I saw many friends this weekend, and attempted to explain Pinterest to you… but I needed a visual. So, for all of you curious about how you can use Pinterest to boost your creativity and enhance your life (really, it does!), this is it.
Pinterest becomes, like a chameleon, what you need, giving you solutions to the problems you face throughout the day. You can find the motivation, and (skills) to workout with the time you have, the inspiration you need to transform that hum-drum chicken breast that your family needs for nourishment tonight into something you will enjoy cooking. And, I can’t describe the kind of “therapy” you can get from learning how to organize things and get rid of clutter you’ve lived with for years. (Click on the links as I’m talking…visuals always help.) And while you’re cooking,
show your children how mind-boggling and beautiful the word is. Pinterest is a collection of “pins” from people all over the word sharing what they find beautiful, frugal, unique, and “why didn’t I think of that” ways to organize your home.
Pinterest is kind enough to keep track of what you love on virtual bulletin boards, divided into the categories you decide. So, this is your personal therapy. You may not care about what you’ll do to decorate for Christmas this year, but I do. So, you won’t create that board. But, you may want to find some quotes you’d like to live by, throw the most amazing Halloween party on the block, or discover the real life of all of those travel destinations you’d like to visit.
Don’t even get me started on the gardening inspiration I’ve found. Best of all, I’m learning what to do with all the thread, yard, ribbon and buttons I inherited from my mom’s sewing basket. And, all I can say, is that you should see the wreaths, chandeliers, and window treatments I have up my sleeve.
