Laughter Is The Best Medicine - Deer Hunters to Reptile Dysfunction

I hope all my readers are as excited for this holiday week as I am.  Ashley, my special needs daughter,
will be visiting all week long so I am super stoked :)  But that does mean I will be much more scarce online this week.

Here is today's inspiration:

Countdown to Christmas in Snow Flake and Ice Blue

Another fabulous gift guide filled with handmade and vintage treasures.  Nothing says "I Love You" as much as something carefully selected for the individual.  How do you select your gifts? Do you carefully select something for a theme each year or do you wait till you hear them give you a hint as to what they want?  I personally shop year round trying to match their special personalities to something as equally as special.  But no matter how hard I try, each year I find myself with a handful of people that are just hard to buy for.

This is where these gift guides are especially helpful.  Also who doesn't love a special handmade stocking stuffer or decorative accessory to top off the package.  I know I do!

My picks today are wonderful treasures in Snow Flakes and Ice Blue:

Pinterest Party; You Pin Us We Pin You

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 :)
Pinterest party example

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