Oh Pinterest, I love you

Ever heard of a website called Pinterest? If not, then you are about to discover one of the most wonderful and helpful things on the internet.

"Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests." 
(quoted from here)

And I'm telling you, it is so helpful to have pinboards! There are so many things that I find on the internet that I want to remember, or share with my friends. This is a great way to keep track of those random discoveries on the web like recipes, craft ideas, decorating tips, outfit inspirations and so many other things. Here's what my "pinboards" looks like, for example.

I have a profile, and I can create boxes (categories) for things I find. For example, something like this (a creative way to organize shoes) would be in "Dream home":
Or this (an amazing, delicious, dairy-free, healthy chocolate fudge pie from this blog) would be in "For chocolatey days":

One of the best parts about Pinterest though, is that you see all of the things that your friends pin on pinterest too. You can follow anyone's boards and see what they find on the internet....and that's how pins circle around on pinterest! You can "repin" anyone else's pin if you like it, so you remember it too. So you get some great ideas from people who's styles you like or who cook great food! 

So sign up for free! It's really a creative idea, and it's worth trying out. I love it, and hope you will to! 

Oh Pinterest, you make me happy!
