Follow Me?


When I was at my daughter's home these past few days painting, she said to me in the evening as we sat side by side on her couch, "Mom, I pinned one of your photographs on Pinterest."


Keeping my utter surprise contained, I asked her, "How do you know I am on Pinterest?"


"I searched for you, Mom!" (Still in shock) "Do you want to see my Pinterest?" (There are miracles!)


As I looked at all her lovely categories involving fashion, she said to me, "You have a lot of people following you."  A surprised look came over my face. "Following me? Why are they following me, and where are they following me to?"


 She explained, "The photographs you pin, they are going behind you to look at as well." A sense of worry came over me.


"Oh my gosh! I'm so embarrassed. I easily get sidetracked and completely get lost. I have to open a new window just to find my way Home again!"


I'm in a bit of a panic this evening as I open my e-mail to find 33 new individuals are following me on Pinterest. Does this mean they are as lost as mE?

I have tried and tried to find my own daughter on Pinterest as a stunning underwater photograph she had pinned made me think of Florida, which inspired me to create my "Welcome to Florida by the Lemon Growers Association" character, which reminded me of vintage puzzle pieces I have of all my favorite states, which inspired me to begin working on my Valentines for next year. Soooo..... as I said, I get easily lost! 


Please do not Pin pattern to Pinterest

I think I'm a better "pinner" than I am a blogger. I have over 2,000 followers on Pinterest (out of my control and I also was a little surprised too) and I only have 61 on my lil ol blog. You do have a knack of finding great stuff. God bless!

I can't figure Pinterest out either. I am on there but have no idea what I am doing. I spend so much time blogging that I don't sare start on there too.

Ya'll r a hoot! Here's the skinny on Pinterest Crafters all have some sort of idea saving system, binders, file folders, bulletin boards...think of Pinterest as your electronic bulletin board. You r not limited for wall space like at home so u can have as many boards as u can think up....Christmas, recipe etc. just like u used to tear out that idea out of a book &pin it to your board..on Pinterest u electronically pin it there. Ideas from blogs, website, etsy etc. your "followers" r the people who have similar interests so when ever u pin something to your board they see it too. On your board page you see "follow" those r the people you choose because u have similar tastes, like flipping through their idea book.. It's an amazing portal...it's how I found ya'll

I went a little nuts with pinning - well, a lot nuts - it can be addictive.
Happy pinning xo

I've been on pinterest for quite some time and I've been pinning your blog post pictures all along. Your board is appropriately named "Cute as can be". I was excited when you finally joined and I could follow you (~~)

You are too funny E!!! I'm following you too! And I really don't care how lost we get as long as we are having fun looking at stuff!!!!! Sometimes it's hard keeping up with everything, pinning, blogging, reading blogs, finding crafts and patterns, actual crafting, commenting, checking FB...my goodness I could go on....
I love you orange bird and marching row of delivery (?) guys!
Hugs,
Sandie XO

Too funny. I'm clueless on things like Pinterest and Facebook too. Love your little orange growers figures. They remind me , when we would cross the border into Florida, we had to stop to get an orange juice served up in a little plastic orange container with a straw.

LBP said...

I stalk, er I mean follow you on Pinterest too! LOL! I too was clueless about followers and kept seeing them on my sidebar.. I love that there are so many who have the same silly interest I have!

Blessings

It's pretty impossible to keep up with everyone who follows, but it is nice to know that someone else out there likes the same things that I like. I do follow you.
