Pinterest Interest??

Hi, Lovely People,

My sister forced me to join Pinterest. She said it was such an awesome site, and I needed to be a member so I could benefit from collective inspiration. Since she twisted my arm multiple times, I finally joined up. To start with, I set up the following pinboards:

Repetition - If you know my artwork or the types of things I’m drawn to, this subject will come as no surprise whatsoever.

Little Houses - From dollhouses to doghouses, I’m into little houses.


Good Reads - I LOVE to read, so expect to see my list grow exponentially.

Anomalies - Another subject I often delve into through my art.

I’ll admit it - my sister wasn’t lying. Pinterest is an awesome place where I can curate a collection of inspirational images, ideas or words. I’ve become an addict in less than 24 hours, with no signs of stopping! Phew!! 

The only problem is that it can be a headache to seek out the original poster when re-posting images. When I have a chance, I will try to hunt down credit information. If you know anything about these images, let me know. I prefer to give image credits when possible.

Are you a member of Pinterest? Find me, or let me know how to find you, so we can follow each other! I would love to know what images inspire you.

  1. I LOVE PINTEREST!!! I think I was telling you about it, once upon a time, on a lunch date, far, far away! I use it everyday, it is such a wonderful source of inspiration and a great tool for keeping track of all the content I come across "out there." I can't wait to see your pins!

    In terms of image-sourcing, I use the online "TinEye" tool to find other instances of a particular image online. Give it a try!

    Happy Pinning!! Xo

  2. I signed up to get an invite to Pinterest AGES ago and have never gotten an invite. Boo! How is everyone getting an invite but me?

  3. Dianna - You did tell me about it during that long ago dream (which, seriously, was one of the most inspirational I've ever had!)! I had never heard about Pinterest until you mentioned it. I don't know why it took me so darn long to get over there!!

    Ms. S - Send me your email address on facebook, and I will send you an invite!
