Here's how Pinterest describes itself:
You would think this whole Virtual Pinboard thing wouldn't be such a big deal, or super-duper interesting, or flat out addictive. But it is. It really, really, really is.
Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard.Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. To get started, request an invite.
Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.
I love seeing things that others have pinned. Sometimes it's inspirational, sometimes it's all about new up 'do, sometimes it's a great outfit...but it's all interesting and the variety is what keeps me coming back for more. I also love the fact that so much of the pins are handmade-focused.

Whatever you are looking for, not looking for, didn't know you were looking for...it's all there.
BUT - before you go and sign up, know that you will whittle away countless hours pouring through all the good stuff, so...don't say I didn't warn you!!!
