Hang on, I’m pinning!

Similar to many of you in the blogosphere, many of us at Nod have caught the Pinterest bug! It’s so powerful; I feel like Christopher Walken’s character in the infamous SNL skit, “I got a fever and the only prescription is more cowbell” except, for me, the only prescription is more pinning!

Its genius really – one can find DIY projects, recipes and design inspiration from any bit of information on the web.  It’s often that I say, “Why didn’t I think of that?” or “I NEED this gold sparkle top, like right now”.  I love that I can find Tuesday night’s taco dinner and a fun activity for my 15 month old son to save and review at any time.

Take a look at some of our favorite Pinterest Boards:


Cake:  Who doesn’t love a reason to celebrate? Whether you’re looking for inspiration for a baby shower, a garden party or all things Phillies (go Cubbies) – Becca’s boards highlight custom events to a tee.



Making It Lovely: Live for style, design and parties? Nicole not only showcases her amazing home décor finds, but covers what to wear for every member of the family.



Miss Shawna: Young, hip & modern mom – Shawna’s board’s tour all four seasons mixed with sweet & funky finds for baby. Shawna has an eye for style that is sophisticated yet approachable.



Curly Birds: Helen’s boards are very organic, natural and crafty. Specializing in kids’ activities, you’ll find hundreds of things to keep them occupied on a rainy day.

You’re sure to find a wide variety of inspiration from these four accounts.


While you’re there, take a look at our Pinterest page. You’ll find our favorite Etsy items, patterns and off the chain pancake recipes!

In addition to being the mom to heart-throb toddler, Gavin, Katie’s in charge of all things social media and PR at Nod. She’s exceedingly energetic, which is good since, like the rest of us, she’s just trying to figure out how to be an incredible mom, while working and still having a blast being young herself! (BTW, we think she’s nailing it, but she’d probably disagree…darn mommy guilt.)
