    I have had an account for a few months but I don't get it... I tried fooling around with it for an hour and didn't get what the fuss is all about. Someone enlighten me please? Same goes with Twitter... I must be a Facebook snob or something...

    Like JTMom, I'm addicted. It acts like your online bookmarks, but you can visualize it all on little boards. You can 'pin' any online images, and the link to the image. So let's say you see a recipe you'd like to try out, you can 'pin' the image of the dish on your recipe board. You can also search other people's boards for things such as 'blue christmas', and tons of images come up, and you can 'repin' some style ideas or craft ideas on your 'holiday' board. I 'pin' lots of DIY ideas and craft tutorials. I have boards for recipes, crafts, art inspiration, gifts, bathroom, bedroom, music, etc. Think of it like inspiration boards! It's just really helpful. I have used it for Halloween, crafternoons, meal ideas, and decorating. It's worth waiting for an invite.
    My musings about my children, my crafts and everything and anything else can be found on my blog.

    I enjoy it, except I've found a couple times the site is down which I find frustrating! I kept getting error 505 for a while! Or no pins available...not sure what that's about! I do enjoy cruising around for inspiration!

    I used it a lot during wedding planning. Not as much anymore, but I still check it out sometimes.

    I LOVE it! I'm finding all sorts of new recipes, crafts, decor inspiration, preschool activities, etc.

    Be warned, though, it is definitely addictive!

    Love it!
    And if you are interested in home decor, another great (similar concept) one is www.houzz.com.
    Invitation really seems to vary. I know ppl who had to wait weeks but I got mine the next day.
    Please always show kindness in your posts as the person receiving it may need it more than you will ever know.

    I love it. I describe it as visual bookmarks you share with your friends. If you're surfing around and find an idea you want to come back to you “pin it“ by putting the picture with a short description in a folder. Aka a cake recipe in your sweets folder. It can use facebook to connect with your friends who are already on Pinterst. Chances are friends will have similar interests. If you find something of theirs you like you “repin it“.

    I've found SO many great ideas!

    Yes there is a waiting list or you can get a friend to send you an invite.

    I am also addicted! My invite only took 45 minutes to come back to me. I love that all these people have done the research for me! I go on and find the best of what I'm looking for. My husband thinks the food and drink section is “food porn“ the way I ohh and ahh over it!
