I had fallen into the obsession that is Pinterest, a couple years ago. Before Pinterest, I would hoard clip-art like no other. I'm really into journaling/scrapbooking, (not your average scrapbooking, more like smashbooking) and I would cut images from everywhere, books, magazines, mail, whatever. I would haul it all around in a big brown file folder holder. I would have it all organized so I could use it easily for journaling or making zines. I still do this. I love it!I started in my early teens journaling, and have pictures and other crap in there just makes it more fun to look back on. The photo above is a shot of a collage of crap on the inside cover of one of my first journals. I really try and incorporate the way my journaling ended up into my blogging and Pinterest is quite a useful tool.
A few years back I was picked as "One Of The Five Pinterest Users To Follow" by PKG Branding. I was not expecting that, or to be labeled a "Mommy Blogger" but it was great to get a lil' recognition.
Now, I'm at over 6, 000 pins and almost 3,000 followers. I've stopped keeping track, but seeing people "re-pin" my images or even images from my blog is totally flattering. Thank You! You following me and the things I love, honestly keep me going. You keep me blogging, crafting, and inspire me to try new things. I'm doing all of this for you. Thank You.
