Listen, I know it's not mascara or lip gloss -and it's certainly not a good pair of boots; but it IS a really rocking source of inspiration these days.
It's funny because I avoided it for a long time; I'd hear people talk about recipes they found on Pinterest and I browsed it casually. I thought "eh, so it's a corkboard of things I like....big deal".
The big deal is that once I started pinning things I liked - I was amazed at how many things were out there that I didn't even know that I liked - or even knew existed! And that is the exciting part of it all.
I've used new recipes, come up with new ideas for decorating and gift giving - and the great thing is - the things you find such as recipes or craft ideas - really do work! Sometimes it's just fun to type things in for inspiration, and then voila - I'm excited to see how it easy it is to go out and do it myself.
Best of all, I love that it's not another Facebook.... I don't have to talk to people; I don't care if someone "likes" my things. While it's nice to see people I know and sometimes share their pins - there's no obligation to chit chat, or even acknowledge one another. It's not meant to be social hour, it's meant to be browsing and exploring time.
And I love it!
