Addicted to Pintrest

I had no idea how addicting Pintrest could become.  I've heard about the hype, I even tried it out for a little while a few months back but just wasn't interested.  Low and behold, I wasn't even using it correctly. 

Or maybe that wasn't Pintrest, maybe I'm confusing it with Tumblr.

....(which incidentally, Tumblr lasted a whole week before I said "I don't get it, I just don't get it."  Maybe I didn't stick with it long enough or follow the right people. Who knows.)

Flip flop holders, yes!!  Perfect for a FL girl!

By the way, I'll be posting some of the cool "pins" I've found.

Anyways, I like to READ blogs and get the story behind something....not just look at a picture.  I want to know your story, your inspiration, your reasoning.  Maybe I don't have an imagination (which my parents and Husband would attest that is just simply NOT the case!)  I don't know, blogs with only pictures (like Tumblr) do absolutely nothing for me. 
That's just me.
Yep, making these for my next BBQ!  Why didn't I think of this?

Anyways, I never thought Pintrest would interest me either because it's just me following a bunch of people's pictures and I'm supposed to repin them if I like them.  Right? 

Hand soap, not with legos, but I'm thinking Christmas and holidays, party gifts.  Yes!

Well, my friend invited me to Pintrest so I thought I'd try it out again.  This time I downloaded the "Pin It" button and when I found a website with a really cool sewing pattern, I pushed that cool little button and pinned it to my "Sewing" board.  And voila, I can forget about it until I'm ready.

AHA!  (Yep, the Aha moment). 

I don't have to print all these things out and put them in my ever expanding and disorganized folder that remains at the office and I never remember to bring it home when I want to look at the folder and so I forget again until the next time when I say "why do I even bother" yet start the whole vicious circle again the next day of printing, filing and forgetting.....

Whew!  Did you get all that?

And so now, I'm addicted to Pintrest.  I'm pinning like crazy from blogs with great ideas and pinning from the one person I'm following.  I don't care if anyone ever follows me or if I follow other people.  I just like having a place to file my blog inspirations when I want them.  I can get rid of that folder and file them in Pintrest and they'll be there when I'm home and craving a new craft idea. 

What kid would not LOVE to paint with marbles?
 Now....onto that pesky file folder.  I guess I'll start the search for the great ideas I've filed in the folders and then pin them too.

Wanna follow?  Be my guest!  What about y'all, do you Pintrest?

Happy Wednesday Y'all!


  1. Do you have the space to hang up your flip flops? If so, I envy you. I barely have the space to put my flips flops in my closet.

    Also, I think I need a Pinterest tutorial.

    Rock on!

  2. I am addicted to Pinterest, too! I have founds such great recipes and ideas! The "Pin It" button...awesome!

    It's the best.

    Yes, I want to follow, my friend!

  3. Pinterest is the best! Except when it randomly stops loading or gives you the 500 error message. Which it has been doing to me all day! But otherwise, I love it! There are so many good ideas on there :)

  4. That friend must've really known you couldn't live without it! One of my followers told me that they were avoiding Pinterest so that her husband and child wouldn't starve in their dirty clothes. Oops! I did say she was a follower, didn't I? LOL! Now, I have created all these "PINSOMNIACS!" ;-)

  5. I just went on pintrest for the first this past weekend, and I loved it! I see why so many people are addicted!
