Pinning My Life Away

30 Sep

So by now most people out there in design blog land know what Pinterest is.  If not let me explain: Pinterest is a service that let’s you store (pin) images from any website onto digital boards on the Pinterest website.  It allows you to categorize the boards to your liking.  For instance a member can have a board just for Pink Rooms or for Places I Want To Travel.  Well I signed up, waited I don’t know how many countless days to be allowed in then finally got my oh so coveted approval.  And let me just tell you it is ingenious…..and maybe the most additive website ever for a design junky like myself!

Now in the morning instead of checking my email I hop right over to Pinterest to see what new goodies have been posted.  If I’m in the mood to look up interiors with lavender I can and dozens of images pop up.  Brilliant!  If something catches my eye I can “pin it” to any of my 25 boards.  Before to save anything I would have to click and save an image then take forever to find it again.  Now it is right in front of me neatly categorized.  Oh and if anyone repins or likes a picture from one of your boards they send you a lovely e-mail (You Have New Pins and Likes on Pinterest).  Getting an email just makes my day a little brighter somehow.  When I finally make it to my email.  Anyway if you are still with me, you can follow me on Pinterest here.  Here are some recent pins for your Friday night enjoyment below.
