I have been so busy this summer running the kids here and there and playing outside that I haven't been reading as many blogs as I usually do. When I don't read as many blogs my inspiration level goes down as well as my incentive for doing my own projects. So while I still love to read creative blogs and be inspired by them, my new favorite thing is to check out pinterest and see what other crafty bloggers and creative people have found. I LOVE IT!! Talk about inspiring.
DIY projects I found on pinterest that are on my Diy board
The best part is that you don't have to flip through pages and pages! The home page is immediatly populated with photos from all the "pins" of people you follow. So even if you only have a few minutes you can grab a few things to pin for inspiration later. It is also a great way to catagorize things you have seen on the web with out bookmarking or useing programs like "onenote". I have a board for homeschool ideas and it's a great way to keep anything I see on the web for homeschool all in one place.
So you sign up at pinterest.com once you have an invite. If you need one I will send you one just email me from the email me button on the blog and when you sign up you will be following me to see whatever I have pinned. So unlike a regular web site you have to have an invite but once that is in place you can see photos of all the things inspiring the people you choose to "follow" on pinterest. You can set up boards that are catagories like "organization", "things I want", "DIY projects", "food", "sewing or tutorials", "for the kids", etc.... The way to add a pin to your boards from a webpage is too add the pinterest bookmarklet into your toolbar (easy instructions on pinterest) then just click on it when you see something cool on a blog or website. I LOVE IT! and of course it is FREE! Email me and I can send you invite. It is so inspiring! What inspires you? Where do you get your home decor, crafty, sewing, DIY ideas?
