16125My cards are in! I ordered 100 glossy-coated rounded-corner cards. I love the rounded corners, but the square corners inside look a bit odd. That will have to be fixed for next re-order. Also, the glossy coating looks nice, but doesn’t seem to stay on very well. It’s already flaking up on the edges of a few, and they’re not even out of the box yet! I’m glad I didn’t go ahead and get 300 of these. Now that they’re in, I can start ‘advertising’ by stalking local playgrounds and such. I also need to work on getting the site a bit nicer. I have set my rates a little more, and also offer a ‘day in the life’ book servie. I mean, I do one every week. It’d be fun to do DITL’s for other people.

16128Got my Official Photographer shirt for the GA Hummingbird Festival next weekend. It’s two day, so there will be plenty of photos. Those of you in Georgia should all come by. Not only do they offer banding demonstrations (you can even release a real hummingbird), but also kid’s activities, tours of the plantation, music, hay rides.. etc.
