P-Plate Pinterest

I have officially been on Pinterest for about 5 seconds (OK, a week) but I have taken to it like a duck to water.  I find that my appetite for images is instatiable.  Hours can go by looking for the next strange or beautiful thing, brilliant idea or all of the above.  And not just on Pinterest either, I do rather well wasting time on Etsy and Flickr too.  (Wasn't it 9am about two minutes ago?!!)

Well I know what you mean - I started on pinterest last week. It's a bit of an overwhelming place where hours can just disappear. Love what you have so far!

Fantastic finds, Sandra!!
Oh I cannot get over the hand cookies :D Just brilliant!

Sandra Eterovic said...

Thanks Julianne and Erin -- I am glad that you like them. Yes, those hands are lovely but odd -- I wonder how that idea came about.....

You have such a lovely eye.
And agree, hand cookies are odd.....

Saskia said...

Yaaaay! Welcome to the most enjoyable time vacuum of them all. Off to check out your boards now...

PS. Love your pins Sandra. Look forward to seeing more. Pinterest is the ultimate irony – I spend so much time being 'inspired' there is no time left for creating.

Hello Jo and Saskia,
Thanks for the inspiration s far and I look forward to stealing more from your beautiful boards!!!!
Yes Saskia -- it IS the ultimate irony -- all that time spent gathering means there is no time left for creating....no motivation either, as you get the feeling that everything has been done already.....

Hi Evie,
That is absolutely going to have to be the course of action for me too from now on. I admire your discipline but I can see too that it is necessary!

Hope you are well!
