I love Pinterest! It's a great source of ideas. I know a lot of people pin things they'll never use, and that's totally fine--it helps the site work better, actually--but craft- or decor-wise, most of the things I pin are ideas I actually use (or consciously decide not to). Not directly, necessarily, but I'm always making up my own projects from ideas I get there. That is, I apply techniques I learn there to my own applications. Like recently, I did some glass etching on a wine bottle, creating a "label" with our last initial on it (and cool "torn" edges I made by ripping painter's tape in half the long way and using them as etching stencils), then I painted it, but not on the outside like you see all over Pinterest; I mixed up a custom color with hobby acrylics and a little water and rolled it around the inside to coat it. Turned out very cool ... except I did learn that etching on colored glass creates a really subtle effect, more subtle than I wanted. Anyway, the parts about that I got from Pinterest were: 1) how to do glass etching in general, and 2) wine bottles + paint = cool. The masking tape thing was just an experiment I thought of midway through the project.
