Do you remember a few weeks back I went off to London to meet the Pinterest team? Well, since then I’ve had this exciting little post bubbling away in the background just waiting for today to tell you all about it. I was one of three hundred bloggers picked to take part in the Pin it Forward UK Pinterest Campaign, which was a great honour. And this is what it’s all about…
Are you like me? Do you have folders and box files filled with things you’ve seen in magazines and fallen in love with over the years, carefully clipped out and stored? Creative ideas, recipes, home decorating inspiration? Are you full of good intentions about sorting, cataloguing them, sticking them into scrap books and onto mood boards? And like me, have you failed hopelessly?
If this is you, you need Pinterest! It’s entirely changed my way of finding, keeping and sharing inspiration and ideas, and takes up no space at all in your cupboards and on your shelves!
The Pin It Forward UK campaign has been brought over by the Pinterest team from the US to spread the word around the UK via selected members of the blogging community over the month of May. Here on Planet Penny I’ve found Pinterest a fabulous way to collect ideas and inspiration, share what I have discovered with the like minded people who follow my boards and discover a wealth of creative individuals from all over the globe whose images and ideas inspire me.
By joining Pinterest you can create as many boards as you have themes, plan a special party with fabulous decoration ideas, track down recipe ideas, devise craft projects; the only limit is your imagination.
You can find all the Planet Penny boards just here on Pinterest, but the one I am having fun with at the moment is Stitched Together which is all about stitches…knitting, crochet, needle and thread, full of inspiring ideas. I would be so happy if you join me!
If you want to join the party, you can register here. Looking forward to seeing you…!
