I have recently started using Pinterest more and more. I’ll admit, when I joined, I really couldn’t see the point of it, but now I can spend hours on there finding and pinning ideas!
I am mainly using it at the moment to help me with ideas for kids parties (and adults!). I like to be able to bring a little something extra than just the entertainment to a party, so I am researching thoughts on decorations for specific party themes. I have also used it to create a “1940’s fashion” board, to help me improve the authenticity of my hair, makeup and clothes when I perform my vintage sets.
While creating these boards, it got me thinking of other ways you could use Pinterest. Here are a few of my thoughts:
- If you are organising a themed party, why not create a board with lots of images from that theme to send to your guests to give them ideas on what to wear!
- Create a board for you to look at when you are feeling down of all your favourite things, and pretty images.
- Create a “wish list” of things you’d like from various websites – Etsy, Amazon, individuals websites etc. (And then “accidentally” post the link to your friends around your birthday!)
I hope this post has maybe inspired you to use Pinterest a bit more, or if you’re already an avid Pinterest user, I’d love to hear what you use it for!
