And was never heard from again.
Readers, I have a confession: I am addicted to Pinterest.
For those of you who don’t know, Pinterest is an online tool used to collect and organize things you love. People use it to find and organize ideas for everything from crafts to home decor to cooking to weddings and parties to travel and more.
I discovered Pinterest almost two years ago, when my boss at the time showed it to me. She was using it to organize ideas for work. I was intrigued, so I explored the site for a while, made an account, and then realized a little bit later two hours had passed. (Time seems to pass differently on Pinterest…)
Now I wake up and do this:
Okay, so I don’t really do that. But I probably would if I didn’t have to go to work. Maybe not everyday, but at least once a week.
So what do I pin on Pinterest that so holds my attention? Many things. At the moment I have 41 boards and 10,625 pins. (see? I really am addicted). I have boards for my favorite books, movies, comics, and music, for things that make me laugh, inspiring art, interesting fashion, photography, new recipes, craft ideas, places I want to see, things I want to do, wedding ideas (hey, every girl can dream about her wedding, right?) and ideas for my dream house.
I use Pinterest to spark my imagination when I’ve got a block, to find ideas for new designs, to make crafts, and to pass the time when I’m bored at work (it happens!). I also frequently use Pinterest to fuel my fangirl obsessions, which we will talk about in another post. (one addiction at a time please!)
My questions for you: Do you use Pinterest? If so, has it been a useful tool or a more recreational thing? If you haven’t explored Pinterest, does it sound like something you could use or enjoy?

In farewell, a message from Dori, regarding Pinterest:
