Do you Pin?

Well, I pin. A lot. And I love it!

Have you heard of

What is Pinterest?
"Think of Pinterest as a virtual pinboard — a place where you can create collections of things you love and "follow" collections created by people with great taste."

I find a million things online that I want to remember, do, revisit, try out. I've bookmarked some. I've jotted down others. Its just so hard to keep track of it all. I've often wished the internet was like magazines and I could just rip out the page to save it in my 'do later' binder.

Pinterest makes this happen. You sign up (right now its by invitation only). You drag a button to your tool bar. When you come across something online that catches your eye you click the "Pin It" button and pin it to one of any number of boards you've created.

Here are my boards:

I wish this had been around when I was wedding planning!  Its great for rounding up all those images and links for ideas if you're planning to redecorate, or want to gather all those great recipes in to one place.  I have a board of inspiration for the boys room, a board for fun stuff to do with the kids, I even have a board for a possible tattoo:
Yeah, that's a lot of bird tattoos... I have a thing about flying.  And Mom, don't worry, I've been *thinking* about a tattoo for over 20 years and still haven't made the plunge.

If you want to check it out you can go to and Request an Invitation or send me your email and I'll send you an invitation to join.

Warning: Pinterest can be pretty addictive and may cause a loss in productivity and/or sleep.
