pinning is the new black

What if there was a place you could go anytime you needed a giggle, or some beauty, or a bit of artistic inspiration?

A quiet place that you can fill with things that you love,


things that make you smile,


things that make you think…

On Pinterest, you can find a new recipe to try, or a peek at your favorite movie star if you’re into that sort of thing, or a billion new hairdos, or the cutest baby pictures ever. That’s the fun part, you collect images that speak to you, and it becomes a picture of who you are, in the most fundamental a-picture-says-a-thousand-words kind of way. It’s social media that shows who you are on a completely different level than facebook or twitter.

And then you start finding images that you know your friends will like. My good friend Debi (of emmatree) and I have been laughing at all the kittens (and cupcakes, but I won’t torture you with those), how much they are killing us, how much they make us laugh, how much we can’t stop looking at them…


And I know that she loves this color…


I know that my friend Graciel of Evenstar Art loves owls…


And well, this could go on for days, but you get the idea. It’s interesting to see what you find yourself drawn to, the images you choose to pin on your own board make up a small vignette of who you are.

Debi and I decided we would both write about pinterest today, you will love her, she is the best writer. Her story is here.

And it’s also nice when you find some of your own images that other people have pinned…


That kind of made my day, a little… (thanks, Janet!)

you are so generous. and right. those kittens are TOO MUCH CUTENESS!!

Ah, an homage to Pinterest. I agree. And you picked out some beauties here, indeed !! ♥

I, too, am loving Pinterest, Kelly. It’s like curating your own little exhibit.

You are so right. Each board is a vignette that speaks to who we are. I’ve embraced Pinterest with enthusiasm and amazement.

Margie and I were pinning last week when we were together.

I too have a board called Turquoise!

I absolutely love the tulip skirt. And pinterest. I’m on there too, of course – pleasurenotes

Lovely post! As a complete newcomer to all things pinned, I must say honestly, it is the crack cocaine of the internet. Instantly addicting.

And that owl? Pinned it from your page my first day as an addict.xo

Hi. My name is Trece and I’m addicted to Pinterest. It has been 73 seconds since my last pin. . .
