How to {Tuesday} Keep Track of Everything You Ever Want to Do or Make or Wear or Bake or...

Hello I'm Erin Shakespear and I'm a Pinterestaholic.

Yep. I've gotten a bit distracted these days.  Sure I've been busy with Sam's birthday and my husband's birthday and getting ready for Zoe's birthday (squee! My husband and I are combining our talents and making her something really really cool! Ack! She is going to be SO EXCITED!) and I've done a smattering of writing as well as some Cub Scout stuff, not to mention that summer is here and all my monkeys are swinging around the trees, I mean, our house, like a bunch of hopped-up, well, monkeys.

But what seems to be eating up most of my free time is Pinterest.  Yes, everyone and their pet llama knew about it before me...yep, I like to arrive fashionable late to parties.  Or, my husband would just call it "really late". BUT now that I'm there, I can't stop pinning! I LOVE it.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!. 

I even have a board dedicated to my middle grade novel book. It's called Jasper and I pin everything and anything onto it that I feel is inspiring for different scenes in my book.  I kind of wish there was a way to make a private board though and then I would type up all sorts of notes to myself with the pins.  But as it is I don't quite want to bare the Crazy-Writer Me to just anyone.  Only a select few get to see that chickadee.  Aren't they so lucky? Yep. Don't be jealous.

If  you'd like to follow me, you can find me Here.  And if you are like me and are late to the Pinterest party (dang those pet llamas that are cooler than us.) then let me know, send me your email and I'll get an invite sent to you (yeah, I'm awesome like that.)


  1. Um. I'm apparently less cool than a pet llama, but it looks like great fun. Can you invite me?

  2. pick me, pick me! I want an invite... I think you said that you sent one to me but I didn't get it. :( Maybe try this email address >> m@jmshake.com

  3. I am obviously very out of the loop, but this is the first time I've seen it. You should send me an invite.

  4. I guess I'm not in the loop either. Looks like fun. I was excited to find your blog. Haven't seen you for a long time.
