Pinterest Thursdays
I have a new obsession... and it is Pinterest (pronounced like "Interest", but with a "P" in front). Trust me when I say it is one of the coolest websites I have ever come across. And no - I wasn't paid or asked to say that : ) I don't even know the people at Pinterest. But I love it. And I'm obsessed. You know it's bad when a quick peek before bed turns into 30 minutes of browsing... which somehow turns into 11:45 p.m. with my mind racing with creative inspiration! I'm still not 100% sure how it all works, but from what I can tell, random people post (or "pin" as they like to say) images of interesting things they come across. Artwork. Fashion. Food. Seriously... anything you can think of. And you can just browse through all the things people "pinned" up throughout the day. You can even sort by what you feel like looking at. Need inspiration for a living room makeover? A dinner party menu? Fashion trends? Funny or thought-provoking quotes and artwork (my personal fav)? It's all there. And because I like to share - especially things I am super excited/crazy about - I figured that every Thursday I'll do a random post of the coolest things I found on Pinterest each week. Most of it will be quotes and sayings because that is what I really like to look at, but who knows what randomosity I will sprinkle in from time to time. I'll also include links to the specific Pinterest pages I include to make sure I give credit where credit is due. Enjoy!!
