I Love the Pioneer Woman!!

The Pioneer Woman has to be one of my fav. blogs.  She has all these amazing recipes plus, she is a great photographer!  Oh, and she is amazingly funny! 

On the photography part of her blog, she has started to do assignments for her readers to partake in.  You can post your images in her Flickr group and she will then post some of those pictures on her blog.   A few months ago, she posted my Aspen Leaves in the Wind print on her blog for the assigment "Fall Bokah":

That was very exciting to see my print on her blog!

Her latest assignment is Black and White.   So, I entered my Love is a Beautiful Word print.  I woke up this morning to see it on her blog!!!   Its down towards the bottm of todays entry. 

This has been a wonderful Firday so far!!!!

Bookmarks, bookmarks and more bookmarks!!!!

I really love the photo bookmarks in my shop.  So much so, I added 11 new ones today....yes ELEVEN!!!  I  added all kinds including the one shown above. I did more flower ones, one of a Ferris wheel, one of some wine corks and so on.

The bookmarks are so pretty.  They are mini works of art.  Its a useful mini work of art too!!  :)   They also make a great gift for anyone who likes to read.

Stop on by and check them out.  :)

Other than the bookmarks, nothing else is new around here.  Just finishing up Christmas and wondering how I will wrap my husbands gifts so he has no clue what they are. He is good at guessing his gifts usually!  lol

I love coffee.  I really can't seem to get through the day w/o a cup....or two.  I also love Espresso drinks.  My two personal favs are White Chocolate Mocha's and Pumpkin Lattes!!  Yummy!!  I seriously make the pumpkin lattes all year long!!  lol

Through my love of coffee, I have come up with a few photo ideas. I think I am going to start a coffee and tea series....sort of like my wine art series.  The picture above is actually one I took back in Feb! I ran across it again the other day and fell in love with it again.  This is when the creative juices started to flow!  I hope to work on these other ideas soon!

On other notes.  Can you believe 2009 is almost over?!?  This year went by so fast.  I know 2010 will be a big year for me and my family.  My son is growing up faster than I could have ever imagined.  He will be 3 in March.  My daughter will be 5 in July and starts Kindergarten in the fall of 2010!!  How is it possible I will soon have a Kindergartner??  She is 4 going on 14.  LOL  We also hope to take then to Disney World next year as well.  They will have a blast!!  :)  I love seeing life through their eyes!

I love this new print. I love how its a flower (my fav!) and a bit abstract too.   I also used a texture on it (another one of my fav. things) to give it a unique and artistic look!    I took this photo well over a year ago at my In Laws house here in Colorado.  The sun was setting in the background and the wind started to blow and soon after, the dandelion started to fall apart.  I just love how soft and delicate dandelions are!

As you know from my last post, I am doing a sale this weekend.  20% off just about everything and prints and ACEOs (mini prints) all get free shipping too!!

Free Print Week

This week and through Nov 30th (cyber Monday), I am doing a Buy One Get One Free print sale!!!!  I am very excited about it and I hope others will be too.  :)  Check out my shop for more details. 

I have also added a few new prints as well. The one in this post is one of my new prints.  That was taken this week at the Botanical Gardens.  I got to meet up with a local photographer (who is is her shop) who sells on Etsy.  We got to get out of the house, Child free for a little bit!  Very fun.  Even though the Botanical Gardens was pretty bare, we got a few pictures.  Most of mine are more abstract shots. 

On a side note, I hope that everyone has a wonderful week and  hope that those of you who are celebrating Thanksgiving here in the US have a wonderful day!!  I plan to hit up my In-Laws house for a yummy meal!  :)

ACEOs - Mini Prints

I have been asked several times if I offer ACEO's in my shop.  They are basically mini prints and measure 2.5x3.5inches.  They are like fine art trading cards!  You can hang them on your wall or put them in a book or pretty much do anything with them that you want!

I have 9 different ones in my shop right now (one of which is the picture above).  You will have to keep a look out if I add more!  ;)  haha

Aside from the ACEO's nothing too new has been going on.  I have been busy trying to get ready for my Craft fair thats in about  a week and a half.  I might be doing a second one as well on Dec 5th at a School in Denver.

Mmmm, Wine

I really love husband - not so much!  I guess that means more wine for me!  haha

Back in Feb, my sister-in-law gave me this great idea to take some pictures of wine bottles.  She wanted some for her kitchen.  I really loved the idea and I loved working on the project.  I came out with 6 wonderful wine art photographs that are now listed in my shop.  The print above is another shot I took last week.  I expanded on the idea and bought some wine corks.  I had this idea in the back of my head for months!  I am glad that I got to work on the idea and here it is....its come to life!!

I have one other cork print that I have worked on that I will add to my shop tomorrow.  Plus, I have a few other ideas that I hope to work on this week.

Keep an eye out....but I'm sure I will update here anyway!  :)

Hoooot Pink!

A new addition to the Amelia Kay Photography Etsy shop!  I saw this beautiful flower at the Botanic Gardens.  Such a beautiful and bold shade of pink!

Today, I have also signed up for a Craft Fair.  Its my very first craft fair and I am so excited.  It will be held in Brighton, Colorado on the Sat. after Thanksgiving (Nov 28th).  I can't wait to see what it will be like to be a seller at a craft fair.  I will pass along more details for those of you who are locals and would like to come see me in person!  Would love to have you come out!!

Some New Prints

I have added a few new images to my shop.  This one below is one of the three new images.   Its called Layers Mirrored Image.  The reason its called that is because it matches the new print Layers.  I love these flowers even though I am not sure what kind of flower it is!!

Another new print I have is from the county fair we went to a few months ago. I took a picture of a Moving Ferris Wheel just as the sun was going down.  I love going to the county fair and the kids had such a blast going on the various rides!

Lastly, I have decided to try my hand at selling some print sets. I already have one print set listed of some black and white flowers, but this time, I added a set of 3 Wine Art prints.   Oh, how I love wine!!

My next mission is try try and figure out how to add more than one image to this new blogger editor.  Hum.... Maybe I will just stick to the old blogger editor even though this one looks nice too.  lol  :)

Coming Back To Blogger

After the last 6+ months on a different blog hosting site, I have decided to come back to blogspot. There are a few reasons, but I am excited to be back! :)

My shop on Etsy has been going well. I love selling over there and I am still so excited that there are people out there who are willing to invest their heard earned money on my photography. I am extremely thankful for each and every sale!!

I am working on making changes to my shop. I have a few ideas that I want to work on over the next few weeks. One was to offer more than 8x8's and 8x10's. So, I have starting offering larger prints!

I hope to get a larger blog following on here. I hope to offer a blog give away sometime in the next few months, so keep an eye out for that! :)

Also, this past week I was so thrilled to be on The Pioneer Womans site. If you don't know who she is, she is a beautiful and very funny woman with a popular blog. She has a cooking section, a photography section (!!!), and a home and garden section. I just love her blog! But, she features some fall bokeh (picks with a blurry background) on her site. You can find me here....towards the bottom! Its my Aspen Leaves In The Wind print!!

Ok, enough of that! :) I had thrown in a few of my newest prints that I have added to my shop. I took these last week at the Denver Botanic Gardens. I love that place!! Just love it! Its different every single time I go and its always so beautiful!

Grass Curls

Flowers Of Fall

Curly Q

Oak Leaves

Thank you for reading and I hope to see many more of you again!!

A New Blog To Go With A New Business

Just this past week, I have started up a Fine Art Photography business called Amelia Kay Photography. I am very excited about this new adventure in my life.

I have loved photography pretty much all my life. As a kid, I used to want to be a photographer for National Geographic. That dream didn't come true (well, not yet at least!), but starting up my own photography business is still realizing a dream.

Over this past year, I realized I am more of a fine art photographer rather than a portrait photographer. I found myself really loving taking pictures of flowers and then turning those pictures in to art. I love to use textures! Just love textures. I feel like they give a whole new depth and warmth to the pictures. I also love black and white photography and/or giving my pictures an antique look.
Currently I am selling on Etsy. Soon, there will be a web site to go along with that. I also hope to expand beyond the Internet (I am going into downtown Denver to check out an Art Gallery that contacted me about doing a show!!)

My current store is located at . But, keep an eye out on . At the moment, it will take you to my Etsy shop.
