pinterest.

do yall pinterest?!?!
yayyy or nayyy?!?!
this curious cat wants to know.

if yayyy...
yall can follow my pins HERE.

if nayyy...
please start because i don't wanna be the only peep wasting time pinning.

if you're clueless...
pinterest is a webby place where you can catalog all the things you love.
you do this by pinning a recipe, tutorial, deco or travel pic.
it sounds a little confusing, but it's quite simple. and addicting.
{check out a pinterest video tutorial here.}

fyi: i said nayyy to the pinterest bandwagon for a while.
but then i kept getting alerts that peeps were pinning ps i quilt & rachel griffith pics left & right.
so i drank the kool aid.

wanna drink the kool aid with me?!?!

♥ rachel

Pin It!

I think Pinterest is the greatest thing! Finally I don't have to e-mail myself links to web pages that I want to remember! And now I can always find those recipes I want to try. I just love it!!

Addicted - and although most of it I will never use, I do like it for a recepie index and do reference it for that. (and someday, when I have a giant box full of money, I will reference it for the dream house pics!!) Lol!

amy said...

Count me among the addicted. Somehow when I see the pictures, it makes me feel like I really might get to doing the things I admire (and pin).

jenn said...

Sarah Craig said...

I love it as a cataloging tool - when I see a pic of a quilt I want to make, I pin it - no more searching through named files to find the right one!

Ellyn said...

I'm hooked. I too resisted for as long as I could. Now I am loving it! http://pinterest.com/ellynz/

Denise :) said...

I love pinterest. My daughter pinned some bacon roses she made for her husband for their anniversary. All because of pinterest. It was epic. :)

suemac said...

That pininterest looks interesting. Maybe when I am back from vacation.

bethanndodd said...

I am totally drinking the Kool Aid...mustache and all ;-) There is so much eye candy...how could anyone resist?! Smiles~Beth

Linda said...

I'm totally addicted to seeing what other's have pinned, but I haven't set up a page for my own pins. It is so much fun!!!

Thimbleanna said...

I don't even have to answer that question LOL. See ya on the boards!

Victoria Paige @ Boutique Uniquely said...

This is so funny! I totally agree with everything that little quote says, but I am totally addicted and have been for months! I think I'm following you, but I'll double-check.

I'm here http://pinterest.com/victoriad/

Jennifer O. said...

Nay! Its a brilliant site but I need another social networking stle like a whole in the wall. I have my blog for my own amusement and possibably for other's amusement too! Facebook for Family, friends, and old classmates. Twitter for all the quilty folks. Flickr for photos, and YouTube for videos So I have to just pass, thanks for the fyi though!
I do have a question though for ya Rachel. I get the Google alerts but they do not tell me who is using my post, name, ect., how do I find out who us using them? Because all I get is what has been used and not who is using them.
Thanks!

I'm totally addicted as well. Isn't it the best? I'll follow you!

Paul said...

Yup... I'm a PINNER. I haven't followed other Pinners, and I don't believe anybody follows mine.

I use it as a tool for organizing ideas I have.

Carol T said...

I say "nay" I have signed up for it twice through facebook. Twice now I can't log in so I said forget it. If I could get into my first account I might still like it. Oh well.

Jenn said...

Ok - I've been avoiding it, not knowing what the heck it is, but now, thanks to you, I HAVE to go check it out....sigh.

anniebeez said...

Thanks for the link to the tute, I tried pinterest before but couldn't figure out how to set up an account. There is just no accounting for the duh-ness of age! LOL!

Dirt Road Quilter said...

Love it! Haven't had the time to explore like I would like yet, but love the way things can be shared and organized! Off to find you!

Jennifer D said...

Oh my... I am sooooo addicted. I will follow your pins want to follow mine?

RhonniG said...

Lorna said...

I LOVE to see everyone's pins...I am a totally addicted!

Shannon said...

I am like you in that I am holding back but I might be getting ready to drink the kool-aid. I really don't need one more wonderful website to take up more time. But it seems like a really cool site and like it could be lots of fun. I loved the video, she really made me want to check it out even more. thank you and shame on you for adding this post, LOL!!!

Kathy Grom said...

Magnolia Bay Quilts said...

I signed up a long time ago, but haven't started pinning yet. Gonna have to try it soon, though. I'm following you now -- can't wait to see all the cool stuff you've found.

Cindy said...

Well...I really need this like I need a hole in the head, but I signed up for the waiting list. I'm sure as soon as they do my background check, make sure I'm the right blood type, and see I'm legit, I'll be accepted and sucked into the world of pinning. LOL!!! This does look pretty sweet! I hope I don't have to wait long!

Mindy said...

I do and I love it!

Wendy said...

My name is Wendy and I'm a pinner... I just can't stop! I've not used my 3 invitations if anyone wants one?

Kathy said...

I have seen pinterest for about a month now. I just requested an invite. All the inspiration is heavenly.

Rachel said...

I caved...but I just "started" tonight so I can't say I am addicted (yet...LOL)

Leena Salleh said...

yayyy....:) am following you :)

Amanda said...

My name is Amanda, and I'm addicted to pinterest... ;-)

Jackie Russell said...

How long does it take to get an invite? I requested one on Friday. Can you invite me?

Lauren P said...

Neat! I'm on the invite waiting list!

Janet said...

Yes I'm addicted! I started following your pins yesterday but I've been on there for several months. Love it for bookmarking sites I want to re-visit or recipes to try.

Sew Frenzi said...

It is totally addicting!!

amber said...

Can u invite me? I would love to try it out

amy smart said...

I hear you loud and clear on this one. :)

Prayers for you and yours.

Texana said...

Pinterest should come with a warning label...I am so addicted that it is hard to find enough time to follow the blogs I am also addicted to...

Cassia said...

I found out about Pinterest yesterday. I requested an invite because I DEFINITELY drank the Kool-Aid. Today I did a search to find out how long it will take to get my invite and I find out it could take a couple of weeks. I am oh so sad about this and wondering if you might be willing to pass the Kool-Aid a little faster with an invite.

By the way, because I didn't want to just use you for your invite, I also looked at your pins and they are all so yummy looking! I'm a knitter, but my sister is a quilter and I will be passing along your pin page to her (she is also waiting for an invite - we're so pitiful).

Mallory Hynes said...

I'm beyond jealous of you guys "pinning" - i've been on the site looking around. I feel as though I am a Brooklyn girl looking to fit into Manhattan! Talk about window shopping!

Does anyone know how long it takes to receive an invite from the site? I am on the waiting list but c'mon this is worse than wanting your long-time boyfriend to finally propose. I'm dying here!

Thanks!

Kelsey said...

Yup. I drank the kool-aid a while ago. Even wrote a little code to embed a pinterest button in blogger itself and posted about it. Now all the traffic I get from Google come from keywords related to pinterest buttons lol.

Britany said...

I'm with you Mallory! I love looking at all the pins, but have been waiting over two weeks after requesting an invite. I would love it if someone could help me out and send me an invite so I can join in on all the fun!

Britany said...

I'm with you Mallory! I love looking at all the pins on there and would love to join in on the fun. I've been waiting for over two weeks since I requested and invite and would love it if someone would send me an invite!

Boyd Norwood said...
