I would like to introduce you to my newest obsession:
OK, I have to come clean and really admit to the amount of time I spent onPinterest this summer. Ummm, it was a lot. Hours, maybe days…who knows? I am head-over-heels in love.
According to the Pinterest about page:
Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.
It is just like an inspiration board that so many self-help books and therapists urge people to create. Except that now you don’t have to hunt through magazines for images to tear out and glue on a piece of bristol board.
When you sign up for an account @ http://pinterest.com you install a widget on your browser’s tool board that lets you ‘pin’ all of the interesting things that you find when out surfing. Instead of bookmarking a site or subscribing to a blog you pin a visual picture of what you are interested in.
I use it as a catalogue of inspiration. Here are a few ideas that I love for fall.

- I just love how simple and fun this project looks. A great one for the kiddo’s to help with.
- I love the dramatic effect of the glitter on the black background. It looks easy – although I have learned the hard way that not everything that looks easy actually is! Worth a try anyways.
Sign up and start creating your own pinboards on whatever is important to you. Be careful though, it is totally addicting.
