Thoughts on Pinterest
Technology I love: Pinterest
I have the feeling that if I let it, Pinterest could take over my very life. It is chock full of inspiration. If I had the time/took the time, I'm sure I could find a myriad of ideas that would delight me every single day.
I just keep Pinterest more or less at bay because I don't need the distraction.
Here's why I love Pinterest though. I love magazines. I get ideas for books to read/what's for dinner/decorating/holidays all from magazines. I used to tear pages out of magazines and have a pile of torn out pages to sift through. Now I see something tear-out-worthy and look it up online and pin it. Wonderful!
I pin ideas that seem like a good gift for someone and I pin stuff I would like for myself. At Christmastime, I told Adam to look at my Pinterest boards for gift inspiration.
In our recent decorating of Emma's room, I pinned ideas that she or I liked.
My boards are a little anemic but I'm glad other people have boards brimming with charm to delight my senses whenever I succumb to the siren song of Pinterest.
(Are you thinking that this is insipid because everyone already knows what Pinterest is? Well, I guarantee one of my favorite readers does not. He's a handsome cowboy with a broken leg who still rides but has to climb on the horse using a chair. Hi Tabor. I love you and please be careful.)
