after weeks of intrigue, i decided to dip my toe into this pinning business over at pinterest. lets just say, i'm officially obsessed. are you with me? for those of you still wondering about pinterest, let me just give you a testimonial.
i love saving and organizing favorite articles, magazine rip-outs, party ideas, projects, inspirational quotes, etc. into my three-ring binders, however the blogworld has overwhelmed me with awesome ideas i'm afraid i'll forget. pinterest to the rescue! with a super simple browser bookmarking system, you can pin (virtually) anything to keep handy for future reference. (i loved giving dan a tour of rooms for our future dream house.) file your faves into neat inspiration boards and at a glance you are inspired by the things you love. i especially appreciate that your featured pins link directly back to their original sources, so you can easily track and re-read what you bookmarked.
of course this wouldn't be a booming online resource if you couldn't follow your faves (ala twitter), so you can look up friends and favorite bloggers galore. you can re-pin what they like too. the connecting of the minds is a very nice bonus. so while i'm not blogging, i am over here pinning. come say hello.
p.s. a client who runs a photog business recently came to me for a new logo design. she emailed me a link to her branding / identity pinterest board and ta da! suddenly we're on the same page about what type of design she is looking for. hurrah, hurrah. such a neat new way for me to get a glimpse of what a client is thinking!
p.p.s. benji recently learned the term, ta da! and shouts it randomly throughout the day. too cute.
what are your thoughts? do you pine for pinterest? why do you love it?
