The first thing I do every morning, after feeding the dog and making myself breakfast, is look at my emails and a whole string of “daily” sites, like bank accounts, OVS (On Va Sortir) to see what’s going on in Quimper, Etsy to view my shop stats, Ravelry to see if anyone has commented on my projects, and then Pinterest. This if you don’t know it already is a wonderful imagery site, where people pin things of interest… just photos, of people, things, places, which are beautiful in themselves. But if you double click on the image, it takes you to the original site it was taken from. So that you can discover much more of the sort of stuff you like looking at, or doing, because often there is a whole tutorial “how to” behind the picture, giving you instructions, ideas, a pattern. I find a lot of my ideas on Pinterest. Painting techniques,
hand made objects of all kinds.
As well as beautiful photography, unusual places, and a lot of humour. Go and see for yourself. All the links to the above pictures, and instructions, are on my boards on Pinterest. Together with thousands more! And you can also pin your own ideas onto your boards, or the general board, and copy other people’s onto your boards too. A really good site, but a terrible time consumer!
