Cassiefairy is FINALLY on Pinterest!

Yes, I’ve given in and given it a go. Despite not really understanding why I was signing up (really Pinterest gives you no clue when you first log in!) or how to use it (again, not much in the way of instructions for first use), I quickly adjusted to using this new software and after a quick read of the help section, I was well on my way to pin-heaven.

I may never have started pinning if it weren’t for Aimeefairy, who is getting married next year (eeeeeee, massive congrats to her!) and asked me to join Pinterest so that I could see her wedding boards and suggest items for her. So my first board was a wedding mood-board for her, and after repinning a few bits n bobs, I was soon heading off into the blogosphere to find ‘new’ things to pin to it. I even started dreaming that I was pinning things in my sleep.

As a blogger, I love to read other blogs rather than magazines, and I often come across pretty things on blogs that I don’t want to forget, but if I were to bookmark every page that I love, I’d have a Favourite’s list as long as my husband’s arms (yes, he’s practically a monkey!) and I’d rarely look back at them. So its great to have one place to store everything that inspires me and I can re-find what I’m looking for at a glance. Seems like I’ve been resisting using something that could have made my life easier all these years!

I think you could describe me as a little bit keen on Pinterest now and its great that I get notified when my Twitter or Facebook friends start using it, because I love to follow other people’s boards and pinch bits n bobs that I like the look of! Please check out my boards and follow me so that I can follow you back!
