How Pinteresting...

I just heard about this and now I can't stop going back there, over and over. This is still pretty new, so if you haven't heard of it let me explain.


Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. It allows you to organize and share all the things you find on the web. You may browse pinboards made by other people to find inspiration, products, recipes, favorite art, books etc. People are using pinboards to create all kinds of favorite lists for gifts, weddings, party planning, home remodeling or anything you can think of. You can follow other peoples boards and start your own.


This is a visual bookmarking system and the pins have a link that goes directly to the site it was pinned from. You can change and rearrange to your hearts content. It is easy to sign up and free. Go to their website at http://pinterest.com/ and ask for an invite. It usually takes only a short time to receive and e-vite back from them. Then you can start adding your pins all over  the place. If you are a visual person you will love this site. I have added a Pinterest follow button to my site if you would like to check it out right now. Have fun!

  7. Hi all, thanks for your comments. I thought I was the last person to find out about this! LOL! Tak555 glad you are joining in on the fun. It is a little confusing at first. I love it now, very interesting to see what fun things people pin. If you are an Etsy buyer or seller you might want to join the Etsy Pinterest Team. Click on the Pinterest Icon with the Heart and join the Etsy team. Pin away! Diane
