Hi folks! I just noticed that there is a new icon on DP page that takes you to Pinterest website. Very interesting idea but unfortunately you have to be invited to have a membership. If anyone has an access I would appreciate if you could send invite to me. If you have one please PM me. Thanks!

You can request an invite directly form Pinterest. My wife got hers pretty fast from them. But I don't know if they have slowed down on handing out the invites.

@belarus94 I tried to PM you, but the messaging option didn't work for me for some reason. If you still need an invite, just let me know.

@FibroMom, brainie asked the same question in an earlier Ask & Share: http://dealspl.us/answer/not_the_must_high_tech_person_i_will_admit/13028
Not a silly question at all :P

Requested an invite yesterday. Hopefully I'll get to play with it soon

I'm not sure if we get a limit, but send me a message with your email and I will give an invite to as many as I can.

I joined the waiting list Sat. night, and they sent invite this afternoon. So, the wait wasn't too long. Absolutely beautiful pictures & great inspiration for all kinds of things.

It took me about a week to get an invite - you can also send invites to friends once you're on and to your Fb friends pretty easily ;)

The invites are starting to take a little longer due to its popularity. My wife had to get an invite from a friend because they were taking a long time, They are not to blame, it really is a neat site. She is obsessed with it. Its all pins and boards and you can follow people. Its great for people who like to cook, clean, do crafts and other stuff.
At this point it would probably be faster to get an invite from a friend.
