Pinterest is a virtual “pin board,” a place to pin anything you see online that inspires you or that you love and think you’ll want to remember for a future project or just for fun. You can read more about what Pinterest is in this previous PINTEREST post.
Labeling a Picture for Pinning:
Recently, Kate at Centsational Girl gave a brief tutorial on how to add wording to a photo with Pixlr, without totally blocking out the photo. I followed her great directions and it was super easy to do. I didn’t include a tutorial here below…just click over to the link above to read Kate’s tutorial.
So here’s how my first try at labeling pics turned out using Pixlr. (Click any link title below for the tutorial.) I won’t be labeling every photo in a post. I’ll only label one photo in each post just in case someone does prefer pinning a photo with a description of what the post is about.

I’m going back through some of my old tutorials (it’s taking a while) and creating labels like the ones you see here. Then I’m adding that labeled photo to the tutorial post. So, if you see a tutorial or something else you find helpful here at BNOTP and you wish to pin it to Pinterest to save for future reference, hopefully I’ll have a photo labeled in the post that’s just perfect for pinning. Of course, you are always welcome to pin anything you see here, but I hope these “labeled” photos will help save you some work and time as you pin.

Wish to pin the tutorials above?
To pin any of the tutorials I’ve referenced above, you can:
1. Pin the photo here
2. If you want your pin to take you back to the original tutorial post, just click on the link that’s shown above each photo in this post. That link will take you back to the original tutorial where you’ll also find the labeled photo to pin. That’s probably the better way to pin any of the tuts above because your pin will always take you straight back to the original tutorial itself.
Hope you find these “labeled” pics I’ll be including in future tutorials helpful.
