My Latest Addiction

Have you heard of Pinterest? I'm sure I'm one of the last to get into this craze, because, well, that's usually how it works. But, oh my. I'm loving this site. A hundred, million thanks to my cousin Britany for inviting me and getting me started. 
{{Funny side note, I was just about to publish this and decided I better check my links to make sure they worked. Well, I forgot the word "the" before Brit's blog name, and I had linked up to some totally random Schmidt family! Brit, did you know there was a blog with such a close name? They look like really nice people! haha}}

For those of you not in-the-know yet, here's what it is. Basically it's a website where you can "pin" images to different bulletin boards you create. You know how lots of people like to tear articles, pictures for inspiration, recipes, hairdos, etc out of magazines? Well, with Pinterest you can keep all those images and ideas organized in one place without having hundreds of loose papers everywhere. It's genius. Pure genius. And 100% addicting.

Here are some of the images I've pinned recently.

I can think of several outfits of mine that just need these shoes.

I think even I could make these and they turn out ok. 

Really?? Doesn't this make so much more sense than the long deep closets usually under stairs?

I'm ready for fall and this would make me so happy to walk by every day on my way to and from work during the fall season.

I could go on and on for a long time about how great this site is. I have boards with school ideas, holiday ideas, food ideas, books to read, quotes I enjoy, clothing ideas, decorating ideas, gift ideas...anything that catches my eye I can pin it and refer to it later. 

I'm loving it! (And wasting a good amount of time loving warned you will get sucked in...).

Tot ziens!

  1. Oh Golly! I am also a Pinterest Junkie now! It has made me feel more relaxed about all the projects I have floating in my head.. now, I can organize them in neat little "boards". LOVE.IT!! Don't you wish we would have thought of it!! And, yes, I did know about the other Schmidts. When I was trying to come up with an address for our blog, I couldn't use their address because it was taken.. so, curiosity had be just type theirs in and see what they were all about. They're a cute family.. and it looks like they just had a new baby girl! :)
