Are you on Pinterest? It has seriously been one of my favorite Internet finds of 2011 (thanks, Megan!). It might initially seem like a time suck, but if you use it for good and not for evil, Pinterest can help you more easily find and store those things you’re always finding on the web. You know, those “What a great idea! I need to bookmark this in such a way that will help me find it and then actually do it, too” ideas. I’ve actually done a few of the ideas I’ve found there, instead of just admiring from a distance.
So for today’s weekend links, I thought it’d be fun to just link to some of my favorite Pinterest boards.
• I’d Make That :: My board for all things crafty and how-to. I pin here more than any other board, so I should probably divide these up into sub-boards, so I can find things a bit easier. Like this DIY lampshade recovering how to from Beach Vintage.
Another fun Pinterest find, a sign from Slippin’ Southern.
• I’d Hang That :: Being in full-fledged nesting mode since we moved to a new house about a month ago, I’m always on the prowl for art. I love original art, so this board is where I pin art I’m particularly interested in for our home. I adore this idea for displaying myriad kids art on a miniscule scale from A Thousand Words.
• Fall :: I’ve got a board for each season, but fall is definitely getting the most love these days. Hopefully when the dust has settled on this new home and we’ve gotten into our school routine, we’ll do a few of these ideas. I really love this cider served in an apple idea from Gimme Some Oven.
And if you’re still not sure exactly how to use Pinterest in all its glory, Megan of Sorta Crunchy wrote an excellent beginner’s guide.
