For quite some time now I have been a Pinterest user. You can find me HERE. The inner geek sometimes makes me get frustrated wtih programs I use and how they could be better. So I contact companies with my suggestions. No - I'm not saying it was solely my idea (I'd like to think they did this just for me though.) but today Pinterest announced that you can finally search your own boards! Huzzah! My main frustration with Pinterest is now eliminated.

How do you do it? In the search bar up top enter the words you are searching for. When the results come up click on "Just my pins" in the upper left corner of the results. Suddenly that impossible to find Lime Chicken Enchilada recipe that you pinned and tried and liked and then lost among your pins got a whole lot easier to find!

Thanks Pinterest! Now if they could only program in my one last request: to be able to type the board name to find it in the drop down box when I'm pinning - that would make pinning a whole lot faster!

I kind of dropped of the end of the online universe lately. Life has been busy. I've been working really hard to get my home and life organized, spending a lot of time outside in my glorious yard with the kids, and working on crafts instead of blogging about them. One proud accomplishment was updating a website last month. A friend of mine wanted to freshen up her website. It is hosted on Weebly and they have lots of design options so I wasn't even required to code too much. The logo was re-designed by another company near her but I colored it in for the site. It was fun collaborating with her on this.
