52 Photos Project

Week 1—the prompt:
What are you beginning right now?

I've started making cards with some of my photos. 

Lots of different sorts of images, but these—
peonies in various stages of their life cycle—definitely 
seem to go together. (The idea is to sell them, but I haven't 
figured that part out yet. Perhaps I need to "own" them first.)

  2. Hi Alexa: I'm just joining in to Bella's group and checking out the other contributors. Would you mind sharing the company that you are using to print your cards? They are quite lovely and I'm wanting to do the same, but as gifts for friends. Any thoughts you can share would be appreciated! Thank you!

    1. The cards aren't "printed"—I order 4x6 photo insert cards from studiostyle.com and prints of my photos from snapfish (sometimes they have great deals), and put them together myself.

  3. Just joining Bella's group and comforted to see someone else asking the question I am about "owning" my photos.

  5. they are beautiful!! very worthy of going out into the world to be shared.

    it's a shame to keep them locked up isn't it, we should send them out into the world.

    good luck on your next steps, looks like you already took a big one getting them done.
