I'm Back!!!!!

Hello! It's been awhile and for that I apologize. But, I have some new and exciting news! I started an Etsy page for some of my graphic design work. You can view it here: I also have a twitter account - LLilyCreations - Check me out!

In microstock news, I have to compile my statistics for the last few months. If I had to guess, I'd say that I've been pretty consistent sales-wise. But I definitely need to get on the ball and upload more pictures. So, check back in a few days if you're interested in how much I was able to earn by doing absolutely nothing. :-)

I'm nearing my first payout in SS and IS. $200 will be nice to have after taking pictures since October. I'm hoping to reach this milestone next month.

I hope everyone is doing good! Happy Mother's Day!

Swag Bucks

I hate promoting a lot of services, but this is one that I have personally had a great experience with...

I know a lot of people out there use to buy their photography equipment. I have been able to snag a couple of free Amazon gift certificates by using the Swag Bucks system. It's a search engine that randomly awards "points" when you search. If those points add up enough, you can turn them in for gift certificates and other prizes.

I just thought I would share. I do a lot of internet searches during the day, so at least now I have the chance to get something back.

If you're interested in learning more, please click below. It's worth a shot - especially if you like free gift certificates!

Feb 2010 Stock Results

Okay, I have to admit that I didn't upload a single image this month (I know, shame on me). But it was my best month ever.

Unfortunately, I'm not going to be available later this month through April, so I will try and post an update when I can. I don't see me really uploading a lot over these next few months, but I do plan on getting back into it when things calm down a bit. Good luck to you all!

January Microstock Results

Here are a few highlights from January:
  • First month at Shutterstock
  • First uploading milestone (100 images) at CSP, 123RF, and SXP
  • Best month ever overall in regards to sales!
  • Still no sales (ever) at CSP.

The next few months are going to be pretty hectic for me so I'm hoping to upload 1-2 more shoots before March that will hopefully hold me over until I can get back into it again. I know I need to consistently upload to SS to keep up the momentum, so that is my motivation!

Shutterstock Portfolio

For those of you who are interested, here are the lucky 8 that were initially accepted:

The approval times have been WONDERFUL!! I was accepted to SS AND had my entire portfolio reviewed within 1 day.

Tonight is going to be spent uploading most of my portfolio to Shutterstock so that I'm all caught up (their approval timeframe is amazing).

Also, I was approved at so I may check that out a little later. Are any of you getting sales yet on DP? I know it's a new company and it will probably take some time to get buyers on board, but I was wondering if anyone was having any success.
