Ready, Set, Launch! Open for Business!

How exciting~ I just opened my shop and one of my vintage photos was featured in this RED~HOT Etsy Treasury by one of my fellow members of Upcyclers, FabTabulous! Since I upcycle vintage photos and sell JPEG files to be printed and used for crafting, I joined the team with my new shop!
What a fantastic introduction for Photo Art by cnicely ~ this treasury had over 500 views at last count!

Have You Had Your Indie Fixx?

I subscribe to very few blogs by e-mail...My inbox is overflowing without adding any more to it! (one reason for not posting lately, sorry!)  But Indie Fixx is one of my exceptions! I get my daily dose of "indie life" to "inspire, entertain and inform me" from "indie like a foxx", Jen Wallace! Her stylish and beautiful blog has everything I love about the indie world! Creative ideas, articles, resources, and amazing PHOTOS! Jen's posts are full of high quality, well composed product photos, that I truly envy and aspire to create myself! Her love of photography is common knowledge to her readers that enter her "Weekly Photo Challenge". She appreciates and, sometimes, rewards a good pic! The Weekly Photo Challenges are a new feature calling for readers to upload photos around a particular theme to the Indie Fixx Flickr Group.

One winner will be chosen to win a copy of Craft-In: 12 Project Booklets for Your Own Crafty Gatherings, edited by Kathleen McCafferty (Lark Books) as well as a necklace & earrings set made from one of the projects featured in the book.

So join in the fun and follow 'Indie Fixx' for your own daily dose of Indie! Get something you'll actually look forward to in your Inbox, or should I say: Indieboxx?

Never Leave Home Without It!

My camera isn't very fancy, but I love it, and it's small enough I can tuck it in my purse and never be without it. The rare times I forget to put it back in my bag after unloading pics is when I have kicked myself for missing an opportunity for a great shot! Like the other morning around 6:30am on my way out of Lowe's and the ducks were swimming across a foggy pond with a brilliant white heron in the background. Damn.

I've had a Canon Powershot SX100 for a couple years. I'd love another, namely a Canon Rebel XS DSLR. But my beer budget won't afford my this champagne camera! So imagine how tickled I was to find out Artfire is giving one away...not that I ever win anything but it doesn't hurt to try. And like my sweetie says, you can't win if you don't.

Their contest is really cool too, just share your handmade holiday stories with them. How nice is that? I love a handmade, homespun Christmas, and have always made a lot of the gifts I give. The whole economic meltdown is a great motivator for this option too.

Now the selfish side of me wants to keep this contest to myself, but then I wouldn't be serving my fellow photographers very well if I did. And you don't have to buy anything or belong to Artfire, but I wish you would check Artfire out, and not just because I have a shop there, of course!

The rules are simple and you can enter three times, three ways. So head over to the contest page and get started! You'll have to get a little creative and think back to those stories you wrote back in school: What are your plans for
a Handmade Holiday? Write a blog, share on Facebook and subscribe to Artfire's Newsletter, simple enough and the reward could be way better than getting an 'A'!
