I was introduced to Pinterest by my friend Caroline, and it's JUST the greatest thing ever. The description on the site sums it up pretty nicely:
"Think of Pinterest as a virtual pinboard — a place where you can create collections of things you love and "follow" collections created by people with great taste."Um, HELLO? This is truly the best thing I've ever heard. For years I've been bookmarking my favorite things - inspiration, dream house ideas, cute crafty project ideas - into little folders in my little bookmark tab in my little browser. My bookmarks have traveled with me through 3 different computers. It's serious.
Well I must not have been the only person who works this way, because someone created Pinterest, and I feel like it was created just for ME!
Now, instead of folders, I have Boards, and instead of bookmarks I have Pins! I see something I love on whatever site I'm on, I hit my "Pin It" button, and it gets added to my collection and shared with my friends. And it references the original sites you pin everything from, so it's the best kind of sharing.
My favorite part is getting to browse other people's boards. You can follow people you know, or people you don't know but who have a similar style as yours.
Doesn't it sound fun? Come play with me! My boards can be found at pinterest.com/thesassypickle. I add more to them everyday. Happy pinning!
