This first one is a general-useable postcard that I plan on sending out to all my old teacher friends, family, and anyone else I know...giggle....once my website launches. If you would like one email me your address to firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a smaller card that I will give to the photographers that would like to offer them to their clients. It only advertises my custom work. It is smaller and not a useable postcard.
I had an appointment with my business/life coach yesterday. It was good. She helps me in very new and good ways. If any of you are thinking about trying a life/business coach out because you feel a bit buried or don't quite know where to start, it may help you too. If you would like to contact the one I use, email me and I will give you her email address.
Yesterday I was about 5 steps in on a custom order for Tara Whitney when I realized one of my sealers had turned the bw photos a yellow hue. I had to rip them apart-try different papers to print on etc. Sometimes this resin seems to get the best of me. I think I solved the problem but man this whole business thing is a huge learning process. I am really grateful I am waiting for some necklaces for the pendants for her so it didn't delay me getting the order out. It just took a lot of time:)
Ok babe is yelling. Gotta run.
rock a bye summer
I haven't been in the hamock much lately~all business. So I decided a good picture of it hung in my studio would be a good reminder to take a break every once in a while:)
I finally realized I could attach my duaflex to my tripod-can't believe nit took me so long. The pictures are a lot easier to take without trying to keep two cameras still.
Hope you all had a great weekend.
Anyway as I go through the pics it feels like a yearbook, so I decided to give each of them the names that pop into my mind when I look at them-no matter how silly.
Without further ado....

So I have 2 of the above bezels. What TTV print should I put in them? Or should I save them for a custom order? The good news is they came in fast so if they sell I can get more quickly.
I am dancing and clapping and smiling. So happy and excited to play with these new items. I will post pics of the other new stuff soon.

I haven't writrten alot here about how I think my inlaws have come across this blog. It has made me more aware of what I write. How I come across. It has been a bit tough for me to edit myself in this way.
Last night I the fatigue of working tirelessly caught up with me.
My son has decreased his nap time significantly-my twice a week sitter went back to highschool -I don't have family around-and my son is really hitting the place where he gets frustrated easily.
So here I am at 4:30 am - up to get a bit of alone time, before the world around me stirs.
There has been some progress with the website but not much to show for it.
I have been spending so much time on the business end that I have begun to doubt my photography skills. I want all my catalogue pictures to be better. I want all of my photographs to be better.
Being a perfectionist is a tough thing.
So here I am taking a moment to get it out so I can move forward.
Yesterday I started reading bloglines as I said I would in my previous post and I found the above quote on my lovely friend Megg's blog here.
As I read it I saw the truth as it has been ~ and decided that the truth I know now, is that our thoughts manifest things, so I think it would be useful to use this to create a powerful affirmation.
I am adequate and powerful beyond measure. I embrace my lightness, brilliance, gorgeousness, talent and fabulousness. My continued growth and expansion serves the world. I stand strong and proud which makes people feel the same when around me. As I let my own light shine I unconciously give other people permission to do the same. As I am liberated to faith my presence automatically liberates others!

My husband and I got to go out in our kayaks-the ones that have been hanging in our garage unused for 2yrs since the boy was born. These pictures are a few we took with our old canon power shot. Oh how I miss my rebel! Canon said I should get it back next week. Boo hoo:(
My ttv pics were really tough to take without my rebel. I did get a few nice ones though.
