I don’t do crack. I do Pinterest.

Looking for how to pronounce Pinterest? Click here…


Yesterday Blair posted on Facebook about Pinterest. I’d seen it all over my wall lately.

Pinterest this. Pinterest that. Whatevs.

How do you even say it? How awesome can it be if you can’t pronounce it without some studying? ::eyeroll::

I refused to click. I wasn’t giving in, some odd site for displaying things you happen to like. That’s what a blog/Facebook/Twitter page is for.

Don’t I have enough to worry about without stupid old Pinterest?

Until I caved. And clicked. Just so I could see for myself how lame it was. And?

Became like a cracked out junkie jonesing for my next pin fix. Fell in love.

Oh Pinterest. How I adore you. How you make everything so neat and tidy in your little compartments. Like my own little online bulletin board, welcoming me in with, “Remember this? Remember how much you loved it? We saved it for you. In the correct category.”


I see something perfect and I NEVER have to think about where to find it again. I just pin it. Pin it all!

And I do.

I’ve been pinning all of you too with my Blogger Love category. Well, most. Some of you are stalkers that I know nothing about. :p And I’m still working on it. It’s being updated. If you don’t have a badge on your blog, I can’t really pin you. :/ This makes me a little crumply inside so think about getting one. Just for me.

Let me know if you have Pinterest and I’m not following you, or if you want an invite. (It’s free, I don’t get anything). Because I will. And we can pin together.

Now go see my pretties while I figure out what I can ignore so I have more pinning time today.

    Obviously this is a really old post, but follow me. I LOVE Pinterest.


  • This is how you pronounce Pinterest.

    […] who google the phrase “How do you pronounce Pinterest” every day and then hit my “I don’t do crack, I do Pinterest post” instead and leave in utter […]

    I just found out about Pinterest today on Blair’s blog, which then lead me to your blog (which i am enjoying reading).
    I would love to set up an account. Is there anyway you can please invite me?

  • Kelly

    May 12, 2011 at 9:07 pm

    Oooh will you send me an invite?! I’m working on a badge/button/what have you right now and hopefully can get it posted whenever Blogger ever comes back up. Ugh.

    I’m on the waiting list. Isn’t there someone I can slip a $20 to bump me to the top of the list?!

    I’m still not sure I get the concept… and this is the first I’ve heard of it. I guess I’m living under a rock?

    You had me at “I don’t do crack”.. No, but seriously – love it to. Pinterest, that is. NOT crack.

    May 11, 2011 at 5:54 am

    i’d have more love for Pinterest if they’d send me an invite already.

    waiting = annoying.

    but i’ll wait- because i love the internet. and cute pictures.

    Ok…cause I need one more thing to distract me from housework…send me an invite? I have a feeling that whole ‘crack’ comparison is not an exaggeration ; P

    1. Diana

      May 10, 2011 at 3:04 pm

      Sent you one! Tell the world goodbye as you enter into Pinterest.

    A few weeks after I discovered Pinterest I decided to start blogging about the awesome things I find. It’s a new weekly thing on my blog called Pinterest Pretties. LOVE IT!

    1. Diana

      You should do a link up!! I would love that! I use simplylinked.com – so easy.

    Send me an invite! I requested one, but not just getting one makes me feel like it’s something elite and special…which makes me not like it so far.

    1. Diana

      May 10, 2011 at 2:00 pm

      I sent one to your photo email!! <3

    oooooh I love pinterest. I started to make boards for my wedding reception ideas. I’ll admit I’m still quite the pinning rookie but I’m working on it :).

    1. Diana

      May 10, 2011 at 2:00 pm

      I have to see if I’m following you – I think I am but everyone’s names are different on there.

      Also – you should totally check out the wedding dress I posted in my “swoon” board.

  • Noelle S.

    May 10, 2011 at 9:06 am

    Oh I totally want an invite since my bookmarks are totally a mess of all the crafty goodness I love so much. Thankfully, Hudson is passed out in the Ergo right now so I am off to check out your goodies. =)

    1. Diana

      May 10, 2011 at 1:59 pm

      Sent you one! And you’re going to love it. You’re so crafty anyway that this is just going to bump that up a notch.

    & now there’s an iPhone app, which means my life is officially shot.

    1. Diana

      May 10, 2011 at 12:29 pm

      I found that last night and can’t get it to install on my phone yet. Naturally this means all kinds of angry when I’m out and about.

      But thank you for introducing it to me!!

    Seriously, I’m going to get fired for not actually doing work at work… first facebook, then reading blogs, then twitter, now this. I’m done.
    Do you think I can live on unemployment pay?

    1. Diana

      May 10, 2011 at 12:28 pm

      Yes. You can. Ask my uncle. :p

    I tried to avoid it for a while but I finally gave in on Sunday. I like finding new ideas for things I’ll eventually get aroud to creating

    1. Diana

      May 10, 2011 at 12:27 pm

      I love the idea to use it for that. I have a knitting section for yarn I want. It’s great to have it all in one place.

  • Tammi

    May 10, 2011 at 7:59 am

    Oh my. I love all of your pretties!! I sense another thing to add to my addictions as well. πŸ™‚ I would love an invite.

    1. Diana

      May 10, 2011 at 12:25 pm

      Sent one! I can’t wait to see you get started on it!

      1. Tammi

        May 10, 2011 at 12:33 pm

    1. Diana

      May 10, 2011 at 12:24 pm

      Isn’t it amazing? I seriously thought about it as soon as I woke up. “What can I pin” is always on my mind.
