Do you Etsy?

Have you been to before? Its a website marketplace where you can buy and sell handmade items, and I just love it! Ever since I was little, I have loved creating – I used to get a kids table at the local craft fairs and sell little magnets and popsicle stick ornaments, lol. I used to pimp my friendship bracelets on the playground. I used to scrapbook and love to collect and organize little metal pieces, papers and “stuff”. And now, I’ve moved onto new mediums with my photography and graphic design.

I was watching Oprah the other day and a guest was saying that at six years old, your personality has formed and you can look at yourself as an adult and see the same qualities in yourself that you had as a child. Oprah said she was a “busybody” and now she is hosting a talkshow – and I was a creator, and now I am blessed to be creating everyday and doing what I love. 

Anyways, I digress. Do you Etsy? What shops do you love? Or do you have one yourself? I have a little shop, which has a few beaded things in it right now, I’m getting into a new hobby for sure :)  I’m mostly just there to shop! So email me or leave a comment, and let me know who you love to ogle at Etsy! 

Lindsay Silsby - Oh goodness…..I have a MILLION Etsy shops that I love and BOY do I Etsy! The gnome hats by PUMPKINHAUS are to DIE for…I use them in my photography ALOT and anything that House of Telsa has I probably own….one of my most cherished Etsy shops! I also just discovered Nella Designs which has the cutest prints EVER! Check them out….they are all addictive!

Leslie Brown Photography: Branded

Some of my latest photography branding design. Some of you may remember the logo I created last year for Leslie. This project took the Leslie Brown Photography logo and expanded it into a set of materials that Leslie can use at trade shows and to reinforce her brand with clients. I created letterhead, a gift certificate, a notecard, a postcard and a 5×5 trifold with a pricing insert.  Thanks Leslie, it was great to work with you again! 



Price Adjustment

Just a quick note to let you know that 2009 pricing has been posted, and there are a few changes. Clients that are in my queue and have their deposit in are locked in at 2008 rates. The biggest change was to the Kit n Caboodle package, I exchanged some items to include my most requested pieces.A few additions to my offerings include custom splash pages and favicons. 

Sweetheart Valentine Wallets

Have you planned your Valentine’s Day Promo yet? Want some cute photo Valentines for your kids? My newest set of valentine wallets are here! Introducing “Sweetheart” Valentine Wallets. These went over very well last year! 

This set of 8 minis are sized as a standard wallet. Files are layered so you can change/add text, colors and customize as needed. Price is $35 for the set. Find this item available with an instant download in my design store, or send a paypal for $35 to Taslim AT bringtolightphotography DOT com with Sweetheart Valentines in the subject. 










Holiday Hours

Well, its that time of year again! I’ve been so busy this year that the holidays seemed to have snuck up on me. I will be closed December 24th-December 28th, and back answering emails and delivering design concepts on the 29th. I am making the trek up to Vermont to spend the holidays with my family, so I am making every effort to have project ends tied up by the 23rd, but some will be suspended until my return. Happy Holidays everyone!

Thank you clients! I have been blessed with lots of design projects during these past few months, and I am booked for the remainder of the year!

Trifold Design: Nicole Thomas Photography

I’ve just finished a colorful and modern trifold for the wedding branch of Nicole Thomas Photography. I also designed a matching pricing insert, the perfect way to present pricing when you need to, or leave it out when you want. I took advantage of WHCC’s printing capabilities and designed the inside panels as one full spread.

Thanks Nicole!



Sherry - those are gorgeous…great work

Pitambharadharaya - Great to get the opportunity to check out what other people are doing.
