I have read a few posts about the site Pinterest and despite the various concerns I have recently started using it on a regular basis.
I find it really useful as an online scrapbook and have been tweaking my boards into a collection that suit my needs. I find that it helps to collate information and research to enable me to gather together websites, printies, tutorials and inspiration. So many times I spend an evening looking for items or ideas and then forget where I saw that tutorial on scenic water or book making. Now I 'Pin It' and can find it easily on my 'Miniature Tutorials' board.
I know there are some concerns about copyright so I try to make sure my 'Pins' are directly linked to the source but for me it is a wonderful way to collect together the work of lots of amazing miniaturists whose pieces are way beyond my budget.
This is a link to my Pinterest boards so feel free to have a browse at what I have gathered together. It is very easy to set up an account and start creating your own scrapbook.
One of my favourite miniaturist's has just started her own blog. Lory Tonetti of 64tntminiatures produces a wonderful range of chic and spooky pieces to suit any scene.
Please go over to her blog to see her work and welcome Lory to Blogland.
