So I've gone back to the beginning and just bid on a Kodak Duaflex on good old Ebay, the Duaflex is the camera of choice for all the cool kids who seem to rattle their stunning TTV pics out at an alarming rate of knots. My bid's in at £15 which I think is reasonable and it's the highest bid by about £5 so far. I don't think I want to go much higher. If I don't get this one, there are two more with end dates of 6th April, but I'm inpatient and 'my one' ends in six hours, so I'll be standing on my head in yoga at the critical moment which is shame, but it will stop me spending too much!
Fingers crossed for me please!

Here are screen shots of the showcases with my work:
Wednesday 26 March 2008
I've resurrected my Roadside Cafe project on a recent trip to Bristol with mum. It's something I'm finding really interesting although it does require rather a lot of Photoshopping which I'm not so keen on, but the images really do need more tweaking than most I take.
To see the whole set, click on Lizzie - I'm sure she won't mind.
I've got a trip to Dorset and Hampshire next week which could be three days, so fingers crossed for lots of new additions to the collection!

When it restarted Etsy was there just as it should be, and worked perfectly all day.
Support didn't get back to me after the first very fast response, which I suspect was a stock reply for people who don't know how to upload pictures to the site. I wonder if they will ever reply again. I bet not.
Anyway, alls well that ends well and I'm happy again!

I don't know if that's how it looks to the rest of the world or if it's just me.
I can't see any of my pictures in my Etsy shop or for that matter anywhere on Etsy which does not make me happy. I can see them from my PC at work but from my lovely iMac at home nothing. I also can't see my Etsy Mini here on my blog or anyone else's pictures from Etsy wherever they are.
I have my 'photo day' tomorrow which is my Wednesday day off which isn't going to be too handy if I can't see what I'm doing!
I've emailed the folks at the HQ and I got a very fast reply which was very impressive but they totally misunderstood my problem and thought that I was confused about uploading pictures which I cracked months ago! Perhaps they couldn't see the screenshot which I attached.
The saga continues.
On a nicer note, the views of my Blurb book have rocketed today. This morning the views for this week were a paltry six and now they are a whopping 260! The only reason I can think is from my PlugBoard plugging which I did this afternoon. Still only one sale though.

I'm too hungry to think about that now, so I'm off for some soup and a bit of a read and then I'll yet again put off doing any (real) work and mess around in and have a play.

Tuesday 4 March 2008
I've just had my first FTP upload accepted and put in place at Imagekind, it's one of my Through the Viewfinder images, I think it's rather nice!
I think I'll add it to Etsy so it's there for my Showcase tomorrow.
Monday 3 March 2008
This is my pricing:
Matted A4 prints $35 which is only £17.60
Unmatted A4 prints $30 - £15.00
Notecard set of four $10 - £5
A5 print unmatted - $5 - £2.50
Crane Museo 100% cotton rag cards - $5 - £2.50
Print Club - $100 - £50 (for one print a month for a year)
I've also filled in the Etsy Cafe interview which sounds like a good bit of self promotion.
I'm very intrigued to see if the Storque Showcase has any effect on my sales.
Peter's also designing me a new logo as I think the existing eyeshoot one is a little to harsh for my taste these days, so hopefully that will be done by the showcase day of Wednesday and I can have it in place and looking lovely.
