Very *pinteresting*!

Have you heard of Pinterest? I didn’t until yesterday. It’s super addicting. And really fun!

It’s kinda hard to describe, but after using it for only one day I am totally addicted! To me it’s like an inspiration board, twitter, tumblr, and facebook all rolled into one. You can make boards and pin things to them, leave comments, follow people, say you “like” things. And re-pin things others have pinned. There’s even a handy tool that you can drag to your web browser’s toolbar to make it easy to pin.

Yeah, I’m gonna have to watch how much time I spend on this! :)

You can make boards about anything you like. So what are the first ones I made? Why, a tape-a-licious board (about all kinds of washi tape!) and a foxy one — of course! Then I made one called camera crushes. Yeah, totally addicting.

Besides the addiction factor, the only thing I’m not too sure about is that sometimes people don’t get attribution. I found several things of mine that had been pinned by others, but the source link led elsewhere…not so cool.

Pinterest is in beta right now, so you need an invite if you want to start pinning yourself — many many thanks to the most awesome Tiff over at iheartart for sending me one! (Hi Tiff!) Need an invite? Just let me know!

You can look around and see what people have been pinning without joining tho. Here’s mine! Are you on? Let me know, I’d love to check out your pins!
