When my sister got married in 2001, she carried around a large three ring binder filled to the brim with fabric samples, ideas, and other random thoughts.
Fast forward ten years and the three ring wedding binder has been replaced with Pinterest, a social media outlet for pinning your collection of ideas to virtual pinboards. A virtual pinboard for bridesmaid dresses, flowers, dresses, and food become the new standard for brides to be. The wedding party can leave comments about the dresses, flowers, and ties brides pin up on their virtual pinboards. Don’t forget to keep tabs on what the wedding experts of the world are pinning to their boards. The Knot and Style Me Pretty are getting in on the Pinterest trend, pinning hundreds of creative and artistic ideas.
Not getting married, not a problem! People use pinboards to share their personal style, decorate their homes, and manage their favorite recipes. Best of all, you can view pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards are a fun way to learn new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. Not sure what to get your sister for her Birthday? Check out her board for ideas!
Pinterest can be used to pull your thoughts into one place. From the wedding planning to the new home owner collecting decorating ideas, it’s up to you how you manage your pinboards and what you pin.
I have pinboards in these categories:
NWNH – No Way, No How will I ever consider making these ideas! (very true)
Funny but True Sayings (things you want to say to people but won't)
Fabulous Food (recipes to look at but not try)
Wish List (don't need, but want)
The Bucket List.
Wish I was there (Travel Ideas)
