|So much inspiration from this uncredited Tumblr image.|
I see two brooches, a pair of earrings, and a hair ornament.
What do you see?
And even more than that, Pinterest can be viewed as a world wide cabinet of curiosities put together by the thousands (maybe even millions) of other pinners that inhabit the world of Pinterest. By clicking on the bulletin board thumbtacks/grey speech balloon icon to the right of your name, you can see how other pinners are attracted to the images you post. Then by clicking on those pinners, you can see what interests they have that you might not have considered before. I've been introduced to stunningly intricate and beautiful scientific micro organisms, and how some of those scientific images have been translated into art pieces by other makers, seen how people have taken iconic objects and totally transformed them; and just been totally blown away at the creativity and intellectual imagination of my compatriots.

The next time you 'waste' time surfing the world of Pinterest, switch gears and be more mindful of the images you're viewing. Observe the details, zero in on the elemental structures and forms that make up the whole of what you see. Try to re imagine and re conceive seemingly trivial aspects to turn them into inspiration for future projects.
