NEW SHOP!

via Twitter

Hi!
Or, as my Chinese Immersion students would say, Ni Hao!
I have some exciting news!!!! I have officially opened my Greeting Cards Etsy Shop! I have been wanting to do this for some time and I have finally made the jump to just do it. I posted on Instagram last week about starting to sell these cards and I was absolutely blown away by the support that people gave me!

What is the shop? Now, I am not sure if this Etsy shop will succeed (oh, but I hope it does!), but I figure that I love to take nature photography and this is a great jump start into sharing one of my hobbies with others. I am, by no means, a professional. And I like to stick to photographing nature when I'm out hiking or thinking. I love to photograph people, but I definitely don't feel comfortable selling my work for that. This shop, though, is my nature photography that I have taken and transferred onto greeting cards. They are blank and are awesome gifts to give to friends and other little knick-knacks. I don't know about you, but I love writing in blank, quality cards.

How this shop came to be: My mom, dad, and husband have been bugging me for about a year to start this shop. They have all incessantly told me that I have such a good eye and that I should share my photography with friends and family. So, I'm doing it. And if it fails, it's okay. Because, guess what? I can just go back to making these cards as a hobby. Also, life is full of failures, but I may as well try.

How can I help? By purchasing some cards, of course! You can click on "Sierra's View Photography Cards" in the header at the top of this blog or on the picture to the right that says Etsy Shop.
But even more than that, you can
 1. Make my shop a "favorite".
2. Give me a 5 star rating on my Etsy shop.
3. Also, if you are interested in sharing on your social media sites (Instagram, Blog, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, etc.), I would love to give you some cards for free to try out! Just let me know.
4. And, lastly, just share! Share my posts on Facebook of me selling my cards!

I am starting to question if I am crazy or just feeling really motivated these days, but I have a whole lot of things going on in my life (if you have noticed that I haven't written in awhile-- this etsy shop, teaching full time, getting my master's, writing new core and advancing my teaching career, singing an intense and wonderful choir, church calling, exercise/health stuff, other social and family stuff..), and I will expand on this on another post here in a few days, but I want to do this and I am tired of waiting around for it to happen!

Here are some of the photos that I am making into cards!!

  1. Well folks, this is probably the last video you thought you’d see from me today. It alternativephotographyinc.com has virtually nothing to do with my pushing around sliders and teaching you fancy new editing techniques.
