Arts & Crafts, Vacation Info, and Recipes – My Pinterest Favorites
In January of this year I kept hearing about Pinterest but had no idea what it was or how it worked. I had friends that kept sending me invites to join so finally I broke down and joined. Pinterest is a fun online pinboard. There’s really not much to it, you surf the site and find stuff you like and re-pin them to your page for future use. You can find all kinds of nifty ideas, from crafts to recipes. Here are my top 3 favorite things to look for on Pinterest.
Arts & Crafts
I love all the cool ideas people post like using converted hangers for flip-flop storage or dipping the stems of wine glasses into chalkboard paint so you can personalize them for parties. I found out that you can use frozen grapes instead of ice cubes to keep a glass of wine cold. Anytime there's a holiday you will find great gift ideas. There are a ton of decorating ideas and home crafts as well as jewelery ideas and fun stuff for the kids to do as well.
I can't get enough of the travel pics that people post. I particularly like the beach/ocean so anytime I see a beautiful picture of a beach destination, I re-pin so maybe someday I too can travel there, or at least dream about it. I have found some places in Borneo, Bora-Bora, Tahiti, Virgin Islands, China and even here in the U.S. that I would give anything to visit. Sometimes it's just pictures of these places but often times when you click on the picture it will take you to a website link for that destination to get more information.
My most favorite part of surfing Pinterest is finding great recipes. There are some awesome recipe ideas on Pinterest. I've already tried many of the ones I found and re-pinned to my account. I actually featured one on a previous blog, mini chicken pot pies. There are lots of cooking ideas too, like turning a muffin pan upside down and using it to make little taco salad shells. There are tons of desserts, quick and easy recipes, party ideas and more. Definitely check this out around big holiday's like Thanksgiving, Halloween and Christmas.
