By the time you read this I should be strolling along the sandy shores of Black Rock Sands in Wales and enjoying some well earned rest. It’s half term in the UK. Elly has finished her exams. All we can do now is hope she did enough to get through to year 2 and if she’s lucky enough to achieve that, perhaps she won’t be so blasé about homework and deadlines in the future. One can only hope 😉
Jay has also finished school for the week and is looking forward to putting his feet up for a change having spent the last two weeks pounding the school hall and ensuring all the students are busy focusing on their own papers during exams. On average he managed a whopping 25000 steps per day. Phew!
As for me, I’m glad to take some time away from the computer, get some fresh air and actually do some walking. It’s amazing how quickly time flies when you are busy focused on some project or other. Before you know it, it’s 2am and you’ve still got a ton of work to do so any hope of fresh air and exercise is done for, lol.
Recently I made a huge ‘BooBoo’ (pun totally intended). Of an evening, in an effort to spend more family time I’ve taken to my iPad and Pinterest. Well, it’s better then watching snooker but don’t tell Jay I said that 😉
I was happily pinning away one evening, oblivious to anything but that gorgeous sunset image or those lovely flowers or…. ohhhhh…. I like the sound of that recipe… when I got a FB message from Rae asking me to ‘kindly stop pinning as our FB fans were being inundated with my pins’……
I had no idea all my pins were also going over to my FB page and even less of an idea on how to stop them showing up there. Feeling very flustered, a little shocked at some of the comments and rather foolish that I hadn’t realised, I asked Rae to show me how to stop it. Unfortunately, I simply couldn’t work it out.
Then, as if by magic, I get this post in my inbox….. Talk about great timing (or was someone watching me….hmmmm)
Anyway, just in case you have also found yourself in this unfortunate and rather embarrassing position I thought I’d share the post with you.
How to Prevent Pinterest from Posting to Your Facebook Timeline
If you have connected your Pinterest profile with your Facebook account, it is likely that, with your consent, all of your Pinterest Pins are being automatically posted to your Facebook profile. You might want this configuration to avoid the overhead of sharing the same content individually on your both Pinterest and Facebook accounts.
However there may be situations where you do not want your Pins to be shared on Facebook. To get this done, the easy way is that you ensure that the ‘Post to Facebook’ checkbox remains unchecked on the ‘Pick a board’ window that comes up every time you want to Pin an object to your Pinterest pinboard.
In addition to above, if you want to completely disconnect your Pinterest profile from your Facebook account, there’s an easy way to do it.
Here’s how: Read the full article HERE
I’d like to take this opportunity to apologise to all those who almost drowned in my pins that night. Thanks guys for being so patient with me. I’ve now got the hang of things and am pinning away happily in the knowledge that those pins stay securely on my Pinterest Boards only.
Weekly Round Up
Let’s take a quick look back at last week
We shared one of our favourite collections on $2 Tuesday with ‘In the Country‘. Although that special deal is now over you can still get ‘In The Country’ at a great discount plus, if you missed it, you can still pick up all those lovely goodies in THIS POST
On Wednesday we released OSB 65. Oh my word but I just love the gorgeous delicate colors in this OSB. It’s still available through all my stores for that smashing New Release Discount and you can still grab those Goodies via THIS POST
And of course, yesterday we released the BIG Collection – Cottage Garden. Isn’t it quaint 😉
You can find that in all my stores too and why not take a look at the Blossoms Inspiration while you grab your Cottage Garden Goodies via THIS POST
Some of my favourite layouts this week.
OSB 65 – J Fisher

Coming up next week.
We’ve got a full week planned for you on the BLOG next week. We will send out News Briefs for our Newsletter Subscribers so you guys don’t miss out on the up-coming One Day Sales we have planned for you.
Let’s take a sneaky peek look 😉
$2 Tuesday is taking us all the way down Memory Lane. It’s just $2 for the Page kit and $1 per add on pack and we think you’re gonna love it. Available at Gotta Pixel for One Day ONLY
New Release – OSB 66: If you thought last weeks OSB was gorgeous you should see this weeks. It’s positively delightful. There will be goodies too so be sure to visit the BLOG to keep up. It will be available in all my stores.
‘Throw Back Thursday’: We’re delving back into the BooLand archives and digging up some almost fossilised goodies for you to enjoy and yesteryears prices. These are being brought to you due to high demand and we always aim to please at Booland…….
I don’t have a ‘sneaky peek image to share ( I forgot) so instead I’ll leave you with a clue. This one likes to roar….. any guesses?
FANday Friday: Oh I’ve been looking forward to this one so much. It’s my chance to share my FAN crushes with you and, if I’m really lucky, those Designers I love will also be sharing a little something with YOU. This weeks is a real treat 😉
Saturday – New Release – The BIG One – Dad’s Shed Collection: I’m excited about this huge collection. Not only did I actually love the whole creative process from the moment of inspiration, ahhhhh the memories…., to the final step, zipping those babies up 🙂 but also because, well, I’m not usually one for male style kits. The fact that this one came into being as smoothly as it did is still a surprise to me. I sure hope you’ll like it as much as I do. Best of all, it’s out just in time for Fathers Day :).
Here’s a little sneaky peek for you….
