I heard mentions of Pintrest on Facebook and in blogs I follow, most recently my friend Jamie’s blog. She warned it will “suck you into an abyss of pretty, pretty things.” I clicked on, didn’t quite understand what I was supposed to do, then clicked off.
Then today another friend, Julia, mentioned Pintrest in a Facebook conversation. I asked her to send me an invite. Yes, you need to be invited, it’s fancy like that. So I sign up, I select things that interest me (kids, travel, food) and get flooded with a sea of random pictures. Pretty, pretty things indeed!
I immediately start pinning – Halloween ideas, clothes I like, stone pathway for my dream home, recipes I want to try…
Into the abyss I go. Those dishes and laundry will have to do themselves.
