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 :)

Laughter Is The Best Medicine - Wrapping Up October

Wrapping up October with a laugh and a some inspiration.

28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. 29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:28-31

Have a safe and inspired week.

Countdown to Christmas - Teal and Tang

I know it is a bit of an odd combination but I was inspired when I seen a row of fiery deep tang and burnt umber items sandwiched between some beautiful cool teal.  Bingo the theme of this Gift Guide post.

What better way to ensure a unique Christmas gift for that one of a kind friend or loved one.  Show them you have put time and thought into picking that perfect Christmas gift.

Hope you enjoy these favorites hand picked by me.
