Here is the Pooh otherwise known as Julia otherwise known as my daughter otherwise known as THE MOST FABULOUS KID IN THE WORLD (really, get in line if you have a #2). Anyways THIS is ONE of the fabulous things she does:
She loves doing this stuff. She does not love college. (BUT SHE IS ALMOST DONE!!). Anyways, she is going on a big trip this summer (more on that later) and I am helping her design 2 sets of business cards, one for aerial and one for her jewelry. This site, http://us.moo.com/ , allows you to put any number of different photos on your cards without any additional charge. So I have been changing up these black and white photos for the back of cards and you pick different colors for the front of each:
I do not have photoshop or anything fancy but I can crop and retouch and change colors etc etc.:
and I can do this kind of stuff:
|weird black and white|
|kind of sepia (I have to take out that blurry line across the top)|
I love doing this project. It makes my heart explode and brings tears to my eyes. I was not a very good mom when she was young. I was single and kind of wild and I had/have lots of "loss" baggage which got/gets in the way. I couldn't wait for her to go away to college. Now I cannot see her enough, do enough, be enough for her, as if I am making up for all that lost love I could have had. But I have to tread lightly b/c it is not her job, and never was her job, to fill me up.
So my friends:
1.) what do you think of the cards?
2.) got any other ideas what to do with these photos?
3.) I also use Picasa so that is available
4.) do you have a a business card site that you have used and like that isn't a fortune
Thanks for stopping by!
