I use it all the time!
I use it while I'm teaching. I have boards created for different subjects and I either refer to Pinterest to help me while I'm planning or preparing materials, OR I've even opened up the website and followed a link to a video clip that I have previewed that I knew would be a perfect fit for the lesson.
I use it at the grocery store. If I find a recipe I want to try, I don't write anything down, I just follow the links to the recipe and read the blog post with the recipe right there in the grocery aile.
I use it for home projects. The other day I was contemplating the purchase of some fabric for a T-shirt quilt I want to make. Rather than wonder how much fabric I needed, I got onto Pinterest and found the pin that I knew would have the information that I needed.
Because I use it a reference tool so much, and because I enjoy blogging, I can see how it's changing the way that we use social media.
However, as much as I would like to talk about Pinterest, the REAL reason I wanted to mention Pinterest at all is because it was through Pinterest that I came across an artist and blogger that I LOVE!
Her name is Chrissie Grace and she creates the most beautiful products and of course they fit my personal taste to a T! So that is why I'm sharing her blog with you here today. My favorite part about her artwork is her use of bright color, and encouraging scripture. Her pieces would make wonderful and encouraging gifts!
Here is the artwork that first caught my eye while on Pinterest. Please take a look at her blog! You will be amazed at all of the beautiful things!
