I know so many people who love Pinterest. It's a really easy way to make online file folder for things you don't want to forget about. With beautiful pictures. With websites. With do it yourself instructions. And so much more...
I tried to avoid it for so many years...1--Because it took me alot of practice using it over time to figure out how to use it properly and 2--it's a real time sucker. Before you know it, you've spent hours on it browsing everything from animals to decorating. I discovered my daughter used it in high school to find quotes she liked and then she would reproduce them on paper and color them. I would never have thought of using it for that. Never. But it's all there!
Since we opened shop and started a Lauralee Gifts Pinterest Page , I learned how to use it better and got some clarity on what to save and how to save it. It's a great tool. And now I love it. I used it recently and got a lot of joy in collecting pictures of things I liked for our new/old house we just moved in to. I could show John things I liked and we could talk about styles and colors because they were saved right there on my Pinterest page and my "1930 Bungalow" board.
If you're not a Pinterest user, try it! It's really fun. Plus it automatically links you to how-to videos, fun-to-read blogs, recipes, and container gardening (Oh, I learned a fun tip there too!)
I could not understand this technique and never achieved this look until I saw it simply explained on Pinterest ! Nowww I get it!
The beautiful picturesque world is out there on Pinterest. Just beware of the time sucker.
