I also REALLY love that you can easily find exactly where the original image came from. As an artist whose art images are flying around the web going who knows where, I think this is a brilliant feature to respect the work of original creator/poster. Pinterest is not for everyone, though. My husband totally does not get it. He barely uses facebook and so this new social networking idea has totally perplexed him. Try explaining what a virtual pinboard is to someone who doesnt really use social networking interfaces and see how silly you sound. So we have this joke between us now, whenever he sees me clicking away on the computer across the table during our morning coffee time, he asks me (with a bit of a smirk on his face, mind you) "What's Pinteresting Today, Hon?" To which I reply, "Oh my goodness, you should see this incredible yarn bombed tree!" or "look at the rainbow made of coordinated crayons" or "this is the most adorable baby bunny I have ever seen!"
At which point, he looks at me like I am nuts, smiles affectionately at me and goes back to checking sports stats on his phone. So perhaps my overly manly man isn't my audience for this new found love of Pinning amazing images, but I have a feeling I am preaching to the choir here. Any Pinterest groupies here? Let's have a Pinterest party today! Here are some of the links from my boards that have me swooning and brimming with creative ideas.
As you can see, I am having a bit of an obsession with fiber arts and color.
What do you find Pinteresting? I would LOVE IT if you could post links to your latest Pinterest favorite find in the comments here. I want to see a bit of your passions and dreams. Oh, and not to be totally self serving, but I would be honored if you ever wanted to "pin" any of my photos or artworks to your boards. It's a great way to get more people to see my artwork.
Have a Pintastic Day Everyone!
