Oh, my goodness, do I pin!
I have my own little Pumpkinbear Pinterest land right here:
On it you can see my seemingly millions of boards, all neurotically categorized.
I have board for projects organized by theme:
I have holiday boards, with projects and recipes and crafts and homeschool unit studies:
I have recipe boards, some for recipes that I want to make--
--and some for recipes that I make all the time:
I have boards for projects that are imminent to-dos:
I have idea boards:
And those aren't even ALL my boards.
Also, because I'm a big nerd with a library science degree, I curate my boards, which means that I go through them, perfect the links, cross-reference them to relevant boards, and edit the commentary to be descriptive, accurate, and informative.
I can't believe how useful Pinterest has been for me. I use it to brainstorm for homeschool activities within the girls' areas of interest, and for holiday projects and kid crafts. I try new recipes from Pinterest (I've got these cranberry sauce meatballs in the crock pot right now!), and if I like them, then I move them to my Favorite Family Foods pinboard so that I can find them again easily.
Didn't people used to use file cabinets for stuff like that? Geez, wasn't that a fire hazard?
