. . . Pinterest!

I first heard about Pinterest a month or two ago, but recently I've found mentions of it everywhere!

Cute packaging idea from

Last week I decided to investigate Pinterest further and I was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting it to be complicated and involve setting up an entire new social network, but the great thing about Pinterest is that while you can use it to be social, you can also just use it purely as a personal pinboard. The uses this has are endless!

You can use Pinterest to plan a wedding, decorate your home, gather recipies or even to remind you about books you keep meaning to read! All you have to do is sign up, install the Pin button onto your browser and away you go. You can collect photos from anywhere on the internet, and you can view and share pictures with other members. You can also view the original source of a picture, so I was able to trace back the love-heart packaging above, to the website that teaches you how to make it!

I'm usually the sort of person who bookmarks several websites a day and forgets to ever look at them again, but with Pinterest I can put everything into one place. I'm going to start up a Birthday Ideas pinboard soon as all throughout the year I come across things I'd love to have, but the minute my birthday or Christmas comes around, I suddenly can't think of a single thing I want!
