i have a pinterest problem.

i know there are many who could join me in a Pinterest Anonymous group. i have been spending WAY too much time on it - it's a great zone out, especially lately when i haven't wanted to do or think.  in fact, i've spent more time looking at things to make than actually making things (i think there's a pin about that).

but even more, it's exciting to put everything that inspires you into one place, on one screen. i've learned things, like, apparently i love shades of blues and oranges together.

this board has come in handy as i redecorate the living room... more on that in the future...

and at first, i was all knitting-snob "i already have favorites on ravelry," but then i found some pins that aren't ON ravelry (dear god, what?!) and realized i could pin things that were not patterns, the knitting board was on a roll.  and apparently i am into gigantic knitting.

i have such a pinterest problem that i just made this post a mini-version of pinterest.

oh, and i almost forgot.  following the pinboards of the bloggers i love... i could repin almost everything of kristina's from tidytipsy (as if i didn't already know that from reading her blog).  and the queue i have going on there.  oh boy.  if you are in pinterest, tell me your username!  i certainly need more boards to follow.

i have used it mostly for good, but i do have another pinterest problem.  when i look under "everything" and i see so much "want," "need," "have to have," "yes, please" i get a little uneasy and remember how much were are all too easily tools of consumerism... i am loving pinterest and so far i think it's just been inspiration and not buyneedhavetohavewantgetitnow, but if i start to turn that ugly corner, my pinterest will go the way of my facebook account...

p.s.  (thanks to those who wrote kind words to my last post.  it makes me feel so much better when people appreciate what it's like when you lose a pet you loved so much and don't think you're crazy because it's just a cat.)


  1. thanks for the shout out!! I agree, Pinterest is so addictive, I love it!

  2. i love your knitting board, and really all your boards! i really have to pin less and knit a little more though...

  3. I think I hardly need to comment on this since you already know I spent a ridiculous amount of time on Pinterest as well...but it's funny how it reveals our tastes isn't it! I've also found out that my taste in clothes and decorating is quite a bit different than I thought it was!
