Have I Really Not Written About Pinterest Yet?!

I joined Pinterest 2 or 3 months ago, and it has literally changed my life! All of my craftiness and creativity I've been feeling lately is a direct result of my time spent on Pinterest.

I'm sure you all do by now, but if you don't know, Pinterest is basically an idea-sharing website. You can take anything you love from anywhere on the Internet, and "pin" it to your idea boards. Let's say you stumble across a blog that has a great recipe or craft idea. Simply click the "pin it" link in your toolbar, and it's immediately saved for later when you want to try it.

But my favorite part of Pinterest isn't just saving things I find on the internet; instead, it's perusing through other peoples' "pins" already on Pinterest. You can search just about ANYTHING, and come up with thousands of quality results. I am absolutely addicted.

Here are some examples of great things I've found on Pinterest lately:

This amazing coupon organizer that snaps onto your cart

These fun, adorable 4th of July snacks
Found Here

Some amazing cake ideas for a bachelorette party! (I wasn't brave enough to try either of these for Julie's party, but I wish I had been! So cute and girly!)

I've used it to find craft ideas, organizational help, recipes, dream house and current home inspiration, and so much more! It just makes me happy :-)

Go request an invite NOW if you haven't already!!

And follow me!! I will definitely follow you back, because I love seeing other people's ideas! I'm nosy like that ;-)


**As a sidenote, I think What I'm Cooking Wednesday will be taking a back seat for the summer. Luke has taken a second job helping his cousin most evenings, and when he's not doing that, he has softball games or band practice. So that means I've been living off of salads and sandwiches, eating alone most evenings, and haven't been cooking a whole lot. I'm sure it will be back in full swing this fall!


  1. I am *IN LOVE* with Pinterest! It is helping me stay sooo organized with all my ideas and such! And totally getting me in an artsy/creative mood! I'm following ya, girl!

  2. I just found Pinterest like a week ago.. ive seen people blogging about it but never really looked into it. As soon as i actually went onto the website though my life changed LOL I am just so obsessed and in love with it. Before I used to either bookmark or save pictures to a folder on my desktop this is SO much easier!
    I am now faced with the daunting task of uploading all of those pictures onto there though. I have thousands and it'll take forever, but in the end it will be so much better.
    I am going to go follow you now :)

  3. I actually just joined yesterday but haven't spent any time on there yet....not 100% sure exactly what to do! lol but it looks like I'm going to love it! :)

  4. Jess, I just joined because of your recommendation! :) I'm a little overwhelmed, but I'm sure I'll figure it out...

  5. Everyone IS talking about Pinterest! I'm not sure how to figure it out and use it either,'s fun to look at though! :)


Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment! I read and appreciate each and every one. Blessings to you!
