So I have been thinking about a few things lately . About my book, and the photos I take . I love the calenders and the blog . But whether I am just looking to spread my wings, or all the compliments have gone to my head I am not sure , but I am doing a couple new things in this next while . exercising some options,so to speak.
I will be attending the Mane Event this year, but not with the ApHCC as in previous years .I will be at a booth I am sharing with Drayden Insurance , who are developing a farm/equine insurance parcel . My sister in law Connie and I will be there all 3 days rather than the usual part time presentation I have done i n the past . I will obviously have my farm stuff there, but I will also have my book (and maybe even volume 2 !!) I would love to take Calenders but it is really too late in the year to offer those for sale so I may have one for display but that is it .
One of the new things I am trying is photo cards . I have received many compliments on my photos and so I have taken a few of my favorites and had them made into note cards through Shutterfly
"Are you a Pony?"
Wild 'n free
FV A Shocking Comet
Power Take off
These are the ones I have chosen to start with .Shutterfly has done my Christmas cards the last few years , and they do a wonderful job. The price point is amazing so I am going to try this selection for the mane event .Also have chosen two to do up as mouse pads (Wild n Free , and are you a Pony?)
One other thing I like about Shutterfly is that I can send directly form them if someone orders the cards . Rather than have them come here and then ship out which can be pricey!
I figure seeing as I don't seem to be spending as much time as I would like on my horses (as in riding ) Which I also hope with this new health regime to rectify, I might as well do something with the side benefits I get from being with my horses.
Unlike some of my talented blogger friends ,I don't feel able to book portraits , or photo shoots for other, but I still do love taking pictures so for now I will leave the pros to it . and just puddle along at my pace .
Any and all suggestions will be much appreciated !
