Officially Obsessed: Pinterest


I previously mentioned my new obsession with the so-fabulous new internet inspiration bookmarking tool Pinterest. I admit, I was a bit skeptical at first, but after a recommendation from a trusted source I caved in and requested an invite.

What is Pinterest? According to their site: "Pinterest is a social catalog service. Think of it as a virtual pinboard — a place where you can post collections of things you love, and "follow" collections created by people with great taste."

I find the interface really easy to use, the built in browser favorite "pin it" button extremely intuitive and the board pinning system itself very pleasing to the eye. The networking piece of it is also very simple and to the point. And it's very customizable. In short, it's awesome.

I've got my pins linked to my twitter, so you may end up seeing some of my favorite finds that way. I'm going to try and keep it minimal though, as I don't want to clutter it up. ;)

If you want to come check out my stuff I am here at pinterest.com/coffeegrlcrafts
....and if you are on Pinterest too let me know! I'd love to see what kinds of inspiring things you like.
