WineGless Wed 10-Oct-12 09:20:47

Have just started following you overmydeadbody.

My initials are JH

Perfect timing!

Can someone please explain how they use Pinterest please? I don't really get it. I'm on it. Look occasionally. Is it just pictures or are there instructions/recipes/details of where to buy etc? Do you use just for inspiration?

Thank you!

Glitterkitty Here's mine! I'll follow anyone who wants to PM me or post their address. V nice to have pinterest MN buddies!

WineGless Wed 10-Oct-12 09:40:56

CiderwithBuda - there are usually links to blogs or recipes for instructions

I link directly off websites if its for a product (such as my Christmas wish list, which I have absolutely no chance of getting any of but it's nice to dream)

Have pmd you my Pinterest name and few others mners are following me with brilliant Christmas boards

NoillyPrat Wed 10-Oct-12 09:47:13

Thanks WineGless. Will have a look later. Another way to waste time and get nothing actually done!

Inneedofbrandy Wed 10-Oct-12 09:51:44

Followed LFH and Noilly smile

WineGless Wed 10-Oct-12 09:53:52

Absolutely Buda

Lovely ideas, never actually do any of it.

Pinterest plus poncetastic thread and a few Christmas mags, virtual perfect Christmas.

The reality will be dry turkey, family arguments and snoozing on the sofa after dinner ;)

WineGless Wed 10-Oct-12 09:55:13

Noillyprat, am following you

NoillyPrat Wed 10-Oct-12 10:17:14

Marking my place to snoop through all your boards tomorrow when I have a Computer! None of the links are working from my iPhone sad

buzzgirly Wed 10-Oct-12 22:47:27

I only discovered pinterest last year due to Mumsnet's Christmas boards. Thanks for all the links, will start looking at them all.

Here is my board, I have a few home made things on it which I planned to do until I realised I was rubbish at craft!

OpheliaBumps Wed 10-Oct-12 22:52:51

Onadiet I love your boards, have stolen loads of your non-christmas stuff, especially the chalk hair dye. DD has been asking for pink hair for months, now we can finally do it!

WineGless Thu 11-Oct-12 07:59:21

Wwvd - I have been loving your boards and shamelessly repinning!

DoubleMum Thu 11-Oct-12 08:51:50

Thanks everyone for putting up your boards, I've done lots of repinning and will spend a few happy evening having a really good look at everything. Wish I could do all of them!

WG, thank you! Tis the season for sharing, so repin without shame, and with my festive blessing! smile

Inneedofbrandy Thu 11-Oct-12 11:36:44

BerryLellow Thu 11-Oct-12 12:34:55

I think I'm following some of you already - but I don't know grin It gets confusing with RL names/ MN names!

My Christmas board is here

TigerFeet Thu 11-Oct-12 13:58:48

aerynsun Thu 11-Oct-12 21:01:51 here's my list, now itching to get pinning from everyone else's boards!

oohnewshoes Thu 11-Oct-12 21:12:53

This is me, I Have not visited pinterest in about 3 months so my Christmas board and other boards are quite neglected.

I thought I should share as I'm off to follow everyone who linked.

WineGless Thu 11-Oct-12 21:20:41

Am following you both- my reali life initials are JH

MummysHappyPills Thu 11-Oct-12 21:22:07

Following you both smile I'm missymee

AndiMac Thu 11-Oct-12 21:38:04

My Christmas board is here:

And what might be of interest is a board I have for table decorating. To be honest, this is one of those fantasy pinboards, as I consider having all the paperwork and junk off the table to a well-set table!

CagneyNLacey Thu 11-Oct-12 22:00:22

Love pinterest and have followed you for table inspo! that be me , not many christmas pins yet but im getting there! flaming nora i never get that right

EmBOOsa Thu 11-Oct-12 22:03:05
OpheliaBumps Thu 11-Oct-12 22:20:20

Oh I'm so jealous! We are off to visit the inlaws for the next 2 weeks so will be internetless, just as I've followed almost all of you on pinterest.

Looks like I'm going to have A lot of catching up to do when I get home grin

leo16 Fri 12-Oct-12 08:46:38

Love this, everyone has got such lovely pins. I'm still in need of more Christmas inspiration.

BerryLellow Fri 12-Oct-12 09:19:49

Pinterest is annoying when it tells you that x amount of people are following your board, you don't get to see individual notifications so you can follow back! Am working my way through slowly...

I spend too much time on there, especially with the new app!

WineGless Fri 12-Oct-12 10:11:38

Berrylellow I know what you mean. Am going to have to update the spreadsheet wink

EmBOOsa Fri 12-Oct-12 10:54:53

Berry I'm seeing some of the users who are following me on the Recent Activity section of my Pinterest, not all unfortunately!

I have found some wonderful pins following all of you!

I am loving all the sharing and caring here! smile

Have gained a few followers will follow back when i find the new people, there isnt much on mine at the minute.. please dont laugh at my stocking photos, i had never sown before last week and they are a work in progress!

WineGless Fri 12-Oct-12 19:28:55

Waiting, that's a brilliant striking. I am pretty rubbish at hand sewing. I lose patience after a while!

Aw thanks do told me I had dropped a stitch before, nearly killed him haha

Mine here And delighted to have some new boards to follow!

WineGless Sat 13-Oct-12 20:44:04

Ancient one,am following you. Initials JH

I've been busy on Pinterest... smile

WineGless Sat 13-Oct-12 21:45:59

I know wink


WineGless Sat 13-Oct-12 22:23:43

Don't stop btw- I love your pins

DoubleMum Sat 13-Oct-12 22:40:21

I've repinned loads, thankyou all, love Pinterest! I'm Possession on there BTW (long story).

Thanks, WG, will pin on! smile

I wish we could reorder our pins within our boards. I know it is something they are considering.

EmBOOsa Sat 13-Oct-12 23:10:20

That would be a useful feature, would definitely suit my slightly anal organisation technique!

Yeah, definitely! Or be able to divide a board into sections. Or columns!

EmBOOsa Sat 13-Oct-12 23:17:11

Oh hell yes! Sub-boards would be brilliant, would save me having 60+ boards

Note to self: How the bollocks did you end up with 60+ boards?!?!

WineGless Sat 13-Oct-12 23:34:05

Ooh yes.

My OCD tendencies are itching. I need to alphabeticise all my pins and sub sections sounds briliiant

Mine is here

I'm going to start looking through some of your pins now smile

stinkymice Sat 13-Oct-12 23:44:10

Just joined and enjoying filling my first board smile

Finally bagsied the computer so I can post an actual link smile

I'm dharmabumpkin on Pinterest too

I have followed heaps of you, will go through the rest tonight! Love the idea of splitting board into sections: decorations, gifts, food etc. Might have to do that soon, my Christmas board is getting packed!

Here is mine (I think)
I'm on my phone so not the best at links smile I'll go and look at everyones now smile

WineGless Sun 14-Oct-12 18:04:59

Wow thepigofhappiness your boards are fab. Love your crocheting

BerryLellow Mon 15-Oct-12 17:21:42

I'm slowly catching on to who are the MN followers as you repin the Christmas stuff grin not so much the bridal hair!

plus3 Mon 15-Oct-12 17:24:41

Marking place ..... Haven't quite got the hang of pinterest yet

juneybean Mon 15-Oct-12 18:43:08

I've changed the names of my boards as I have organised them into a few categories, so my links upthread now don't work.
My general board is here: and if you are interested, my others Xmas ones all start with A Star!

Ah got myself all confused, followed some peoples christmas boards and some all boards. some good ideas though!

Kveta Mon 15-Oct-12 21:30:16

ooh, anyone want to follow me?


WineGless Mon 15-Oct-12 22:41:59

Kveta, am following you

Well I think I am now following most of you. My initials are FS on there.

Haven't much pinned yet really.

Where do you all find the time?????

WineGless Mon 15-Oct-12 22:47:43

When I should be doing hundreds of other things which are all being ignored so that I can pin and MN wink

Following, should of been sewing and doing hair, have spent hours pinning instead... Hmm

dreamingofanallotment Tue 16-Oct-12 06:33:11

I've only recently discovered pinterest, but I'm thoroughly addicted now!

My Christmas board is here if anyone wants to look/follow:

I'm following lots of you too, so thank you for sharing! I'm the one with a bird house as my profile pic!

JazzyTheSnowman Tue 16-Oct-12 09:02:09

I have just shamelessly stolen all my favourites from all your boards...


EauRouge Tue 16-Oct-12 09:08:23

I haven't added much to mine this year, but here it is.

Loving all the boards. Feel free to follow mine: here

LoonyRationalist Tue 16-Oct-12 16:34:18

Here's my board again - deleted earlier link as it identified me - updated my pinterest now so it's safe again!!

Some great links here, I'll go through & add those of you I'm not already following smile

Think I am following everyone now- heres a tip- if you click on to 'followers' tab, you get a big page of everyone following you- you can really quickly click follow on them all!

Inneedofbrandy Tue 16-Oct-12 17:38:07

Just followed the above threads <yeey more ideas>

WineGless Tue 16-Oct-12 17:56:30

Think I'm following everyone now. It's tricky though regarding outing oneself. I don't want RL to know my MN nickname so can't put that!

Anyway am going to look for Christmas outfits later so will be pinning!

DustyMoth Tue 16-Oct-12 20:02:16

Have just joined pinterest after reading this thread! Why haven't I discovered it before? Going to follow those who've linked and here's mine but I have only just started so there isn't much yet.

Wine, so JH isn't your real name? I could really see you as a J!

Christmas outfits for yourself, or the DC? I have already got DS's outfits - they were large last year, and snug this year! smile He is getting new PJs of course - which I bought about 18 months ago in a bargainous TKMaxx sale! smile

Kveta Tue 16-Oct-12 21:08:07

I was following quite a few of you already it seems! thought it was only Berry who was filling up my 'following' page grin

WineGless Tue 16-Oct-12 22:40:15

No it is my real name! That's what I mean, am outed on MN (only to Pinterest fans though!)
I was considering changing my pinterest name to my Mn name.
It's all very confusing but yes that's me wink

Christmas outfits for all (except DH -he can find his own new shirt)

Heres mine Loving everyone Christmas boards. Have started following you all.

Ah! Nice to meet you! smile

I look forward to seeing the outfits. I have a posh black ball gown I never wore, too ott for Christmas Day with a toddler!? I could put a few festive red and green bows on it or something!

Am following you, wornout! <feels liks a stalker!>

WineGless Tue 16-Oct-12 22:58:54

Hi following you too - You have a pair of stalkers now....

kveta I was already following you Think your boards are great.

Hi fellow pinterest addicts, don't think I'm going to be getting to bed aytime soon, too busy looking at lovely lovely lovely Christmas things.

WineGless Tue 16-Oct-12 23:35:38

I've not had an early night for weeks! < bags under eyes>

I've changed to my mn name, don't think anyone stalks me enough to care. Some gorgeous stuff

ArtyFartyQueen Wed 17-Oct-12 11:09:55

I've changed my name too but I am sure I'm not interesting enough for anyone to be overly nosey!

i dont slag many people off on here, if someone searched me theyd find out im boring,like to sow and read and a detailed breakdown of lots of things im buying for christmas. hardly worth the effort of searching!

ShabbyChit Wed 17-Oct-12 11:29:16

I've changed my pinterest name to my MN name too...

I have a few boards on the go, (slightly mad about christmas!)

General christmas ideas
ideas to make christmas fun/special for kids
food gifts/hamper goodies

following, theres not much on mine at the minute, im too ill and tired today to carry on with my sewing keep getting ratty with it when it goes wrong!

qo Wed 17-Oct-12 11:47:00

I joined pinterest after reading this thread - thanks for giving me a new obsession!

Here's mine, but it's full of repins from this thread so you will have seen them all already grin

I've re-pinned and followed and all sorts of stuff, just new to pinterest, so thanks for all the inspiration!!

CagneyNLacey Wed 17-Oct-12 15:11:47

I've been adding stuff and following people when I get the chance, and dont use my mn name, if anyone was wondering who the random person following them is!

BerryLellow Wed 17-Oct-12 15:16:11

Your following page must be full of my crap lately kveta grin especially as I'm easily amused by the 'i don't always...' Memes <should get out more>

WhatWouldWitchesDo Wed 17-Oct-12 19:09:43

Not Christmassy, but I thought some of you might like it: Pinterest. smile

WineGless Wed 17-Oct-12 19:54:14

That is so me!

WhatWouldWitchesDo Wed 17-Oct-12 21:23:31

smile Me too! smile

CheerfulYank Wed 17-Oct-12 21:54:36

Marking my place!

Onadietcolabreak Wed 17-Oct-12 22:19:11

Off this thread for a few days, will add you all, when I get around to it grin some people have great Elf on the The Shelf boards, almost have enough ideas for the full 24 days smile

ShabbyChit Thu 18-Oct-12 09:19:51

Thanks for sharing that board, it's amazing! And so, so true! blush
I can't believe how easy it is to lose 2 hours on Pinterest!

WhatWouldWitchesDo Fri 19-Oct-12 10:15:12

Pleasure, Shabby! smile And yes, too true.

CheerfulYank Fri 19-Oct-12 20:06:11

This is mine if anyone's interested. I don't have much yet!

CheerfulYank Fri 19-Oct-12 20:10:26

Oooh, Shabby, I want to repin everything you have! I probably will. smile

JazzyTheSnowman Fri 19-Oct-12 20:10:32

This is mine!

I've got a load of repins from this thread though blush

WineGless Fri 19-Oct-12 20:15:03

Following you both, initials are JH

Think we are all just repinning each others stuff!

CheerfulYank Fri 19-Oct-12 20:54:47

Mine is mostly repins from here too!

I love Christmas...I love Mumsnet...getting a warm fuzzy feeling. grin

Ohhhh, in pinterest heaven and now have loads of Christmas ideas, I would love a huge flamboyant yet traditional Christmas this year. I'm loving this thread.

WineGless Sun 21-Oct-12 20:25:22

Is someone on here a little bit elf obsessed? wink

WhatWouldWitchesDo Sun 21-Oct-12 23:40:13

smile I can't help mysELF! smile

WhatWouldWitchesDo Sun 21-Oct-12 23:40:58

I looked up your Christmas fashion, btw, very lovely! Especially the KM dresses.

WhatWouldWitchesDo Sun 21-Oct-12 23:41:35

And I found lots of pretty things to jazz up my board titles! smile

WineGless Mon 22-Oct-12 07:55:32

Ooh how do you do that?
Would love the KM dress but can't afford

McKayz Mon 22-Oct-12 07:59:08

This is mine.

Some of the boards shared on here are amazing.

McKayz Mon 22-Oct-12 09:53:46

My Pinterest is now full of lovely Christmas ideas. It is lovely and makes me want to listen to Xmas music.

WhatWouldWitchesDo Mon 22-Oct-12 10:44:47

KM can be good for the sales. Maybe buy in January for next Christmas!

I find the sprinkly things on other people's boards, and cut and paste.

Just about to check out your bard, McKayz! I am getting a bit excited for Christmas, but I do try and contain myself until the first of December. Up until then, it is mainly planning and stuff!

McKayz Mon 22-Oct-12 10:56:40

We are about to get a Hobbycraft, opens in half term I think. It's going to cost me a fortune this christmas

Dosey Tue 23-Oct-12 06:56:09

Oh McKayz we are getting one too in the holidays I can't wait. I am loving your boards.

ShabbyChit Tue 23-Oct-12 09:10:47

CheerfulYank go ahead! Slightly blush about how many hours I have devoted to pinterest, and I only discovered it about 4 weeks ago!

ja9 Tue 23-Oct-12 13:01:10
flyoverthegoldenhill Tue 23-Oct-12 14:32:12

Stop the links - its toooooo much. My list is now far too long.
Now where do I get that Elf ?

WineGless Tue 23-Oct-12 14:38:37

Following you thanks ja9

Another one following you ja9. I am now in the middle of making a Christmas elf, I already have a woolly hat, scarf and Christmassy jumper from an old snowman in a sleigh electric ornament thing that broke the ideas I have seen are brilliant.

Hopefully Tue 23-Oct-12 18:40:11

Ooh, I am totally spending the evening stalking all your Pinterest boards grin

WineGless Tue 23-Oct-12 21:15:13

Stalk away- have you got mine? Can Pm you although I repin all the lovely things other people put on!

The elves are very scary is that what elf on a shelf looks like

ja9 Tue 23-Oct-12 22:38:45

Lol flyover....i feel the same...overwhelmed with ideas!

AndiMac Wed 24-Oct-12 09:43:01

Oh yes, I also have a board with ideas of gifts to make, if any of you are the home made Christmas type. And other assorted crafty things on another board, but these are the ones I think are nicest for presents.

CharminglyOdd Wed 24-Oct-12 21:12:14

Taking the plunge after lurking here for the best part of a week!

Present Ideas

I think a few of you are following me already... I'm certainly following several people smile

WineGless Thu 25-Oct-12 07:10:27

Hi yes I'm following you already but glad you've joined the thread!

flatmouse Thu 25-Oct-12 10:59:34

Not sure if i fully understand Pinterest, but i'm going to give it a go! Here's my attempt at a Christmas board. Mainly looking for easy craft ideas that i can do to make a PTA Christmas Fair grotto look fab. If you don't mind ladies, i shall nose at your boards and repin some ideas - I've made the 3D snowflakes a few times in various sizes and they are both easy and give the WOW effect!

WineGless Thu 25-Oct-12 14:56:22

Just started following you. I have quite a few crafty bits on my Christmas board but others have split their boards down into a craft one which might help.

Prepare to be sucked in and lose hours of your life

Nolda Thu 25-Oct-12 15:15:13

I'm now following lots of you, so many lovely ideas/things. I thought I'd better declare my stalkery presence! These are my boards if anyone is interested. I haven't got much in my Christmas one (yet). Hi Kayz!

McKayz Thu 25-Oct-12 19:01:13

Hello Nolda, I did wonder if it was you!! I love your Moomins board.

flyoverthegoldenhill Sun 28-Oct-12 11:10:56

We've just got a new hobbycraft too, look in your local papers as ours had a 20% discount voucher in.
<scurries off to check recycling bin>

WineGless Mon 29-Oct-12 23:11:38

Whatwouldvegans/witchesdo- your dedication to Pinterest is putting me to shameblush

WhatWouldWitchesDo Mon 29-Oct-12 23:19:04

grin I love Pinterest, I find it so useful for organising, and collecting ideas. Saves me having files on my own computer, and it's so lovely and visual. I've written notes on what I wanted to do for DS, which gifts and books when etc, but having Pinterest lets me file it all nicely! <addict>

WineGless Mon 29-Oct-12 23:25:18

So I noticed! Are you on a plc or an app? I'm struggling with the iPad app tbh for the organising part

WineGless Mon 29-Oct-12 23:25:38

PC I meant?

Mine isn't so organised but have been updating with my photos of stockings as and when and any other projects I undertake.

WhatWouldWitchesDo Tue 30-Oct-12 01:32:52

iPad. It's great for pinning, but to rearrange my boards I have to go on the PC.

WhatWouldWitchesDo Wed 31-Oct-12 12:52:15

I wish they'd hurry up and fix it so we can organise our boards, rearrange the pins within them. A simple and obvious feature, yes?

WineGless Fri 02-Nov-12 20:33:36

I'm not getting notifications of comments left. Dies anyone know how to change the settings? Is it on PC only?

WhatWouldWitchesDo Fri 02-Nov-12 20:49:55
WhatWouldWitchesDo Fri 02-Nov-12 20:51:08

P.S. I am on an iPad.

WineGless Fri 02-Nov-12 21:06:33

Thanks WWWD I have switched them all off and then back on and saved settings so will see what happens now

WhatWouldWitchesDo Fri 02-Nov-12 21:24:42

No worries! I will go comment on something and see if it works!

WineGless Fri 02-Nov-12 21:36:24

I got an email saying you had liked one and re pinned one but nothing about a comment? I presume I should get emails if people leave comments? Will contact Pinterest now... Am on a mission

WhatWouldWitchesDo Fri 02-Nov-12 21:49:43

Yes, I get notifications if I get comments. Would miss them otherwise.

WineGless Fri 02-Nov-12 22:05:41

I've emailed them so will wait for a reply, thanks for your help

WhatWouldWitchesDo Fri 02-Nov-12 22:16:04


Nici177 Sat 03-Nov-12 20:23:45

Have taken inspiration from you all and created my own board Am loving this, feel very Christmassy and actually quite motivated to get some stuff made.

WhatWouldWitchesDo Sun 04-Nov-12 00:35:09

Ooh, you have some lovely pins! smile

WineGless Sun 04-Nov-12 13:08:18

Am following you and repin bed, lovely xmas board

WhatWouldGuyFawkesDo Sun 04-Nov-12 19:43:37

Hi, Shinyshoes. I made the sugar glitter on your board tonight for a trial run. It works! smile

WineGless Sun 04-Nov-12 20:26:04

Thanks for the tip- I am going to try that too.
Have all the material now for my Christmas bunting. Scared to cut it in case I bugger it up!!

WhatWouldGuyFawkesDo Sun 04-Nov-12 20:39:29

Which material are you using? (as in pattern! I don't need not know if it is cotton or whatever!). I saw some nice Christmas bunting on Etsy, can't remember if I pinned it! Will check.

WineGless Sun 04-Nov-12 21:20:25

I will pin - cant remember all the names but they were from eBay

WhatWouldGuyFawkesDo Sun 04-Nov-12 21:29:59
WineGless Sun 04-Nov-12 21:34:04

That's very cute!

WineGless Sun 04-Nov-12 21:34:44

Mine will cost me more I think, but hoping it will last and I can hand it down to the Dc

Brightonite Sun 04-Nov-12 22:16:15

I have just lost two hours of my life smile

hurricanewyn Mon 05-Nov-12 08:43:33

Can I add my board? - have been lurking for a while and following everyone who has posted a link, but can add mine now


I didn't have an account originally, but flicking through everyone's I was bookmarking loads on my phone, until I decided to bite the bullet. I was originally trying to have a poncetastic board, but if I do everything I pinned my house will be like Santa's Grotto!

WhatWouldGuyFawkesDo Mon 05-Nov-12 18:16:58

Isn't it lovely! I made Happy Birthday bunting last year for DS, I think it probably cost me more by the time I'd bought the fabric! But it is nice that I made it with love! smile

Haha, Brightonite, though if you can see it as getting organised, it is really SAVING you hours in your lifetime!

wyn, am following you! You could have a poncetastic board and a less poncetastic board. I have a few Christmas boards myself!

hurricanewyn following you, great Christmas board

WineGless Mon 05-Nov-12 22:21:10

Hi hurricanewyn
<waves to fellow low carber>

WWGFD- loving your logic. I will tell DH this, it's really saving me time darling wink

hurricanewyn Tue 06-Nov-12 16:45:23

Why hello Wine - fancy seeing you all the way over here grin

I can't remember if anyone has pinned the decorated 'snowman' fridge pinned - I've seen it, but can't remember who's board it was on - but they have sets in Poundland that are giant fridge magnets for decorating the fridge. They have a snowman, a penguin & santa.

hurricanewyn Tue 06-Nov-12 16:52:51

A bit like this

WineGless Tue 06-Nov-12 18:40:21

I've got it on my board, me miss me!

<note to self to nip to poundland on way home>

< remembers she has integral fridge-boo>

<hides from Justine>

WhatWouldGuyFawkesDo Tue 06-Nov-12 20:11:27

I have that snowman fridge on my board too, but annoyingly we have an integrated fridge, boo, and the door is green. My fridge in my last house was pink. So we will have to move, and a plain white fridge will be on my essentials list! Not a problem for now; I can save that trick for anther Christmas when DS is a bit older.

Hi, Olivia! So where is/are your Pinterest board(s)?

WineGless Tue 06-Nov-12 22:47:33

Come on Olivia, share them with us. You know you want to!

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 07-Nov-12 00:18:54

When I have some Christmas stuff I will maybe share but atm is all house/garden. (renovating atm)

QueenMaeve Wed 07-Nov-12 12:33:11

Here's my board I'm off work with a bug so I am now going to spend this afternoon pinning grin

WhatWouldGuyFawkesDo Wed 07-Nov-12 13:22:57

Fair enough, Olivia. Looking forward to seeing your board when you are ready.

Following you, Queen. Get well soon! smile

fuzzpig Wed 07-Nov-12 15:56:51

Just marking place, I have no idea how Pinterest works but I want in!

Not even managing to sign up yet as all the nicknames I like are taken <wail>

Has anyone had the email about (lowers voice to whisper ) secret boards?

hurricanewyn Fri 09-Nov-12 18:23:36

No wornout - what's it about?

At the very bottom of your boards there is a new section where they have given everybody 3 secret boards. The idea is you can pin on these in private so no one unless invited can view them, ideal for a surprise pressie list or pinning ideas for a surprise party.

AndiMac Fri 09-Nov-12 19:57:18

Thanks for that wornout, I doubt I would have noticed for several months otherwise! I'm done Christmas shopping <smug face emoticon> but useful for future birthdays!

WineGless Fri 09-Nov-12 20:26:57

Yes was coming on to post! Great for secret presents and planning. Am pretty sorted with Christmas too but sure they will come in handy

ja9 Fri 09-Nov-12 20:28:30

I am DELIGHTED about the private boards!!

minicorrect Fri 16-Nov-12 07:08:00

Just found this thread having been awake since 4am panicking about Christmas, so anyone wondering about a strange new follower to your Christmas board, it's me! Please feel free to follow back!

GrannyRat Fri 23-Nov-12 20:10:33

Bit late to the party as I've just found this thread. I'm following many of your boards. mine i here if anyone is interested.

WineGless Fri 23-Nov-12 20:13:21

Evening Granny, just started following you

StantonLacy Fri 23-Nov-12 20:55:12

Well, having only just seen this thread I'm now following all of you for your lovely christmas boards...still haven't made my own yet but feeling all festive and revved up now!

Can't link to my boards as rl name and don't want to out myself but think trees (pic and name)

Fantastic boards, everyone, love love love pinterest grin

Found you, TreeGirl! smile

So I am liking having some private boards, but why would they restrict movement between them? Highly annoying!

GrannyRat Fri 23-Nov-12 21:47:34

Thank you Winegless love Pinterest almost as much as MN smile

MinnieBar Wed 28-Nov-12 11:45:03

Ooh, I am already following loads of you. I started a unofficial just for fun don't shoot me Olivia Mumsnet board and so I have liked anyone who follows it, and then given them access to pin onto it. Tis a community board <spreads love and christmassy goodwill>

TallulahTinsel Thu 13-Dec-12 09:35:22
