I really wanted to share this new site with you that I have been having alot of fun with. It’s called PinterestÂ It’s an exclusive, invite only site that allows users to pin images from anywhere on the web onto virtual pin boards, which you can theme and add notes to. You can also follow other pinners and repin items from other users. It’s a fantastic tool for anyone who works in a creative industry, you could use it to plan a theme for an interior, to collect inspiration for a design project or a party or simply just collect a list of things that you love! I love the focus on the visuals and the way it looks is just divine.
I was introduced to the site via Twitter member @notthekindÂ who has a lovely blog and is part of Scottish crafty shop Made in the Shade, who have just launched a gorgeous web shop. So many thank to the lovely and very helpful Carrie for introducing me to the wonderful world of Pinterest!
Pinterest could be compared to Tumblr, it’s a similar concept, but Pinterest is far more sophisticated and the content on there has a more appealing quality to it, as well as the presentation being much stronger. Due to the invite only nature of the site as well it means that the people on there are more focused and interesting than on some other sites.
