Pinterest, We Love You

Well friends, I think it's past time that we talk about the new love of ours and yours, Pinterest.

If you have never heard of it before, Pinterest is a virtual "pinboard" where you collect images, and their corresponding links, to items that you love, want to remember, find beautiful and are inspired by.

It is the visual equivalent of a bookmark bar, the virtual equivalent of a cork board full of beautiful pictures. It's fabulous.

Here is a glimpse of my homepage this morning.

Pretty rooms, pretty clothes, pretty food, pretty decorations, just pretty all around. It is nearly impossible to walk away from it and not feel inspired.

It is constantly changing, and constantly updating. You can follow your friends (and blog friends) to see what lovely things they have found. You can go to the main page and see what the people who work for Pinterest are pinning. You can search for different things if there is something in particular you are looking for. You can add pictures from websites to your own pin boards at any time. It's fabulous.

Here is what you can be expect from us in the near future.
1.) FROM US: The first week of the month will be dedicated ENTIRELY to Pinterest. Each of our posts that week will be a project inspired by a gorgeous Pinterest find. Oooh, how I can't wait for the first of October!!
2.) FROM YOU: The first Thursday of the month we will have a link party dedicated ENTIRELY to your Pinterest inspired projects! Will we still give shout outs to our favorites? Of course! We'll be PINNING them!! It will be a great way to get traffic to your site, with pins of your projects on the LTC ladies' pin boards. :) We'll be spreading the love as best as we can!

3.) WEEKLY: Every Friday Jessica will be doing a "Best of Pinterest" roundup in a specific theme. This girl has a crazy great eye for finding fun things so you'll have to check it out. This will be starting this week.

Can you tell we're excited?! Are you excited?

I love Pinterest too. It is my new favorite thing to do on the computer. If I allowed myself, I am sure I could spend hours just pinning and re-pinning. I have actually done a couple of the DIY projects and Crafts. So I guess I am not just dreaming away, I am actually learning too.
