Have you heard of Pinterest? … Well, really, who hasn’t?
Pinterest is a big reason this blog happened, but the inspiration wasn’t in the form you might expect. Pinterest didn’t inspire me to craft. In fact, it was quite the opposite.
If you’re a crafter and use Pinterest you probably know what I mean. Bombarded with hundreds of brilliant craft ideas, tutorials, patterns, blogs, and even shops, it’s a wonder any of us get anything done. ‘Pin now, read later’ is a common comment on the pins.
… Are you really going to read it later?
How many of us actually click through to the link before we repin something? Has anyone else noticed how so many of the ‘brilliant’ Pins are actually reposted images on spam websites? How many of us have repinned the same thing multiple times without even realising?
(I know I’ve been guilty of that. Whoops.)
But no, no, no – it’s a good thing, of course. Hoarding ideas is a fast way to become brilliant yourself, right?
