Blogkeeping: Portfolio Dresses and Pinterest

Chris and I are delaying sharing your Portfolio dresses in order to allow people a little more time to finish. Please add your dress to the Flickr pool, and we will feature your dresses a week from today, Friday, May 13th.

I've been taking a little blogging break this week. The sew along last week was exhausting. I was near the edge of blog burnout, so the rest has been good because I am coming back from the brink :) I just needed a little sleep and a little time away from the computer. Posting will probably be light again next week as I prepare for the birthday event the following week. I've been having fun creating some things behind the scenes that you'll get to see during the event. Can't wait!

Changing gears a little... Have you heard of Pinterest? It's only the best thing since sliced bread. Seriously. Pinterest is a place to "pin" your bookmarks so you have a visual reminder of what they are, not just a list of text links. This is the official Pinterest description of itself, "Think of Pinterest as a virtual pinboard — a place where you can create collections of things you love and "follow" collections created by people with great taste." I am not on Facebook and I don't know a Tweet from a hole in the wall, but I can't get enough of Pinterest. It's dangerous. The first night I got on I was up until 3am. If you're interested in checking out my pins, click HERE. There's also a link in my sidebar. If you are interested in staying up all night joining Pinterest, you may need an invitation because it is still in beta mode. Send me an email, and I'll hook you up. (Thanks, Caroline, for my invite!)

Finally, I want to thank Alana (a.k.a. Mrs. Taylor) from Taylor Made Home for passing the Kreativ Blogger Award on to me. Thanks, Alana!

Have a Happy Mother's Day!

Pinterest is awesome! I think it is the best for those of us who are inspired visually. It is a treasure trove.

just what I need, another thing to get obsessed with! :) I've been resisting because I know I won't be able to balance blogging, facebook, crafting, and everything else. Maybe I'll just start taking shorter showers ;)

I'm still getting used to Pinterest. I do love it...but I'm wondering if it takes the fun out of searching for hidden gems for me....

Well done for being able to step back and take a break from blogging. I think it's necesaary sometimes to let you recharge and LOVE the time you spend online.

It's funny about Pinterest. I don't have (or want) an account but I love visiting other people's pins. Funny, eh? It kinda feels like spying a little.

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

Hi lovely,

I just popped back to say that I LOVE all the things you've pinned. I so enjoy getting to know you, and the things you like.

Hope you're having a lovely break.
