{Obsessed with} Pinterest!

Share To:

I am officially obsessed with the new social networking site, Pinterest. Pinterest is a virtual pin board that allows you to easily virtually “pin” beautiful photos from any site you see. No downloading, no uploading….just PIN it! It is highly addicting but so inspiring! When I need a break from my endless working, I hop over for some fun. Here are a few of the boards that I have created:

Cupcakes I Love

Decorating I Love

Fashion I Love

I also love creating more specific boards for certain themes, like:

Royal Wedding Ideas

A fun bonus is that many members not only like to pin beautiful things, but also beautiful people. So, I decided to start a board last night:

People I Love

Are you ready to join the fun?

Head over to Pinterest and request an invitation!

    I have heard about it, my friend just sent a link about her vacation wardrobe wishlist! I just sent in for an invite. What a great idea to keep track of your own ideas, thoughts and interests you see on the web. LOVE IT! Thanks for the link.

  6. Holly says:

    I have been using evernote to save pictures, but this is so much better! Thanks so sharing!!

  7. wendy says:

    Yep, I love pinterest ~ so easy to use!!!

  8. I’ve been addicted since last year. I’m visual {and scatter brained} so it’s nice to remember where I saw something and easily get back to it! So easy to pin too when I see something on the web that I like! http://pinterest.com/wendyshat/

  9. Love this idea….requesting an invite now!

    Email me at kim@thetomkatstudio.com, with the subject line PINTEREST and I will invite you!

  13. Brooke says:

    I too am wasting way too much time finding so many “lovelies” on Pinterest. It is my new addiction as well.

  14. I’m obsessed too! I find myself on pinterest at 2am looking for things and pinning things instead of sleeping! I was so anxious when I was waiting for my invite to be accepted, but now that I have it, I don’t know if it’s a good thing because I lose hours of my day just browsing!

  15. p.s. thank you Kim for being my pinterest follower ๐Ÿ™‚ http://pinterest.com/preppychic/

  20. I love it but sent in for a request and still haven’t heard anything ๐Ÿ™ Hopefully soon!

  21. Lulรน says:

    No, I cannot thank you for this.. because you’ve just caused to me ANOTHER addiction ๐Ÿ™‚
    Pinterest is SO great!

  22. Connie says:

    I too have sent more than once for an invite and have not heard anything. I figured they didn’t want to send me an invitation. ๐Ÿ™

  23. Katiejo says:

    I love that you have Joey McIntyre from NKOTB on your People I Love page! I was a Jonathan girl back in the day…
    I keep submitting for an invitation but still no dice… It’s torture looking at the party and not being able to join in!

  24. Kim, don’t even get me started about Pinterest! I’m sure my husband is sick of hearing of the latest cool idea I found on there. Ha!

    Your boards are beautiful! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  25. Patti J. says:

    I love looking around on Pinterest, but cannot figure it out! Can you give a tutorial on how to get started??? lol!!!

  26. Tina Bartram says:

    I’m dying to get it started but how do I get an invitation?! This is fabulous!!

  27. I am sooooooooooo glad that I am not the only one who is hooked on this site! It is so much fun and I have found so many gorgeous things browsing through the pinned photos. I think thats how I found your lovely website!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Kristen says:

    Same here – I’ve submitted for an invite weeks ago and nothing. Help!

  29. Love it! I requested an invite as well and nothing. I would love an invite if someone would be willing to send me one. cakesbybarbara@hotmail.com

  30. Zoe says:

    I am also completely addicted to Pinterest!! It is a revelation in the way I now collect images for blog posts and means I get to see amazing images that I may never have found.

  31. Robyn says:

    I love Pinterest soooo much! It serves as a great way for me to keep track of all the fashion inspiration I run into. A lot of times I see a photo online and think, “I definitely have pieces that I can use to make that look,” but then I forget all about it. Pinterest allows me to collect all those images in one place and when I’m stuck for inspiration, I just browse my boards.

  32. You know I love it too!! There should be a group for Pinterest addicts! ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. Lindsay says:

    Awesome site! I have been waiting and waiting for my invite to be accepted. Could someone invite me please??!! fastfeet1124@yahoo.com

  34. Kim Daniels says:

    I LOVE pinterest, too! It was so extremely helpful in planning my son’s first birthday. I loved being able to see all the ideas in one place.

  35. katrina says:

    I too am obsessed.. I blogged on this the other day too!
    Love it sooo much, I told my husband it is like shopping without spending a dime ๐Ÿ™‚


  36. It’s somehow so relaxing too isn’t it! It’s a new favourite past-time for me too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  37. I am completely obsessed too ! I LOVE Pinterest!!!!!! I actually follow you! lol
