Etsy Status Update


Okay, its just after midnight and I have GOT to get to bed but I thought I'd let everyone know where my Etsy adventure stands.....

Dang I have some amazing shots I had forgotten all about. Going through my files has actually been fun (for the most part...I also realise I have taken a ton of crap shots and weeding through those is no picnic!) Going through these has helped me decide to offer my cards in set series....like Autumn, and Winter Garden. I tend to take pictures over and again on a theme so finding enough shots to fit a series of cards is no problem.....

Yesterday I went to Xpedex and bought blank cards, some colored card stock, plastic sheaths for the cards, etc etc. I did, however, forget double-sided sticky tape when I was at Wal-Mart (I figured it would be less expensive there than at Xpedex). Yup, my cards are going to have actual photos attached to the front that can be removed and framed if so desired.

My banner should be ready to be uploaded....we'll find out for certain tomorrow evening when I try to install it.

I still have to print up some business cards that I can add a note of thanks on the back to.....but then I really don't need those immediately. I just want to be sure to have some on hand for my first sale. I think getting those printed up might have to wait, however, until I get back from Yancy and Leah's wedding...I may get a couple sheets printed at Kinkos for the interum just to be on the safe side.

As for my room.....well....a little of it got done. I will have to focus on organizing this mess more after work tomorrow.

Oh, and if anyone has been trying to get a hold of me this weekend....I did not deliberately turn my phone off. It ran out of juice after I talked with Lucie on Friday and now no matter how much I charge it the stupid phone refuses to turn back on. I went online today to do a little research into this and it turns out its a design flaw with the phone. Apparently its been known to crash when downloading music into it as well (which is pathetic considering its an MP3 player!) Seeing as its a new phone I need to go to T-Mobile tomorrow and make them exchange it for a working model, so hopefully I will be back on the phone again by tomorrow afternoon.

Okay, enough.....bed calls!

Well that was the plan....and then I thought I'd take a quick look for an image I was thinking of. The next thing I know a couple of hours had gone by!

Your shots are so awesome!

Thanks Kris. This is going to be one of a card series I am calling "Winter Trees"...its hard to tell but this is actually a color shot, not black and white.
