Big Plans

So I haven't been that talky lately. Truth is I've been awfully busy and while I keep thinking about things to post, I rarely get time. Right now I'm in the middle of hanging out with Kevin in our down time and watching an episode of Sex In The City, but the phone interrupted us and now I'm waiting, so I'm using the time.

While I'm not posting much in words, the photos are still coming. I'm actually about to post (as in by monday) some of my most recent Nym photos and I was feeling all up to date on my pictures taken to pictures posted ratio and then I looked my photography plans for the next couple weeks:
- Visiting a friend of Kevin's Los Gatos Bird farm.
- Some planned photos with Athena and a really cool vintage dress I found in a consignment shop in SF last weekend.
- Sonoma wildflowers with Fred and Malaya.
- Birthday trip to NYC
- Birthday visit home - Bloomfield in the spring!
- Cyrus & Athena's wedding
- Max's second birthday

And that just gets me to mid-may. I have a wisdom tooth extraction happening in the middle of all that. So that will at least give me some good photo processing time. Gah! Can you say backlog city!!!!

All worth it though. And I have even more cool stuff lined up this summer too!!

Okay, I'm going to drag Kevin back to the TV for some more r&r!!

Cards Are Here

Okay, I'm using my blog to do some shameless self promoting! My life/My Blog!

Anyway, PhoenixFeather Cards are finally here!! You might have heard about them, or not. Either way they are really cool. And not only are they for sale on my site, but you can also find them at Shady Lane in Palo Alto, one of my favorite stores.

All of this said I'm about to start asking and even begging for your help. I have been working on finding some places to take my cards and catalogs to sell. However I've also been working on making the cards, catalogs, invoices and other such paperwork and therefore haven't gotten a long way with the store search. Plus only having been in the bay area about a year an a half, many of you know stores around here better than I do. So...

What I'm Asking: I'm looking for store names, addresses, phone numbers, even owner names of stationary stores, gift stores that also happen to carry cards, bookstores, markets, restaurants, anything that you have seen has an interest in selling cards. Especially local artist cards.

I'm not so much looking for chains at this point. Just small stores that have one or maybe two locations. And I am mostly looking in the bay area to begin with, because I like the idea of visiting places personally. However, if you live elsewhere, don't let that stop you from giving me the info of stores near you. I DO plan to do a mailing, phone and even sales rep campaign in the next few months.

What's In It For You? Thats right, I have a referral rewards program. For every referral that you give me who also makes a purchase you will receive 1 free card. And then for every 10 cards that store orders in their FIRST order you will receive another free card. You are fairly certain to get at least 2 cards out of every referrer that purchases.

To be fair (and cost effective), only the first person to refer a location will get the rewards. However if you have a unique relationship with a location that can help get me in the door, you may also get the rewards. I will keep track of who gives which referrals and let you know if you sent me something I already have.

So How Do You Give Me Referrals? For now its by email: rachel at phoenixfeather.net. I'm still working on the online catalog and I hope to eventually automate a lot of stuff. But I'm just getting started here and we all love email! Also if you have any questions, PLEASE email me!!!

And one last thing. If you yourself would like to receive one of my print card catalogs in the mail, email me with your snail mail address and I'll get it right out to you. And I promise I won't give your addresses to anyone else!

I think thats it for now! So much to do... so much...

Over The Top Presents

So I haven't been writing a lot lately. Part of the reason is that I've been super busy helping my parents with their accounting for the restaurant before they get their taxes done. Long and frustrating, but DONE!!!

The other reason is that the major thing that I have wanted to post about, and well I've also been a bit overwhelmed about it too. So its taken me a little time to decide just to tell you as simply as possible.

Kevin is amazing in so many ways, and would have stayed that way without ever having given me my early bday present.

Kevin bought me a new car for my Birthday (early cause he didn't think he could keep me from buying something used before then, and was prolly right)! I've been driving her for a little more than a week and I'm still in shock about it.

Meet River! She is a 2005 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS Sport. She is beautiful blue and drives like a dream!! I absolutely LOVE her!! And I'm kind of speachless still and don't know what to say. I had hoped by now I would figure it out but the only thing I seem to be able to do is keep thanking Kevin.

I'm not sure what else to say. Still in shock... going to go drive River and be in shock now. Bye Bye!
