How Pinteresting

I have succumbed to what I thought was the time-wasting madness but turns out to be more like the hypnotic relaxation. Yes, I am talking about Pinterest! I am not the kind of person who tacks physical pages to physical boards as a method of organization or inspiration, so I was reluctant to join that site. But if anyone had told me how lovely and QUIET it is on Pinterest, I would have joined sooner. There is an option for leaving comments, but most of the time, no one does so. You just silently view, pin, and repin things. It's like wandering through an art gallery: everyone maturely and quietly taking in the pretty pictures, and not filling the air (or rather, the screen) with snark and chatter. Did I mention I like how quiet it is?

Anyway, these are my Pinterest boards so far, several of which are related to Persephone's Orchard. For example, you can see locations used in the novel (Knossos on Crete, Mary's Peak in Oregon, and more), and ideas for casting, and pretty Hades/Persephone artwork I've found online.

If you have a Pinterest account, go ahead and follow me, and I'll be happy to follow you back. Keep in mind I have little idea what I'm doing over there so far. But Pinterest is quiet and pretty! And I like that!

I adore Pinterest! I'm someone who is there for the prettiness of it all. It's kind of a way of dreaming for me, 96 boards and counting :-) I'm here: http://pinterest.com/lorabounds/boards/

Love your boards! So much beautiful art. That's one of my favorite things about Pinterest so far: all the amazing art I'm discovering. Also, it's fascinating to see what kind of categories people choose to focus on. :) A new way of thinking and organizing my thoughts, for me. Pretty cool.
