Seriously, how did we get by before there was such a thing as internet peeps?
Thanks to blogging, FaceBook, Twitter, Pinterest and now Instagram, I can throw a question out there and BAM! Within mere minutes some internet friend has an answer or two, or six for me. Last week I began pinning ideas for an upcoming baby shower with a slant towards bumble bees.
(Not over-the-top cutesy with bees perched on everything, but a few here and there.)
(Not that there is anything wrong with cutesy, it's just not me.)
After seeing someone's party pictures on Pinterest, I googled, and found a darling reproduction beverage server on ebay that resembled a bee skep, so I pinned it to have it on hand to refer to while deciding if I should buy it...(you know, paying shipping and all that....) The next thing I knew, two friends responded to my pin, letting me know where I could find the beverage server locally.
With no shpping fees.
I love it when that happens!
(Thank you Kathy and Sandi!)
Have you had similar experiences? I'd love to ready your stories!
I think it's just awesome, living in these times of cutting edge, creative technology, where we can literally have a hundred-million-kajillion friends. It makes the world a much friendlier place, don't you agree?
