pinterest | do you pin?

i have a new infatuation with pinning.  it's like heroin for style-addicts.  if you've never heard of it, pinterest is a social network for people who like pretty things.  the basic concept is that you can 'pin' images to virtual boards, share with others, and follow collections created by others.  for example, here's a glimpse at my "for little ones" board:



the key aspect for me is that it not only saves your images, but it allows you to categorize them based on boards/themes, tag them easily, and automatically links your images to the original site.  it's a way to:
  • view the favorite things of people whose style i already admire
  • create visual bookmarks to items of inspiration
  • have an easy-to-use, organized virtual space of my very own
you can view more of my pins here to get a better idea of what i'm talking about.  then, go here to request an invitation (and don't forget to follow me)!
