Pinterest Obsession....

I’ve discovered two new things lately.

1. A new (reaffirmed) love for writing with Ultra Fine Tip Sharpies.

2. Pinterest (thanks to Brooke for the invite).

How does it work?
You get a little button on your favorites bar (much like the CraigsEasy button, if you did that) and then you can *pin* images and place them onto different boards in your collection. Its super easy.

Why is pinterest so great?
It just is.
  • I don’t have to save images on my computer anymore, freeing up precious hard drive space – (and you don’t have to worry about a crash).
  • I can save images anywhere (home or work) and they all go to the same place.
  • It keeps the source of the image. So if I’m posting an image of a DIY project into my ‘Thing to Make’ board, I can always click on the image when I actually get around to wanting to make said item and get the directions. No more bookmarking tutorials. I would also think this would make a great cookbook…..I may need to start a food board.
  • You can share with other people and other people can see your collections. I signed up using my twitter account so I’m automatically following the people I follow on twitter who also have a Pinterest account (and you don’t have to ask them to follow you, or request to be their friend or anything :)). You can also follow other people whose collections, or single boards, strike your fancy.

Basically it’s a visual reminder of a million things I like, in one place, that is easy to access and contribute to. It’s a virtual sketchbook and I’m obsessed.

I have 5 invites to give away – who wants one?


  1. Ooo, that sounds super cool. I'd like an invite please!

  2. I keep reading about how awesome this is... can I have one?

  3. Hi! I started following your blog after seeing your beautiful wedding photos by Meredith. I'd love an invite if you still have some left!

  4. So glad you're loving Pinterest! I'm totally hooked, too :)

  5. Dang... you probably gave them away already. I got on the "waiting list" yesterday because I didn't have an invite from a member.

  6. Thanks for sharing! Love the idea of saving everything you want from online! Also, I love pens too. I wish I had more reason actually write things down.

  7. if someone who got one of the invites and wants to share one of their invites that would be fabulous.

    C- I use Evernote for recipes (search able and I can bring it up on my iPad in the kitchen :-) You can have an iPad even if you are not a Mac girl.

  8. Sounds amazing - my hard drive is choking on my inspiration!

  9. I'd love an invite... any other way for people to get one?

  10. @ Tara - I think you can request one directly from their site. Or, ask someone above who got one, they should receive 5 invites to give away as well :)
