Pinterest - a useful Tool, not a wasteful Obsession.

Just looking at my Pinterest boards makes me happy...ya think I like color?   :)

Are you one of the many addicted to Pinterest? Whether you're looking to redecorate a room, planning a wedding, wanting to try different hairstyles, looking for color inspiration for your next's all there! It's SO MUCH better than just doing a Google images search. On Pinterest you have people with similiar tastes/likes collecting and you just jump on (or jump off - if you are no longer interested in say...lower back tatoos).

I use to rip inspiration out of magazines and even put them into labeled file folders. (Yes, I'm one of THOSE people.) Now, I use Pinterest as my electronic idea board for collecting my art inspiration, all things Christmas, home improvement, yummy food, random goody-ness and of!!! Everything photography...what inspires me, what I'd like to try, tech stuff, what to wear for session and on...and on. I often point clients in that direction to help with thoughts for their session. It's great for people who are more visual.

I try not to look at it as an obsession...more of a way to organize my creative and cluttered mind with a support network.   ;)

Join the "obsession" and follow along...
