(This photo has nothing whatsoever to do with the following post ... it's just that a post with no pictures is a bit boring and I like this one so popped it on to add a splash of colour! Tee! Hee! Hee!)
This may surprise some of you, but I'm a bit of a technophobe. (I know ... a technophobe married to the ultimate Geek Boy ... go figure!!!) It takes me quite a while to gear myself up to embrace new technology and I'll often sit back and watch for a while to see if I REALLY want to take the plunge. Some I have, some I've kept my toesies out of the water.
Now, for some time now, I've been seeing a new button appearing on some of my favourite blogs ...
Hmmm ... "What on earth is this 'Pinterest'?" I asked myself. Self did not have any helpful information!! In fact, self often lets me down badly in the information department! Tee! Hee! Hee! So in a bid to gain knowledge ... and not be left entirely behind in the techno stakes! ... I started to click on those little red buttons to see what happened. Oh the beautiful photos I discovered!! The creatively staged photography, the gloriously colourful gardens, the inspirational decorating ideas! There was a whole new, pretty world out there ... but I still wasn't sure this new thing was for me ... plus I had a few little niggly concerns with it all at first ... which have since been addressed.
Well ... this weekend I took the plunge ... held my breath, closed my eyes and clicked on the "Sign Up" button. I now have a Pinterest account. Hmmm ... so what now? How does this all work? What do I do? Where do I look? Aaaah ... the questions I pondered ... the pretty pictures I admired while pondering!!! :0) I'm still not sure I've entirely got the hang of this newfangled gadgetty thingy, but I do have a lovely collection of inspirational photos growing on my page ... I'm sure I'll learn more tricks as I go along ... but for now, I'm enjoying gathering lovely photos to inspire my creativity ... Oh! And fill in all the spare time I have laying around! Tee! Hee! Hee! Why not click on that red button in my sidebar and have a look at what's 'wasted' my time this weekend ... when I really should have been sewing! :0) I hope you enjoy the pretty pictures as much as I am. It's all Kerryanne's and Laurie's fault! Their lovely pinboards finally tipped me over the edge! Tee! Hee! Hee! Oh ... if you want a good belly laugh, pop across to read Laurie's post about her latest decorating addition to her bedroom HERE ... I nearly fell off the couch laughing!!! She also shared her link on Kerryanne's Friday link up party.
OK ... off I go to do some of the things I didn't do because I was cruising around Pinterest world. :0) Hope your weekend had been a balance of acheivements and relaxation. Til next time ...
