I Heart Pinterest

I started this blog to store images, then it grew to what it is today. Then I opened a Tumblr account which is very nice and I love it but it still was a bit of a hassle to upload, add url, tag etc etc. But then Pinterest came AND made my day. It didn't work for me for a while, and I was really frustrated until I emailed them and they answered within minutes telling me that I needed to update my Safari browser. I did and it now works wonders! It's THE way to store images, create boards, get inspired by others, like and repin. You definitely need to try it, let me know if you want an invite I have some and I'd love to share the joy.

  20. Sounds great! I'd definitely like to try it.

    P.S. You asked what team I would be supporting now...I've always liked Argentina and wouldn't be upset if a team like Spain or Holland were to take it, or even an underdog like Ghana or Uruguay.

  24. Ohhh, I would love an invite! I've been looking for something like this, having to copy/paste all the images into Photoshop to create boards has been such a hassle. I'm not sure what you need for an invite, but:
