    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Pinterest: The New Organizational Tool

Pinterest.  Ever heard of it?  If not, here’s the inside scoop on this new wonderful website.  Imagine you are getting married and are immersed in planning for the wedding (I realize some of you may have already experienced this, but bear with me!).  Anyways, you are working on figuring out all of the details, from centerpieces, to invitations, to reception favors and are beginning to feel super overwhelmed.  How do you organize all of your samples?  How do you show your wedding planner or family members your ideas?  Well, have no fear.  Pinterest is here!  This snazzy site allows the viewer to select images to “pin,” and saves them for your future reference.  You can then organize the different images that you pin into different categories and arrays so that all of your ideas are placed in one spot.  No loose papers, no fuss.

Of course, the site offers a whole lot more in terms of organization and planning than just weddings.  Many users create collages of images for different projects such as redecorating a home or apartment (again, all images in one place and tons to choose from to set up your design!), planning class projects or art designs, and even for storing recipes and cooking tips! 

What else is great about pinterest?  All of the images are free to “pin” and are easy to reopen whenever you like.  No fees (which makes this site awesome for students taking art classes and needing reference images!).  Also, the site is of course Facebook compatible.  So, if that awesome image you just had to pin is deemed worthy of sharing on the book, feel free to do so and show all of your friends your favorite interests.

Intrigued?  Give it a try.  http://pinterest.com
