Browsing Pinterest has become my favorite way to end the day as I nurse Gwyneth to sleep! I love the pictures, the ideas, the connections. Illustrations from vintage French children's books, a glitter-filled time-out jar, directions for making word family spinners, a Charlotte's Web t-shirt, printable paper cut-outs of Parisian buildings, and a griffin depicted in stained glass are just a few of the posts and websites that have caught my eye recently.
Honestly, the passivity of it appeals to this sleep-deprived maman--I can read and explore as I click with my one free hand, without having to type anything.
I like that I can do as much or as little as I want with my discoveries--collate them on my virtual bulletin boards, send them to like-minded bibliophiles, francophiles, and moms, try the new recipe or craft right away (but not feel disappointed in myself if I don't), blog about them, or simply browse and enjoy looking at the images and the creative and/or practical ideas they serve as a springboard to.
Are there any pinners you follow that share stuff about language learning, bilingualism, or French? Please let me know whom you recommend. Especially if you yourself are on Pinterest too! (For example, I'm following Perogyo from Perogies and Gyoza.)
