I joined Pinterest recently, and I must say...it's an engrossing, most-likely addictive, fun little time-waster. I enjoyed pinning and re-pinning for two hours the other day, and it seemed like ten minutes.
This is probably not a good thing.
But, man, I saw how to make S'mores with Easter Peeps and how to use a rustic branch for hanging up a rolling pin.
I learned how to make reindeer heads out of mini-donuts and how to get the musty smell out of towels.
I've already made a compact cell phone/charger holder out of a spray bottle.
I'm going to make this very soon.
Is that beautiful, or what?
I'm amazed at how little I knew until I linked up with Pinterest. There are millions of images/tutorials that are colorful and creative and so smart. Crafts and DIY projects galore (these are my favorite.) There are endless recipes, all of which I want to make tomorrow. It's like a gigantic, fascinating scrapbook that covers every category from "All things beautiful" to "Zebra Pants."
I'm still learning the ropes. I think I deleted one of my niece's boards, but I'm going to facebook her and explain I'm still learning to answer my five-month old phone, so the learning curve for me is shallow.
A category of pins I really enjoy is the statement badges, like this one.
This one yelled at me. I saw it on a day I had skipped the gym. I hate to exercise, but I have to, and this little punch in the gut reminded me I really do want to be healthy. I know this.
I just forget it when I spot things like this.
Which I also found on Pinterest.
Anyhoo. A couple hours a week I'm going to hop on the Pinterest Ferris Wheel and puzzle together my perfect kitchen and discover new ways to use lemon wedges and dryer sheets.

Let's hang out in cyberspace. We'll be like Flat (Screen) Stanleys traveling the universe, discovering all kinds of cool stuff. And it's free!
I'm off now to make a palm tree out of fruit salad.
