So... I am now a total Pinterest addict. A friend of mine had requested that I join a few months ago and I have heard a lot of hype about it in recent weeks, but I didn't truly get it until I spent 30 minutes perusing boards. So picture a Facebook feed of images highlighting your interests... scrap-booking or art journaling, home decor, DIY gifts, educational crafts, etc... Instead of scouring magazines and clipping out ideas, simply scan through boards online or on a mobile device and virtually pin your favorites to your own board for future use.

I would first recommend curating your own board by re-pinning others ideas. This is what I have been doing for a few weeks now and it has kept me pining for time to complete all of these ingenious crafty ideas before the holidays. The two main boards of interest for me are "Home Projects" and "Homemade Gift Ideas". So many wonderfully crafty and inspiring ideas... so little time.
