In LOVE with Pinterest!

My dear friend and neighbor, April recently introduced me to Pinterest and I just gotta say, it was love at first sight!  What is Pinterest you ask?  Pinterest is like a virtual pinboard - a place where you can create folders and collect things you love and share them with others.  It also lets you "follow" collections that other people have created!  It's seriously addicting!  

We've had several DIY home renovations in the works and having access to this kind of filing system has helped tremendously!  I love being able to gather inspiration from ANYWHERE on the "www" and follow other people that have a common taste.  They even have a "pin it" button that aides in letting you bookmark anything you see and add it to your created folders.

Sorting and cutting out pictures from magazines has been drastically reduced and I'm definitely all about less paper around here!  :)  Just look at some of the great finds I've been able to add to my pinboard...

We hope to create something similar to this in our kitchen!

So, if you have a Pinterest account, I encourage you to add a "Follow me on Pinterest" button to your sidebar so you can share what inspires you with others!  If you don't, you can register by going to www.pinterest.com.  They will send you an email thanking you for joining the pinterest waiting list.  Then, about a week later, you will receive an invitation to join Pinterest.

I hope that you find Pinterest to be just as helpful!  Oh, and by the way, I'm not getting paid to write this, I'm just super excited and HAD to share my newest discovery with you!
Happy pinning!  :)

Hi Alicia,

I had never heard of Pinterest before until I read your post. How very interesting! I also like your previous post - beautiful white candleholders and accessories.
