Pinning Around Your Home With GlueArts & Pinterest


So tell us...how often to you find yourself looking through catalogs for ideas for how to decorate your home?

Ever torn out a page or placed it into a "special" folder for future ideas?

That's just what Pinterest is! Only instead of tearing pages out of books and magazines...your "pinning" them to your wall.

Today Designers Andrea Budjack and Lesley Landgon found images on Pinterest that inspired them to create a pillow based off a color scheme and a beautiful card based off an amazing kitchen.

Lesley commented that the colors, mixed metals and light inspired her card. What inspires you??

  1. As you can see, I haven't used Pinterest much- I'm afraid of how much it would suck me in and I already spend too much time online. However, you'll notice that GA is 3/4 of what I've pinned. :) http://pinterest.com/jgerwigdively/
