Jenny Trapp, You Rock!

Pretty in Green!

One of my newest obsessions is the website Pinterest.  It allows you to create virtual pin boards, or vision boards for collecting, categorizing, and curating images and ideas from various websites.  It’s a little daunting to get started with, but after you jump right in, it can become a little compulsive if you’re not careful.  I love it because it allows me to collect really cool shoes, without losing room in my closet or dream about dresses for occasions that have not come up...yet...

One of my favorite pinners, is a woman I came across when I first started on the site.  I fell in love with almost everything she discovered.  Recipes, clothing, shoes, buddhas, belly dancers, you name it…she’s got it covered.  In fact, I had to ‘unfollow’ many of her boards because she is so prolific.  If I didn’t, I would open up the site and it would 100% Jenny, all the time.

Now I’m not complaining because she has great taste, and picks really interesting images, and has a great eye for a variety of images and styles that appeal to me.  She is also wonderful at categorizing everything she finds.  Currently she has over 33,000 ‘pins’ on her page in 72 categories, or boards as they are called.  How do I know this?  Well Ms. Jenny, I’ve been watching you…in fact sometimes I love to just wander around your pages for my own creative inspiration.  If you’re new to the site and want to see how a pro collects images, you should check her out.  You don't have to worry about getting lost on the site, you can just get lost amid all the prettiness she's already picked out!
