kids’ crafts and has completed some DIY projects for their new home in Ohio. It’s great to see (and steal) the ideas that friends and family pin as well. It can be time consuming, to say the least, but there is definitely a reward in the end. Great addition to the world wide web!

    I love Pinterest! I’m pretty new to it, but am enjoying connecting with others and especially love crafts, recipes and home decorating ideas! Actually, it has been one more way of getting to know distant cousins I have never met. It’s amazing how many things we have in common:)

  5. That is awesome, Jeannette. I can see a “pin” now and know who it belongs to before I even see the name. It really does make us know each other better.

    Oh fun! Invite me, please! 🙂

  7. Oh Yipeee….I am now a member of Pinterest. I have been on their site many, many times and didn’t know I should join until you talked about it. I can see hours and days could go by while gazing at all the beautiful, useful, crafty, good recipe things that are on there. Fun, Fun! Especially since I’m still trying to get rid of my awful bug. Thanks for the encouragement to venture forth.
