I was pulled away from my writing with the need to get things set up for marketing my books. (Yeah I finally got a plan.) I got sidetracked by making pins for Pinterest. It's easy and I have a ton of quotes and more than enough lovely pictures to use with them. Making Pins are fun when you actually have pictures which fit the quote.
When I read the quote of "Somewhere over the the rainbow", I knew I had the perfect picture. The picture was taken last week in between monsoon storms. It was a double rainbow but I couldn't fit the second one onto the pin.
To make a unique pin, you need to know what you want to say. I save quotes from various websites over the years. I now have a place to use them. The quote on this one is a take on the old adage of you reap what you sow. I thought it was a great reminder for what we should be doing.
The picture was one I took on my way through the Cascades in Washington state. A storm was coming in but what you don't see is the beautiful bright blue of the water. That was what made me stop. It was this lovely blue. If you haven't been to the Cascade Mountains, put it on your bucket list. They are these lovely sharp peaks with snow even in August. The road through them is one to be savored whether you are in a car or one a motorcycle. It was only one of the picturesque stops.
If you want to do something like these, it's a piece of cake. Go to Canva, pick out the Pinterest graphic and get creative. Yep, takes all of ten minutes if you have your picture and wording you want to do on it.
This saying was profound as you have to start somewhere. I started in Key West which is where this picture was taken. This is the famous sunset from Mallory Square. Most of the time you get this beautiful colorful setting sun over the island. You can sit along the quay and watch it while enjoying your drink of choice.
You will see more of these in the future as these little snippets can change your life if you'll let them. Enjoy. Feel free to steal and share them.
