Photography By Colleen on Pixels - Bees, Bees, and More Bees!

 Fine Art Photography
Another Collection of photographs from my trip back to Chicago. 

I adore taking photographs of Bees so you can see my passion in the photographs after this introduction.

I am also broadening my reach by offering my photographs at a couple more sites.  The items that each are able to offer are slightly different and it just depends on where you would want to purchase from. 

My shops at:
Etsy: https://etsy.com/shop/ButterflyInTheAttic
Fine Art America (which includes: mugs, totes, tees, and much more) https://fineartamerica.com/profiles/colleen-cornelius.html or
https://colleen-cornelius.pixels.com/ (same items and shop just a little different look)

Pinterest Party; You Pin Us We Pin You

NEW OPTION! 
Post 3 today and come back and post 3 pins tomorrow. 

Still need to Repin all even if you are not posting both days so please stop back and catch any new.

Now Let's Pinterest Party!
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, and repin, makes it sooo much easier :)
#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.
Pinterest party example

Easy Tweet: Please post this button to your blog to spread the word :)
