Pinterest: I don't even know how to pronounce it...

...but I already like it.

I struggle with deciding what technology fads I want to join. They always sound super rad, but I don't want to bog myself down or overwhelm myself. Two things I have been considering the past few months are pinterest and twitter. I have decided today to try pinterest. I think I am going to like. Anyone creative, any wanna be creative, or anyone that likes look at creative things, will like this.

How it works:
1. find images online.
2. click on your "pin it" bookmark
3. choose what inspirational board you want to pin it on
4. add a description
5. go to and you've got your self some inspiration.

Not sold yet?

You have to be "invited" to join, and I am not sure how that works. But you can request to be invited. Its worth it. I don't have to save all of the images to my computer wasting precious space. I can add it from any computer online. You can have different boards for different categories. And you just create your own categories.

So far I have:
Organize it!
Future Room Ideas
Future DIY craftiness
Art Teacher Ideas
Sewing things
Its a hair thing
Baked Deliciousness

Oh, it is free.

Once you save your image it saves the link of where its originally from so if you need directions on how to make or cook something or buy something- its RIGHT there! Ah-mazing stuff. Why didn't I think of it?

How about now?

Oh and just like blogging you can follow other people, and it connects to facebook and twitter (still don't have) and you get to see what they have posted.

If you want an invite to pinterest leave me your email address and I will invite you!

Know how to pronounce it? Let me know!
