I offer a few different styles of small wooden boxes in my shop. They have come a long way since I started, but I'm still experimenting around with them. I came up with the idea to transfer my photos onto these boxes by doing a little research on the Internet. I was looking for a way to incorporate my photography into something that people can use. Although I want photography to be the core of my business; finding different ways to connect with people is my ultimate goal.
I was very happy and surprised when I took a handful of boxes to my first markets last year. I got some great feedback and they were flying off the table! Then, once markets were done for the year, I decided to post a few in my Etsy shop. Although I didn't necessarily plan to post them right around the holiday shopping time on purpose, I was selling boxes every week.
Now, I've created a good amount and am ready to see the reaction of people at markets this year. I have some new prints and am also testing out some new styles. I've also been posting them on my Etsy page just about everyday...there's a lot up there now! I'm excited to see what this year brings.
