Ahh! I love these so much! You should DEFINITELY open up a shop. Etsy or something. I will DEFINITELY buy one. Smiley

Gosh they are selling out of these things SO FAST. They've already done like 3 reprints! I had to put in another reprint request because now I want it on Natural.

Threadless is earning like a million karma points for itself. <3

Wow, you have so many products!

I agree about the funny descriptions, lol.

I don't know too much about Etsy, but it'd be nice if there was a category view, like if I wanted to look at all the earrings at once.

About the photos, I think brightening them would be nice. If you do decide to reshoot, I recommend shooting them either outside, or by a really bright window, without flash. Natural sunlight is the best light to work in, because flourescent lights throw off all the colors. It's better to start with the best photo you can get, rather than trying to fix everything later in Photoshop. Also, check if your camera has a macro mode (close focus); it's usually the little tulip/flower symbol. I think that'd help for taking pictures of your jewelry. Hold the camera super still, or the images will come out a little bit blurry: brace the camera against something, or even better, use a tripod.

Okay, sorry about the photo Nazi-ness, but I just really like to help people take better pictures, and using flash is the devil. Smiley

Good luck to you and your sister, your products are all really cute!

Hugh: those are really good! I can definitely see the trompe d'oeil effect you're going for. I imagine it would take hours to paint each one. They'd look so cute scattered in gardens.
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Selling on a blog vs. actual web site on: September 14, 2005 11:13:13 PM
I think selling on an actual website would be better than selling on a blog.

Because to me, a blog is more like a daily/weekly post of links or whatever. Some people use blogs as diaries (like me). When you say selling stuff on a blog, I imagine it'd be easier to do if you've built up a large audience of daily readers already, and then introducing your products.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that a website dedicated to selling your products would be more beneficial than a blog that moonlights as a store. I don't know if that made sense, or maybe I misinterpreted your question completely.

But, who knows? It's definitely possible to do both! Smiley

9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Re: Which Digital Camera? on: April 13, 2005 01:33:47 AM
I love Canon powershots. I used to have an A70. They are so durable, and the manual mode is really cool (plus it had aperture priority and shutter priority modes. these 3 modes are not often found on consumer level digicams!)

However, the bulk of it got to me, and I sold it to my cousin. Then I bought a Canon Powershot SD200 (it's one of the digital ELPHs) It's much smaller, lighter, and fits a lot better in my purse. However, I really do miss the manual modes. Amazon has got it for about $260 right now, I think.

The SD200 is fabulous. I can't get over how sleek it is. It's very sexy. One drawback however, is that I've noticed a purple fringing (chromatic aberrations) is kind of common with this camera.

The movie mode works really well (pros: can record for as much as your memory card holds, fast frame rate. cons: fixed zoom and fixed focus once you start recording). I use it to make the video posts on my blog.

I don't know if these links have been posted already, but these two sites are worth checking out for camera reviews:

okay, sorry for posting a novel, but I'm a big geek and I love photography. Smiley
