    People upload pictures, links, receipes and you can search by catergory so Christmas for example and any ones that interest you, you can Pin them to your board so you can select the best from other peoples and make your own board.

    It's very useful for homemade decorations ideas, layouts and food. Get on it Posy, it's very addictive.

    Hahah, thanks! I like to make a lot of my pressies, and I made a bunch of stuff on that board last year for food gift baskets I made. The white chocolate oreo bark is AMAZING. So so easy and it tastes incredible. The White choc raspberry thing really didn't work, the syrup ended up runny, maybe I did something wrong.

    Put up your Christmas board link when you start it!!!

    Posy it's great. Like an old fashioned picture scrapbook. You can just use it for pictures for inspiration or you can use it to keep your links to recipes etc organised. I use it a lot for different things- it's been a godsend for planning our wedding, both myself and my gf are on it so it's been cool to keep track of what we like and don't like out of each others tastes... fortunately we seem to overlap more than we differ! ;)

    I'm not sure if it's still invite only, if it is drop me a PM with your email address and I'll send an invite. That goes for anyone BTW.

    It's no longer invite only and there's an app freely available for it on the App store on iTunes.

    Actually the app is nearly better for re-pinning stuff, it's much less hassle than the PC site. At least I find it better.

    I use it like a vision board for anything you love or want to do. I am very visual and interested in way too many things, pinterest helps me focus and offers inspiration. :)

    :o Forgive me in advance, but my board might have a ;) teensy bit of re-pinning from Baby and Crumbles :cool:

    You won't regret the oreo bark. Not much of it made it into my gift baskets last year, shamefully... :o I will say, if you're making it, the lidl 'oreos' and cheap white choc does the trick brilliantly. You can make piles of it for cheap.

    We can follow other boards? :) Awesome! Will have to check that out... In the meantime, I made a christmassy (mix of stuff) pinterest, but it said it's a private board and no matter how much I click the 'go public' button, t'won't let me publicise it :mad: ...guess I will have to start over.

    That's weird. I thought you could make a private board public.

    Their help center says it's a malfunction they are working toward fixing.
