Pinning Craze!

by Michelle Carter

So this past year, Pinterest has swept the nation.

Pinning has become one of the biggest pastimes and is becoming a big deal like Twitter and Facebook. People are getting ideas for future homes, design-it-yourself crafts, weddings, inspiring quotes and cool cars.

Here at Eastern, residents halls are being decorated with the newest Pinterest crafts and RAs are getting ideas for cool programs they can do with their residents.

The key to Pinterest is organization. Make sure your boards are organized with specific names so if you need to find something crafty, you can easily find it under your crafts board! Another key to Pinterest is you need to have motivation to actually do the things you pin. So if you are pinning a painted canvas then you should actually do it because first, it will make you feel good because you are artistic and second, it will look awesome on your wall in the residence hall!

Pinterest has been a great thing and it allows not-so-crafty people to become crafty. If you have not been invited to join Pinterest then you should probably get that invitation soon!

Happy pinning!
