Pinned to the Wall

So it's official.  I'm ruined forever.  There is this thing called Pinterest.  It is an online bulletin board - a place where you can "pin" anything and everything that appeals to you.  And there it sits any time you want to click on and enjoy it.  And there it remains until you want to delete it.  Talk about heaven for an artist!  You can have as many bulletin boards as you like.  "You mean", I asked the cybergods, "I can have one board for everything green, and another board for nothing but cupcake recipes, and another board for things that make me laugh?" "Absolutely" they said with a smile.  One of them even winked at me.

 Well, sign me up!  Here are just a few of the selections from my "Colorboard Green".  If you go to my Pinterest page you will see the credits for all these wonderful images.  And just to demonstrate the depth of my addiction, on my page there is also a Colorboard Red, Colorboard Pink, Colorboard Orange - in other words, I've gone crazy...
flipped completely out...
over the edge...
lost my mind...
rounded the bend...
and landed at The Mad Hatter's Tea Party.
From an artistic standpoint (I'm telling myself) this is a great reference tool.  When I hit a creative brick wall, I log on to Pinterest.
 The whole magical world is there waiting for me .
Several of my artist friends are already talking about forming a Pinterest Recovery Program.
I'm not sure I want to join just yet.
If you haven't already, go to and see what I mean!  You can follow me - or any other nut you choose.  

 But whatever you do, have fun! 

Somebody HELP me!


  1. while there's no help, Beth, there is hope - hope for more Pin-spiration!~

    It truly is a treasure trove. ;o)


  2. There is no cure, Beth! Might as well pull up a chair, get in your jammies, pour some hot cocoa and plan to chill in front of your PC for a good long while! ;-)
    I'm lovin' it!

  3. Pinterest!!! Your green board is gorgous!
