Default I've been pinned!

Wow! I went onto Pinterest this morning to see if I could find any examples of tea-folded Christmas trees as an ornament (as opposed to just 1 tree adhered to a card). When I put tea fold in the search bar, I was shocked to find one of my cards right there at the top!

Not really that big a deal, but it sure did make my morning to see that someone liked my card enough to put it on their Pinterest board!

If it wasn't for the fact that I am at work at the moment, I probably would have called a co-worker or two over to celebrate with me!

I've only recently started using Pinterest, and I agree, its a real boost when you see one of your cards pinned by someone!

I am happy for you! I am new to this Pinterest thing and was so excited when I saw something I made pinned. I was thrilled too!

Sorry, I didn't explain myself very well. I can get the pinterest code ok, but what do I have to do on here to actually add it? I tried adding it to my signature, (where my blog link is)but I got an error message saying there was too much in the box? Not sure if I'm doing something wrong, or I'm missing something, lol.

The Pinterest "button" is already standard here.
All your gallery items as well as psots have a bar published at the bottom (in gold/amber)
This includes a P for Pinterest (as well as twitter, facebook etc)

I understand your excitement about having one of your cards pinned. I don't post any of my work but I love to pin ideas and I am always pleased when someone repins my "pins". I feel like I have great taste!

When I added a link to my Pinterest boards, I clicked on my name. In the drop-down menu, I chose View Public Profile. From there, I chose the tab About Me. In that box, I wrote my brief statement and then http://pinterestdotcom/insert linkinfo.

Give that a try and let us know if you've still got a problem. I am very technology-challenged, and yet I was able to figure this out relatively painlessly, so I'm sure we can get it right for you!

You can see all of the pins from your site by putting in

OK, extremely red-faced person here
How did I not see the little buttons? I think that must mean I urgently need coffee (and my glasses).
Thanks everyone, especially for not pointing out I must be having a senior moment, rofl!

I don't see the buttons. But after the big redo here, I set my adblock to get rid of a lot of the junk that bugged me. So all of the buttons (facebook, twitter, etc) are invisible to me. They're dead to me. lol

Well, if you're having a senior moment, I don't know what the heck I'm having – I don't understand what exactly those buttons do for us. No offense to anyone here, but I don't see wanting to pin any snippets of our posts, no matter how witty or informative. Even though I've got my glasses on, it's not helping me to figure this out!
