As much as I love DIY and handmade you would think that I spend loads of time on Pinterest but I don’t. I have a personal Pinterest account that isn’t connected to this blog. I have friends who swear by it, and I have heard all the jokes about going into the Pinterest vortex. Until recently, I hadn’t logged into my account in several months if not years. I am not sure why I didn’t use it; I just never got around to it. However, I recently logged back in because a friend on Facebook who cooks a lot said that she uses Pinterest to find recipes. I have been bored with my cooking and looking for new recipes so I decided to dig up my password and log in. At first, I wasn’t sure how to use it anymore and the ads and recommended pins annoyed me. However I figured out how to use it again and found some new recipes to try.
This year I have been doing a basic bullet journal and have wanted to find some new ideas for it. I found out Pinterest is a good place to look at bullet journal ideas. Then I was taking a knit design challenge and I found out that you can use Pinterest to look up knit stitches. I am not sure why that never occurred to me but that is a game changer. Finding that out just made me realize that Pinterest can be insanely useful. I also want to change my hair, guess where I can get ideas on hair color? So I want to find new recipes, get ideas for my planner set up, change my hair and look up knitting and crochet stitches. I am late to this game but I am really seeing how useful Pinterest can be for gathering ideas and inspiration. I think I will log in to check on some of these things. I will see you in a couple of hours.
