My current new addiction online is Pintrest. If you haven't been there, and you have a life, you may not want to visit. It's a huge time suck! Because it's totally made of AWESOME! A friend described it as a "glossy magazine, but on the internet." I think that's fairly accurate. I've acquired some great ideas that I've actually used. It's mostly kids related stuff, that I've executed on; holiday food treats. These have been great because they're super easy & get a lot of bang for not much buck. There's quite a few jokes floating around about all the pinning that gets done, but no one actually executes on anything they see. I'm telling you now, that's not true.
My point is I spend some time on Pintrest, file that little fact away for now.
Also, I'm still very active w/my digital scrap booking. I even
went to what I would call a "users group" in Las Vegas in October. (AKA - SpragueFest)
Cranked out my yearly album before Christmas as usual. As you may have guessed, Pintest is a
great resource for different ideas, layouts, inspiration.
Still following me? Good.
you know, I collect quotes? You probably didn't because it's not something
you go around telling people. But I do. I love fonts & quotes. LOVE THEM!!
Pintrest has given me a huge medium to find and share new quotes. I have found my tribe of font & quote collectors. We enable each other on Pintrest! I
my love of digital graphics with my love for fonts & quotes. I
found an example of "XX Ways to Stay Creative" in my ongoing search for
new quotes. There are a few versions of this going around, thus the XX instead of a number. I thought
it would be a great thing to have to hang on the wall in the art
studio. So I made my own version in subway sign style. I let the girls
pick the color & printed it at Costco. (Good prices for poster
boards! And BTW, great quality. I print all my photos, scrapbook
pages, etc... there.) Then, I posted my finished digital file on Pintrest to
share. As of 1/9/12, it has been repinned almost 50x! I've included the file below.
(Easier to read then taking a pix of the one hanging in the studio.
Art Studio sounds way cooler than art room, don't you think?) I love that something I made and
love spoke to so many other people. The ways I put to be creative are, I think, very in-tune w/both my girls personalities. I'm thrilled that other people were inspired by it enough, that they wanted to save & share
it. It makes my heart happy.
Ok, carry on.
Little side note; Whenever I read it, the part that says, "Collaborate" & "Listen to New Music." In my brain, it is always sung as the Vanilla Ice song, "Stop! Collaborate & Listen!" (Now, you have the ear worm too. My work here is done.)
