my latest obsession...

Have you heard of Pinterest?

It is basically a virtual pinboard where you can "pin" images you love from around the internet all in one place.  I am such a visual person, so I think this concept is genius!  Previously, I had been saving images to my computer, but then I would forget where they came from.  Or, I would book mark sites and tutorials, but then forget all about them because I wasn't seeing the images...just a list of pages.

When I heard about Pinterest, I immediately applied and was accepted last week.  I went through all of my bookmarks, Etsy favorites, StumbleUpon likes, etc. and started pinning like crazy! You can organize your images into categories like "DIY + Crafts" or "Home + Furniture" and then name them whatever you want. My boards look like this...

Another cool feature is the ability to follow other pinners that you think have great style, "like" their pins, or repin their images to your own boards.  Your homepage ends up being a virtual bulletin board teeming with gorgeous-ness...
