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.

Photography by Colleen - Botanical and Animal

This week I focused on botanical and animal photos.  Every photograph feels like a friend as I go through my shots I get excited to see them again.  Many of these are from visits to local parks or the Living Desert.  While I love traveling and absolutely enjoy the adventure, sometimes the most interesting things can happen in your own backyard.  New listings on  ButterflyInTheAttic

And as always I offer Free Shipping in the US
