As I am sure you must know by now I am rather in love with Pinterest.
Pinterest is a hive of ideas and interests that are just waiting for you to search for them and to gather them together on boards you can go back to when you are ready to be inspired. It is like one big fabulous treasure box where you can have your own compartments and place all your favourite treasures.
I have almost 100 boards on Pinterest, everyone tells me I should have less, apparently it is better for SEO. But I just cannot help myself… there are just TOO MANY fabulous ideas on there and I have too many interests to reduce them. I have a real affection for each and everyone of my boards!
One of my most favourite boards is a collaborative board I run with award winning parenting blogger Chris Mosler. It is called Simple ideas for a rich life and it is basically a collection of ideas and thoughts around simple things we can do or focus on to enrich our lives. I just love that it is both practical and inspiring and practically inspiring. It is also very natural and avoids the need for money!
My favourite pins on here are the super simple and natural flower fairies I made with my daughter last year
and this gorgeous driftwood craft game from Chris’s own blog Thinly Spread, isn’t it lovely?
It is such a pleasure to collaborate on a Pinterest board that is about my values with a true friend whose heart sings the same tune as mine. Collaborating on Pinterest is great fun and I have found it such a pleasure to build and be inspired by this board.
Simplicity is,I believe, key to a rich life and taking pleasure in simple things saves you money and stops you striving endlessly for more. Its all about appreciating and enjoying what you have and making the most of it I think this pin on our board from themetapicture sums it all up for me really.
Finding pins that resonate with me has been a huge pleasure and sharing my pins with like-minded souls has really delighted me.
Pinterest is a wonderful way to find a community of people with the same interests as you. It’s such a great concept really and no matter how unusual your interests or how niche I bet you will find another pinner pinning things that make your heart sing too.
