The Cottage Mama on Pinterest

I am a huge fan of Pinterest.  ‘Inspiration City’ is what I like to call it. I’m not quite sure why it never dawned on me to mention that I’m on Pinterest, but I am.  Now I’ve mentioned it ~ The Cottage Mama is on Pinterest.

I usually only allow myself to login to Pinterest once a day because if I go on there any more than that, I will get carried away for hours.  However, I do ‘pin’ things throughout my day with the little ‘pin it’ button in my internet browser.  The amount of eye candy photographs, inspiration and ideas are mind-boggling.  I know I’ve said this before, but the amount of talent and creativity in this world astounds me.  I feel so lucky that a site like Pinterest has been created so we can all bear witness to this creativity on a daily basis.

Some people seem to think that Pinterest is a bit overwhelming, but not me ~ I love it.  When I’m having an non-creative, unproductive day, I can simply login and suddenly I have my mojo back.  Once you see all the amazing projects that are going on in the world it just makes you want to get into the studio and create.

Here are some of my pin boards:

  1. I discovered Pinterest a few weeks ago after hearing about it over and over from friends. I told my husband it’s like clipping out ideas from magazines and storing them, only you don’t end up with stacks of paper to sort through! Love it.

  2. I just got on it a couple of days ago also, I was too scared of getting sucked in before! LOL

  3. Very fun! I’m “mrstammys”, found here:

  4. I love Pinterest too:) It’s such a great way to keep stuff I find online and then I can go back to where I found it! If I just save the pic on my computer I never remember where I found it. And I have a ton of those! So Pinterest is wonderful to me

  5. I am sure I am the only one that has never heard of Pinterest. Sadly the kids think I need to take them to school and go to work. So will have to look at it again but did look at your pin page long enought to see something cool.
