*Invitation is for Halloween decoration only. As much as we’d love to have you drop by OrangeYouGlad on the 31st, we will all be out haunting other creepy locales. We wish you a wonderfully spine-chilling Halloween filled with lots of spooky tricks and tasty treats.
Seriously I love Pinterest.
I’m not the most active pinner, but of all the social media tools, Pinterest is the one that most successfully prompts me to action: from kid’s crafts to recipes to hair dos to wardrobe purchasing. I’m not just collecting, I’m doing.
Perhaps it’s because for the most part pins serve as a vote for a product, idea, concept, or service from another member of the community and not from the source itself (in theory…). I like that by pinning I’m able to say “I dig your stuff” to the original creator while passing the good word along to my friends.
I’m sure we’ll start to see more and more sponsored pins, or clearly promotional pins. But for the time being I enjoy the unsolicited endorsement vibe of the folks I’ve chosen to follow.
For work it’s replaced Google image search as my go-to inspiration. I find that pinned images are better taken – Pinterest serves as a lesson in the power of engaging photography – and better cataloged. And if I’ve found one object of interest, like “Art Deco Posters,” I’ll likely find more
Additionally, there are some wonderfully addicted pinners out there whose curated boards I visit frequently: (Andrew Kolb - Illustration, Seamless Creative – Design, Joy Cho – Lovely things enthusiast). But more on them in the next post…
For today’s Pinterest Love post, I thought I’d share a pinboard from each of the folks here at OYG.
Buying gifts for Deanna has never been easier – especially if you know where to find this pinboard AND you’ve recently knocked over a bank. Her last 10 pins or so are showing clear preference for black+tans this fall.
We’d all like to see Matt wearing this bowtie and a yellow poncho. Infact he just has to so his yellow boots (pinned and purchased!) don’t get lonely.
“Where is the imaginary house?” One might ask.
“Its a Loftsion* on the Queens Francuador Riviera**” Veronica might answer. “To get there you catch the take the train from the 9 3/4 platform. IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN ZOMG.”
* Loft + Mansion
** Queens New York + France + Ecuador + Riviera-esq
So far I’ve made the the Watermelon Hedgehog, the Watermelon Icecream cake and The Santa Brownies. I’m currently looking for an excuse to make the spagetti hotdogs. Nobody has invited me and these hotdogs over to a party… yet.
And last but not least Mary, who has a pretty wicked tumblr, but no Pinterest account. Let’s post a pinboard just for her. Pictured below is the Spooky board by Mike Kostyo
I’m sure you guys have been on Pintrest before. Maybe you were looking at some wooden spoons dipped in neon lacquer or illustrations of a dog eating a bear, or DIY tutorials teaching you how to make your hair look like a tree house, etc. I’m sure you have also come across INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES! YES! In experimental type treatments so you will definitely remember to Live! Laugh! Love! Never forget.
We have decided to add to that vast online collection. Maybe someone will pin these, too, and we will glow inside knowing that we have changed someone’s outlook on life forever.
I’m going to preface this post by saying that, at one point, I thought I had gluten intolerance. I still may. I don’t know. It is an untimely process of elimination after an assault of tests or, more likely, divination.
I’ve tried many gluten-free products to bolster a mostly gluten-free food existence. Listen, I’m not doing this because it’s all-the-rage or suffer from bread guilt or whatever. I love pasta. I love bread. Neither make me feel good anymore and it’s a sadness words cannot express. The expensive rice bread disintegrates into a powdery pulp as soon as it makes contact with saliva. The quinoa pasta sticks to itself. Gluten is the life-glue of every warm homemade roll and piece of pie and mound of lasagna worth eating.
It’s hard to know what gluten-free products will taste good. A cracker is a product I can usually live without, but sometimes I want to put cheese on a hard, flat surface and then put it into my mouth. It’s a psychological vehicle for dairy.
The Orgran Toasted Crispibread (yes the ‘i’ is italicized on the box) is something I found at Park Natural and was hopeful it could become my go-to cracker. The reviews were mixed. Veronica, Matt, and I discuss its qualities for your pleasure.*
