Can We Peak Your Pinterest?

We're so excited to let you know about a new feature we've added to our website class listings... a Pin It button for project photos! Now you can pin all your favorite classes to Pinterest for your own boards... and you can help us spread the love... all at the same time!

Here's how it works... when you're on the workshop description page, like the one above, simply click on a photo...

The photo will pop up as a larger image... and in the bottom left-hand corner, you'll see the Pin It button...

Click on the button to add it to your collection of pinboard interests...

And a dialog box will come up that looks like this. Underneath the photo you can add any pertinent information such as... the instructor's name, the class name, the retreat name, location and dates... and any other pertinent info like what type of workshop it is... journaling, art doll, jewelry making, painting, etc. Then just pick the Pinterest board you want to add it to (like, Classes I Want To Take!) and voila! You've got a visual reminder of all the classes you like.

If you are not yet familiar with Pinterest... you should definitely check it out and then join! With a name derived from a "pinboard" of "interests" this site lives up to and exceeds the idea of a vision board. It's the one place in this world of social media that is pure inspiration. And it's so much bigger than that cork board over your desk. You can Pin up an unlimited amount of wishes and dreams of all shapes and sizes! If you consider yourself someone who loves mixed media art and attending retreats to increase your creative skills and learn new techniques... Pinterest can be one of the most valuable tools in your art box!

Happy Pinning!!
