Pinterest it seems is growing each and every day with new members. Pinterest is an online free community bulletin board where you get your own page and can pin photos virtually to your bulletin boards. If you can think of a theme a color a subject then you can create a bulletin board to match and pin pictures you find online and pics of your own you upload. What’s cool about Pinterest is that your virtual boards start to get noticed by the Pinterest online community and they start to follow you and re-pin your pics onto their boards as well as “like” your pics by clicking the ‘like’ button and before you know it, you have a bunch of followers who like your boards and pictures and you too can like and re-pin their pics too onto your boards.
People are pinning holiday pics all day long and it is nearly Spring 2012. Well, being the Gingerbread fanatic I am, I have started my Gingerbread Pinterest boardand am having so much fun. Do you all have a Gingerbread Pinterest board?

If you would like to know a bit more, there are two local TV station mentions worth a look. This one is about a San Angelo family and their yearly get together to put their contest entry together. And another TV News video on the competition… it’s great to see so many folks joining in to do a local event like this one. There was some very loving work put into so many wonderful creations.

Santa’s Village were the first franchised theme parks in the world. There were two Santa’s Villages in California 1950s & 1960s – today they are both closed. One was near Los Angeles, at Skyforest, near Lake Arrowhead in the San Bernadino Mountains. The parks sat on fifteen forested acres, eleven colorful buildings housed Santa Claus and his toy workshops. It was a fairyland setting for his gnomes, elves, Gingerbread kids and little animal friends make up a children’s and grownups’ paradise the year round.” A REAL Gingerbread House, where a Good Witch bakes Gingerbread every day.
