Heads up! On May 1, 2018, we'll update our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service to make them clearer and to address some new privacy laws in Europe. Click Accept to let us know you're okay with the updates. Learn more

So, here's the deal, you read the new policy and terms and if there's anything I MUST know, highlight it and email it to me. Hahahaha

Let's just see what's really happening in the world of Pinterest, please. Melanie Combs seems interested in my board "Memory / Tee Shirt Quilts." She has some very interesting boards, as well. While there aren't many pins yet, the one she calls techie monster is looking pretty promising.
