It helped me organize recipes and keep track of things I cooked. Gave holiday crafty inspiration and kept a running wish list for home decor. I filed away useful household tips, won a vacation (check out the mention on Mashable here), collected things in Tangerine Tango, filled up a read and to-read bookshelf, and documented my infinite search for the perfect hair style. Pinterest let me laugh a little, reflect, and dream of fancy life and far away places. There are gift ideas and unattainable wants, planning and ideas, stuff I love, and even stuff I don't know what to do with!

It seriously works:
Makes your house smell yummy
When pestilence strikes
The #JetsetterCurator winning announcement tweet

On the theme of easy...a pop of pattern for the kitchen
Made one of these for neighbors
And saved cans all summer to make these lights.
