I don't trust people that aren't on Pinterest.

Ok, so the blog post title isn't exactly true. But If you want me to say it, I do inwardly have a "You've got to be kidding me" moment when I hear that someone doesn't have a Pinterest account. Irrational and judgey? Maybe. Will it keep me from being your friend?  Heck no!  Especially if your one of those friends that likes to do all the cooking and potluck stuff for moms like me that go into convulsions when we see a snack or dinner sign-up genius email in our inbox. Cooking is not my gift.

I have a few reasons for loving Pinterest:
  1. I learn how to do stuff from cool people. I like learning. There are times when I see something on Pinterest and think, "That's brilliant, and that person was willing to share their talent so that others could be blessed!  Cool!"
  2. I save things for reference, which I do often whether it be a recipe or instructions or even to remind myself of how I did something on my own blog. Yes, I've actually consulted my past crafter self. 
  3. It makes me laugh. I'm telling you, memes never get old. 
  4. It's pretty. I like looking a pretty stuff!
So, yesterday I sat down and curated my boards. I've been putting it off for months because moving boards around on Pinterest is a bit tedious. Why is there no "alphabetize boards" function in Pinterest!?  I deleted some old boards and moved some pins around. Did you know you can make some boards secret?  Just tap on the board you wish to make secret, click on pencil icon at the top of the board which will open up the edit menu. Then just scroll down to the "Make Secret" option, and switch the toggle on.

My username for Pinterest is PrettifyUrLife.   You can check out my boards HERE.


  1. I love Pinterest! Actually, I'm addicted! Not to fond of all the changes though! I'm still trying to figure out how to move boards around on my iPad. Would you happen to know how to do it? Your Pinterest boards are amazing!

    1. Great question Nancie! I got my ipad and tried to figure it out too...with no success! It shouldn't bee this hard, am I right? My only suggestion is to move them using your laptop. I hope that Pinterest fixes this issue soon.

  2. I wish we could have SUB-Categories (crafts and foods INSIDE a particular board). My holiday boards have food, decor, gifts, etc all over!
