Curated: Candy CoatedJanuary 29, 2014
I'm weird about the way I used Pinterest. There's almost a ritual about it. I don't like to be one of those people that become really pin-happy and just pin anything and everything that strikes their fancy. Though I do pin a fair amount, I try to really make it count somehow. Usually, when I'm on Pinterest it's bedtime and usually I'm just using it as tool to distract myself until I feel sleepy enough to get to sleep. Basically, in my book, this is no time to be pinning anything that's not a sure thing.
So, usually when I'm scrolling through my feed, I'll hit the "like" button over the "pin" button 9 times out of 10. Liking the pin/image gives me a way to go back and view it later which is handy (and really speeds up the time it takes me to browse through my feed). Once I go back to the pin/image, I'll either categorize it and pin it onto it's appropriate board, decide it doesn't really have a place and keep it as a "like," or delete it because it wasn't all it was cracked up to be anyways.
I really like my system and sometimes when I'm going back through my "likes" I find images and pins that have a similar feel to them, whether it's the content or the color scheme. The pins/images just go together somehow even though I never really meant for them to. It's a great eye opener as to what grabs my attention and inspires me at a glance!
With all that being said, I thought today I would share some recent pins that I've "liked" in the past week or two. Apparently, this week I'm all about bright, candy colored objects and things. It all has a very sweet and festive feel to it, which is nice from the clean and simple modernity I usually find myself drawn too. I like the bits of infused whimsy and the way I feel when I look at all of these images together. It feels likes fun to me.
