When I was a teenager, I kept a bulletin board up in my room with beauty inspiration and pictures of my favorite cheerleading stunts. Movie stars and move quotes all tied together to create a pretty amazing mosaic.
In college, I kept scrapbooks as a way to detox in the evenings once I put studies and sorority president duties to rest.
I’ve always kept journals with favorite pictures, quotes, even inspiration for Christmas table settings and oh yes, every bride kept a binder stuffed full of ideas.
Everything was scattered in different notebooks, different “favorites” files on various computers and I always dreamed of one huge notebook that would hold it all together. But holy cow, wouldn’t that be a HUGE notebook? How could I organize it perfectly without overlapping? Where would I store it?
Then came Pinterest, a virtual pinboard for ideas and inspiration and tutorials and my only complaint about Pinterest is that it didn’t launch until six years after I planned my wedding.
Pronounced “Pin-trest” (like “interest” with a P in front of it!), your mom and Babble and college BFF are probably on it! Sharing ideas and DIY inspiration and yes, I fully plan on helping plan my brother’s upcoming wedding with the help of Pinterest. Need to sign up for a Pinterest account? Leave me a comment here with your email address and I will be happy to send you an invitation! Be warned – it’s highly addictive!
