Do you Pin?
I might be a bit slow to catch on to these things... but I'm finally Pinning!
How about you? Are you a member over at Pinterest?
At first I wasn't entirely sure that I would use the site, but it really is VERY handy...
If you haven't discovered Pinterest yet, it's basically a virtual notice board. You 'pin' photos to your board, which includes a link back to the original source. It's kind of like 'bookmarks' but with photos.
You can set up different pin boards within your account... for example, I have one for recipes and one for craft ideas, that way you can keep things organised.
Let's say I was browsing my way through the internet, and I came across an excellent tutorial for Slippers made from Old Jeans...
Now I'm not ready to make them now, but I do want to be able to find the instructions at a later date.... So what do I do?
I 'pin' a photo from the tutorial to my virtual notice board... then in six months time when I'm ready to start making those slippers, I just click on my 'pin' and the link takes me to the tutorial... How cool is that?
So if you're already a member, leave me a comment here so that I can follow you at Pinterest... That way I can see the cool stuff that you 'pin' and if it interests me, then I can 'pin' it too!
And if you're not a member yet, you can either request an invitation from them (which apparently takes a while to come through) or I can send you an invite. Email me from my profile page if you would like one.
