A LIttle Pinterest Request

I have been trying
to get a
since last Fall
after seeing things
like this.
I have sent in a
request several times
only to be told that
I would be
receiving an invite.
Sadly, so far,
that has not happened.

Now my understanding
is that someone that
is already a member
can invite others.
Is that how it works?
If so,
could someone
 send me
an invite?

I promise to keep
your identity a secret
will be looking for you...
and blaming
for contributing
to my addiction(s).

This is NOT one of
My Addictions
even though
I live in Wisconsin
(otherwise known as the
google image
Are you gagging yet?
I found THAT on Pinterest, too!;>)
Yes! I! Did!

I told MyHero I gave up
I gave up
I don't
I don't
I don't do
(Well, unless you
a drug)

I gave up

A little pinning
won't hurt....
Will it?

He thinks
is a pin.

Maybe I can throw
him off track
and keep him
in the garage
(so I can pin)
by offering him a
of his own.


Edited @ 6:25am
I have an invitiation.
Thanks, Lorraine.

If any of you have popped by
tell me what you
at Pinterest.
Any ideas where I should start?
your photo name

What? Its that hard to get an invite? Something must be off. I just asked for one and got it a few days later...maybe it was in your spam box? I have yet to succumb to the addiction but there are LOADS of amaizng images, and I can see how peopld could get addicted, such a great idea! Have fun...I would have happily invited you but see someone beat me to it. Happy pinning Diana!

Gina said...

Have fun! You'll be addicted like the rest of us in no time. I'm always pinning home decor, food, holidays or quotes.

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

Oh gosh, you'll love pinterest! It reminds me of the old days when I tore pictures out of magazines and put them in folders. Oh wait, I still do that too! Way more ideas than I'll ever be able to use, but it's still fun!

Pam Kessler said...

Oh, you could have a Starbucks board and a fat hairy guy board. You will seriously get lost on that site. I try to stay off of it if I don't have 4 hours to spend on it that day. I would send you an invite, but it looks like LDH already did.

Susie said...

Diana, Your post reminds of a day I had a gallbladder attack, at work. I said "you can't eat, drink, or have sex, what's the sense of living?!" My co-worker's husband said ,"There's always fishing ." So I said, "kill me now." Good luck on pinterest. Let me know how that works. I have seen it a couple times but know nothing girl. Smiles, Susie

I still am not on the Pinterest board member thing. I already spend to much time on this computer. All my family sees is the back of my head when they past by the office. But I want to be can't wait to see what you do.

Donna, The Decorated House said...

Strange world of computers and internet if they keep losing your invite! :) Have fun.
Hope you have a great weekend, and as always, thanks for stopping by.

Something Nice and Pretty said...

Well, Diane all I can say is be prepared to be addicted! I know I am but I love it and as I tell my husband "it keeps me out of trouble".
At first I didn't care for it than one day I started pinning and I haven't stopped since, my boards are for me so that I can go back when an idea pops in my head, to see what I had pinned to pertain to that idea. Go to my blog and you will see a, in red, Follow me on Pinterest then you can look at my boards and sort of see what it's all about...let me know so that I can follow you!
Have fun,

Marie said...

Ahhh, the world of Pinterest, it certainly is grand, this is one that is easy for me :) I would love for you to follow me and I you. Look me up under Mabel Montoya.

Gert said...

Nellie said...

Enjoyed your post, Diana, but I'm no help with Pinterest! xoxo

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Diana, I see you already got your invite! Get ready for a new's really fun.

Thank you for the sweet comment you left at Tina's blog about me. I appreciate your friendship.
xo, Sherry

Ruth Kelly said...

I am totally addicted to Pininterest. I can spend hours adding to my boards and pinning and re-pinning. I just joined, never had to get an invite.

Tete said...

I have not done this...yet. Rebecca does it all the time and has tried getting me to do it. So, if you would like to invite me...I have been saving pinning for the cold winter months and I think they are here, I would appreciate it.
I think you should start with starbucks...

Heaven's Walk said...'re gonna regret this, D!!! lolol! You're gonna spend the rest of your days in a Pinterest Coma like me and nothing will get done in your house. You'll have dust bunnies the size of a gorillas rolling around on your floors, mold growing in your frig, and the laundry pile will grow taller than your house. Don't say I didn't warn'ya!!!! HAHAHA!!!

xoxo laurie

Debby said...

I am a member and have only been on twice. Once to register and then this week. I keep getting followers and who knows what they are following. Maybe I will figure it out. I spend too much time blogging to really spend time there. Just saying......(((((HUGS)))))

Donna said...

Ok, now I am totally confused. I didn't know you needed an invite to join! I must be the last blogger who's not yet made it to Pinterest. I've been wanting to check it out, but now you've left me even MORE confused, so thanks!! Oh, and thanks also for the "eewwww" photo! I thought your state was all about the cheese!!

camp and cottage living said...

You know, you are the funniest lady out there in blogland! I literally laughed out loud when I read this post! But, please, do you have to make me ill with that beer gut? I know I'll have nightmares of that tonight!
I'm so glad you got invited to the party, even if you had to beg for an invitation-wink!
I love, love, love, pininterest and now I'll have one more to visit. That is if your not mad about the begging part, and don't ban me from your blog now!
I love the decorating, organizing, crafts, holiday ideas, household tips, (are you writing this down?).
I really am not too sure I want to see Mr. Beerbelly again however. But I'm sure I would love whatever you choose to share.
I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Marti said...

I was going to sent you an invite, but it looks like you are covered.

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

Have fun, and don't forget to come up for air!

Jane, Naples, Florida said...

I did not realize it was that hard
to get an invite! Wish I could help!

Laura said...

At the end of the day, I treat myself to pinterest. It is full of beautiful wonders and once you get the hang of it you will fall in love! It is such a creative place and on top of that - it is very relaxing to me for some reason. I guess it's because you see something, you pin it and share with others. No other work involved. It's even been a great source for posts - you can search for something and be amazed at what you will find!

Pamela said...

Oh I wish I had known I would have sent you one!!! I am totally addicted to Pinterest and love it more than blogging...why? No pressure!!!
Happy Pinning Diana!!

Sue said...

OMG that was a man's horribly hairy belly....very gross.
You wonder why there are so many children in the world with men like that in society....
You might want to try Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to get you your invite....

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Oh,no. I know where you will be a lot now.

Patty Patterson said...

I went to pinterest and couldn't find you - so I send an invite even thougn several others already had. Now follow me and I'll follow you back.

Sherry said...

I always enjoy reading your blog, so much humor...have fun with Pinterest...I haven't even visited it yet. (smile)

Sweet Tea said...

I enjoy the recipes, the home decor, and the seasonal craft ideas. These are all great starting places. You're gonna love it all!!

Donna said...

Hi Diana,

I've just opened myself an account, took less then a few hours after requesting from Pinterest. I have a couple of books or some such, so let's talk and figure out how to work this thing - everyone is talking about it!

Sorry scrolled down and saw the gut - gagged and came to the comments.


Holly said...

Well, isn't that something...wonder if the invite wasn't getting through. I hope your problem is solved now so that you TOO can have this WONDERFUL addiction. Can't wait to see you there, Diana.
