I‘ve got all kinds of neat stuff going on over at my Etsy shop for Mothership Photography! I finalized my first sale this week — cool, eh? To celebrate, I’ve got new products and a couple of special deals.

First, in addition to fine art prints, I’ve also created greeting cards for sale now, made from some of my favourite flower images from this summer. Right now, I’m offering sets of four 5×7 matte cards and sets of six 3.5×5 mini cards, all blank inside,
and a set of five thank you cards made from one of my favourite baby-toes images. Check ’em out — I’ll wait here until you get back!

As a part of my grand opening special, I’m offering free shipping worldwide for my first 25 sales.

And, last but certainly not least, as many of you know October is breast cancer awareness month. Breast cancer seems to be haunting many corners of my life these days: two sweet friends have recently conquered it, one colleague is fighting it, a few friends of mine have lost their mothers to it, and one of my best friends may lose his sister to it. Cancer terrifies me; I lost my Granda to colon cancer when I was nine. So while it’s not much, from now until the end of October, I’ll be donating 50 per cent of my profits from all of my Etsy sales to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Let me know what you think — you guys have given me some great feedback so far, and I appreciate it! Stay tuned, there’s more to come!

Love the baby toes thank you cards. Almost makes me want to have another one. Almost.

Great idea for the Breast Cancer donation. When the strike is finally over, hopefully I will be able to come over and shop.

Cards are such a great idea Dani. I’m sure they’ll do well. Also, never ask me what I think cause then you have to listen to it! 🙂

So here’s what I think: Lots of people like to give cards as gifts … some people are hard to buy for (i.e. grandmothers), and some people you’d like to give a small gift to that isn’t too personal but shows your appreciation. I find it makes a big difference in my buying decision if some of the profit goes to a charity that I feel strongly about or the recipient feels strongly about. If you are able to add a note to the effect of “50% of all profits from these cards are being donated to the Canadian Cancer Society,” you might make the purchase even more appealing.

Thanks Julies!

While I had the info about the donation in the main shop announcement, I added it to each individual item, too. Thanks for the idea!

That is amazing Dani. I am so happy you have found such a wonderful creative outlet. I hope to find one for myself some day.
