What did we DO before Pinterest came along?? I can tell you what I did: I kept an excel spreadsheet of anything I wanted to remember from my magazines or the web. It was semi-effective — at least I had everything stored somewhere. But it wasn’t pretty. No, not like Pinterest.
Now I use Pinterest to save the links or articles I’ve found, and the links others have found on Pinterest too.
If you are Pinning, I’m sure your world has changed for the better like mine! If you aren’t Pinning, well, I think you could be missing out.
Because I love Pinterest, and I love to share what I love, I’ll use (most) Fridays to share a few favorite links I’ve found from Pinterest (or the Pin links so you can see the photo first, then follow the Pin to the blog). Enjoy!
The Best Chocolate Cake (pinned to The Sweet Stuff board).
This Pin is from My Baking Addiction. It’s true. It IS the best. I’ve made it several times since discovering this Pin. I can’t seem to use any other recipe! (I just use the coffee we always brew, Luzianne Medium Roast Coffee & Chicory.)
Burlap Planter Buckets (pinned to my Garden Love board)
This was very helpful when I needed to plant my moveable garden this year. Granted, I haven’t added the burlap because the buckets are hidden in my backyard, but if they ever end up elsewhere, burlaped they’ll be. (See the Purple Area blog for Pinned link.)
Plastic Bag Container (pinned to Getting Organized)
Let’s not even get into the amount of plastic bags that accumulate under my sink (even though I terrify the local grocers with screams of “No plastic bags! I’ve brought my own bag!!”) They still make their way into my home (sigh). I was stuffing them in a kleenex box as this blogger did, which worked pretty well. But House of Grace’s idea of spray-painting an old coffee can is much nicer. Lovely! (Visit the House of Grace blog for the How-To.)
Have any Pins to share?
