When I was asked to involved in the Pin it Forward UK campaign, I was really honoured to be involved. Pinterest has been a love of mine since I first heard about it. If you haven’t used Pinterest before let me tell you a little more about it
What is Pinterest?
It’s like having a online scrapbook full of inspiration. It is a nifty tool for collecting and organising things that you fall in love with!
This can take the form of meaningful quotes, photographs of places you would like to visit, craft projects, even ideas for cooking on the BBQ over this bank holiday weekend.
I have used it in many ways, since I first started pinning. I was given a beautiful, butter soft, vintage leather jacket which had too many tears in to wear any longer, and I have spent many lovely hours looking up amazing craft projects to use up the leather. I also use it in my blog posts, both to inspire me , and as a reference point when I am writing. Pinterest has become integral to the way that I work.
If you feel the urge to try Pinterest (honestly you really must) I must put a proviso in that says it’s very addictive, there is so much valuable information, so many beautiful images, and inspiration that once tried it really is impossible to stop pinning.
As I mentioned, the way Pinterest works is it helps you organise your collection. So you start boards, like display folders, where you keep similar themed Pins all in one place. Here is one of my favourite boards, which gives me inspiration for my outside space : Ana Loves Outdoor Living, where all of the images I have used for this post have been taken from.
Well that’s all from me, apart from to introduce the next person in the Pin In Forward Campaign – Jennifer Howze. Jennifer is one of the founders of Brit Mums, which is Britain’s biggest collective of lifestyle bloggers and social influencers, where I am very proud to be a member. You can follow Britmums on pinterest here, the board covered tomorrow will be the fantastic collaborative Snap Happy Britmums board. If you would like to follow her own personal favourite board, here is the link to Jennifer’s travel board.
