Do anyone of you out there use Pinterest? …. otherwise know as the rabbit hole?
I started my account there last year and am trying to figure out the best way to navigate and make use of it. There are so many layers of use, ranging from ‘oh, that pretty’ through to ‘want to remember that color combination’. I oscillate in how I use it, sometimes it is business letting people know I’ve got a new pattern but I think the best use for me is for gathering ideas. You can set up different boards so that you can ‘pin’ in a variety of different ways.
This week I’m one of Craftsy’s Guest Pinners. This means that Craftsy has set up a board just for me where I can share anything I want. I’m going to be there all week so if you want to follow the eclectic mix of pins I’m sticking up come check it out.
To celebrate this fun week of pinning for me I’m putting a special offer up for my followers. Come buy any of my self-published patterns all week, ‘Add to cart’ (don’t use ‘buy now’) and in the shopping cart click ‘use a coupon code’, add code ‘CRAFTSYPIN’ for a 15% discount until the end of Sunday.
To get a flavour of my Craftsy pinning here are a few -
