Pinterest.

[[LOOK AT ME POSTING THE VERY NEXT DAY. :)]]

So.. this evening I looked at the ever growing pile of toilet paper rolls being collected on my bathroom counter for a project my sister pinned on her Pinterest and thought to myself. MUST. REFRAIN.  I've yet to join.  Don't get me wrong I've heard very positive and awesome things about it.. but I'm afraid of it being too much.  I mean I already work 4 days a week, go to school online full time, have a dog I mother full time, a Facebook community to keep up with, a Twitter timeline to manage and this here blog to write in (and we all know how GREAT I am at that...) Not to mention the real world to keep active in too.. but then I think of all the awesome crafts and other ideas I just might be missing out on and I think wow my life could use the INSPIRATION from Pinterest..  So I ask you great readers of mine..

What do YOU think of it?  Yay/Nay?

Also I am wanting to make myself a button for this blog.  But I am not sure what the code is for the scrolling textbox.  If you have that code and know what it is can you please e-mail it to me at somewhereoverthecamo@hotmail.com? Thanks!  And be on the lookout for that.  I've linked up to most of y'all that already have buttons on my right side, so some loving back would be greatly appreciated!

Well I'm going to jet off of here and finishing picking this here apartment up before calling it a night.  Something I had at dinner tonight (California Pizza Kitchen.. can you say yum?) totally is not jelling with my tummy tonight.  Boo hiss.

Always,
Amanda

  1. I found this helpful when I made my first blog button. It goes through all the how to make it steps first. But, if you keep scrolling down you'll get to where it shows how to make the grab it box.

  2. I LOVE Pinterest, but very few things are "pinned" for my current use. Are you talking about that adorable black scroll design from toilet paper tubes!? I wanna make it so bad! It's gone viral on Pinterest!

    Anyway, I used to have a file on my computer to save tutorials of cool stuff to make in the future...now it's Pinterest. I use it more for an idea storage system. MY favorite part is that I can pin things from whatever site I'm on (except FB, sad!) with firefox's "pin it" button that you put up in your toolbar. You just hit "pin it", it pulls up the pictures on that page, and you pick which one and which board it goes on. Love it.

    1. Oh goodness that sounds like such a good idea! Save all the ideas and thoughts and so on. You can never have enough organization stuff!

  3. I have no clue how to make a button. I would love to have my own too, so when you figure it out, maybe you could teach me! (You know, with all your free time.... hahaha)

    And I can't believe you've held out from Pinterest for so long. I've found some pretty awesome recipes and I use it to find cute crafts to do (one day) with Sam. I was on it a lot when I first joined, but now I hardly ever get on. It is wicked addictive at first, but I think it's charm wears off after a bit. ;) Follow me if you decide to join and I'll follow you back! :)

  4. I love Pinterest - but it does suck you in sometimes. I like that I have the app on my phone so when I can't sleep at night, I look at Pinterest lol. And I'm still learning the ins and outs of buttons on blogging so I'm no help to you there lol.
