Pinterest

For those of you not on pinterest, I HIGHLY recommend it! Highly! It can be a time suck, but honestly it's just like everything - it is what you make of it.
But what you will LOVE about it is the virtual online sort of "Favorite Places." You can pin anything on the Internet anywhere and then you'll have it. It has seriously revolutionized party planning - because you can pin a cake from one website and then pin table cloths from another and balloons from another and have one central picture board. It, I'm sure, has also revolutionized house decorating for the same reason. I've included a screen print of what I see when I log in. I've only just begun, but it is amazing!!


Last night I was laying in bed thinking about how I can better manage all the babies' diagnoses, medical info, etc. and it occurred to me I could pin the websites that I have found the most useful information. Then I'd have links to all the really great websites in one central location (right now, I've been saving emails with all the links). And Yes, I really do lay in bed thinking about organization and such. It's a curse. I also keep a post-it pad by my bed for all the things I think about and think about and think about... or shoot out of bed, thinking "OH!!! I need to photocopy that worksheet for tomorrow's class!!"

I know a lot of people have been hesitant to jump into it because it can be a "time suck," but honestly, if you don't use it as such - it won't become that. And really, saving stuff in a favorites places is always risky (I've had computers crash, favorites disappear etc.)

I did pin something personal, so if you want to repin it and add it to your own "Twin Ideas," feel free. Just click on the photo below and it will allow you to repin it.
