I've jumped on the Pinterest train. After hearing so much about it on the Getty Art Education listserv, I was piqued. . . But, truthfully, it was my sister's cajoling that got me to join.
When I went to register, I was put on a "waiting list." Now, honestly, I just think this "waiting list" stuff is just great PR. It gets you thinking, "Wow, this is so popular, I have to wait." I don't do waiting very well. Haha! Well, that is putting it mildly. Anyway, I had my sister "invite" me using my email address and I was able to register "immediately."
I was reading over on Mr. E's page about his love of Pinterest, too. I have to say, I find Pinterest very easy to use, very intuitive and just like Mr. E, I find it a great way to "Pin" projects I really want to do eventually. I also really like that it automatically embeds the URL of the item you "Pin," so if you end up doing the project a bajillion years later and have forgotten who to credit, you can easily find that.

So, darlings, are you Pinteresting? If so, please, please, please, add me a friend (name, Amy Johnson or artfulartsyamy and email firstname.lastname@example.org); I'd love to share with you and to see how you are using it. If you need an invite to Pinterest, just email me at artful.artsy.amy@gmail and I will get on it!
