Let me show you around Pinterest...!
26 October 2012
Lots of dolls' house and miniatures fans are making the most of the new online moodboard called Pinterest.
At the Dolls House Emporium we're thrilled to see images of our products being shared by people around the world.
But it's about so much more than miniatures!
Let us take you around some of the highlights from people who also have miniatures as one of their hobbies.
Below you'll see the homepage if you want to 'follow' The Dolls House Emporium. Click on it and it'll take you right through for a browse.
But as you know, it’s somewhere people can assemble a collection of favourite images (with some written info if you like) from all around the web.
And that’s why it is great for hobbyists like us! You can keep everything from workouts to recipes to arts and crafts ideas all in one place!
Here's a wonderful button pumpkin idea, just in time for Hallowe'en. (Don't forget to click on the image to see the member's other 'pins', 'pinboards' and pictures.)
Once you have signed up all you need to do to add an image from a webpage to your online Pinterest scrapbook is click - and it's done!
The next two members have shown off some of their favourite places - ideal if you're looking for holiday ideas.
Some people use the space left for text to pass on some handy hints and tips. Tamara (click through below) shows us how to make a candle from an ordinary orange. Like she says - who knew?!
You can discover all shapes and sizes of dolls' house, and some wonderful settings to show them in.
Feeling crafty? It's one of the biggest areas at Pinterest. You'll find the hours slipping by as you browse for good ideas and re-pin them on your own boards for future reference.
Then there's the fashion brigade. Emma Jayne's posted a photo of her own nails, while Marsha's sharing tips on eye make-up.
Food is also important! You'll find recipes, images, hints, tips and pointers - as well as hundreds and hundreds of images of tasty-looking cakes to tickle your fancy.
