Pinteresting, Very Pinteresting

I have a new obsession. It's Pinterest. Are you on Pinterest yet? I'm totally addicted. It is without a doubt my favorite web site in along time.
What is Pinterest? Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard that lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes. Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. Pinterest is by invitation only, but if you leave me a comment including your email address, I'd be happy to send you an invite.

This is a screen print of my Pinterest.

You can find and follow me on Pinterest here:

You can find links and photos of all kinds of crafty, yummy, fashionable and funny stuff plus much, much more on Pinterest and save them all to your pinboards.  It's like a super, awesome visual version of  your favorites or bookmarks, but everything is organized on boards instead of in folders and each link has a photo, so you (and everyone else) can see it all in a glance.  I first discovered Pinterest right after I started writing this blog, when I realized that thousands of people were visiting my blog with the majority coming from Pinterest.  Thousands of visitors  from a site I had never heard of . . . I was definitely intrigued.  I'm so glad I checked it out, because I love it.

I made this and few other Pinterest signs below.  Feel free to grab it!

I have found Pinterest to be very well designed and user-friendly.  The only issue I ever have is that it sometimes runs slowly or gets overloaded, but it usually rights itself within a few minutes.  Could it be that too many pinners are pinning too many pins?  Nah . . . impossible!  I have a feeling the creators of Pinterest were just not expecting such a HUGE response quite so quickly.

Pinterest is taking over my life (but I love it).

Pintervention . . . I may be headed down that road.

Go ahead and Curate the Internet. You know you want to.
I don't always repin . . . 
Here are few Pinterest Freebies that I made just for you.  If you like them, please feel free to grab them for your own use.  Linking back to this blog and following me on Google Friends Connect, Pinterest or Facebook are not required, but always appreciated.
