Last month, I talked about my new addiction. Adult coloring. (Click here to read the post.) Since then, I’ve started another new, to me, addiction.
I know it’s been around for a while, but I’m usually late for everything and Pinterest is no exception. So what’s got me hooked? Visual planning. The ability to see the end result of a recipe, read the ingredients, decide if it would fit my family’s needs, and then pin it to a board to use later.
In the last two weeks, I’ve cooked dozens of delicious new recipes that have—drumroll, please—actually filled the stomachs of my three boys, two of which are teenagers. Can you
hear the hallelujah chorus?
I’ve also gotten great ideas on how to freshen up my wardrobe, redecorate my home on a budget, push my creativity with fun DIY projects, and turn my novels into a visual scrapbook for readers by posting my book covers, photos of people who resemble my characters, setting photos, etc.
I’m struggling to limit my Pinterest time, as I could spend hours of my life there. Do you feel my pain? Are there any other Pinterest addicts out there?
