Pinterest, our new obsession!

July 27, 2011

Do you print pictures from blogs or websites and slip them in a binder? Do you find yourself bookmarking hundreds of websites for one or two images that inspire you? Or do you have folders upon folders in your Documents of carefully categorized, saved images from the web? Well say goodbye to your old methods, and ask for an invite to Pinterest! An online bulletin board, inspiration board, dream board, whatever you want to call it, Pinterest allows you to collect all the cool things you find online easily and neatly in one place.

You can create multiple boards to categorize your many finds. For example, you could make a board for your upcoming birthday party, title it My Awesome Party, and start pinning all the inspiration you can find online. How does one ‘pin’ exactly? When you sign up, you download a “Pinterest’ button for your toolbar. Then when you come across the most amazing pinata that you absolutely must have for your awesome party, you click on the Pinterest button and a dialogue box pops up, asking which board you would like to pin the pinata to. You are then asked to add a caption. Once pinned, other people can view your pins and add to their many boards. Kind of like a creative Facebook, where instead of your status being “Excited for my birthday”, you pin a picture of the margarita recipe you’re going to make, and caption it “Can’t wait to drink a pitcher of these.”

Here’s just a sampling of some things we have pinned.

We’ll warn you, once you start, you won’t be able to stop.
