I love Pinterest! It has a wealth of inspiration, for sewing and other crafty projects, decorating ideas, websites to check out, recipes to try, and so many other wonderful things. The best part is, it helps organize all these pictures so I can come back to them later, plus (yep, notice I couldn’t stick to just one best part…) Pinterest has a beautiful layout — it’s definitely perfect for people with an artistic eye.

I have a pinboard devoted to sewing, of course, and it’s appropriately named Sew Alluring — check it out for sewing and fabric-related treasures. I also have 12 other boards, for design ideas, DIY projects, rooms I love, general eye candy, nifty quotes, delicious-looking recipes, and things that make me smile, about 95 percent of which is pictures of puppies. For those of you counting, you’re right — I also have a few other boards thrown in the mix, bringing my current pinboard total up to 13. But I’m sure that’s subject to change…

Are you on Pinterest, too?

    I Am afraid I would neve come up for air if I went on PINTEREST. I do enjoy seeing, in smaller doses, what other people have pinned! Neat theme for the a-z!

      That is one problem. My sister’s actually waiting until she finishes grad school to get on Pinterest because she doesn’t want to get too distracted by it!

    Hey Kelly, Loving all of your pinboards. I am now following you.
    Before A to Z blogging that is where I would spend most of my time online. It certainly is addictive. I have found lots of great recipes there and this past Christmas I made quite a few last minute crafty gifts I found via Pinterst. If you want to check out my boards, here is my pinterst.

    Happy Pinning,
