I finally signed up for a Pinterest account. I admit, I had been stalking and lurking the site for months now, but had been afraid to create an account in fear of becoming addicted. Well my friends, I gave in. I caved! My will power ran away.
You can follow me if you would like to check out things I find interesting/lovely/magical. My link is pinterest.com/wonderforest, obviously ;). I don't have much up now, but believe me, I am just getting started... oh yes, I have caught the bug. Now I just have to remember that work comes first, and Pinning comes after.
Here are a couple of my most recent fabulous pins from my Decor Inspiration group:
1. Scrapbook paper as wallpaper? Yes please!
2. I NEED to make some of these asap!
3. These colours are my latest obsession
4. Must have this craft room. That table in the center is calling out to me...
The only thing I don't like about Pinterest would have to be the fact that photo credits get SO lost in there. I had a woman contact me on Etsy a while ago through my photography account asking me if I was the person who had created a specific digital art print. I told her I was, and it was an older print I had created that used to be up in my old old Etsy shop. She then told me a story about how she found the image on Pinterest and was searching forever to find the creator so she could buy one. Thankfully, I had put my full name on the photo and she somehow ended up finding me on Etsy after weeks of searching the net for me. I was so happy she found me because after she told me her story, I listed the old digital print in my current shop and she purchased it, and I also made a couple other sales from re-listing it.
I would have never known my print was being passed around the internet if it weren't for that woman. That is how I first found out about Pinterest. I found a bunch of people on there who were pinning my art and asked them to please put my shop link as the credit.
So, that's currently the only thing I see wrong with their whole system. Other than that though, I love it! It saves me from loading my computer up with random folders full of photos I find (yes, I do that. haha.) I will also be putting my web address on all of my future home decor, art, or select post photos ;).
Oh and for those interested in the immigration status with Dustin, the last step they needed him to complete was to send in a copy of his passport. He just got his passport in the mail, and sent them a copy today!!! We also applied for a work permit for him, so he should be able to finally work in a short while! YIPPEE! Once the case processing center gets his passport copy, we should be hearing back from them with his permanent resident card!!! Finally! It only took three years! Me = happy.
