Over the past several months, I've slowly been won over by Pinterest. Snobbery initially led me to believe that Pinterest was purely for the 'crafty' set, and, as a result, I turned up my nose and pledged my allegiance to Tumblr, thinking I'd never need any more inspiration than what turned up there.

Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief

Our thoughts go out to those dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy; if you'd like to make a donation to help relief efforts, go to American Red Cross. Any amount helps. Also, if you're in NYC, there's a dog shelter that really needs volunteers to walk dogs while the trains are down: Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition.
