|MARILYN STEPHENS: hand-stitched portrait of her Mum (detail) and experiments with eco-dye.|
I've just recently gotten to know the work of Marilyn Stephens, because she started a blog and also because of Facebook (of course). She does some wonderful stitchery. She also calls us (her FB Friends) Peeps and now I find I can't get Peeps out of my mind. Thus the first third of my headline ... a small shout-out to Marilyn.
As for the second third of the headline - I would very much appreciate some opinions. I've been thinking for a while about trying to sell some of my photographs on Etsy. I'm not sure if this will be a success, but maybe I can increase my chances by gathering opinions and advice from others. Where better to seek out such advice than from my bloggy friends?
I'm starting small, with greeting cards. Testing the water, so to speak. But maybe prints would be better. What do you think?
I've had six photos printed up as greeting cards so far. I'd like your opinions on which one(s) you think is/are the best choice(s). Hopefully you will like at least one of them!
|Six photos I've chosen so far, for greeting cards.|
On to the final third of this post's headline. I would like to offer a gift in thanks for your opinions. Please share your thoughts here, in the comment section. In a few days or so, I will choose a commenter at random and I will hope that the winner will be pleased with their prize, which will be three different cards of their choosing from the greeting cards I have already had printed, plus envelopes.
|These five photos are potential greeting cards.|
I look forward to reading your comments. Remember, here are the opinions I seek:
- Do you think it's a good idea to try selling my photographs on Etsy?
- Which do you think is more marketable: greeting cards or prints?
- Of the six I've already had printed, which one(s) is/are your favorite(s).
- Of the five which I'm considering, what do you think? Yes? No? Which ones, if any, are a Yes?
Your comments will be much appreciated by me. Thanks!
