I’ve self-diagnosed myself with an affliction that has yet to show up in the DSM. I’m calling it obsessive-compulsive bookmarking disorder, and it may be my downfall.
I first experimented with bookmarking outside of my browser with Delicious, and I still contend that for recipe bookmarking, Delicious can’t be beat. But I dreamed of a visual component, so I started playing around with Kaboodle, which I’ve always liked, particularly for shopping and comparing purposes, but never loved. Evernote had my heart for a while, but I never felt like it excelled at the visual element, particularly when I clipped images from house tours. So it was with some trepidation that I started with Pinterest.
Fast forward a few weeks, and I am so sold on Pinterest that I attended a Pinterest party (hey, that’s me in the second to last photo!) last week. I acted beyond nerdy when I met Pinerest founder Ben. (Sorry, Ben.) I say on a daily basis, “Know what I saw on Pinterest?” I evangelize. (Pinterest should really be paying me.)
So I’ve been pinning nursery ideas. Here’s a screenshot of where we are today:
Thus far, we have two pieces of yet-to-be-assembled furniture and little else. I’m not really into themes, though I have had a strong leaning towards elephants since finding out about baby. Hence all the damn elephants.
The problem—and it’s not really a problem—is that on a weekly basis, I start second-guessing myself. I stumbled across a post earlier from Sarah Farris-Gilbert where I was tickled to find that she mocked up five nursery designs for herself—and she does this for a living, people. So let’s blame pregnancy for fear of decorating commitment—and my daily 2am bathroom breaks.
