Web site and Getty

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

Argh… I’ve spent much of the past week loading the product database for the web site.  I have to admit it was a very tedious process and took much more time that I had envisoned.  Because of that, I did limit the photos a bit (realizing just 202 I think of over 600 currently in our ‘card stock’ directory) and I did limit the card stock sayings a lot!!!  Unfortunately, I had to do this just to get the web site up and going in a timely way.  New photos will be added as they are produced and oldies that didn’t make the first cut will be added as time allows.  I will be adding a few card sayings over time; however, if there’s a saying or photos that you need in the meantime, just drop me an e-mail and we’ll get that loaded for you.  I hope to be live on the web within the next week or so.


On another note, on Thanksgiving day I received word that I had been accepted at Getty Images as a contributing photographer as part of their working relationship with Istockphoto.  I’m quite excited and to be honest, a little intimidated by this opportunty, and will be spending some time over the holidays planning on how I’m going to support my istock, Getty and HappyTrails portfolios going forward. 


The show at Eastern High School (12/6/08) was nice.  Now that we’ve been doing shows for a few months, we’re starting to see some ‘repeat’ customers, which I really treasure.  And we’ve gotten to see how other crafters, especially photographers, display their work.  We’ll be working on our display in the next few months, trying to come up with a better backdrop system that doesn’t mean so much toting and manual labor the day of the show for Howard.  Also, maybe something I could set up and take down myself, so I could do shows alone and give him some well-deserved time off from Happy Trails.  As of now, we’re planning on shows in Pitman, Hamilton, Haddonfield, Hope Church, and possibly Collingswood for 2009.. with more to come.   If you know of a good show that might work for us, please drop a line.  Generally, we like to stay in NJ and within 25 miles of our base in Maple Shade, NJ (between the Cherry Hill and Moorestown Malls). 


Thanks for your interest and support, and Happy Trails.
