A New Adventure

Maybe you noticed the little red link at the top left of my page. I joined Pinterest. If you haven't joined yet, give it a try. It's free and so much fun. I'm not much on these technical things but this is actually very easy to learn how to use. Think of it as a giant set of bulletin boards that you want to save things to. You can save decorating ideas, papercrafting ideas, crafts, designs, signs, rooms, quotations, recipes and anything else YOU can think of. You can get started by looking at my boards or others and see if it's something you'd like. You can also follow the boards of other friends who are members. If you see something on someone's boards that you like, you "repin" it to your boards. And one of the nicest features about doing this is.....when you click on an item you like on someone's boards, it will take you directly to the website it came from. So often you get right back to a tutorial that the item you like was made from. So cool. Create boards of your own and save the things that inspire you. One warning.....it's addictive. Like You Tube, you can spend all day on Pinterest! Have fun!

It is addictive Mary but isn't there a wealth of inspiration there? I love it although I try to limit the time I spend. Your flowers are beautiful as always...I need to stop pinning and make more stuff! :D
