2 Years

Today I happily celebrate my etsy shop's two year anniversary. I never dreamed my shop would be so good to me. Not only has it helped me spread my photographs out into the world, but it has lead me to some amazing opportunities, and introduced me to some great friends. Thank you to all of you who call my shop a "favorite" (or gave me a "heart" in etsy terms), made a purchase, or left a kind little message for me to find in my etsy mailbox.
Today, each customer will receive a lovely fine art notecard of their choice with their purchase. (Just leave the title of the photograph you'd like on your card in the "notes" section upon checkout.) And, I may even toss in a few extra goodies as well.
Thank you, thank you everyone!


Wishing you snow filled and joyous holidays!


Racheal Ray

I am so thrilled to see the Etsy front page this morning which includes items seen on or inspired by today's Racheal Ray Show.
Right now I am not sure if my "Baby Blue" photograph was actually on the show which featured a segment on Etsy, or in the "inspired" category. I have to wait until it airs here at 4:00 p.m. What torture! I did talk with the shows producers a few weeks ago, so I am not totally surprised by today's front page. But, I am excited that Etsy is getting more widespread attention. I hope any of you who watch the show know there is still time to shop on Etsy for the holidays. I can't speak for all sellers, but I am trying very hard to get all orders shipped on the day they were placed. And, will be shipping right until the last minute with upgrades to Express Mail if requested. (Just in case you're like me and have barely started your holiday shopping!)


Time Flys

So how I feel today. Lots of flying around...

Blame it on my mother-in-law when you spend way too much time playing with Office Max's Elf-Yourself. (You can see their moves here.) She sent us one of our family, and then my kids wanted to make their own to include Grandma and the cat...and then we had to play it again, and again, and again, and again. Good luck getting that jingly song out of your head :)
