How I spend my free time : Pinterest . . . . Works for Me Wednesday

Have you heard of Pinterest?

Pinterest is the greatest thing since, well, twitter.

Here's the deal....Pinterest is an online bulletin board.  Instead of ripping pictures out of magazine, you "pin" them and Pinterest automatically saves the link, so you can go back to the original post.

And you aren't just limited to one board...you can have all kinds of boards!!! (These are mine.)

I've pinned oodles of goodies pinned on a board I call "Swooning Over Food" (shocker, I know).


But, "Yellow" is another one of my favorites.


My favorite part of Pinterest?  Seeing what other people are pinning.  You can find friends or follow people you don't know (that sounds like stalking, but I promise, it's ok).

Here are some I love....

"Color Inspiration" from Courtney of Poppy Pedals



"Travel" from Kristen of Dine & Dish 



"Cupcakes" from Laurel of Go Against the Grain



"Make me SMILE" from Teresa of Blooming on Bainbridge


Are you sold, yet?  Pinterest...it works for me & I'm lovin' it! :)

  6. I like it but haven't figured out how to pin from a site that I find w/out following someone else's pin. For example, if I went to your blog, how would I pin one of your tutorials? Thanks, Amy P.s I repinned some of your recipe pins. Love the PB torte :-)

  19. I've heard of Pinterest and how fun it is, but never ventured into actually going to see for myself. I hear it can be addicting and that's just what I need another site to get addicted to LOL! But I'm going to check it out!!

    Your boards are great, I love the yellow I guess board! I'm getting ready to re-carpet my house and re-do my living room/dining room and I've always loved the look of yellow, grey and white with maybe a splash of red (my favorite color)so this site might help with that. Now I'm off to check out this wonderful site, that is after I clear some work off my desk (work comes first)!!

  23. I use it as my virtual recipe box. I have a board for recipes I've tried and that worked out well, and then a bunch of different categories of recipes I want to try. Makes creating my weekly menu plan a little easier too!
