The next step.....

I was thinking of a different and better way to put my landscape, animal, fine art, etc prints out there to sell and I found the perfect place for them.  It's a new website that I have, it's got a lot of really great features for me as a photographer and is super simple for you as the buyer.  Interested in knowing a little more about this amazing new venture of mine?  Well here you go.....

The link above will give you complete access to the amazing world of me.  These are not images of people but of places I've been or things I have seen.  All of these images are through the lens on my cameras and seen through my eyes.

Here is a little rundown of how the site works.

On the left side you have a little "all about me" section.  This is where you can follow me, tag me in a FB page, google+ page, pinterest, twitter and stumbleupon. You can send me private messages about my work or questions you might have.  Also join the email list (will let you know when a new photo is added, when something sells, etc.),  The visit website tab will take you to my Looky Lu Photography account that has most of my pictures already.

To view my images and see how to order your prints you would first click on any of my images.  Once this is done it should look like this:

Notice on the right hand side it has many of buying print and greeting card options.  This is the best way to order any of my images.  You can order canvas, framed, just the art print, acrylic, and metal prints.  You can also order greeting cards (which I'm going to be using for christmas this year I think).

Say you want a framed print of this image.  Click on Framed print and it will look like this:

The best part about this website is you can choose the size of print you want, the type of frame, mat board, paper and finish.  The prices do change as you add your selections to your images.

Some of the images you are able to see full-resolution previews.  Those images look like this when opened:

This is only on some of the images where I thought detail was key to the photo.  My mushroom pictures, cotton pictures and any other macro photo will always have the full-resolution preview on them.

As time goes on I will be adding many more pictures.  They might not all be ones I have taken within the past week but they are all taken by me.  I would love to have you follow me on this website as well, if you can, and if you'd like to order anything, please, don't hesitate.  I'm really looking forward to this new venture in my life.  I'm so glad to have you with me!

~Till Next Time~

December 1st.......*sigh*

So today I woke up and was in a good mood.

Then I started some laundry and thought "well, it's not going to be all bad since I did get most everything washed yesterday."  - good mood still there.

Came downstairs and the house is really trashed.  There's no way I went to bed with it looking THIS bad last night *sigh* - good mood dwindling quickly.

Took all the trash out, cleaned the litter boxes, got the kids on the bus and jumped on the computer (instead of cleaning) - at this point my mood changed to excited.

Looked all over online for something to buy on this wonderful Cyber Monday and found NOTHING!!!!  Not one single thing!!!!  What the hell is up with that...... - excited mood changed to blah.

Since it was after 830 I decided to call the Spay and Neuter clinic since I called back in October and got put on the wait list for December.  It is December 1st after all and I had not heard a single thing from them so just checking to see when my turn was up.  They called me one time, the beginning of November, didn't bother to leave a damn message or nothing so how the hell was I supposed to know they even fricking called?!?!?!?!?!  All the spots for December are now full and they haven't opened up January spots yet so it could be January IF I'm even able to take the cats in there to get them fixed.  They only charge $75 to spay a female cat.....$75 is totally doable this time of year.  And if I don't get Stripe fixed so she quits spraying and pissing on everything I'll go totally nuts and give her ass away to someone else.  I will not live with a cat that continues to do that all the damn time.  So I call the Vet and see how much they charge and when......$350 damn dollars and they can get her in tomorrow!  How the hell am I supposed to pay $350 dollars at Christmas time.  This totally killed any chance of a good mood I had left.......Such bullshit! - blah mood changed to depressed with a quickness.

So now I have a trashed house, a $350 stupid ass vet bill I have to pay because the Spay and Neuter clinic is such a pain in the ass, a $400 plumbing bill but drains now work great again, a fear the kids aren't going to get their amazing Christmas this year because money just keeps flying out the fricking door, a husband that is gone more then he's home, a house I have to decorate for a stupid holiday I don't even want to come now, a massive headache and a total feel of dread.........

Bah Hum Bug
