if i were a pin, this is what i would tack

25 January 2015

pinterest is the type of site that gets me addicted for a few weeks, then i decide i'm wasting too much time so i stop. when i need some inspiration i go back on pinterest, and the cycle repeats. some people use pinterest to find art/crafts to do. some just use it like tumblr and pin whatever they like the look of no matter what it is. some rarely use pinterest and just have it there to gather dust. and some people use it to make storyboards and character boards for their WIPs. now i've never used it for that. i mostly use it for craft, decor and art inspiration. however since my 'novels' always end up diving off a spring board into the land of the never-finished i think i'm going to start using it more for the creative purpose of writing inspiration. what do you use pinterest for?

  2. I usually use it for finding as many amazing fandom pins as possible, e.g. Harry Potter. Or I use it for gathering quotes and places I want to travel to. But I really would like to start using Pinterest for my WIPs

  3. Ooh oh I do that too! I'm either ALWAYS on pinterest or never. At the moment, I'm on it a fair lot, because I'm in a creative mood. I mostly use it for book boards, buuuut I pin a lot of crafty stuff too because I LOVE CRAFTS.

  5. Er - I just commented but I don't think it posted... I'll just write it again...

    I mainly use Pinterest for design inspiration and more recently for my upcoming nuptials. I'm very similar to yourself too in that it can be my most favourite site for about 3-4 weeks and then I'll go through a dry spell for about 3 months. I think what I like overall about the site is that it's there when I need it :).

  6. I use Pinterest for EVERHYTHING
    - it's sort of insane..
    anytime I'm doing work in my art sketchbook, working on typography, or planning ways to decorate my room (hopefully that'll happen this summer,) I run straight to Pinterest, and then there are times where I pin random things just for the sake of it, I think I pinned a photo of some cookie dough last week...
