Do you have folders and folders of awesome crafts, DIY projects, home decor, inspiration photos, furniture, hairstyles, quotes, etc…taking up space on your computer? Do you forget what you have in those folders? Do you want to share your awesome finds with your friends?

If you said yes to any of those questions ;) Pinterest is for you!!

***

Pinterest was created as a place to collect, organize, and share things you love through “pinning”. Your home page shows you what your friends have recently posted onto their boards. {See below photo}. You can repin any of their pins to your own boards.

Pinterest Giveaway

You can view your own pins…

Pinterest Giveaway

As well as your own boards. Your boards are where you categorize your finds. As you can see in the screen-shot below, each board has a name: Crafts, Food, Home Decor, etc. Organizing your ideas, projects, and inspiration couldn’t be any easier! {You may also notice that the left column gives you updates of who is following you, who repinned your pin, etc…very handy if you ask me!}

Pinterest Giveaway

The screenshot below is a view of our “Crafts” board. It lists the most recent pins first but shows all the items in that category. Every pin includes a caption, the number of repins by other people, likes, and the website it originated from – giving credit to where it’s deserved! :)

    My first pin would be for party planning! There are so many fun and cute ideas floating around in my head that I have seen but it would be nice to 'pin' them down and give credit to those who created them first!

    Laura says:
    That is such a great idea! I seriously have tons of word documents saved in folders as ideas. My question is what happens if someone's site that you 'pinned' goes down or they discontinue their blog? Does it delete the pin that you made therefore not allowing you to see the project you wanted to remember?

    I think my first pin would be going through and pinning everything that I've already saved on my computer as projects that I love. ~Laura (tysonandlaura@gmail.com)

    tammy peden says:
    Pinning would save me so many ":)", "OMG", "LOVE, LOVE, LOVE...." subject lines in emails to my sweet friends sending them all of the goodies I could pin. I guess a PIN could keep me out of subject line SIN!! :)

I think I have over 80 blogs bookmarked with different ideas I need to try! So an invite to Pinterest would be just the thing I need! :)

    Susan B says:
    Oh, I just discovered this earlier in the week--it is SO nifty and I would love to have an invitation! I would immediately pin and make boards of a few of the million of sewing projects and craft ideas I currently have haphazardly saved in my favorites folders--including several HDS goodies.
  196. May 25th, 2011 at 11:19 am
    Kate says:

    All of my friends have recently got on pinterest. I didn't know it was invitation only. I would LOVE to be included in the fun! My first pin would be to this cute site I found that shows you how to make 'tea cups' from easter eggs. SO cute. My daughter wants to have a princess tea party for her birthday and I thought that it would be for a bunch of 3 year olds to decorate their own 'tea cups'.

    I have so many categories on my favorites list because that is the only way I have known how to organize ideas I like. This looks great! I would love a new organization system where I could see pictures rather than trying to remember from a post name. I would start with pinterest by sorting through my favorites list!

I am an Information Junkie and I'm always looking for ways to organize and streamline all of the great ideas out there. As always, HDS is a treasure trove of ideas and amazing offers! I'm quite picky about who I give my e-mail addy to but I'm happy to say that HDS is on the list! I also liked you on FB. Huge thanks as always!

    Where would I start, I have about 20 catagories on my computer from making kids toys to making things for the garden. It would be great to be able to have them all in one place and be alot more organized. Then I might actually be able to finish many of the projects I have started and want to start.
    Also as a Military family it would be nice to have a place where we can store ideas from the house we currently living in, you see we move every 2-3 years and have lived in some great houses that have some great storage areas or great color schemes. So it would be nice to have something to have all those ideas in, so that when we eventually move to a perminant house or build one we can add those to it. Plus when we move our stuff (computer) takes forever to get to us, so it would be great to be able to log in somewhere and look whats there so we can choose colors we liked for the new house.

    Kimmie in Fort worth says:
    That's an almost impossible question to answer!!! However, I saw this absolutely beautiful garden pic on pinterest that looks so much like what I envision for my own garden, that I think it would be my first pin. But what if I see something equally awesome when I logged on for the first time? Well, all bets are off. I just can't say for sure WHAT I would pin first!
  209. May 25th, 2011 at 12:39 pm

    jamie says:
    What an awesome concept! I'm sure my first "pin up" would be one of my favorite HDS links to the burp cloths...under a "baby" creation board. I'm not a mom yet, but love all your good ideas!

    PINVITE me HDS gals!
  213. May 25th, 2011 at 12:53 pm

    Please, please pretty please! With sugar on top! And whipped cream! I have a "todo" folder in my favorites and it's starting to get more than a little out of control. I also have a binder of the things that I've printed, but would love to have them "pinned" instead!

    Heather C says:

I never knew a site had existed like this, so for a while I just had folders and folders in folders on my desktop that i could flip through for ideas on what to paint next, or what home decor projects I would enjoy trying and then this site just *poof* entered my life! :) I would love love LOVE to get it started by the time summer fully rolls around :D I think I would have to pin some type of craft for the home! probably something from howdoesshe too ;p hehe :D you guys have some awesome stuff here and it's great that you guys share it with all of us!!! :D

    I am already a FB fan and receive your emails..my first pin would be a home decor idea because I already have a folder on my computer that is full of home decor ideas!
  230. May 25th, 2011 at 4:35 pm
    Christie says:
    Oh my- not sure what would be my first post on Pinterest. I have so many sites, ideas, blogs, etc under My Favorites , but the scary thing is if my computer crashes I lose all my favorites and I have so many I'll never remember where I've seen all the awesome ideas. It's also my work pc so it's probably a good idea to get them off there and posted on Pinterest! I'd probably post craft ideas because most of the one I make and post my friends ask me about- so I'd share those first.
  231. May 25th, 2011 at 4:48 pm
    Dandi Bond says:

    Liz White says:
    This is such a FABULOUS idea! I have already been doing something like this via Evernote and by creating subfolders in my email client as well as folders on my desktop. Pinterest is the best of all these features and I would love to have access as one of your 20 invitees!
  238. May 25th, 2011 at 5:53 pm
    Karen says:
    I'm always looking at your blogs for baby/wedding shower and party ideas and having this would keep all of my great finds in order. I have too many folders with my "favorites" and it's so overwhelming having to go thru them to see why I actually saved them. I need this and help would allow me to focus on creativity rather than spending time searching and trying to organize inspirations.
  239. May 25th, 2011 at 5:55 pm
    Tana Hendricks says:
    What a fabulous idea!!! I really need this as I have sooo many things saved everywhere, this would help me so much!

    Linda says:
    Oh, this would be a wonderful prize! My bookmarks are soooooo full, it's hard to find anything. The first thing I would pin would be home decor items! Thanks so much for this great giveaway!!

    I'm [cherry] brandy new to blogging world -- and would love to start my Pinterest board collection. If I had to choose what my first "pin" would be it'd have to be cellar full of vintage wines. Preferably showing a little bit of dust, as proof of their age. My family are avid wine makers (and drinkers), and in just a couple of weeks we'll be bottling our 6th batch. This year is a delicious Sangiovese -- grapes imported from the Tuscan regions of Italy! Bellissimo.

    I always get good stuff from your emails, and this is great. I have seen other Pinterest users on the web and it looks fabulous. I would love a better way to organize all the "to do" things I bookmark. (And one that doesn't require tons of folders and tabs in my bookmark folder.) Something I've been meaning to make, that would be perfect for summer, are these friendship necklaces: http://honestlywtf.com/diy/friendship-necklace-diy
    I hope I get an invite!

    My first pin would be something photography related. I have so much stuff in my Favorites that I would need to sort through & I would have tons of stuff to pin from there. The organizational benefits of the Pinterest website look awesome & I would use it every single day if I could just get an invite!

    I think my first pin would be something by Ana White to make! The farmhouse bench, perhaps!
