This Week's Top 5 "Pin" Picks

Friday, February 10, 2012
If you're not yet using Pinterest, you soon will be. The virtual pin board that lets you organize, store, and share all the gorgeous things you find on the web has caught on like wildfire. I began using it back in August, mostly because everyone else was doing it. But now I love it and realize the many benefits. Basically, you create pin boards (think of them as electronic cork boards). As you find interesting, beautiful, or inspiring photos, ideas, recipes on the web, you pin them to your boards to reference at a later time.

I've gotten lots of great decorating and craft ideas from the site, just to name a few.

This week, I wanted to share some of my favorite "pins" of the week.

1. This photo is great inspiration for exercising. It is so true...

2. If you are looking for organization ideas, Pinterest is your place. I love this wall for organizing the schedules and important papers for your children.

3. And then there are the travel pictures. Oh. My. Stars! I could literally spend an entire day browsing the travel pictures. There are so many places I want to go, and I've added so many more places to my list thanks to the amazing pictures on Pinterest. Take this one, for instance. Can someone book me on the next flight to Positano, Italy?

4. DIY projects abound on Pinterest. From the super simple to complex, everyone from the novice to the experienced DIY-er can find plenty to keep her busy. Next on my list of DIY projects is this chalkboard platter. Don't you love it? I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for platters when I go yard sale shopping this spring.

5. Like I said, there isn't anything you can't find on Pinterest! How pretty are these heels? I love the bow and the stitching.

So there you have it. My 5 favorite pins of the week.

If you are on Pinterest, be sure to look me up and follow. I'll be sure to follow back. Can't wait to see what you are pinning. :)
