So many of my friends and people that I follow on other blogs are on Pinterest. I have purposely avoided checking it out. I knew it would be a time sucker. I know my weakness for gathering ideas and gathering ideas and gathering ideas. On one hand, it's exciting to be inspired, but I often actually get depressed. I come to a point of realization that after many hours of internet browsing, I could have gotten so much done!
In the last few weeks, a few very close friends have told me how much they love Pinterest and one actually took me to her boards. Needless to say, I got really excited.
As I was logging in to my new account I made a vow that I shall NOT waste time on Pinterest. It will be a "reward." AND... and... I will put into action the ideas that I find there.
So, these are the first two things that I have done that were inspired from Pinterest.
Pinterest came in very handy when I was trying to come up with a unique wedding shower gift for a friend. I stalked her pinterest boards and saw what kinds of things she liked. How cool is that? She had a couple pictures of initials on there. One was made of buttons and one of vintage jewelry. This is my spin.
I have a wreath like this on my boards. It had rhinestones instead of pearls and a feather flower. I wanted something wintery so, I crocheted the snowflake. I like that it can stay up all winter, not just for Christmas. In fact, I might add some hearts around Valentine's day.
So, if you haven't been on Pinterest yet, I recommend it. It really is quite nice to have all these ideas in ONE spot. Plus, the categories make it all very organized. Just be warned, it can suck your time so, take the vow.
