Very Pinteresting


Dear Blogoshere,

I know. It’s Friday.  It’s my day to write something, but here’s the thing.  I am deeply entrenched in another site at the moment.  Every time I sit down at my computer to tap on the keyboard I decide I better just take a quick look at Pinterest first.  You know, just to see what’s new out there, (and there is always something new) and then before I know it the day has whipped past me faster than a bee stung stallion.

If you have explored Pinterest then your head is nodding in agreement.  You too are familiar with how you can plan to have a “quick” look and then all of a sudden your spouse is locking the front door, turning out all the lights and going to bed without you while you sit, twelve hours later, bleary eyed in front of your computer with your pyjamas still on and your hair un-brushed from the morning.  Where did the day go?  Looking on the bright side, at least you don’t have to get into your pyjamas and take your make up off.

If you haven’t experienced Pinterest yet then let me tell you what you are missing! I’m only letting you in on this site so you too will fall into the grip of its addiction you will want to join and thereby learn all of its wonders and even share your own ingenuity with others.  The more the merrier! Mua ha ha! (– that’s how I write an evil laugh if you were unsure)

So what is it?

No, but seriously, direct from the site itself:

Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard.

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favourite recipes. Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to (get distracted and lose multiple hours in a day) discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.

Who wouldn’t want to learn how to create a cool scarf out of a mans t-shirt (don’t laugh it’s your birthday and/or Christmas giftand you’re gonna love it!), discover different and interesting ways to arrange family photos on a wall, create beautiful center pieces with dollar store items, peruse photos of really amazing homes to steal decorating ideas from, find a humorous picture that you know all of your Facebook friends will want you to share (except you rarely visit Facebook anymore), be inspired by some very fit folks, learn amazing and simple new recipes and find clever Halloween costume ideas?  I haven’t even touched on fashion and beauty tips, or art, or books or design, music and gardening. Aaargh! There are so many categories to explore and boards to examine! I don’t have time for this blogging thing at the moment.  I’m sorry but I really have to go. By all means, come and join me on the other side site if you’d like.  Follow my pins and I’ll follow yours and we’ll all be the better for it.  Heh, heh, heh (that’s how I write crazy person laugh)

I may, or may not, be back next week.  “What’s that John? You want me to make you dinner, not just repin it?…”
