Ah, Pinterest! Are you on? For people who don’t know what Pinterest is, it’s a virtual pin board where you can catalog and share the things you love.  When I first saw it, I didn’t like it because I didn’t want to reveal what I liked for all to see.  It’s like an open book and I wanted to keep it closed.  Selfish, I know, haha! But then one day I saw a picture of a beautiful umbrella in the “invite screen” and I decided to join on the spot.

Guy de Jean “Can Can” Purple Umbrella

That umbrella was going to be my first pin, I decided.  After I signed up, I looked for that umbrella, and you know what? I couldn’t find it! Well, I decided to pin and the more I saw, the more I pinned.  Re-pinned, actually.  Re-pinned other people’s pins, who had re-pinned other people’s and…(you get it?).  Pretty soon you have a board. You pin pictures.  You follow people. You Ooo & Ahh!  And I’m a good re-pinner! For days I was pinning, staying up late and pinned, and pinned.  I was hooked! Pinterest members know what I’m talking about.  You just get in “The Zone” and you walk away feeling inspired without doing a thing.  Yeah, gotta love it :o)

I saw this eggnog bread on Pinterest and I pinned it to my Cooking and Baking board.  I decided to try it out because then I could say that I actually tried something from Pinterest and say to myself that all this pinning isn’t a waste of time, ha! But seriously, Pinterest is a catalog.  Of the things you love.  And it’s nice to share.
