I needed another new social addiction like I needed another hole in my dance tights!
But wait, you’ll reveal a dozen creative ways to fix or upcycle those tights so, it’s all good.
Pinterest is coveting made simple! It’s bookmarking made visual! I’m having fun with this glorious timesuck. Are you?
I joined thinking I’d use it only for personal reasons: crafts for the kids, recipes for the dinner table, DIY projects for my home. But, I couldn’t resist pinning those fantastic dance images (though I do try to only pin the ones with photographer and dancer credits). Then, I found some of the posts here at Dance Advantage were being pinned by readers, so I re-pinned those but… well, I needed a new board for that! And then, oh my gosh, there are such cute dancer gifts and crafts and artwork… oh wait, that’s another board. And wait, these pins are more for dancers… and these would help parents, and…
As usual, dance starts taking over everything in my life! But hey, it IS a significant part of my life. I’m enjoying having both friends and readers show up in my following feed and it’s fun sharing my interests and passions outside of dance!
So if you are out there pinning too, I want to officially invite you to…
- Place your Pinterest link in the comments if you’d like others to find and follow you.
- Find and follow any or all of my boards.
Here’s a sample of what you’ll find there:
