You are on the good track, surely, but please consider putting more interest in usability rather, then in "the looks". All the clicking should be done in right-click context menu, instead of popping up a huge "nicely-looking" window with details of new pin to be filled (obligatory!).
I mean... it's obvious in my opinion: NOT THE WAY YOU PIN SHOULD BE INTERESTING, BUT THE PIN ITSELF!
The way should be S-H-O-R-T, for God's sake!
It should look like this:
1) right-click on the finding
2) first mouse movement to "Pin it" command in context menu. The submenu opens.
3) second mouse movement to chose in submenu the specific board (or create a new one)
4) second click, confirming the choice of the board.
(please note, that I have omitted the "description" part of the pin. And I did it on purpose. Why? To shorten the way! This should be an option in add-on settings - If I don't want descriptions, I should be able to turn the obligation to describe pins off).THINK more about the usability, and LESS about the looks. TIME is money :)
EDIT (I can't reply to your reply :)
Felix, thank You for the response. I see you have some strong argumentation here, and I appreciate it. But I don't agree with it :) But in that case I should just look for a different clipping-making-machine, then pinterest. As I see - here everything is a bit too "idiot-proof" for my likings. Please don't get me wrong - you have here a gooooood stuff, and strong design spine. I very much like this attitude. But those design principals target pinterest (and this add-on) to a group of users... I don't belong to :) It's just not my way of pinning :)

It's awesome... BUT:
I think that more easy-way to clip things across the web is to think of this process like FROM the finding TO the notebook.
Now, in this version of springpad add-on, if you stumble upon something interesting, you have to:
click #1. open the springpad panel
click #2-4. find the desired notebook (the amount of click depends on how you left your panel last time you used it)
click #5. click the scissors
click #6. confirm making new spring
I think that it should rather look like this:
click #1. right-click on an image/highlighted text/page address/anything
click #2. navigate to "spring" command and click to see available notebooks
click #3. pick a notebook.
BENEFITS OF THAT?
1. few clicks less
2. your clipping is done on the center of the screen, without unnecessary mouse traveling
3. your action is focused ON THE FINDING, not ON THE NOTEBOOK - the "system" remains transparent, as it should.
But - besides that above thoughts - the springpad is AWESOME!!! And thank you for it's being free. I mean it - thank you!!!!! :)
