I Love Pinterest


By now, I hope you've discovered Pinterest.

You might think you don't have time to get involved in another social media site.  I understand that.

However, I've found that Pinterest organizes me when I use it correctly.

You know all those recipes you save or print and file somewhere?  I hate to waste all that paper and then not be able to find it when I'm ready to cook.

Now I can 'pin it' to Pinterest using their special button I downloaded to my computer.  I make sure that I am on the specific recipe when I pin it.  This way when someone clicks on the photo, it will take them directly to the recipe.

I've also discovered places I want to visit.  I'm putting together a board for my style of clothing, DIY projects that I hope to make someday, a home design board, and lots of words of wisdom and encouragement.

If you're still doubtful, here are just a few of the things I found on Pinterest this week.

My niece Kristin is pregnant so I have to be on the lookout for cute gift ideas.  The flower stretchy headband and adorable ruffle bloomers have links to Etsy, the place where they can be purchased.

I hope you will join in and connect with me there too.

Blessings and love,

  1. Dear Debbie,
    Even though I strongly feel I don't have time for more computing,I loved the things you come up with.
    The fear not poster is great. I need to put it up all over the house.
    The baby bloomers were adorable. I remember similar items from the sixties. Good luck with your findings.

  5. I've looked at that site and was totally overwhelmed. I almost quit blogging, too, a few weeks ago because being online seems to eat up so much of my time. But, I'll keep blogging, just not as much.

    That said, I do love the photos you shared, especially the baby bloomers!

  9. Likely I'm one of the remaining, stubborn, hold-outs. I have so much trouble keeping up with blogging that I rarely venture out to too many other cyber-domains. That said, I have a huge list of "Favorites & Files" that I frequent often.

  10. I love Pinterest! I could see how someone could veg out on the couch and spend hours pinning. But I use it as a virtual bookmark. It really does help to keep me organized! Oh and the ruffle baby bum is too cute!

  14. I tried to sign up for Pinterest but they said I needed to be invited and they would send me an invite but never did. How did you sign up?
