Are You Pinterest-ed?

Have you heard the word about Pinterest?  It's a social sharing site where you can create inspiration boards by pinning all your favorite photos from around the web to your own custom albums.  You can create boards (albums) for whatever you, fashion, decor, travel, or whatever.  It's a great tool for gathering decorating inspiration, recipes, or party ideas, or just admiring all the great things in this world.  Like other social sites, you can follow people and the pictures they pin will show on your home page.  If you like one, you can like it, leave a comment, or repin it to your own board.

"In the Kitchen" - I have so many ideas for the day when I finally have a kitchen of my own to remodel.

"Getting Dressed" - Deep down there's a part of me dying to go back to wearing dresses and pumps instead of sweatshirts and sneakers!

Let me tell you right now, once you get started, YOU CAN'T STOP!!! Pretty soon every time you see a new picture you'll have an urge to pin it to a new board.  Pinterest auto-updates so your home page is constantly filling with new pictures from all the people you follow.  The most addictive pins are food.  Seeing all the yummy pictures that people post almost sends you into a food coma!  It's also can click on the images to go to their original websites.  That's how I found the S'Mores in a Jar recipe!

"Yum" - Hungry yet?!

The best part about Pinterest is that you often find your true sense of style through your boards.  After pinning several pictures, you usually start to notice a certain furniture style pop up multiple times or that you continually pin rooms that have deep blues in them.  It's neat to see how you subconsciously put things together.  I've learned that I'm definitely color obsessed and that industrial decor and graphic patterns tend to catch my eye.

"Work Work Work" - I think I'm addicted to work spaces.

Don't forget to follow me on Pinterest.  I've got 34 boards going so there's always something new coming up!
