Cloth Diaper Column - Cloth Diapers on Pinterest

Plus a Tots Bots Easy Fit Giveaway!


Issue #12, May 2013


Welcome to our our fourth issue of Cloth Diaper Column for 2013! This month, we're launching a little giveaway for our Pinterest fans, and we're talking about Cloth Diapers on Pinterest - my favorite social media site!  Plus, we've got other news, new articles, and more!


Time Flies!

It's hard to believe May is almost over!  Wow, time flies!  I'm sorry for not getting a newsletter out last month, and I'm hoping you'll enjoy this one, plus an extra little giveaway for a Tots Bots Easy Fit this month - just because!

The good news is that you are the pilot."

We're celebrating my little boy's birthday this week and he's been counting down the days!  I remember being in such a rush to grow up when I was little, and now when I look back on my own childhood, I do wish that it had lasted longer.  Do your kids wish away the years?  Any advice on how to get them to slow down (besides putting a brick on their heads?!)


This Month's Feature

Cloth Diapers on Pinterest

Are you on Pinterest yet?

Pinterest is my favorite social media website.  I love to browse websites and blogs, but I've always struggled to find the content I love later on.  Well, no longer!  Now I use Pinterest to organize my on-line inspiration!


I'll warn you right now, as enjoyable as Pinterest can be, it's also a bit of a (mostly harmless!) addiction for me.  If you've got something you need to do or somewhere you need to be, you may want to put your computer down now!


What is Pinterest?

For any of you who may not yet be on Pinterest, here's what Wikipedia says about it... Pinterest is a pinboard-style photo-sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections such as events, interests, and hobbies. Users can browse other pinboards for images, 're-pin' images to their own pinboards, or 'like' photos.


Unlike "bookmarks", Pinterest can easily be organized by theme, and provides a visual indication of what the page you saved is about, and you can add your own comments about the page as well.  Below is an example of a pin I added to my cloth diaper board.  You can click on the image below to view this pin on Pinterest.

Cloth Diapers on Pinterest

Like many other topics, cloth diapers are well-covered on Pinterest!  You can find boards with favorite prints, hand-made diapers, sewing tips, and care instructions.  And since they are so cute, cloth diapers make great pinning material!  Here are two cloth diaper boards I follow and enjoy a lot:


Plus, here's a link to my own cloth diaper board, which I've filled with lots of cloth diaper pins from Thinking About Cloth Diapers and other blogs and websites I read!
