It was probably inevitable.
I could only resist it for so long.
The pull was so strong, the lure of the unknown, so tantalizing.
I have officially succumbed to Pinterest.
"Welcome to the vortex," said Julia, when I made my Facebook confession.
I have technically been on Pinterest for quite a while. I solicited an invitation (thanks, Rebecca!), and set up an account.
But there was a little voice in the back of my head saying, "Don't do it! Don't go there! You might get lost and never see the light of day again!"
In the same way that I just don't buy candy [most of the time]...as I have very little willpower, I kept myself off Pinterest, fearing a[nother] time drain.
I have been on for about a week, and so far, so good. To date I have 10 boards and 55 pins. I'm pinning only things I actually think I can do, like crafts with the girls, fun things in the kitchen, and recipes that I actually "approve" of the ingredients.
I don't feel like this is a "time suck"...maybe because my Facebook time is more limited these days, so overall it's a wash.
I think the bigger test will be, how many of my pins do I actually act upon.
So far, the only one I've executed are these yogurt drops...
...they were a huge hit as part of a "very special snack". [It's a long story, but our girls don't eat yogurt, so they were over the moon with 6 or 8 "drops".]
And I have plans over the next couple of days for some St. Patrick's Day-inspired fun in the kitchen and at the craft table.
Like most anything else, I think Pinterest will be a lot of fun for me...as long as I enjoy it in moderation. [Similarly, jelly beans are OK, as long as I don't eat a family-size bag in one sitting. Ahem.]
