Very {P}interesting, Indeed

an amazing little book!



Last week I was excited to get a copy of the new ebooklet, “Pinterpretation” from Stephanie Bryant and Holley Gerth (I’m a huge fan of both of these encouraging ladies, and reviewed Holley’s book “You’re Already Amazing” this spring). This week the ladies have challenged those of us who’ve already read the book to tell what it helped us discover about ourselves through our Pinterest Boards.

Frankly, I was shocked by what I found.

Though I’m very visual and just LOVE doing image searches and the like when I’m online, I don’t spend a whole lot of time on Pinterest. I have found it to be such a time-sucker for me!

But when this book promised to guide me through my Pinboards to see what my pins revealed about me, I danced right over to Pinterest and logged in. A productive reason to visit one of my happy places online?Yehaw!!!

It didn’t take long, going back and forth between the cute little ebook and my boards for a realization to come to me.

I love fashion.

25% of my boards are fashion related. I absolutely adore my pin board of outfits to inspire me, hairstyles I plan to try, and make-up ideas. Oh, and jewelry. Oh, my.

Here on my pinboards my passion for fashion is very obvious, although in real life, I tend to feel ashamed and insecure about my love of all things aesthetic. But there it was on my boards–plain as day.

Realization produced validation…

…and with it the knowledge that I’m going to be different because of this little book. I am going to get over my fears about this part of me, and embrace this passion. I’m not sure how all this will play out, but I know it does mean I will finally come ‘out of the wardrobe’ and commence to tell you about my own fashion journey in a series of upcoming posts. (because it’s a journey we all are on, right?)

Meanwhile, if you’re on Pinterest, I’m sure you’ll enjoy the questions and perspective Stephanie and Holley will bring to your pinboards–and your life–with Pinterpretation.(It’s only 99 cents!)

Who knows what you may discover?

    Trina, this is so fascinating. I haven’t gone through your boards, but I would have never guessed. I’m so glad that you feel free to embrace that part of you. How liberating to know that a passion in you has been let loose!

    I loved going through mine and was challenged to make some changes in how I do dome things as well. Such a fun little book!

    I am a bit envious of people who enjoy Pinterest. I can see how it could work so well to organize stuff on line–but I pretty much gave up on it long ago. My problem is that spending more than a few minutes on it just sucks the energy out of me and makes me want to run screaming back to a little cabin in the woods where I don’t have to deal with stuff and more stuff. (Kind of the way I feel when I have to go shopping for anything more complex than groceries!) In any case, I am looking forward your fashion posts…because goodness knows, I need to be inspired in that area!
