In other words I find myself in the kitchen looking through my pins for recipes on my phone. It is quite convenient since I don’t have to print a recipe or save recipe links to my desktop anymore. I absolutely love it! Also it’s image based sharing, which is very appealing to a visual person like myself.

So, in honor of the many things I have pinned and tried I would like to start a feature on my blog “For the Pin” where I share my Pin Wins and Pin Fails.

To start off these feature I will discuss a couple simple pins I’ve already implemented on a regular basis.
