i've wanted to take pictures of local vendors at the farmers market for my blog, but i haven't because i've gone through this conversation in my mind...
me: "hi, do you mind if i take pictures of your items/table/store for my blog?"
them: "sure, what blog?"
me: muttering on about my long blog address...
so it's been easier not to take any pictures.
i've thought about it more because i've seen several awesome vendors and i would love to share pictures of them and what they do.
i came up with this simple card to give them IF they ask "what blog?".
(funny/sad story. while taking pictures, i ran over this card with my chair. i'm in the process of making another one.)
i found some easy-to-find scrap pieces of card stock (yay for organized pieces of scrap paper!) and stamped white polka dots with white craft/pigment ink. then i stamped my blog address with this customizable stamp i found at the office supply store (i totally forgot i had it and recently found it while organizing my garage).
i love it because it comes with 2 sizes of letters that include http://, www, fax, email, and so on...
i just sewed a zig zag on to the paper,
punched a cute flower,
rounded out the corners,
punched some holes with my cropodile,
and i was finished!
i like the different sizes and colors. i know it's something that will keep evolving... i want to try it with different color cardstock and thread, different wording and backgrounds. it's kinda fun. my camera case has a little pocket inside and i've already tucked a few of these inside. now i'm looking forward to taking pictures of some local vendors! :o)
