To the point of almost being a dealer.
My drug of choice? Pinterest.
When I first heard of Pinterest, I thought that I would never find a use for it. I don’t have a wedding to plan, I’m not a designer or a fashionista and I don’t spend hours on the net looking for pretty images. I decided to request an invite anyway, being the serial early adopter that I am.
A few days later I received my invite. I’m yet to figure out if this was a good thing or a bad thing. I spent all of two minutes on the site before coming up with at least ten different boards that I could make. The food category alone was enough to keep me staring at my screen for hours on end, pinning one delicious picture after the other.
I’ve discovered that you don’t need to be a designer or a fashion fundi or a bride-to-be to appreciate the stunning ideas and images on the site. I’m not a photographer, but one day I might want someone to take pictures of me and Pinterest has helped me find poses that I may want to try. I’m not a chef, but I’ve found countless meal ideas that are quick and easy to make by even the most disastrous of cooks. I’ve found hundreds of fun and informative games and crafts to do with my little girl. I’ve even become the proud owner of a sewing machine and can’t wait to try some of the patterns that I’ve come across on Pinterest.
My biggest challenge now? Getting off of Pinterest long enough to actually try the dozens of projects that I’ve pinned.
And the dealer part I mentioned above? Pinterest is open by invitation only, so leave me a comment and I’ll send you an invite ;)
