The first one is always free...hehehe!

So if you have had a little time, you have found the Pinterest Board. Good for you!
So many of us didn't know what it is all about! Just a bunch of pictures~ so what!
But now I know what it is all about so I can clue you in as well.

Once you have logged in, you will see the word Pinterest in red at the top of the screen.

 Right under that is a small tool bar that will read 'Pinners you follow,Everything,Popular,video,gifts'.

 Click on Everything and  a drop down menu of things will appear. Pick one, like 'Crafts' ( who doesn't like Crafts!) A whole new set of pictures will appear, some of them will say something like 'Barbara Glenn onto crafts'.

If you click on the photo it will come up alone on my page. Then you can comment on the photo or idea, pin it to your own board, follow me, follow that particular board of mine or find the original website it was posted on by clicking on the photo again. If you hover on the picture there will be a button that says 're-pin'. When you re-pin, it goes on to your very own boards.
You can give all your boards titles so you know where you put it!  Then if you decide you just must make that  mason jar soap dispenser, you'll know that on your own boards, under your title 'things I just gotta make', you'll be able to find the directions.

You can also Twitter, post stuff to FB or a few other sites and so on.

Of course pinning one thing just leads to pinning more things!
I hope this has sort of helped all you Pin-challenged out there.
Just click away and have some fun with it!

You know...I joined Pinterest a month or so ago...but I just can't seem to "get into" it.

I put off joining Pinterest b/c I heard it was a great time waster... but once I did it was neat to see all the creative projects people have out there!!

I think it's especially a great wedding resource! There are tons of great ideas out there for weddings!

I registered my email address two week ago to join the pinterest but I don't received the invitation from them yet.
