confession

I have a confession to make. I am a little bit addicted to Pinterest. It's kind of amazing. I love that I can catalog cool things that I see online to reference later. Before, when I would find something cool, like a cute activity to do with kids that I wanted to save for future reference, I would email it to myself and tag that email with something like "kids." But I would forget what I emailed myself because I didn't have a visual. With Pinterest, I log in and there are all of my inspiration boards, right there in front of me. It's brilliant. This is what my boards look like:

 
Then when I click on one of my boards (or categories), I can see everything I've saved under that category. When I click on the image I've saved, it takes me to the site where I originally found my source of inspiration. I love "pinning" when I have a few minutes of down time. You should try it - but I have to warn you that it is a bit addicting. You can follow me on Pinterest here.

How awesome...I do the same thing with e-mailing stuff to myself and then forgetting what it is and having all these e-mails to my self. =] I love this...I'm going to start using it, thanks!

I think it took about a week - maybe a bit longer. It's worth the wait though.
