So on a whim I signed up for this and now I am somehow automatically following a lot of people – and, some are following me. One day I’ll learn how to use this,
Seriously. That’s my Pinterest. Oh my gosh! Was I overwhelmed in the beginning. Did I shy away from it or did I? Yes, I did. And then, I don’t know when. But I know it was one night when I was already in bed – I got hooked.
And every once in awhile, when I have insomnia – oh, please – I do not ever have insomnia.
Every once in awhile when I’m waiting for my husband to come to bed, I kind of, well, I kinda overindulge.
And I’d hardly ever admit that to anyone. Especially my best friend. (She hates the WORD.)
But there was this friend who’d moved away. A lot of people move away from me. A lot of people. And it makes me sad. And there was this way that I could connect with her that was different than email and different from facebook. I could connect with her via her Pinterest Boards.
You are laughing now. I know you are.
I am not completely naive. I know that Pinterest Boards are a lot of fantasy. Ok, majority fantasy.
But she had a baby right before she moved and I watched that child become a toddler and I got to see her ideas of what she wanted to do with her daughter. All on Pinterest. The cool thing is, because I do actually have a facebook account also, that sometimes she posted real photographs of those Pinterest ideas on facebook. As in, she actually made some of those “Pinterest crafts.”
YEP. IT CAN BE DONE.
She started having these boards called “LENT” and “ADVENT” and all of a sudden, I realized that this was my jackpot.
You have had those kinds of nights propped up on pillows in your bed. I know you have. The ones where you think, “Oh my word. That is AWESOME. I am going to do that!”
I DID A FEW OF THEM. AND PINTEREST BECAME MY SEARCH ENGINE OF CHOICE FOR CHILDREN’S MINISTRY.
AND IT IS GOING TO BECOME YOURS, TOO! BECAUSE beingmissmelanie JUST CREATED IT’S OWN PINTEREST ACCOUNT
Ok, Ok. Once I get that friend to help me with it …
