Thank You Cards

After completing my 30-day job detail and 5-day job shadow in my headquarters office i wanted to send thank you cards to the various people i worked with while there. The pictures show the front picture, the inside picture, and the picture on the back of the card.
This first card shows various images of Havasu Falls in Havasu Canyon.

I really wanted to make the thank you cards a little more personal and decided to try and use my own pictures for the cards. After browsing around for a bit, i think it was Jen who finally told me i could do the cards online with Costco.
This card shows Falls Creek Falls from Swan Valley, Idaho on the front. On the inside and back are some photos from American Fork Canyon it Utah.

So i spent a few days going through pictures, editing them, and gettig them ready for the cards. You have to get them in sets of 10, so i didn't use all the pictures i wanted to, but because you can put pictures on the front, inside and back, it still ended up working out pretty well. Or at least i thought so.
This card shows a picture of the Subway on the front, and then some photos from Zion National Park on the inside and back.

Some of these pictures had actually never been edited. The pictures from Bryce Canyon, for instance, were my first photo trip with my new camera. That had to have been at least two years ago, and i just barely got around to going through them. Yep, i'm a slacker.
The front photo is Navajo Falls, on the inside are Havasu Falls, Beaver Falls, and Havasu Falls again. All from Havasu Canyon in Arizona.

I actually have quite a few more pictures that are ready to be made into cards, and of course i have quite a few more that i haven't gotten around to looking at yet that could also probably be made into cards (the grand canyon, etc.).
This is Mesa Arch from Canyonlands National Park's Island in the Sky District outside of Moab, Utah. On the inside are some more pictures from Canyonlands National Park of Green River Overlook and Mesa Arch. On the back is Dead Horse Point State Park, also outside of Moab, Utah.

Anyway, if anyone would like some 5x7 folded greeting cards please let me know. They come with envelopes and you can have your return address printed on the envelopes if you want. You can also opt for different text on the back (can't get rid of Costco logo though), no text on back, and no pictures on back or inside. A set of 7 different cards mailed to you is $15. A set of 10 of the same card mailed to you is also $15. I think if you want more than one set it'll probably be a little more shipping.
These pictures are all of Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah.

Other than wedding photos, these are the first photos i've ever attempted to sell, so my pricing is very preliminary. If you are interested, not that anyone will be, i'd get them now before i realize that i'm not charging enough to cover my costs.
These pictures are of Upper and Lower Antelope Canyons outside of Page, Arizona.

Hair Cuts

Does anyone even still check this blog? No? Can't say that i blame you. Anyway, i thought i'd post some pics i took of my hot wife after her recent hair cut.

I don't know what it is, if it's a guy-thing in general, or just a me-thing. But i am not in favor of haircuts.

It's not that i'm opposed to short hair, i guess i'm just opposed to change. Fortunately, for me i guess, Jen didn't get her hair cut near as short as i thought she would. And of course she's still super hot!

Yes, i know, i'm lucky.

I should probably point out that Jen does not think her hair is as red as it may look in these pictures. Of course i have no idea.

i also know i'm very behind on pictures, and i apologize. (Please note i did NOT say i'm a very big behind, although that could be true too...). I do still hope to get the pictures up from this past summer, etc... one day.

Of course Aaron wanted to get it on the photo action as well.
