Pinterest - My New Obsession

Pinterest pronounced "interest" + a "P", but pronounced "pin-interest" in my head is a virtual pinboard and it's so easy and so fun to use!

Here are some of my boards.  Click to enlarge.

Basically, you set up an account, download a little button to your browser window and then anything you come across on the interwebz that strikes your fancy whether it be a recipe, how-to tutorial, decor inspiration, an outfit, WHATEVAH!  You click your "Pin It" button and then you put it in the correct category/board on your virtual pinboard account and voila!  You'll be able to recall that baby pronto when needed! 

It's kind of like an advanced form of "bookmarking" or "favoriting" or whatever you used to do. 

And everyone needs to play because you can follow people on Pinterest and they can follow you and then you can steal each others pins or like or comment on things one another have pinned and it's kind of like sharing clothes but so much better! 

But, when the people you follow aren't quite as obsessed as you and you've already browsed all their pins, re-pinned what you like, you can also browse the whole Pinterest sight to find things you like.

Seriously, I'm spending way too much time on it, but it's so much fun! 

Anyone on Pinterest?  I'd love to follow you!  Leave me a comment with your link! 

If you'd like to join, because like I said, everyone else needs to play too for maximum fun value, I can send you an invite (it's invite only, I'm just exclusive like that ;) ) so you can get addicted just like I am!  Just leave me your email address in the comments so I know where to send it. 

Disclaimer:  Although I can wish upon a star and hope, this post was nowhere near sponsored by Pinterest, I just love it and think you should too!
