I Have PinFluenza…. I Think….

Get Ready, Get Set, PIN!

Oh you all know what I’m talking about.  It is a disease, a drug and a delight all rolled up into one precious package.  For those of you who don’t have any idea what I’m talking about, just saunder over here and we’ll see you again in a couple of days.  

Oh no, I have no qualms at all infecting others with PinFluenza.  Everyone should be so lucky to catch this bug.  Husbands, sons, boyfriends, fiancés- prepare to be the second best thing in the house for a while.  But then again you shouldn’t mind too much cause you’ll totally benefit from PinFluenza, too.  

So Pinterest is this totally amazing and completely addictive social “project board” on the interwebs.  It is very user friendly, extremely inspiring and tons of fun.  Women all over the world are finding exactly what they want for their weddings, holiday parties, birthday bashes, gift ideas, and DIY projects.  There are even pins and boards dedicated to exercise inspiration, every recipe known to man, and tips and tricks for photography you can usually only get by shelling out the big bucks.  Cleaning advice, house hold pointers for sprucing positively ANYTHING and so much more.  Pinterest is so addictive I have to set a timer for myself, of 15 mins at a time, so that I won’t spend hours on end just pinning and pining away.  

A blessing and a curse all in one, pinterest can give you endless ideas for anything you want to do, but first you have to pry yourself away from the site in order to achieve your goals.  The point of pinning is to give us a ‘one stop shop’ for so many ideas and things that can be found on the web, so that you don’t have to endlessly search page after page of search results.  Honestly I’m no good at explaining what Pinterest is all about, so here is a better way of putting it.  

So now that I’ve infected the lot of you, I’m gonna go DIY something for the wedding.  Misery loves company… but this is the best sort of misery– the misery of Pinterest!  Oh how the pins hurt so good!
