Poppin' my Pinterest

I've been a member of Pinterest for quite some time now, but I never knew what to do with it. So yesterday I logged on and saw some awesome stuff, created some boards, and pinned. Yup, I popped my Pinterest cherry.

I can't say that I love it or hate it yet. I still don't understand the whole concept of it. I've never really been one to physically create a pin board so still I'm a little lost.


Okay, so after writing the above two paragraphs, I decided to take a break and log on to Pinterest to see what I could learn from it so I didn't sound completely lost.

That was this morning around 9:30am. It is now 3:30pm.

Yes, I have been on Pinterest for the past 6 hours. And I love it. I have found so many DIY and craft ideas that I can't wait to try. I have not started on my style boards yet, those are still empty. I'll need a whole weekend set aside just to start that.

Here are just some of the wonderful ideas I've found:

Aren't they amazeballs!? Well, I think so anyway and that's all that REALLY matters, right? Lol. Oh, I also came up with a color palette for my living room:

Color by COLOURlovers

I originally just wanted it to be just different shades of grey and yellow, but I think this new palette is way better. The minty color will be used lightly, just in little accent pieces but they yellow, greys, and white will be the main colors. What do you think?

Well have a wonderful weekend! Btw, I haven't yet had a chance to do my Art Journal today but I will post it as soon as I can!

And don't forget to follow me on Pinterest - and you can help me out with it too in case I get lost. Lol.
