I should have listened.

Three of my coworkers were the first to try to convince me to join Pinterest, with a caveat: “It’s really addictive!” they all warned. I resisted for a while, but finally gave in, and were they ever right.

I’ll post more about Pinterest in the future, but already I love it. It’s a great way for me to organize the wealth of information I gather online, and to find great stuff that others recommend.

Case in point: I went on Pinterest and searched for Valentine’s Day ideas. Originally I was looking for something cool I could do with my class, but when I came across this “pin” for an XO Frames Craft from Tatertots and Jello, I was inspired to try it myself: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/175288610466308681/

So, first I “pinned” it to my “Valentine’s Day” board, so I will always have it handy when I’m looking for it. Next I hit the dollar store and picked up supplies: 4 frames, 2 gift bags (I couldn’t find wrapping/scrapbook paper that suited for me so I went with Valentine’s-y bags, which make my product a little cheesier and less classic looking, but oh well) and a bag of clear glass beads. Total cost: $7 plus tax.

Then I grabbed my glue gun and made magic! (Okay, Jen from Tatertots and Jello made magic. I made a reasonable facsimile. Or a cheap replica, whatever; I still did it myself!)

The moral of the story is that Pinterest inspired me, and just might inspire you too! Click the button below to follow me on Pinterest.
