Can I Pique Your Pinterest?




Have you joined Pinterest yet?  I had been hearing about it for awhile on Twitter and have been reading about it on my favorite blogs, however, I held off joining simply because I heard it's addicting!!!  The last thing I needed was something else to manipulate my precious free time on the Internet, however, it is actually quite a handy tool and does keep all of those pretty pictures floating around in your bookmarks organized!!! 

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. Peope use pin boards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.

Best of all, you can browse pin boards created by other people.   Once I signed up I immediately started following all of my favorite Home Decor and Craft bloggers.   Browsing pin boards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.



I have been personally using it to clear out all of my endless bookmarks and written down paint color lists.  It organizes it all in one pretty place! 



Another great thing about Pinterest?  It has an iPhone App.  Yep!  So I can view all of the pretty Pinterest eye candy from the convenience of my iPhone. 

It does take a few days to get started once you have submitted an application on their website.  If you would like a personal invitation from me, I would be happy to send you one.  An invitation from a member helps you get you pinning sooner!!

If you would like to follow me, I would love to have you!  Please click here to follow my profile or simply click the Pinterest Icon located on my side bar.

Happy pinning!

**Don't forget to enter my $25 Target Gift Card Giveaway!!! It's easy to win and only takes a few minutes to enter. It is my understanding that Blogger.com is still having issues with readers leaving comments on blogs. It has been recommended to unclick the 'Stay Signed In' Box when you are prompted to log in. This should hopefully help, I know it worked for me. Please email me if you have any questions or continue to have difficulty leaving Blog comments**

  1. Ahem, don't get me started. I knew it was going to be dangerous when I saw the iPhone app was coming out! I will tell you, I was so addicted to WEHEARTIT but was shying away b/c while it had some awesome images, it was starting to get some trashy images. Obviously, you can put ANYTHING on there :p (beware what you search, haha!)
