Awesome swap package, and great news!


I participated in the Firecracker Swap from the Pub over on 2Peas....and this is the package I got from my buddy! Pam Taylor (davidandgoliath on 2Peas) is awesome, and she was SO fun to get to know! Lots of stuff I've been wanting. She's on the Design Team for Daisy D's so be sure to check out her stuff! Definitely lots of playing to do on this long weekend.

AND...the BIG NEWS! I have been made a contributing photographer for a new local magazine, Naples Dog! I saw the first issue the other day at Barnes and Noble, and just thought "What the heck, I'll email and see if they are looking for more photographers." She emailed me back, asked for samples (which she loved!) and asked if I was available to shoot the Open House at our local Humane Society today (it was last minute and didn't have a photographer scheduled to cover it). Ericka Basile, the magazine publisher, was SUPER nice and really excited about the magazine. How fun is this going to be?! Just taking lots of photos of dogs!

They might use the black and white photo I just did of Pickle (see a couple posts down) for an upcoming article called "What's his name?". They are going to show the photo to children and ask them what they think his name is. It's not a for sure thing, but she really liked the photo!

I'm still going to have my regular job, too, so looks like I'll be pretty busy!

That is so awesome about the photography gig! Your photographs rock!!! :) Congrats. Just goes to show that it never hurts to contact others in search of a gig. Great package, too. I've been seeing that scalloped paper everywhere, but haven't gotten to try any yet. Have a great weekend!
