10 Signs That You Are a Pinterest Addict

pinterest addictYou know you have a Pinterest addiction when you post a drawing about Pinterest addicts.

Let’s talk about your Pinterest addiction. Yes, Pinterest addicts, I am talking to You.

So this Pinterest site that I talked about – well it’s more than a site – it’s now a lifestyle. Well my husband calls it my Pinterest addiction.

Pinterest has grown by leaps and bounds and is sucking people in turning them into pinning fools.

Pinterest Addiction: Are You Addicted to Pinterest?

Here are 10 Signs That You Are a Pinterest Addict:

1. Your grocery list is created from recipes you have pinned on Pinterest.

Confession. I can’t tell you how many miscellaneous grocery items my pantry now stores of recipes I intended to make but have yet to. Homemade granola – I will make you!

2. You have told at least 5 people about your latest Pinterest project and then told them YOU HAVE TO GET ON THIS THING.

My poor next door neighbor and friend Julie. I know they are both like SHUT UP about PINTEREST, but people – you don’t understand the greatness of this site.

3. Your husband now asks after you make something fabulous for dinner or dessert – did you find this on Pinterest?

It’s better than “what is Pinterest again?”.  Yes, I had to sit my husband down and show him. He wasn’t too amused but he hasn’t been complaining about those yummy meals either! (My husband has joined Pinterest!)

4. You wrestle 4 kids into Hobby Lobby (or a craft store) just to get that much needed yarn for this wreath you pinned for fall.

No comment on this one. :)

5. Pinterest makes you secretly feel like Martha Stewart, minus the bad hair cut.

Oh Martha.

6. You have tried to pull off a Pinterest recipe as your own. Oh come on, you know you have.

Again, no comment.

7. A day hasn’t gone by in the last week without mentioning the word Pinterest.

Guilty as charged *pinterest*.

8. Pinterest has cost you more money than you care to admit.

If I could just finish all of the projects I started it would be worth every penny!

9. Your non-Pinterest friends look at you like you are a freak when you talk about your latest “food in a jar” find.

:) See #2

10. You have spent more than 3 hours in 1 sitting pinning because you JUST CAN NOT STOP.

3 hours pssh.. I feel like maternity leave when not caring for baby has been sucked in by this site. But I’m not complaining.

11. You REPIN this post 

Thanks for all of the likes and repins on this! Repin if you too are a Pinterest addict! (it’s okay, there are millions of us – now)
Pin It

    Sheepishly, “My name is Gigi Randall and I am a Pinterest  addict.” There I said it. 

    In fact, I just got back from buying a jacket to create an outfit I found on Pinterest. I also bought 2 more letters for the fabulous “Home Sweet Home” wall art. I also bought a package of 3 canvases on which to “Mod Podge” black and white photos printed on vellum….

    Pinterest leads to self-discovery. When you look at everything you picked to pin, you see continuity and can figure out your style. Me? Jeans, jackets, scarves, punches of color. A little whimsey and color in every room. More of a feeling than a look.

    See? Time spent on Pinterest is never a waste…..that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. :)

    Lol so true! You forgot to include, you stay up later than your husband multiple times a week due to pinterest. Oh and on the waiting for n invite, for 12 hrs I knew what it was like to be a crack addict – I was literally dieting for an invite! Plus thnx to pinterest I’ve started a blog, so the combo of the two is practically a full time job! http://Www.thnxpinterest.com

    It may be above fifty years from the moment when Kohl’s shopping centers began and also the passage of your energy they’ve already widened
    significantly and also at present have an overabundance of
    than 1000 stores. You are able to use the specific coupon to get Kohl also as preserve many money.

    I sometimes personally take hours to choose my best dishes even though I have a brand in mind.
