Start Pinning – Pinterest Addiction Explained

Are you on Pinterest yet?

I got an invitation to join Pinterest a few months back but never activated my account because I was too busy with other projects.  Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed more and more of my friends (mostly my bloggy friends) have been ‘pinning’ cool photos on their Facebook walls.  I downloaded the app on my iPad so I could play with it a little more.  Then I realized I needed another invitation to join in order to actually repin my favorites.  I finally broke down and begged Jill with Baby Rabies to send me an invite.

You will never see me again!  I think I may just spend all night on Pinterest instead of blogging!

Don’t worry – I exaggerate a LOT!  In all honesty though I can see how Pinterest could suck all of my free time right up though.  Hopefully my husband won’t get tired of me saying “Ohhh, honey look at this one!”  I have a boards for:

  • DIY I Love
  • Dream Room Ideas – Girls
  • Dream Room Ideas – Boys

And I think I need to add an Upcycled Crafts board badly! I have a very creative spirit and miss my crafting.  I started out college as an art major many moons ago before I decided to major in Biology (that’s what my degree is in).  I love to paint but I don’t have the room to pull out all my supplies (which are probably all dried up by now) so crafting is the closest I can get to my creative expression.  My latest passion has been sewing projects and home decor – or a combination of the two.  However I spend more time dreaming about it than I spend actually creating!

I’ve been planning some home decor projects in my head for months and it’s time for me to actually DO them!  I’m ready!  I NEED to create! Pinterest is giving me a very serious itch to log off my computer and actually follow through with some of these ideas.  Today after I picked up the boy from school we made a trip to JoAnn’s  so I could get a few supplies for my first project.  Here is a sneak peak at a pin-spiration (inspiring pin).  You’ll just have to wait a few days for me to actually complete the project before I share my creativity with you all!


Do you pin?  What’s your favorite board about?  Crafting, Home Decor, Food, Kids, Cloth Diapers???
