If you haven't discovered Pinterest yet, you may just want to stop reading now. Beacuse once you go, you will become addicted, and any vestige of free time you ever had in your already extremely overbooked life will be long, long gone. But in a good way.
Pinterest is a social bookmarking site -- which sounds way more boring that it actually is -- kind of like a cross between Etsy, your favorite blogs, and the Facebook walls of all your smart mommy friends with great taste. At its core it's a continuously updated database of visual ideas from sites all around the net -- and you pin, and repin, links from the Web or boards of people who share your artistic and aesthetic sensibility.
The best part is that somehow it's full of smart, crafty, creative moms with killer taste. (Just like you.) Use it to figure out what to cook for dinner tonight (may we suggest), to browse amazing ideas for your two-year-old's next birthday party, or see the 20,000 uses for broken, stubby crayons. Chances are your favorite bloggers, style-experts, chefs, friends are actually already on Pinterest -- follow their boards to get a direct line to their great ideas. Oh, and feel free to follow iVillage and our editors, too!
