I have an Addiction…


Seriously, I have been doing this for quite a few months now and I am truly addicted.
But I LOVE IT! lol

Do you know what Pinterest is?

If not, let me explain it to you.

This is the most awesome website where you can “Pin” anything you see on the web to save it on one of your boards to come back later.
You can make your boards anything you want. I have MANY! One just for crafts, one for decorating ideas, one for holiday ideas, recipes, and the list goes on.

Let me show you a few things about Pinterest.

This is the main page of Pinterest.
It shows the Pins of the people that I follow.
You can even “Repin” anything you see that is currently on Pinterest and save it to one of your boards.

This is my profile on Pinterest with a view of a few of my boards.
I currently have 22 boards with 1870 pins with MANY MORE to come!
Told you I have an addiction!

This is just a quick shot of my “Crafts and DIY” board.

So, do you want to know how to do it?
It is SO EASY!!

You find something that you like on a blog or store website, anywhere on the web, that you would like to save and remember.
When you join Pinterest, you add a “Pin it” button in your toolbar so when you find that item you want to save, you just Click “Pin it.”

A new window will pop up with all the images from that webpage.
Select the image that you want to save and show on your board.

Then, a whole new window will open up with the image on the right and a drop down menu and description box on your right.
Choose which board you want to save that image to from the drop down menu and write a brief description in the box. You can write the price, where you found it, what you like about it, WHATEVER!
Then click “Pin it.”

And then it will let you know that it was successfully saved.
You can then view your pin, tweet your pin, or share it on Facebook.

How easy is that?!
And you can organize your boards any way you like!
I am constantly shuffling things around, making new boards, and changing names of boards. It’s a never ending process.

It is just so fabulous to keep such wonderful ideas all in one place so I know where they all are and I can check them out any time I want.

If you want to check out my boards, just click on the “P” icon in my social media buttons in the top right corner.

And let me know if you are on Pinterest!
I’d LOVE to check out your boards.
And if you aren’t… WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!

    This sounds like a wonderful way to keep up with all the things I find interesting and later forget where I found it!
