Pinterest and Me....

As some of you may have noticed, I have not been blogging as regularly as I was... I would like to tell you I have been keeping my nose in the gym, doing the treadmill every day, learning to swim, and losing weight... alas, that is not what I have to report.  I have been working around the house, the yard, throwing out my back, you know, my normal routine... However....

I have discovered the world of Pinterest.  Many of you already know about it.  Typical of me...once I discover something I like, I throw myself into it totally.  If you look on my side bar, you will see a pic of "Pinterest takes me to my happy place".  You can click on it and see what I have been doing on Pinterest.

My original interest, was to find some cute quotes to use on my blog.  Not only did I find quotes, but such cute, original ones, I went a little bonkers.... At first I could not figure out how to pin and re-pin etc, so I saved images, quotes to my computer picture files.  After a short while, I was getting quite a collection...so I began to google and read how to use Pinterest, where I could use Pinterest to save my images and quotes (pinning them to my Pinterest boards) instead of taking up space on my computer.  Much better.

It's all my sister Holly's fault.  She is the one who kept sending me all the cute stuff she found on Pinterest.  I had never heard of it before... I went on Pinterest strictly as something to share with my dear sister... and the rest is history.

Needless to say, it has taken up all my free time.  I have to admit, it has motivated me to cook some new recipes, do a couple creative projects (I will post them later) and get me out searching for recycled items I have seen on Pinterest to make... so it has been a creative avenue...just one which has taken me off course with my blogging....

Eventually, what I learn and make on Pinterest I will share with all of you... until then, if you do go check out Pinterest... "Happy pinning!"  Everyone please have a fun, safe, Labor Day weekend!

I joined Pinterest, but have not done much with it....I have heard of several people who have gotten addicted and I don't need any new addictions :)

I have NO idea what you are talking about, but you have piqued my curiosity and now I HAVE to check it out!

I just looked at the sidebar and resist going there, since I already seem to have a full plate and for the same reason I hesitate to visit some new blog, I'll just stick here for a while and drum my fingers on the table until you get back... :-)

Hi Donna. I wondered where you had been and what you had been up to!! I've done a bit of Pinterest and there are some amazing photos on there. I, too, really liked all the quotes. I will click on your link in a minute to see what takes your fancy! That was very clever of you by the way to put that clever link on your blog!!

Me again! Just checked out your Pinterest boards. My goodness me, you HAVE been busy over there!! I've got a beach one as well, and a quotes one. I've also got one on Italy, but I'm nowhere near at your level. Hee Hee!!
