    Anybody using Pinterest?

    And if so, what are you "pinning"?

    One of my co-workers told me that it's "the latest thing" and so it's time to learn what it's all about.

    I keep hearing about it & how awesome it is but I have yet to look at it. All I need is another "addiction"... LOL!

    I have one setup and it's lot's of fun you "pin" whatever interests you have, I've got a board for quilting, food, clothes, hobbies. Keepsake Quilting, Fons and Porter and McCall's quilting all have boards on there that I follow. I'm not on there every day like I am with the QB but it's fun to see all the different things that people post.

    I do not need another addiction to eat up my time. Quilting and quiltingboard are plenty for me.

    I like Pinterest, I use it as a visual bookmarking tool. I pin things like recipes and quilt tutorials that I want to come back to later.

    I have had one for quite awhile but am now just getting around to using it and learning how it works, I have mostly quilting/sewing and recipes so far.

    I love Pinterest! I have boards for all sorts of things from recipes to crafty ideas to quilt and color inspiration.

    Here is mine - http://pinterest.com/treasureit/

    My daughter and I were trying to decide on a quilt for her next son (soon to arrive) and so we both pinned lots of boy quilts until we agreed on one. That was a lot of fun!

    This is how I use it as well. I've begun the early planning stages for a party for my son this summer so I have a board for party ideas for toddlers and recipes and stuff like that.

    The thing that I love the most about it is that if things are pinned properly, credit is given and you know EXACTLY what it was you were looking at when you were on that particular site. I also give a little description at the bottom because sometimes even if you pin a good link, they can still change. This way if the site has just been rearranged I can usually still find the item that I want to go back to.
