Coconutty Sun 11-Aug-13 20:42:14

Slainte Sun 11-Aug-13 21:12:40

Flobbadobs Mon 12-Aug-13 12:44:53

MrsHende Mon 12-Aug-13 13:02:35

lunar1 Sat 17-Aug-13 13:21:26

Never heard of pintrest, what's it all about if someone doesn't mind explaining?

pinterest is a form of social network where you can create boards to add and share pictures to do with pretty much anything so perfect for getting ideas and recipes for christmas. you can also link to web pages/blogs which may contain ideas or instructions.

scaryg Sat 17-Aug-13 13:53:46

I've got a couple of Christmas boards from last year, including an elf on the shelf one.

lunar1 Sat 17-Aug-13 14:21:08

Thanks for the explanation, I'll have to tale a look tonight when the boys are sleeping.

Elainey1609 Sat 17-Aug-13 21:55:03

Ok you have all sparked up my interest
Never heard of this before
Just signed up lets see if I can get it figured out

newtonupontheheath Sat 17-Aug-13 22:04:57

I loved this last year. Found some fab people to follow, de-Americanified (real word) my newsfeed too. Will try to add a few people, if thats ok...

Here is me. I haven't started a new board for this year but will be adding to it:

Mrs Roodurmun

<outs self>

Elainey1609 Sat 17-Aug-13 22:15:10

Ok still haven't figured this out but at least I know what my username is now lol
Add me

ooooh Christmas pinboards - loverly

Mine is

MadeOfStarDust Sun 18-Aug-13 21:20:05

nooooooooooooooooo - be careful folks..... some of those links have names in! my pinterest is my real life name because some of my business is done through people seeing pins of my designs!! but I wouldn't want customers to know the stuff I said on mumsnet (too much poo and cake)!!

IHeartIona Sun 18-Aug-13 21:36:37

Good point, will change my Pinterest name


Xmas food

General Xmas poncery

Oooh it must be nearly time for the poncetastic Christmas thread! grin

Link fail sorry

I love everyone's boards at Christmas!

Yay I love Pinterest sharing! here's mine. Off to trawl the thread now smile

Zeeky Wed 21-Aug-13 18:25:23

Here you go folks - that's me outed too!

I think quite of you are already following me from last year & I'm already following you too!

Some days Pinterest just seems to swallow me up!

Zeeky you have some fab stuff on there - I was following you last year!

iloveholidays Wed 21-Aug-13 19:32:36

Oh dear, I think I've just worked out how to use Pinterest... Think this might swallow up my time!!! I set up an account last year but didn't really get anywhere.

I'm going to pinch a lot of your ideas to get started and once I'm sorted I'll link on here.

Very excited!!! smile

sarber Wed 21-Aug-13 19:48:13

heres mine....

two of my favourite things.. Pinterest and Christmas smile
Think thats my evening eaten up looking at all your broads smile

Iloveholidays yup prepare to have hours of your life swallowed up!

iloveholidays Wed 21-Aug-13 20:51:42

Well my evening has already been taken up smile loving it though smile

Fab isn't it!
I'm still on my camping boards for now though so not looked for any new Xmas stuff.

TheHuffAndPuffALot Wed 21-Aug-13 21:51:55

Haven't had a chance to look through all yours yet, but I will tomorrow. Some great ideas on the links I've followed so far though - thank you.

Here's my link (I'm hoping, this is my first ever attempt!)

My board

Zeeky Thu 22-Aug-13 15:44:40

I think I have pinned every possible Christmas pin in existence!!! And you lot are busy re-pinning them all!

I think I may need to do a little sorting of pins & re-categorising or else I will never find anything!!

JogOnKitty Fri 23-Aug-13 13:00:57

Hi! Can I join in please? Very addicted to pinterest and currently pinning anything to do with Halloween and Christmas, though I could also do with doing some proper organising of pins. grin
Im foxeeroxeebee on pinterest.

JogOnKitty Fri 23-Aug-13 13:17:09

Well iv gone on a mad stalking following spree and going to spend the afternoon looking for Christmas inspiration!!
<giddy emoticon>

iloveholidays Fri 23-Aug-13 13:31:28

I'm new to pinterest. I've followed lots of people... how do you go back to their boards (without following your links on mumsnet?) grin

FranklymydearIdontgiveadamn Fri 23-Aug-13 13:34:55

Hello! here are mine I've tried to organise my Christmas stuff better into craft/childrenscrafts/food/decor as last year I had hundreds of christmas pins. Will check all yours now

mrsdinklage Fri 23-Aug-13 14:59:44

Frankly - I love your boards - I just got caught up in the fairy garden and your gardening board.

MortifiedAdams Fri 23-Aug-13 15:05:57

Ive added you all - not sure how to link from the App!

Shinyshoes1 Fri 23-Aug-13 15:10:21

I think a few of u are following me from last year

Here's mine

iloveholidays Fri 23-Aug-13 21:43:58

Is there a way of easily moving pins around different boards? I'm tempted to split my Christmas down into food, gifts, crafts and decorations.

Thanks, new to all this and trying to work my way round.


iloveholidays Fri 23-Aug-13 21:45:03

Here's mine by the way... Still a work in progress mind...

IHeartIona Fri 23-Aug-13 22:31:43

Ilove, you need to click on each pin, press Edit then you can move it to a different board. I don't think you can do it any other way, though someone may know better!

IHeartIona Fri 23-Aug-13 22:32:59

Ah I followed you earlier when you repinned some of my pins! :-)

iloveholidays Sat 24-Aug-13 06:31:43

thank you. I've only really repinned others so far but want to split it out a bit then can actually plan what I want to do over the build up. first year at home this year so want to make it special.

Thank you

Mckayz Sat 24-Aug-13 06:53:15

I need to rearrange some of my boards. It's hard to find things.

JogOnKitty Sat 24-Aug-13 06:59:50

So yesterday was mainly spent looking at everyones fab pins!
Did anyone have a go at any of the diy gift/decor ideas last year?
Did they work?

have followed a few of you and think you have me grin

iloveholidays Sat 24-Aug-13 08:49:24

yes I need to find some time to go through it all and rearrange. There are some great ideas on there x

FranklymydearIdontgiveadamn Sat 24-Aug-13 10:52:39

Thanks mrsdinkage. I'm a wee bit addicted to pinning!

FranklymydearIdontgiveadamn Sat 24-Aug-13 10:53:31
