Newest Obsession

As my life has taken a new course of direction over the past 6 months or so, I have had a lot of what you might call "down time". While it's true that I have tried to maximize this time to my advantage, I have added a few things that maybe aren't as productive as others. On the upside, I have read 7 substantial (400 pages or more) books, I finished a Christmas Stocking, Tatted some lovely lace and doilies as well as some other long-ago-neglected projects. But...

I have a new obsession. It's something that I HAVE to do everyday! I wake up early, I read my scriptures, check Facebook, read my current book and then...I check it...I have to because I'm totally obsessed with this new site. Do I have your attention??

It's called "Pinterest".

It's a sort of "Virtual Hoarding" site where you create Boards and "pin" pictures of things that you find interesting, entertaining, beautiful, creative, lovely, fabulous and more, more, more. I currently have 30 boards...T.H.I.R.T.Y. !!

They range anywhere from "Quotes" to "Fashion" to "Delectable Desserts" to Chocolate" to "Photography"....and lots more.

It's amazingly entertaining and inspiring in many ways. I have found fabulous recipes, amazingly creative gift ideas, stunning photography, and fabulous decor. It has inspired me to explore my own creativity. It's SO much fun and I have actually learned a lot about my friends and family members who are on the site.

If you want an invite, send me your email address and I'll be happy to oblige...but beware...it's addicting!

I'd love to follow you there. I don't spend as much time "pinning" as I'd like to, but I love to visit the boards of those I know!
