One of the most popular D.I.Y. websites, http://www.pinterest.com is the go to site for a plethora of ideas. Featuring fashion, recipes, crafts, and much more- Pinterest has it all.

So what exactly is it?

Pinterest is basically a virtual pinboard! You can organize and share all the things you love and find on the web. You can then create your own boards to plan a wedding, decorate your home, and even organize your favorite family recipes. The best part about Pinterest is that you can browse other pinners’ boards and explore and discover new things.

Pinterest is slowly becoming an addictive site for some people, but in a good way. Students in the elementary education program can find teaching ideas, classroom decorations, and art projects to help get ready for their future teaching careers. Wedding ideas have also become a huge Pinterest staple. You can use Pinterest to find “save the date” photo ideas, wedding cakes, invitations, and bridal gowns; basically, you can use Pinterest to plan your entire wedding!

So what’s the best thing about Pinterest? It’s free! That’s right, all you have to do is sign up, and you can even use your Facebook account to do so.

What’s better than having access to tons of useful ideas at your disposal whenever you need it? With millions of new pins added every week, Pinterest is connecting people all over the world based on shared interests and tastes. Visit http://www.pinterest.com and start pinning!
