Before Thanksgiving, the word Pinterest was foreign to me. I felt so out of the loop when my sister said to me “Do you Pinterest?” I was like, “do I do what?” She sat looking at her phone for quite a while when my Aunt and Cousin joined the conversation. Quickly I heard, laughing and ooh’s and ahhhs. I did not want to even get started on something new. They were all talking about how addicting it is and how they have a hard time putting it down. So, after my ban against checking it out I saw other people posting on Facebook that Pinterest had them sucked in. Needless to say, I asked for an invite and was quickly aware of what all the chatter was about. If I can sum up Pinterest for you, it is a collection of images that can vary from everything you can think of including crafts, recipes, makeup, household goods, pretty pictures, cute animals and babies, random ideas, humor, sexy men and woman <– nothing explicit… anything and everything on the web can be pinned and repinned. When you pin something the people following you can see what you thought was interesting. You can make categories called Boards and name them whatever you want and pin anything you want on them.
Great thing is, by pinning it I can easily find it and recreate it myself!
