Thanks to Teresa Schmidt from Photography By Teresa for sharing her image using the "Perfect Vintage" mini drop. Teresa did not stop there! Also shown is the Infant Tattered Lace, Auntie's Pearls and our Faux Wood Flooring.
I need photographs!!!!! It is the last day for our Mini Drop Background Sale! I would love to use your photos as our Facebook Profile Photo. Starting at noon, I will change the photo every hour with one of yours. If you have a photo using one of our backgrounds, email it to me. If your photo is chosen, it will be put on our page with a shout out. Please crop your photos to 640x480 when you email it to me. firstname.lastname@example.org. I can't wait to see what you've got!
I need to do a "shout out" to our friends at Chicks Who Click. I apologize in advance for anyone I forget or botch their name. Cindy Crofford (she is way cooler than the other Cindy Crawford), Lori (her son is in the Airforce and she is amazing!), Heather Dillon, Kira J, Kay Eskridge & Todd Eskridge (sorry Todd!), WHCC, Jennifer from West Virginia, Susan Michal, Vicky Taufer (I'm in love with her baby girl) and the new president of PPA Don Dickson and his first lady. Check out Kira J's blog. Besides being a phenomenal photographer, she is a great cook!
As we chat, I am currently on a plane headed for Chicks Who Click. We are so excited to spend time with such talented photographers.
This week the special is for our tiles. Our background tiles are each 20 inches square. We sell the tiles individually but recommend purchasing nine. We fee like that makes a nice 180x180 square wall. This size is perfect for newborns, sitting babies and walking toddlers. This size allows you to use mini furniture and still be able to stay within your shooting area.
They are light weight, super-thin and easy to use. Hang them from any wall or foam core with tape, velcro or glue. We have done our tiles a lot of different ways. Here are a couple:
You can lay them down (face down) and make the size of square you want. Use packing tape to stick the tiles together and come half of an inch over the front. Go vertical and horizontal across the tiles. This makes a wall of tiles that can be leaned up against another wall (without even having anything behind it). We even folded them up like this and shipped them to a client that needed the tiles right away but we were out of them. She didn't care that they were used, she just needed them fast! I wish I knew the customer's name...I'd give her a shout out!
Another way to put them together is on a large backing (wood, plywood, styrofoam). They can be attached with velcro, packing tape, duct tape. The duct tape would be a more permanent.
Coordinating with this week's special, the Petal Rug is a great way to add some texture, color and style. We use the rug as a cover for your favorite chair, a pillow cover or over a beanbag. We like to use the Petal Rug as a cover for a pillow because it gives it a better shape. It is just firm enough to give the pillow shape while staying soft enough for your little one. The Petal Rug comes in multiple color and is $58 for one week! Check them out:
