Call it an obsession.
Over the past 6 months I’ve spent a lot of time on Pinterest, I’ve been a member for a couple of years now but more recently I’ve been working on curating boards for Gladys. I’m up to about 1200 pins, which doesn’t seem to touch the sides of some hardcore Pinners from when it started.
We’ve got a saying (or song shall I call it) in our house now – Just keep pinning! – imagine Dory singing that over and over again, you get the idea, because Pinterest is one of those social sites before you know it you’re on a click frenzy for hours. You e-meet people from all over the globe and what inspires them. An amazing visual space.
I thought I’d put together a curation of my favourite Pinners and boards to share with you. Whether you’re new to Pinterest or an old hat Pinner what you will know is there’s always something new to discover every time you log in.
“A person holding an opinion at odds with what is generally accepted.”
A curation of boards that just make me smile. My favourites Words, words, mere words, no matter from the heart and Happiness is a warm puppy which is bound to get you in a good mood.
Anyone in the design space is sure to know Beth, she has a way with styling artful food shots for her blog Local Milk – The Art of Slow Living. I particularly like her Curio board, plus her showcase of her latest moody foody photographs.
Artist, stylist and photographer. Amanda’s perspectives: a portrait gallery, a collection of people shots that keeps me scrolling for hours.
An architect and landscape architect from central Victoria. Natasha brings food, nature and a different side to planning your next garden overhaul. Personally I love the Architecture: cabins board, it makes me want to move to the country and frolic in the fields.
So Pinterest isn’t just about pretty pictures, you can gather some great DIY or help posts. Bright Nest are all about making homeowners happy, they publish their latest home help posts for you to try at home.
And of course if you still haven’t followed Gladys Mack, here’s a few of her boards… I’d love to know what you think?
