I've noticed how Pinterest has become extremely viral and mainstream lately and I thought I'd share this letter via Link With Love. I'm just spreading the word.
HOWEVER, here's another little note. Just as an afterthought...
Everything created had to have started from something... I, personally, believe that you can be inspired by your surroundings and create something uniquely your own. By applying those inspirations to your work and transforming them into something different, a "new" idea can emerge.
"You are a mashup of what you let into your life..." says, Austin Kleon.
...and I will be purchasing his inspiring book, about that thought, when it's released. (It will be released on Feb. 28th, 2012 http://www.austinkleon.com/steal/)
