P is for Pinterest

April 18, 2015 , In: Inspiration , With: 12 Comments

I am sure a lot of people participating in the A to Z blogging challenge could be talking about Pinterest for the letter P, but I am going to write about it anyway. My computer is being fixed, so it’ll be much more difficult to write this weekend otherwise. (What? I didn’t schedule my posts for the entire month already? Iย did start off way ahead, but now I am just keeping up!)

The Good: Look at all the pretty things. All the things I didn’t know I needed. I have pin boards for reading, writing, DIY, gardening, and fashion. Everything under the sun can be organized on one beautiful interface (even ‘how to organize’ pins!) and it is amazing. One of my favorite boards is my FX Makeup Board. I have so many ideas for my epic Halloween costume. Any guesses from my recent pins? I use my boards as spring boards to get me going on future projects. I even made a “Summer Projects” board, hoping that Luke and I can complete a few of them this year. There are only a few pins in there so far, but I have more I want to add!

I could pin all day.

The Bad: I could pinย all day. It’s addicting. What did I even do with my time before pinning food, gardening, and makeup hacks? Maybe I was actually cooking, or gardening, or putting on makeup? Who needs those things anymore when I can just look at beautiful photos of those things I used to do? (Ok, I have never really gardened. But now that I have a house/land I want to start! Must. Pin. More.)

The Katy: My Pinterest account link is here. I like an eclectic mix of items from Geek, fashion, home, kids, food, and other fun things! Shorter post today….I have pinning to do!

    So true. If only there was a job that called for scrolling through Pinterest while wearing pajama pants and drinking wine *sigh*

    I only recently started using Pinterest but I totally agree–it’s very addictive! I try not to go there until I have some actual free time or I’ll just procrastinate (there’s another good P word)!

      So true. I’m in trouble if I enter Pinterest-land when I have other things to do!

      It really is. I find myself citing that I saw ‘something on Pinterest’ on a daily basis! Thanks for visiting!

    I LOVE Pinterest! I use it all the time for activities in the classroom and library – some cost, some don’t – just nice to know it’s there when needed! Great post!

      I love using it for recipes a lot. It’s nice when I don’t have anywhere else to store meal ideas!

    Pinterest can be addictive. But I think I have it under control. Or not. Depends on how disciplined I am on any particular day. I find blogging much more difficult to control.

      I am getting to that point in blogging. It’s fun! This A to Z challenge is really helping, I think.

    Hahaha.. hilarious image quote. To be honest, I might have said I will be done in a minute, but it has taken me no less than an hour, much to the annoyance of my husband. ๐Ÿ˜› Glad to have come across you. ๐Ÿ™‚
