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.

Here's to a wonderful New Year filled with prosperity and blessings.

Remembering Christmas Past

I think the holidays often make us nostalgic for those lovely memories of family gatherings, Santa, and the Christmases of long ago.  When we remember those Christmas Past it is through rose colored glasses forgetting the insanity of trying to shop with cranky kids or burnt Christmas pies and all the other mini holiday disasters.  In fact often those mini disasters are fondly recalled around the Christmas dinner table with laughter and merriment.

A mix of my favorite Christmas postcards and Christmas photos.  Good memories:

Me and a very unhappy Christmas kitty

Me 1970's
Me 1970's and a little happier kitty

Ashley and Jr 1992

One of my favorite Christmas Trees (snowman themed)
Ashley and Jr around 1995
Ashley around 1996

Ashley and Jr around 1999
Jr around 2003

Another one of my favorite trees (Birth of Christ theme)

You're the Star Family Feature Week 3

A Merry Christmas (a little early :)
I am really excited to say that I have been having the best holiday I have had in years.  My husband has helped make this a magical and very merry Christmas season.  I have my daughter here for her first Christmas with us in our home in California.  No more hanging out in a hotel hiding from subzero temperatures or trying to make Christmas dinner in the hotel's kitchenette.  No more Denny's or Perkins during the holidays for this family! Not that I don't have wonderful and exciting memories from these Christmas past but I am so excited for the new chapter in our family's life.

There are several ways to follow me:
