I only pin things I think I might actually make - there are TONS of cute crafts out there, but unless I think I'll make it, I won't pin it - for example, there's no reason for me to pin a car seat tent, even though they're super cute. So I went through all my boards and re-evaluated and thought "will I make this?" and if I thought "no way!" then I deleted it.
Next up I went through and made sure each pin was on the right board - because sometimes I forget to change boards from one pin to another and things get stuck in the wrong spot.
And while I did that I noticed that some things I must really like - because I had them pinned more than once. So I deleted all duplicates.
NOW - the ultimate question - what do you do with all the pins you've made?? Like you pin something so you can remember to make it, and then you make it - then what? Do you delete it? I didn't want to do that - I'm not sure why... So I have a board called "ACCOMPLISHED THESE PINS - WAHOO!" and I move pins from their original board to that board when I finish them. It's a morale booster because I have 73 things on that board - so I can tell myself that I really am doing something!!
Favorite Boards of Mine:
obviously, the one where I show off things - Projects by Me
Projects to Make
Projects to Sew
and then all my other boards are favorites too - these 3 just stick out above the rest.
So if you have a minute, organize your Pinterest Boards - it's liberating!
Do you need an invite to Pinterest? Do they still even require that? if so, I'll be happy to send you one. Just email me, mandybeez at gmail.
And random, did you know there's a Man Version of Pinterest?? weird.
