Attention all Pinterest fanatics. A local business in Lubbock is all about making your Pinterest dreams come true. Pinspired is a workshop located on West 19th St. that has all the resources you need to complete you're Pinterest projects.
Pinterest is an online photo-sharing web site where users can share ideas for crafts, recipes and everything in between. Shay Kindle opened Pinspired about ten months ago after getting constant requests from her friends for her crafty eye.
"When Pinterest hit, my girlfriends started driving me insane, everyone was calling me with different ideas," Kindle said.
In less then a year, the business has outgrown it's location and Kindle says, the success has been unbelievable.
"No one has ever done this. Even when I went to get a loan it was hard because they thought I was insane to let a bunch of women to use power tools," Kindle said.
Now the business caters to anyone who has an idea and just needs the materials and direction to get it done.
"A lot of people are hesitant to try things because of their skill set. They don't have the space and they don't want to make a mess. But they can come here and make a mess any day of the week," Kindle said.
"I think it's awesome. I love crafts, but I'm not a creative person and I love Pinterest but can't do any of the stuff, but it's nice to have someone help me," Rebecca Nickens said.
Nickens brought Kindle a long list of gift ideas for her family for Christmas.
"I'll be able to brag about it a lot for sure and they'll never be able to throw it away because I made it," Nickens said.
For her clients, Kindle says a sense of accomplishment always comes along with a finished product.
"It's very empowering for the people that do it. We spend so much time and money trying to get ourselves to feel a certain way by purchasing certain things. But those feelings grow ten fold when you build it yourself," Kindle said.
So from simple Jewelry holders, to mason jar decor and even tables made out of old barn doors, Kindle says Pinspired has everything one needs to make their Pinterest pin boards come to life.
