My Pinterest obsession

Yes, I have a love affair going with Pinterest. I can't get enough. It's addictive for sure. You think or plan to spend 15 minutes just browsing and boom before you know it, 2 hours have past and you've been sucked in.  Yes, Pinterest is the new digital "crack".  But I'm happily hooked.  If you haven't visited you should or maybe not, hehehe but fair warning has been given.

Whatever your interest are, there is something there for you and if not, you can be the first to create it,  It is or seems to be one of those things, where you "if you build it, they will come". It's truly magical.  If you follow my blog post then you already have an idea of my interest which are many and varied.  I've found very few things that are able to address "all" of them but Pinterest does. I'm so in love.

So what is Pinterest? Pinterest is a pinboard-style photo-sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections. Pinterest is an online pinboard, a visual take on the social bookmarking site; a social media site that allows users to share photos on virtual bulletin boards.
(btw...the big red "P" you see over my pictures, is a way for you to "pin" them more easily. :-)

So if you're not on Pinterest, hope you will give it a try.  Below you'll find a little more detailed info about Pinterest and how it works. Check it out because...

Pinterest is a tool for collecting and organizing things you love.

Pinning 101

Here are the basics of getting started on Pinterest.


A pin starts with an image or video you add to Pinterest. You can add a pin from a website using the Pin It bookmarklet or upload an image right from your computer. Any pin on Pinterest can be repinned, and all pins link back to their source.


A board is where you organize your pins by topic. You could pin ideas for remodeling your bathroom to your House Projects board, for example. Boards can be secret or public, and you can invite other people to pin with you on any of your boards.

Pin It Bookmarklet

The Pin It bookmarklet lets you easily pin things you see on websites and blogs. To get the bookmarklet or learn more, check out our Goodies page.


When you follow someone, their pins show up in your Pinterest home feed. You can follow all of someone's boards or just the ones you like best. To manage who you're following, go to your profile and click Following.

Home Feed

 Your home feed is a collection of pins from pinners and boards you follow. It's updated every time someone you follow adds a pin.
