to pin or not to pin
Are you on it? Pinterest? Have you heard of it? It's a virtual pin board where you can save all your favorite things from the internet in one space. I like it because you don't have to bookmark all your favorite pretty things on your computer and you can share them with friends. My computer has a history of crashing, but with pinterest, recipes I want to try, inspiration and crafty bookmarks are not erased with every crash!
warning. you will become addicted. at least at first I was. Its been almost a year now so my obsession has lessened, but then again most of my friends have found it now which makes it more fun.
Some things I don't like about pinterest? A few times I have seen images of my work floating around with lots of repins. That's great you think right? Well not if when you link back to the original source it says google.com and shoots you to the wide open spaces of google images or just "etsy.com". Que Horrible!!! So if you are pinning (or repining), help an artist out... pin ettique states to make sure you have it linked to the original source.
Another sad thing I am seeing happen is the utter downfall of original creativity as creative images regurgitate over and over. and over. woof.
I still love the readiness of fabulous eye candy and another great way to get traffic to my shop and blog so... PIN on!
