Pinterest my new addiction

Okay so I will readily admit that I am a Pinterest addict, thanks to a number of friends who introduced me.  What is Pinterest?  It is a different kind of social network of sorts and kinda like your bookmarks tool all wrapped up into a visual wonderland for those of us who love to be inspired to do or at least admire what others do. 

Basically, you make online bulletin boards which you can label as you please and then each time you come across some picture or idea online that fits one of your bulletin boards you can pin it to that board.  Then you and others around the world can come back and look at all your nifty ideas any time you like.   I realized very quickly that just pinning things to the boards I had created was not going to be a good option.  What good are 20 random bulletin boards if you never actually use any of the inspiration on them?

So...I made a board and labeled it "Even I can Do This" and I am determined to take things from that board and others like my; "Cookin Good" or "Oh the Places I'll Go" board and make sure they get moved onto my boards such as; "Inspiration Realized" or "Been There Saw That".  I took it this next extra step, because I did not like the idea of coming back again and again to get inspired and then look back at the end of the year and realize just how lame and lazy I can be.  I am proud to say that in the past few weeks I have in fact moved a lot of ideas around.
