My New Addiction

I’m a hoarder of pretty pictures. Pictures of what I want my house to look like. Pictures of cute little knick-knacks. Pictures of clothes. Pictures of anything really as long as it’s pretty.  Here’s just one of my binders full of magazine clippings.

And I won’t even get into how many folders I have full of images on my computer.  It’s out of control guys.  And you know the worst of it?  Do I ever go back and look at any of it?  Nope.  I just throw it in a folder all messy and unorganized and forget about it.

And then I discovered Pinterst.  Who ever came up with this idea is a genius!!!  I’m sure that most of you have at least heard of it by now, but not let me show you.

See all those little boards?  They’re my inspiration boards and I love them!  Every time I see a picture of something that I love I just have to click “pin it” on my tool bar and I can stick that picture to any of my boards I want.  And guess what?  I actually do go back and look through them and use them for inspiration!  They don’t get forgotten.  And the best part? I can go look at other peoples inspiration boards and pin from them too!

There are still a few things that I haven’t gotten the hang of yet but it is so much fun!

You can follow my pins here.  And if you’d like a little help getting started Beth at The Stories of A to Z has a great video tutorial.

    I LOVE that you posted this because it is our newest obsession! Emily may get fired because she is addicted! Such a great inspirational tool for craft brains :)

    I am totally with you on this one. The amount of images I download off the internet to add to my ‘ideas and inspirations’ folder is ridiculous.

    And maybe I shouldn’t mention that I once used an entire cartridge of ink printing all of it off (my husband has yet to buy me a new ink cartridge and that was probably a year ago).

    When I found Pinterest it was like finding out that heaven had been hiding in WWW world all this time. Here’s my link—http://pinterest.com/cannwin/
