Pinterest, Interest, and Curiosity

It's all Sarah's fault. My granddaughter moved in with me and introduced me to her favorite new site, Pinterest, and because of Sarah, I HAD to join.

When she's not taking care of Ayla (my great granddaugher) or entertaining Ayla, Sarah spends most of her computer time on Pinterest. So I joined Pinterest because she wouldn't stop talking about it. Just kidding. I joined it mostly for craft ideas, but then I decided that what I could also use it for was to post links to my blogs and articles.

Pinterest reminds me of a Vision Board, but instead of being displayed on your home wall, it appears in cyberspace for everybody to see. I've only just begun, but I'm already looking forward to posting more items. I used to find things online that I just HAD to save or bookmark, and then, after I had all my bookmarks firmly in place, my computer decided to visit the land of the dead one day – I lost all my bookmarks.

But now, when I find something appealing, I can post it on my Pinterest page. What's fascinating to me about Pinterest is that it appeals to my voyeuristic curiosities about what interests other people and what is important to other people. It allows me to step inside their space and take a look around. Pinterest can be inspiring, comedic, thought provoking, and FUN.

Scentsy is Scentsational!

When I started getting barraged with requests to "TRY SCENTSY!" and, "HOST A SCENTSY PARTY!" and "OMG! You should try this stuff!" I balked. NOTHING smells THAT good. NOTHING!

And then I forgot about it.

Until last week. My granddaughter and my great granddaughter moved in with me temporarily and when I walked into my granddaughter's room, I was transported to a time when I was in the warm and loving home of my long departed Auntie Alice and Auntie Margaret. The fragrance was so immediately detectible, but not so overwhelming it would kick my asthma into gear, that I never wanted to leave my granddaughter's room.

"What is that?" I asked.

She casually responded, "Scentsy." And I went crazy on her. "OMG! I've never smelled anything THAT good – EVER! It reminds me of time spent with my great aunts when I was a child. It smells like their apartment! This is sensational!"

The fragrance was called, Autumn Sunset, and it was made by Scentsy. I now know why everyone is so taken with that product. All the other scents are amazing too.

Way to go, Scentsy! Way to go!
