Gordy wants to share our new fun!

Since Gordy is the Artist and Art Journalist he wants to tell you all about our latest  greatest “AMUSEMENT”… It is our Pinterest site (http://pinterest.com/botanicalbb/ ) We are just beginning but we are hooked! It is fun. It is helpful. It is interesting. It is a great way to find amazing new ideas. It is a great agent for sharing.

What is Pinterest you say? Well, according to the source itself of Pinterest:  “Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests….People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and share their favorite recipes. (We use to for { i.e. we “pin” } Design ideas, finding all sorts of great new ideas, things we want to “save” and to be able to find easily, & things we want to share!) A pin is an image added to Pinterest. A pin can be added from a website using the Pin It button, or you can upload images from your computer. Each pin added using the Pin It button links back to the site it came from….You can Add the PIN-IT button to your BookMark Bar…Once installed in your browser, the “Pin It” button lets you grab an image from any website and add it to one of your pinboards. When you pin from a website, the Pinterest team automatically grab the source link so we can credit the original creator.”

Pinterest says its MISSION is : “Our goal is to connect everyone in the world through the ‘things’ they find interesting. We think that a favorite book, toy, or recipe can reveal a common link between two people. With millions of new pins added every week, Pinterest is connecting people all over the world based on shared tastes and interests.” http://pinterest.com/about/

 “Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest, and other popular services like Instagram, Foursquare, Tumblr and Quora, are what former Pinterest designer Sahil Lavingia calls “self-expression engines.” Pinterest lets users express their creativity by providing an easy way to visually bookmark items they come across online.” -TechCrunch
