I cannot tell a lie since we are friends and all. My roommate, Jason, was on Pinterest long before me. I held out. Why? Well, because I thought it was another thing to suck up my time. I already spend hours scouring the Internet for pictures of adorable puppies (not really a cat person so…) He would tell me all the time how much I would love this snazzy site. Still I held off until one day when I caved.
Well, I was an obvious bonehead because this site has changed my life. Okay, not in the way of like making me more organized or finding the meaning of life but in the, wow I can totally save all those toilet paper rolls and use them for meaningful artsy projects and what not. This is useful stuff to me. It has made me more creative and really showed me that I am not the only person in the world that wants a coat hanger made of doll parts or a delicious recipe for vegan nachos (which I have made 100 times without the aid of Pinterest) but theirs are always better and take WAY more work.
Still, late at night when I am suppose to be sleeping I browse Pinterest. I have become a DIY maven, at least in my mind. I have actually only made like 2 things, maybe three, that I absolutely love due to Pinny (I feel like Pinterest and I are close enough now for affectionate nicknames). Okay, I haven’t made a lot for all the time I have spent browsing but hey…baby steps.
Another reason I adore this site is that affirms that there are other people with similar tastes, hang-ups and love for both meaningless and meaningful stuff. I like that. I like that one day I can be finding a use all the spray paint I buy and the next, I can be planning a party for dogs. And all this information is in one spot…mind blown. Okay wait, I know that technically I have to click on the website for the actual directions but you get what I am putting down. Right?
So in closing, I will share my ridiculous Pinterest site with you and hopefully you will still like me after you see how strange I really am. But then you are reading this so you probably already know. And if you feel like sharing yours with me, then awesome!! Find me on Pinterest at Jamie Marose
