Holiday Special

Late last night I took a Pledge to buy only handmade items this holiday season! People from all over the world are signing up. I was number 7391, the last time I checked the list was up to 7,474 pledges! I like the Video that promotes the handmade movement. So if you are feeling inspired to try something different this year….GO SIGN UP! The pledge list itself is great resource for finding artists and crafters to buy gifts from. Many of the people on the list have a link to their blog, website or Etsy shop. Here is where I will be doing some of my holiday shopping this year; Buy Olympia, Nikki McClure, Isabella’s Comfort Pacs, Orange Peel Enamel, and Michelle Caplan-Collage Artist.

Inspired by this movement I am offering a 20% discount on all products and packages to be given as a gift (remember it’s o.k. to gift yourself). The special includes Portrait Sessions and Custom Mixed Media Collages. You can present the gift certificate to the lucky person and they will contact me to set up a portrait session after the holidays. This offer is good for gift certificates purchased before 12.31.2007. Portrait sessions include 2 hours of photography, unlimited digital images, and 2 rolls of film. All edited images will be hosted in an online gallery. Prints are available for purchase through my website. A dvd with the edited images will be available 6 months after the photo shoot. Standard Portrait rate is $375, with the discount it is $300! 

Also available are my beeswax photo collages (see samples) Each piece is custom created using layers of photographs, paper, paint and beeswax. This would be the perfect gift for my past or future clients. I prefer to work with my own photographs but I am open to creating collages from other images as well. The photo collages range in size from 8×10 to 16x 20. The standard price for an 8×10 is $225 with the Handmade Holiday Discount it is only $180! Please contact me for info on larger sizes and pricing.

Just to keep it interesting I thought I would offer an extra special Handmade Combinaton Package! The package includes a full Portrait Session and a Custom Collage (8×10). The collage will be created with a photograph from the portrait session. The standard rate for this combo is $600 with this special offer the package is just $450! This offer expires 12.31.2007. Gift Certificates available!
