Pinterest

"Pin What?"  That's what I said.  What is this strange sounding word all these peeps are buzzing about that I can't even pronounce? I don't get it.
Because I'm a curious creature, I followed my nose, and sniffed it out. What did I discover, but a treasure trove of ideas, recipes, decoration tips, susie homemaker advice and an all out ADDICTION!  Ahhhhh... Beware all you creative types out there, Pinterest is for you, but tred cautiously my friends for it sucks you in with the force of the inhalation of a blue whale about to sneeze.  In the words of my two year old student Jearom, "Its danger."

Be warned all ye who wish to dive into the depths of the foreign land known as Pinterest.
Welcome to the world pinterst
Such a lovely place
Such a lovely face
You can check out anytime you like
But you can never leave.

So what is Pinterest?  Its basically a virtual pinboard like one of those cork boards you might have in your house of magazine cutouts of pictures you like or goals your striving for and such.  Except because its virtual, its so much better.
Your first step is to create boards.  So as an example some of my boards are:

Recipes
Decorating
Nifty ideas
crafts
teaching


And then as I look through others boards or look at websites, I pin the picture I find inspiring to my board.  That picture is a link to the website from whence it came giving more detailed info.  Get it?

No, you wont get it until you try it!  If you'd like to try it send me an email or a comment and I can send you an invite.  Don't forget to follow me.  When you follow others you can share ideas with each other which is the whole idea!
