Most of you have probably heard of Pinterest. It is a website that allows you to “pin” images from other websites into one nice neat place called a “Board”, each board typically has a theme like “Recipes” or “Fashion”. It’s a fantastic way to display ideas and I use it quite regularly. http://pinterest.com/mikkimcgehee/
The running joke of Pinterest however is that you spend countless hours pinning images of fancy DIY projects, lavish party ideas and fashion you’ll never afford and there it stays, untouched. I am proud to say that I have actually DONE things that I have pinned on Pinterest and I challenge you to do the same.
Example: I found this great recipe online for Panda Express String Bean Chicken. http://pinterest.com/pin/108649409730417144/ I am sad to report that the site has been removed. It tasted amazing! In fact, when I tried the Panda Express version, I was left quite disappointed.
I intend to make “I did it with Pinterest” a regular feature here. It could be recipes, DIY or scrapbook/Project Life related but I think it’s time that more great ideas made it off of pinterest.
Stay Tuned to see how I turned:
