19 Ways I use Pinterest

Growing up, one of my favourite activities was to go through magazines and cut out anything that interested me. My goal was always to glue everything together and make a collage.  That never happened. I never got past the “cutting out pictures process.” I spent hours and always ended up with a pile (or mess, as my mom would say) of cut out inspirational things and photos.

This is why I was so absolutely delighted to come across the website, Pinterest.  For those who don’t what this virtual pinboard is about, check out this video tutorial: How to Use Pinterest. If you need an invite, let me know.

Here are 19 ways I’m using and lovin’ it!

Great article! We use pinterest often to gather inspiration, mostly for our home, but since you recommended some really awesome wedding boards we’ll be all over! Thanks!

I managed to get my mom on there. She’s all about the crochet ideas. Personally I use it as a collection of my favorite photographs.
