My new obsession - Pinterest!

Pin·terest (pĭn'trĭst): n. a social catalog to collect and share things you love

It's my new obsession! I first came across it whilst browsing the lovely blog Secrets of a Butterfly and managed to wrangle myself an invite.

I love the idea of being able to collate all your images into neatly organised boards with the source still attached (something that you could not do with dropbox which I have been using) for other people to explore. The layout of the website is really clear which enables the images to talk for themselves and what I really love is the community feel and the encouragement to go out and explore other peoples tastes and finds. I have been using it to start collating inspirational images for the impending wedding (which as we are on the subject is not going to be until 2012...but I thought I would get started early as surely half the fun is the planning!).

Pinterest is still in it's early days and is currently in private beta so to join you need to go on their waiting list however, I have some free invitations if anyone of you would like to join? Just leave a comment or Tweet me (yes I do that now although I am still getting to grips with the whole hash tag marlarky and abbreviations thang!) and I will email you an invite.

Do you already use Pinterest? If not how to you collate your images?

  1. Welcome to Pinterest, it's a fabulous world ;-)

  2. It's beautiful and I will have to follow you there. I'm also starting up with Tumblr, so it will be interesting to see which one balances out for me as the most useful, but all the glorious visual inspiration is lovely! Hoping your first week of the new year is a good one!
