8 more days seems like forever...so I'm doing what a lot of you all are doing - adding to my pinterest.  I can get lost there for hours.  Smiley  

If anyone else needs an invite to pinterest, just let me know.  I'm sure I have some.  It's really fun!!!

It's been a while since I posted here, so just updating and whatnot.
 Myself and hayleyhandmade partnered early and I'm happy to report that I've already made a start Smiley

 Now, if only I could get more sleep and more time Cheesy

This swap got me into Pinterest and I've almost switched all my wists to it.  When we get partners I'll have to give her that link rather than the wist one I had listed.

I've got to ask - what's the benefit of a Pinterest as opposed to a Wist? It sounds like people like it better but I haven't tried it out so I'm curious why everyone likes it, hehe. Smiley

Pintrest is crazy. I had (have, it's still there) 155 things on my Wist. I have 784 Pins. Granted, not all of them are craft related, but it give a much clearer picture of my tastes and style, which means my partners get to exercise more imagination rather than just flat copying a thing off my Wist.

I know, I know, I've been talking far too much about Pintrest in this thread. But it excites me. I'm a nerd. I spend more time on there than Facebook these days, and that's saying something! In fact, my Pintrest obsession made it possible to recently spend three weeks completely off Facebook. Not a single 'like', link, or status update.

Just 700 odd pins.  Cheesy

fluffypants, it starts out being the separate boards. Then you start following a few people, and you repin things they've pinned, because it's cool. Then the next thing you know you are following twenty people and have a stream of cool things on your home page that is almost as constant as Facebook with 100 friends. But better, because it's stuff you like.

I think the social aspect of it is what keeps me coming back multiple times a day. Also, the pictures are bigger than on a wist. And because I have separate boards for craft wants, and actual "I want this thing, please buy it" wants, I use it for my birthday list for my family to look at. Which means there is a whole load of commercially made things my partners can be inspired by too. And craft supplies. And tutes I want to try. It's better than a "one day I will..." bookmark folder for that because I see it more often.

I guess I started out he pintrest thing incorrectly... I pressed the "request invite" from the homepage and it sent me an invite. I followed that and it appears I'm "following" a bazillion people!
Most of the stuff it shows is not anything I'm interested in...
I can't get the pinthis button to work on my Explorer bar either... Undecided
I'm not completely sold on Pintrest yet lol! guess I'll have to keep working at it.

I've never been able to get the pinthis button to work either. So usually I just have pinterest open in a tab and I use the url to add my pins. But mostly I just repin. Also you can unfollow people.

I need to really reorganize my pins before this swap starts though. Meh.
