a few things I have worked on lately

Sorry I have been so MIA. I've just been super busy, with NO TIME to scrap. We are in desperate need of money, so Randall wanted me to try and see some signs on Ebay. Doubt it's going to work, but it's worth a shot right? Hopefully it will.

Here's the signs for ebay:

Here's some collages I have made to print off as an 8X10. I don't have the resolution the right size though. Any advice on that? What does it need to be for an 8X10?

Hopefully you get some business with the signs. Is there a local craft fair that you can make stuff for? I know they sometimes pop up around Christmas.

The collages are beautiful but I have the say the LO with Ruthie and her dad is perfect. The quote is lovely and the picture is gorgeous!

wow, the Father picture looks like it came from a gallery. That's beautiful! Is that of Ruthie and Randall??? I really like the story board with the rounded corners and edging.

I hope the signs sell fast for you on Ebay! Have you tried Etsy? Their listing fees aren't so high...just a thought. They are beautiful! I'd hang both in my living room! How much are you selling them for, if you don't mind me asking?

I haven't tried Etsy. I need to....just haven't had the time to post them there. I thought I would try ebay first. Randall said $10, so I asked $12 total with shipping. Is that too much? I think so, but I went with what he said.

Yes, that is a pic of Ruthie and Randall. I love it. It could have been better, but I do like how it did turn out! THANKS!

I love your collages, those are neat, as are the signs!

For the pixels, an 8x10 the pixels should be 2400 x 3000

those are really great photos of your kids. Beautiful! :)and I love the signs. Are you selling them with the frame or without? I'm just thinking it may make it more expensive to mail but then again I'm in Canada and postage makes zero sense here. Have you thought about taking requests for what the sign says? Some people may have a quote in mind for their kitchen or living room or something that measn something to them. If you're able to do that, I would like to buy one off you please...in honor of the little souls we've lost. Wayne and I have been talking about putting something up in my scrap room, which will one day hopefully change to a baby room...I have an idea what I want . What do you think? We don't have a ton of money right now but were going to buy a little something anyway so it may as well go to your cause Smile

I think those signs are gorgeous Sadie! I agree with Karen though, by the time you ship, you're only going to make probably like 5 or so on them. Shipping and insurance can get expensive...and ebay now requires sellers to be responsible for items, so without insuring things you can't prove you really shipped something, KWIM??? Anway, I would have raised the shipping rates, but that's just me. You'll have to see how it goes I guess. I bet they will sell though.

ANd that picture of Ruthie and her dad...WOW!!! I love that!!! TFS with us.

Yes, I am selling them with the frame. I thought $12 was too expensive. You ladies really think I should charge more? I feel like a cheap-o. Wink

Yes, I am looking for quotes. I need short ones, but if you have something in mind, I will GLADLY make one for you. Please let me know okay? You can pm me or email me at [EMAIL=sadieruth_7@yahoo.com]sadieruth_7@yahoo.com[/EMAIL] if you want.
