Several of my blog readers probably know that I have a collection of B&W letters that I have taken from nature or cowboy/country/farm items. Although I cannot take credit for originally thinking of this idea, as there are a plethora of places online that one can order these from, I have been trying to do something a little different from the ones I've seen.
For close to a year now, I have been collecting letters with my camera lens, and I have given some of these framed items as gifts and giveaways, but in the back of my mind and in my prayers I have wondered about the possibility of turning this into some kind of side business.
After making this layout for a challenge on TAIF,and posting it in my gallery over at SIStv one of my fave "SISters" over there - KimM - asked about buying a whole set of my letters to put up in her kindergarten classroom!
How cool is that????!!!!
I can answer that...it is WAY cool!
She has been so sweet and encouraging to me throughout the process back and forth over email and because of her enthusiasm - I really think I will get serious and actually set something up to sell these photos.
I really have been praying about something I could do with my photography and I truly feel like Kim has been the source of an answer...I know, I'm getting all deep, but it is so weird sometimes how God can work through others.
I must say my friends and family have been encouraging me all along and I don't want to take anything away from them, but when someone else who doesn't really have a vested interest in my life is so kind and positive to me it just grabbed my attention!
Now, I need everyone's help!
I need a clever name for my "business" - my plan right now is to set up an Etsy shop and see how that goes. So I need something about letters/alphabet/words and nature/country...etc.... something like "farm font" or another cute catchy name!
Please leave me a comment on this post with your ideas - as many as you have - and I will award a RAK (random act of kindness) if I use your idea.
You can guess what the RAK will be, right!? ;)
