The newest picture of our camp from Thursday.

(There has been a bit of a time warp here in form of a stomach flu. I lost a day. The kids started getting sick a week ago, one at a time. The Captain is staying strong - the only one!)

Have you heard of Pinterest, yet? Best invention since sliced bread:) Pinterest is a free website where you can store ideas, recipes and wish lists. You categorize your boards, and pin whatever you find online you'd like to save for future use. You can also follow other people's boards and discover new things that way. Pinterest has really helped me get more organized with my ideas.

My most useful boards are titled Camp, Homeschool, Tips & Tricks, and Recipes. I used to have various folders on my desktop where I kept recipes or pictures of ideas I'd like to use someday, but it is so much easier and better to just pin the idea, and then have one place online to go to.

This is a snapshot of my Camp Board. By clicking on the picture (on Pinterest) it will first make the picture larger, then clicking again will bring you to the original website where the picture was taken.

Online College
wrote an article on Homeschool and Pinterest this week. It was so helpful! Made me realize I haven't utilized Pinterest to its' fullest, yet. You can read the article here. Make sure to click on link #7 - when you click the image it will bring you back to my blog:)


New snow! Winter finally arrived to Maine!!

You can see my boards and pins here, and follow me on Pinterest. If you need an invitation to Pinterest, just send me an email and I will gladly send you the invite. Happy Pinning:)


  1. I'm not sure how much longer I can resist! I've been holding out. The last thing I need is find another online love. LOL

  2. Sharron, let me know if you'd like an invite:) I don't find myself addictive to Pinterest. If I come across an idea, I pin it, then since I'm logged in I might look at my 'feed' and pin a few more. I go days, sometimes weeks of not even logging in. I think:)

  3. yes i love pinterest, and I've even made or had made some of the ideas i have found's lots of fun to find all those ideas.

  4. Martha, thanks for following me Pinterest. I'm following you back:)

  5. Ihana tuo teidän koti. Niin kivalla paikalla ja kotoisan ja kauniin oloinen!
