Personally, I like it. I didn’t understand the point for a long time, until I tried it out and saw the organization, craft, and school ideas. That’s what I use it for. I don’t have much use for pictures of quotes or anything like that. I just want a way to keep track of good ideas that I find on blogs or Facebook and to discover other ideas from people I know. But it really only works for things that are visual. I’m also using it for the weekly challenges from Free Play Life (caution: some “bad words” and occasionally turns into a lot of pictures of rear ends….).
But it’s totally safe to hop over to Pinterest and check out my boards!
Anyway, a couple weeks ago, I actually made some of my projects from my Crafts board. It’s easier to see it and decide to do something when I see a picture of it right there, instead of checking a boring list of bookmarks in my browser, or searching for printouts or any other way you might store craft ideas.
I have been collecting a box full of ribbon for a while and always wanted to do something with it and this seemed easy enough. And it was! I had the girls pick out ribbons they liked, then glued them all together with my hot glue gun, which I finally can find thanks to cleaning up the house (yay resolutions!).
I burnt my fingers a bit on the glue, but it was worth it to actually finish a project and make some pretty hair clips for the girls.
