Thanks so much...I am soooo excited to have won my first random drawing!!!!

My Pinterest addiction has finally paid off and I am no longer ashamed of the mega hours lost to pinning.

Check out my boards under....Karen Clifford. ;-)

Hi again everyone! Check out the winners. :D Thanks to everyone who entered!

And a big thanks to Penolopy Bulnick for organizing this and running it! She's super fancy.

Does every pin need to come from the Instructable website?

At least 10 need to to qualify. You can have more going elsewhere if you would like.

BTW...is Instructables thinking about adding a Pin-it button someday?

We did have one for a little while in food and living, but it didn't last long! I'm not sure it'll ever be a permanent feature of the site.

why not? it's easier...
does it cut down on your revenue somehow? thought it was free
btw...here is mine...please include me in the contest
how do we know if we are accepted or not?

Jessy, wouldn't it be nice for everyone to post a link to their new, Pinterest "My Favorite Instructables" here? ;-)

Yes! Though I know we have lots of entries already, so we might have missed the boat there. Whoops!

Perhaps at the end Nicole or I will share the entries with everyone. :D

Why did the Pin It button go away? There used to be one on every instructables page?

WooHoo pin all the things!
