The Pinterest Project: Collections + Cupcakes

I'm basically on Pinterest all day... and Google Reader.. and Gchat. But that's for a different post. At various (aka frequent) times throughout the day at my job, I'll take a Pinterest break (aka pretending to work whilst pinning from tumblrs). It's healthy to take breaks, right? Pinterest is like my visual calisthenics...

Anyhoooo, are you on Pinterest? Everyone and their goldfish is joining Pinterest... but how do you use it? Lately I've heard a lot of people say they like the idea of Pinterest, but they aren't really sure what to do with it. While I use it to pin the images I want to use on this here blog, I can see how others might have a cool-but-what-do-I-do-with-you-Pinterest kind of attitude (longest hyphenation ever)...virtual pinboard? What if I've never even had a non-virtual pinboard? It's ok, you don't need one...

We know Pinterest is all about bookmarking your favorite internet finds... but what if we could bookmark/pin together? Ya know like a big virtual scrapbooking party. I remember my old college roommate would have scrapbooking parties and I wasn't cool enough (or maybe too cool) to be invited...

So here's what I propose: for the next month, let's pin to this board. In order to be added to the board as a contributor all you have to do is comment on one of the pins. Easy as pie... or cupcakes. This month's topic: collections and cupcakes, which means pin anything and everything collections or cupcake related. Annnnd the best pins will be featured on the blog each week - yay!

Pinners, let's do this.
