Who Cares About Pinning?

My sisters and I were discussing Pinterest yesterday at Amy's baby shower and the fact that some people don't "get" what the big deal is about it and does anybody actually ever do anything with their pins? And we all laughed because WE DO! Here are some examples:
Andrea & others were planning our sister Amy's baby shower and created an inspiration-board on Pinterest.  I can't give it all away, but the shower was loaded with projects swiped off of Pinterest, one of which was this:

So you see, Pinterest isn't just a time-filler when you are standing in line at the DMV or up late at night.  Pinterest actually makes life easier and a little more fun!  If you haven't joined the Pinterest club yet, just let me know and I'll send you an invite to get you started quicker.  You'll love it!!
