Regarding Pinterest

Monday, March 18, 2013

So about Pinterest.  I was later than a lot of you to open an account, and even later to actually create my boards and start pinning.  Between blogging, facebook, work, family and everything else, I just didn't want to commit to another social networking platform.  I'm so glad I had a change of heart, because, good Lord,  I'm in awe over the number of fantastic images, ideas and recipes I'll never make to be pinned every day! 


Do you have the Pinterest app? It's the end of boredom as we know it. Carpool lines, waiting rooms, and sporting events will never be the same.


I'm fascinated by what the people I'm following are pinning, and I'm astounded by the number of incredible design images that are floating around out there.  A wealth of inspiration for the taking! 



And just a few weeks ago, someone I admire/idolize became a follower.



Meg Braff. Color me tickled. 

Are any of your idols your followers?

Make sure you stop by Wednesday.  I'll be revealing my family room makeover for the One Room Challenge!

It is wonderful for waiting. I pick up my son every day and have to wait in a long line of cars, and amuse myself with my Pin app! So looking forward to your big reveal on Wednesday, Kim! What great motivation to get a room done right?!

I absolutely love Pinterest! Of all the social media platforms, it's by far my favorite. The others can't touch it visually. Can't wait to see your room Wednesday!

Ruthie Sommers follows me.

I nearly pooped myself when that email hit my inbox.

Haha! Recipes you'll never make, cracked me up. When I first started pinning I pinned a million recipes. I have made four and only two were good.
You're following me right? There's my idol. :)

It's crazy, I know. I will also never do one tenth of what I pin, but I do go back to my boards and look at images quite a lot. I love my followers whomever they are.

You are too legit to quit! (I know you'll get that reference because we're about the same age.)

That's big news that Meg is following you. I better go make sure that I'm following ALL your boards. You know I love your style.

I didn't get it at first either, but it's so cool!

Kim, I am a sometimes pinterest gal!! I do not have the app ... maybe I should get it. When I do go on, I absolutely love it and get lost in the images. Meg Braff ... wohoo!! Linda @ Calling It Home follows me. She's my idol! xo

I love it when I do check out Pintrest...just wish I had more time. Have to pin some of yours now.

I fought it, too, but when I finally gave in, I couldn't believe it, either. And I laughed about no more bored moments -- I am classic for pinning in the line at the grocery store. I squeeze it in when I can, because it is constant inspiration and motivates me in my work every day.

I am a HUGE Pinterest addict!! Pinterest is actually what inspired me to start my blog! As we are in the midst of a complete home renovation, I use it as a tool to gather ideas, and I frequently refer back to my boards for inspiration. You are correct when you say Pinterest is the end of boredom as we know it… I log in while waiting for girlfriends at lunch, at the doctor’s office, heck – even when stuck at red lights! It is instant eye candy! And I too follow Meg Braff… I love, love, LOVE her!!!

XOXO,
