It took me a long time to join in the Pinterest craze. I didn’t really get what the hype was about and I don’t really have enough time to have another internet addiction. Facebook already keeps me occupied enough.
What finally drew me in were the ecards people were posting on Facebook. They really crack me up. If anyone doesn’t know what I’m talking about, go on Pinterest to the “Humor” section. I sit there giggling away to myself. While Pinterest never fails to give me a good laugh, it also has workout tips, recipes, and DIY projects, among other things.
Sadly, I am depressingly un-artistic. It’s not from a lack of creativity. I have great ideas for cute pictures or fun crafts. The disconnect occurs when I try and bring them to life. The reaction to the result of my efforts is usually “Oh that’s so pretty, what is it?” Oh well. I enjoy looking at other people’s cute crafts.
Thankfully, this year my roommate (and fellow Tribe employee) is the extremely talented and creative Sara Duquette. Not only is she one of the ones that introduced me to Pinterest, she actually is able to make the stuff off the website.
I cannot take credit for her beautiful Christmas decorations she really made by hand, but I do get to enjoy them for this holiday season. If the holiday season lasts as long as it did last year, I will get to enjoy them until March! For all you artsy people looking for homemade present ideas, I highly recommend checking out Pinterest – for everyone else, go get a good laugh.
