I never knew there was an actual term for all those pages I had been ripping out of magazines for years. I also didn't realize I wasn't the only one who did this. I was pretty serious about my tear sheets...I usually traveled with several magazines to read on those long flights I use to take and always came home with a folder full of magazine pages. I even filed them, filling a box with folders... *recipes*, *craft*, *garden* and so on.
My mom did it. Not long ago she brought me her file folders of (vintage) magazine pages (more recipes, crafts and garden ideas).
My friend Jen introduced me to the term...she even hosted a swap and started a flickr group.
I think of Pinterest as our modern day tear pages. Friends suggested I try it after I started having trouble tracking all my favorite links...and I LOVE IT! If you haven't joined yet, you may want to. If you have, let me know, you can find me here.
It's also fun seeing what things of mine people are pinning. Last years preschool project Big Leaf Printing seems to be the most popular.
It helps me see what boards my preschool projects are being pinned to because it leads to the discovery of other child friendly projects I may want to try with my preschoolers.
Since I'm talking about big leaf printing...Thank you to...
