One of my favorite hobbies is photography. I'm certainly not a professional by any stretch of the imagination (I have friends who are), but I do enjoy taking pictures of my kids, my yard and my adventures in cooking/baking. A few months ago, I decided that I really loved some of my pictures and that they might look halfway decent on the otherwise empty wall in my front living room.
I really love how this wall turned out. One of my favorite photographs is featured in the middle:
Several other pictures are featured on either side, some from our yard and two from our trip to Massachusetts last October.
Every time I walk into this room (which is where my hubby is usually stationed at his computer), I stop to think about how proud I am of these photographs, especially since they were taken using the macro function of my tiny little Canon PowerShot SD1000. I've thought about putting more of them up around the house, but I can't decide where to put them (it would look cluttered to add more in the living room, wouldn't it?). A friend suggested that I should sell some of my photographs. That thought has been stirring around in my wee little head for some time now, but I haven't actually done anything about it.
And then a sign appeared at the entrance to our neighborhood.
Two weeks from today, our neighborhood will be holding a community-wide garage sale.
I've been thinking about printing up more pictures ($0.13/print at Costco!), putting them in frames and setting them out at the yard sale. (OK, let's be honest - I'll be on a plane to Hanoi at that point, so really it will be my husband doing the selling. I'm an awful wife.) I have lots of pics to choose from, such as:
I'm still mulling this around, and haven't decided yet whether or not I want to go to the trouble. What if no one buys them? Would I just put them up around the house? What if someone does want to buy one? How much should I charge?
Does anyone have any experience or suggestions or other general insight that can help me with this dilemma?
