I have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest.  I love all the fabulous inspiring design, clothes, food (oh, the food photos), quotes and ideas.  I hate all the consumption and inadequate feelings I get when I am scrolling through.  The houses and photos of bedrooms, kitchens, living rooms, tree houses, swimming pools are out of this world, then I start to think just how many people in this world can really afford what is posted on Pinterest.  All of the crafty projects, the party ideas, the things to make (including the food), then I start to think just how many people in this world really have time to do those things.  I am thinking of the people that actually have to walk 8 hours a day just to get water or those people who have to defend their home and children against attack or those people even on our own streets in North America who don’t know where their next meal is coming from. How important is Pinterest to them? Does Pinterest make the world a better place or is it just another website that wastes time?  I am sure that both sides of that argument are legitimate especially when I saw this repin by my daughter.
