Pinterest boards for memory sharing? Absolutely! Pinterest isn’t just for recipes. You can use Pinterest boards to preserve your own memories or as resources to find new ideas that spark your creativity. If you haven’t discovered Pinterest yet, give it a whirl. How to Use Pinterest to Share Memories should help you get started.
Here are a few of my favorite memory sharing Pinterest boards.
Boards Featuring General Sharing of Memories
Many of the memory sharing Pinterest boards on the Internet focus on scrapbooking or family history, as opposed to writing and sharing memories over a variety of media. However, there are a couple that cut across hobby groups.
Okay, full disclosure: This is the one I curate, but this isn’t just shameless promotion. Most of my boards address some type of memory sharing, including scrapbooking, writing, photography, and gift giving. The Sharing Memories board covers everything from DIY to home decorating.
I don’t know who Nana is, but she has a great collection of memory sharing ideas, from displaying beginner ballet slippers to creative journaling. Though it’s not strictly a memory sharing board, her “Picture This” board has some cool photo-posing ideas.
Trace Magazine’s I Love Family Memories Pinterest Board is great for ideas on how to make memories as well as how to preserve and share them.
A simple Google search will lead you to countless boards, but my vote goes to the 202 boards curated by Debbie Hodge of Get It Scrapped. She’s sorted her projects by layout style, color, inspiration, and motif. If you’re into paper crafts, you’re sure to find something that inspires you.
If you’re interested in digital scrapbooking, there are some great ideas at digitalscrapbook.com’s board. Some of their ideas are digital versions of traditional layouts, but other layouts are completely different—using graphics to tell stories.
Family History Pinterest Boards
I have to confess that I don’t have a favorite. Luckily, Valerie Elkins has done some research. View her top recommendations.
I’m still discovering boards. If you know of one I’ve missed (or if you have a good one), please let me know in the comments.
