    Yes! I do believe that Pinterest is the new FaceBook. I love the simplicity of the program. It is a great way to collect and share everything you love. Ii have recipes and fashion, by two passions and I love the way that people are responding to both.

    Most of us are visual and seek immediate gratification – Pinterest seems to provide both! Yes, just posted some boards under Ulla Popken and love them!
