Photography By Colleen on Pixels - Chicago Signs & Marquees

 Fine Art Photography
So obviously I went camera crazy while downtown Chicago. What can I say I love photography and taking photos.  The trip to Chitown was just what I needed to get my creative juices flowing

Once I am caught up on my Chicago Architecture and downtown series I will be all set to move to the photographs taken at the botanical gardens.  I can't wait and hope you are as excited about that coming as I am.

The following photos are a series of Signs and Marquees found in the heart of Chicago.

Pinterest Party; You Pin Us We Pin You

We made it to another wonderful weekend.  So 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 :)
