By Nancy Malay. Pinning does not appear to be allowed for her other creations. Artists who stop us from pinning their wares, don't understand the current marketplace. Craftspeople, jewelers, designers ought to be happy to see us pinning their stuff and spreading the word. This is free advertising for goodness' sake! This is a new venture for us too - we're learning as we go. Artists should view Pinterest as an immense opportunity and stop being short-sighted.
