Do you pin?

Maybe I am a little late to the game, but...
  do you pin?

You can find this photo pinned on my "Beautiful Fleurs" board...

For those of you who are like me and don't always keep up with the trendy stuff...
you might be thinking " What kind of question is that?"

This is on my "A little Whimsy" board

Well, I am here to share.

A few weeks ago I was on FB looking through my feed when I saw something that caught my eye. There was this site called Pinterest.  My curiosity was peeked. I went to check it out and "WOW" it was like a visual overload of  "Eye Candy"!  There were these so many beautiful images all in one place on many different "boards".  The more I began to look the more I was inspired!

Pinterest has only been around in the last year, but somehow I was not aware of it.  

So glad I found this!

 It is a virtual "pin" board.  You know, just like one you would have in your office, room or kitchen.  Things that give inspiration and catch your eye.  Maybe you just want to bookmark a picture or site...this gives you the ability to do so. 

 The other great thing when pinning, the credit is given to the photo source and it links once you pin. 

On my board "Eye Candy"...

If you love to be able to organize your photos...this is the way! I find this much better than using my bookmark on Google or making many folders on my desktop.  I can now see a visual bookmark and easily get back to where it came from.

 You can also follow many friends pin boards as well as them following yours. It is a lot of fun to see what friends are pinning and get to know their style. Another great thing, you get to re-pin images from anyones boards to yours.  It will always show who pinned first and the source.

 Maybe you want to create a board for gifts or where to purchase things you like...easy, you just have to pin it and when you are ready to can find it easily on your board!  So many boards you can create...the possibilities are endless!

"Pretty Details" is where you will find this butterfly packaging

I have to warn you though...this is very addicting!! You can get lost for hours looking through others boards and finding many more beautiful photos to add to yours!  I love it though and only do it when I have a little time for myself to get lost in, which is not much these days. lol 

Love this! On my "Happily Ever After" board

I would love to have you join me if your ready to start pinning!  If you would like to visit my boards here is my link..., you will enjoy a lot more eye candy. You can also join in on the fun by invite. If your interested, just let me know and I will be happy to send you one via e-mail!  

Ready to start pinning...or are you already addicted to the inspiration?!

 I have a giveaway to share with you all this week...

  5. That's so neat. I love all these sites that put the images together as a collage too. Yippee for free inspiration!

  6. I checked out your boards, so pretty. What a great place to collect inspiration. I would love to receive an invite. I love the desks you are considering for your office space. So pretty and feminine...I love every one of them, but I especially have an affinity for furniture with bamboo detailing like the second one.
