Pinterest: The New Crack

     If you've been wondering where I've been for the past month, I have been traveling, and most likely wasting most of my spare time on a little site called Pinterest.  In case you haven't heard, Pinterest is a fantastic place for getting new ideas on just about anything.  It is also an awesome place to create a virtual bulletin board for all your great finds across the web.  Gone are the days of bookmarking items only to forget about them later.  Not only can you bookmark or "pin" items, you can organize them by categories, such as, "Recipes I Want to Try," etc.  Although Pinterest is free, you have to request an invite or be invited by a current member, which is a drag.  Don't worry, I promise it's worth it.  Hang in there.  When you are a member, you can look up cool topics such as these:

Good books
Handmade Cards
Quilt designs
Seafood Recipe
Spring Fashion
Cupcake Decoration
Kids' Parties
Handmade Gifts
Color Pallettes
Nursery Ideas
Encouraging Quotes
Ways to entertain toddlers
Homeschool ideas
Gift wrapping techniques
How to make a bow

Wedding dresses
Dog clothing
Organizing your closet
How to make jam
Upholstering a chair
Kitchen gadgets
Ab workouts
Flower arranging
How to frost a cake
Winter Decorations
Childrens' Valentines

Where to vacation

Do you get the point?  You can find almost anything on here.  I rarely even Google pictures anymore.  Looking for an idea for a project, dinner idea, gift?  Look no further than Pinterest.  Seriously, you need to join. All the cool kids are doing it.
