Someone recently left a comment on my site telling me how much they love reading my Blog and how much they look forward to browsing my Shop. I wrote back that my site and background shop are where I feel most creative (something I didn’t even really realize until I said it!).
“Love what you do and do what you love. Don’t listen to anyone else who tells you not to do it. You do what you want, what you love. Imagination should be the center of your life.”Ray Bradbury
I’m a small player in the photography background biz world, but I love what I’m doing and I love sharing it with you. My interest in photography backgrounds has only grown over the last few years and has become a passion. I love to photograph/acquire, develop, name, and describe new backgrounds.
I recently restocked all backgrounds in the Shop (complete with several new designs) and sent out a newsletter letting my subscribers know. That newsletter resulted in a flurry of orders (thank you!) but also left my Shop a little depleted (eek!). And although I’m happy to say it will be fully stocked next week, you don’t have to wait .. there are still lots of backgrounds available and I also put a few on sale (10% off).
I have several brand new designs and a few came out of retirement in the 24″x 36″ super smooth, 15oz matte vinyl. The larger size and smooth matte vinyl is an absolute joy to work with.
And now, a few small gifts to thank you .. from now until December 6th, I’m including a small thank you gift with each order. Gifts will vary, but will be either a set of handmade tags, or a few tiny birch bark stars (perfect for Christmas), or a few vintage clothes pins (perfect for wrapping ribbon around), or .. a surprise : )
I hope you take a minute to stop by my Shop and take a quick browse .. hopefully something will inspire you!
And finally, a note on orders and shipping. As Christmas nears I plan to be away for most of December. The Shop will remain open but the last day for shipping is December 6th.
Any orders placed after December 6th will be shipped in January, however, by placing an order after December 6th, you will ensure your desired backgrounds are available and ready to ship in January.
To my Canadian customers .. I’m spending most of the winter in Arizona and unfortunately shipping to Canada will cost more for the foreseeable future (my apologies!) You can read more about it here A Note on Shipping.
Thank you so much for your support of my little venture.
