Countdown to Mother's Day Gift Guide

Because of my passion for old Victorian and vintage items I love to explore the traditions of our past. During the this period the type and color of the flower you sent had deep meaning. Even sending a card with their image would be sending a distinct message.  Flowers are also associated with your birth month.  You might say that during the Victorian age the Language of flowers bloomed.

 This week's picks are dedicated to those mother's born during the months of January and February

Pinterest Party; You Pin Us We Pin You!

Good morning, I am hoping everyone is having a relaxing weekend.  So Let's Party! that is 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, like and repin, makes it sooo much easier :)
Pinterest Party Rules
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 :)
