Photography by Colleen

All of my friends and family back in the Eastern side of the country... Be safe.  I am Praying for you.

I have begun to shift my photographs over to my new website which will at least eliminate the extra Etsy fees.  But that being said it takes so long to establish any site so please stop by, look around, and if you could help promote.  I really would appreciate any activity on the site.  Blessings my friends

Thank you MLK!

From a Broken Seal to Free Wifi; Laughter Is The Best Medicine

Before I start the funnies, this morning I read a FB post from a very dear school friend that had me thinking.  She is struggling with her failures, mistakes, the pain she perceives she caused others, etc.  I think most of us can related with those low moments since to regret is to be human.

I bring this up because I am the queen of beating myself up and one of my goals this year is to shed the chains of regret and to focus on the future.  It is so easy to say but so awfully hard to do but I have to.  I have to so I can have peace, so I have a future and so I can lead by example.  We can't change the past, we need to own our past and if there is something we did wrong ask for forgiveness but then let it go. 

Romans 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.  This passage is telling us that God is going to take those mistakes, take those wrongs and work them for our good.   And not only our good but good for others that are believers.  Yes, we are stupid but it doesn't matter, God has our backs.  

Peace be with you my friends, sweet peace that can only be achieved by believing we are forgiven.

And now to lighten it up a bit...

From a Broken Seal to Free Wifi; Laughter Is The Best 
Medicine

Proverbs 17:22 A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones

Pinterest Party; You Pin Us We Pin You!

Let's Party! Pinterest Party that is!

Pinterest Party

Pinterest can generate a lot of traffic to your site fast, it has become a key in self promotion and showing off your products.  By having others repin and "like" your pins it moves yours towards that top bracket (where we all want to be!)

For this to be successful there will be some rules and instructions. Please note we are using InLinkz for our pins to promote, click, like and repin, makes it sooo much easier :)
Pinterest Party Rules
#ButterflysPin
There have been many questions about where to place the hashtag "#ButterflysPin so I am including a clip to hopefully help show where to place it.
