Birthday Sale

Posted on April 11, 2013 by Leslie Nicole | 11 Comments

 

I love April! Not only is next week my birthday, but it's also French Kiss Collection's birthday! I had started selling textures on my Zenfolio site under my own name and writing about them on my own blog (and the now defunct Photo Artist Textures.) After around 5 months, I felt like the textures needed their own home and their own name. Two years ago, in April, the name French Kiss came to me as I'm in France and I put a lot of France into my work. I also like the idea of giving photographs "a kiss" of texture. 

Two years ago when French Kiss was born, I was a little unsure it would work. I had worked non-stop for a year on developing textures and still wasn't making any money to speak of. I wondered if I was crazy selling textures when there are plenty of freebies out there. I decided to have faith and follow my passion. Faith in following my passion and faith in the photography/artistic community. The first year wasn't easy, but I do now make my living from this store. 

I wanted to share that with you, because I sometimes have emails from people wishing they could make a living from their photography/art or a related business. I've been there! Work hard. (Really hard!) Follow your passion. Learn constantly. Trust in the universe. Give thanks.

Here's a big kiss to you artist souls! Thank you for allowing me to be a resource to your creativity.

Hi Kathy,

I tried to be as clear as I could on the sale times. I’m looking for a way in the future to put a count down clock or something on the site. :-)

The sale starts at 8:30 AM Thursday morning, Paris timezone.

See you soon,

thanks, Leslie

Hey! Happy Birthday! I guess I’m a little confused? I’ve been waiting for the sale to start and right now it’s 1:04 am April 18th in Paris and the prices on the textures are the same as they were a couple of days ago? Are these already the sale prices? I can’t wait to order some things. Thank you!
