Pinterest

If you haven't come across Pinterest yet you're missing a trick, a friend of mine sent me an invite last week and I've been using it almost every day since to 'pin' things I find around the web that are beautiful, crafty or inspiring; a few of my favourites . . . .

Old keys by Hakii on Deviant Art


Garden Octopus Dip from Family Fun


A piece from ReneaL on Etsy. Oh to be able to paint!

If you're like me and have bookmark folders crammed with links you'd like to keep track of or beautiful images you love, request an invite on Pinterest - I think it only takes a couple of hours for them to send  one through, and get pinning!

  4. Love that painting by Reneal Jem, but I think I spend far too much time on the computer already...Pinterest would only compound my little "problem" x

  6. Oh to be as organised as you! I love the concept and have seen some of my friends use it to full advantage. Its like virtual scrapbooking/collage, and I do enjoy both. Great images, love the octopus, necklace and painting (Id love to paint too).

  12. I also wish I could draw and paint. Haven't the slightest ability and it's the one talent I really would love to have. Am in awe of people who can beautifully and accurately draw and paint what they see
