I’ve been hanging out with a few friends lately, gathering recipes, and quotes, images, and ideas, all credited back to the original author. I have gathered so many that there are times when I wonder if I am getting anything done….but enjoying it anyways. It’s stolen time, a few minutes here, and few there. Nothing really much, just a bit of fun, and a lot of creative inspiration. The site? Pinterest.
Now some people have mentioned that they are not going to be spending their time a wasting, hanging out where I have been. It’s my choice, and it’s my time, and I need the creative outlet. For us visually creative people this is like having unlimited credit in a candy store, and no cavities ever.
I found a sign on this site that reads, “The time you enjoyed wasting, is not wasted time.” I totally agree. But there is a also a sign that reads,
Thanks Pinterest, for helping me feel creative, even though I’ve really just been sitting at my computer for the last 3 hours.
Well, it wasn’t three hours, quite….but look at what I have found and pinned to my boards, a recipe for the very best rice rolls with mango, mint, shrimp, and cilantro that’s like a explosion of delight on your tongue. Ideas for cleaning your oven glass that are so simple, you will cry, and it’s not from onions. Mind boggling beauty in images, dresses, fashion, and clever ideas for storage. Ideas for gardens, displaying collections, recipes for pretzels, and doughnuts, shoes to die for.
And here’s the best part, you can follow other peoples boards, choosing what you would like to pin to your board. It’s like having a friend with a wonderful inspiring sense of style, share her secrets with you. We all need a little more creativity in our lives, and if you would like a invitation send me your email to muddybootdreams [at] gmail.com . I am on there as Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams, look me up. I am more then willing to share, and see what you have pinned. I have heard there is a limit to how many invites you can give out at a time but all the other information that you will need is on their site.
And thanks Pinterest, I know it’s not been just 3 hours, but it’s certainly not been time wasted.
