I love a good old-fashioned pinboard, with bits and pieces of this and that, all collected and held for future reference. But I'm bad at organising the one in my workroom. It's threatening to fall off the wall, actually, with everything I've tacked to it. Shown above is my latest, clean wall with just a few things to look at: some watercolour playings I did, as well as postcards and magazine cuttings too lovely to go into the recycling bin.
Recently I discovered Pinterest, which is an online tool for making and sharing such pinboards. I started playing around with my account last night and discovered that it can rather time-consuming, in a good way (though, that could be a reflection of my self-discipline more than anything.) I made three themed 'boards' which I'll use to file away lovely things I find on my internet travels. The next challenge is not to get too overwhelmed by all the images- sometimes i find myself feeling paralysed by all the goodness out there on internet. I know there are many other tools like this in use (tumblr, delicious, etc) but the simplicity of this one is especially appealing to me.
