As many of you know, I've been working on branding my business.  I started with a new banner and avi for my etsy shop...

In the mean time, I was reading about branding and such and decided to change up a few more things.

So, here's where I need your help.  I'm looking to redo my business card and can't decide what I like best.  I have been toying with the idea of adding red into the card as I'm going to accent my packages in red that customers receive.  I do have a few favorites, but would love your input! Please leave a comment with which is your favorite and why!

Harvest Season

Wow, nearly a month since I last blogged.  I need to do this more often!

Earlier this my children were told they would get rides on the combine this harvest season.  So once my relatives were out harvesting, we got the call and went to spend an evening on the field.  I was some what leery of this as my allergies tend to act up come harvest season but I had no reaction!  The oldest two children loved the rides on the combine, grain truck, and semi while the younger ones were happy playing in the field and checking on pieces of straw!  Here are a few photos from the evening.  Some of them will be available for purchase in my etsy shop in the near future!

Throw Pillows Anyone?

I came across these a while back but haven't had time to pursue them.  I think these are lovely ways to accent your home and incorporate beautiful photography at the same time.

Winter Themed Pillows

Christmas Themed Pillows

Floral Themed Pillows
The pillow covers are made of 100% spun polyester poplin fabric.  A hidden zipper is in place to allow for removal of the cover from the form.  This allows for cleaning the cover as needed.

Craft Themed Pillows

Fall Themed Pillows

 Animal Themed Pillows

 Train Track Pillow

Valentine's Pillow

Summer Themed Pillows

The photograph is featured on both sides of the pillow.  These are some of my photos I choose to show as a pillow.  If you're interested in them, I do not yet have them listed in my shop but ready to take custom orders!

Pillow covers are available in 16"x16", 18"x18" or 20"x20" sizes.  Forms are not included (due to increased shipping costs).  The pillow forms are available in most local craft, fabric, or home decor stores.

All pre-orders placed by August 9, 2013 will receive their pillow cover shipped for free plus a free gift!   Leave a comment here with a link to where I can get in touch with you or message me at Crystal Gayle Photography
