As I mentioned last week, I’ve been enjoying Pinterest for bookmarking the different things that I find on the web, like Family Fun Ideas, Health Reminders, Things that Make Me Laugh. It’s unlike other bookmarking sites in that it is so visual and fun to look at! Plus, I find myself actually going back to the things that I’ve bookmarked, something I don’t really do with other systems.

To make Christmas planning easier for you and me both, I’ve created two pinboards:

  • Christmas in July archives – these are past posts here on LifeasMOM that offer solid ideas for planning all aspects of Christmas
  • Christmas Ideas – these are new finds that I want to try – either ideas that are specifically Christmas, or those that I want to tweak to make them Christmasy.

Having a picture to look at inspires me and helps in my planning, even if it’s just simmering in the far reaches of my brain.

Have you found great finds on Pinterest?

    I LOVE Pinterest! I’ve got a board for “gifts.” Since my hubby has no interest in Pinterest, I can add pics of gifts for Christmas, etc.

    I use Pinterest for ALL of my ideas. I have one for summer ideas and craft projects and home decor and party planning! That’s been the best use so far. I have to throw my sister’s bridal shower and it’s great for keeping all the visual ideas in one place.

  4. I think you read my mind, because I was JUST thinking of giving pinterest another try. i know there’s value in that web app, i just wanted to figure out what.

    I have been pinning like a crazy person and repinning from your boards. I’m planning to do a homemade Christmas this year – all hand made gifts (with a couple exceptions for my boys). I’ve gotten some fabulous ideas!

  6. Great idea!

  7. I love Pinterest. It’s such a great way to organize all those great ideas I run across. I’ve started organizing Christmas ideas as well.

    I have not used Pinterest yet but looking at your pinboards, I think I am hooked! Thanks so much for introducing this to me! 🙂

      @Carrie R., just make sure it doesn’t suck your time so much that you don’t implement all the good ideas you find! LOL

    Had never heard of this! Looks really cool!

  10. You know, I’ve been resisting pinterest because I’m afraid of wasting even MORE time on the computer (ha!) but planning for Christmas may be its perfect use. Thanks for all these great ideas, especially the Christmas ebook.

    I’m dying to make my own pinboards, but I’m on the “waiting list” for Pinterest! so sad…

  12. I adore Pinterest! Spend way too much time there and have boards for all kinds of things, especially homeschool.

  13. what exactly is required of me to get all this free space. Do they want all my private info etc.

      @sona, I signed up with my twitter account, so I don’t “think” it takes much personal info.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
