I'm a bit of a newb, what is wist/pinterest?Wists is what a lot of Craftsters use to catalog projects they love - either to make something similar in the future, or to inspire swap partners.
Pinterest is the more modern version of Wists. There are links to both of mine, if you want to check them out and see what they are all about.
To get a Wist, you just go to wists.com and sign up. Pinterst is currently in invite-only stages, but I am sure if you wanted one there are a few of us around that could offer you an invite.
