If you sang this line, we will get along juuuuuust fine. Thanks so much for taking the time to visit! Allow me to introduce myself, and attempt to summarize what it is that I’m doing here in the Blogosphere. (Key word is attempt. Those of you who know me know that I tend to write short novels for e-mails and my voice mails more closely resemble Shakespearian soliloquies than “call me backs.”) Runs in the family. Alas, that is I. Who am I you ask? Kathy… a not so typical Photographer. Greeting card business enthusiast. Multi-passionate entrepreneur. Idea girl. Dreamer. Lover of life. Happy. Most days my brain is racing so fast with ideas and things I want to do, that I feel I’m too passionate for my own good. Who am I not? Perfectly organized. A fantastic housekeeper or gardener. My shoe collection would make Carrie Bradshaw cringe, and I get more excited about a good vintage score at Frenchy’s than I ever would about a Prada purse. Don't get me wrong, I can appreciate a fine set of heels like the next girl, but I just don't believe we have to spend the family fortune to look put together. I’m a pretty simple gal who believes there is a time and a place for everything. Including but not limited to: gummy bears, boxed wine, Zoodles, Mr. Noodles and occasionally (okay... very occasionally) Beefaroni. There, I said it, and frankly it feels quite good to get it off my chest. So it's no secret that I am fairly passionate, and put a lot of heart and soul into the things that inspire me. That means in business and in life because I feel like the two are really intertwined anyway - "How you do anything is how you do everything!" I believe that Confucius was right when he said "Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it". I have realized over time that I can't help but see beauty. It is a problem at times. (Forget texting and driving, one shouldn't be permitted to "see beauty", or potential photo session locations for that matter, while driving.) I digress. When beauty jumps out of the world at you, it is easy to become passionate about photography - for me, it is a way to relay to others the beauty that I see in my minds eye. Life is short, this we all know. We are meant to enjoy it, appreciating and celebrating those who are important to us, in this lifetime. This blog is an immediate outlet for me to express and humour myself (and those who stumble by) attach sneak peeks of the happenings here at Legacy Junction Studios, offer fun contests and specials, and chronicle what’s going on in my crazy world. Feel free to sniff around - just promise not to laugh at my wordiness, okay? I truly can't resist! If you know me, you KNOW that is true! (To thine own self be true, no?) Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m so humbled and flattered that you’ve visited and would love to know! You’re welcome and encouraged to leave comments, and say hello!


Good news!  Where my photography services are confined to a pretty limited geographic location (as I have yet to figure out how to clone myself, or fly Super Mario-style) the greeting card and gift company that I am a marketing distributor for, allows me to service an International clientele.  That's right, gotta love the magical land that is the interwebs.  Myself as well as my team, are able to work with prospective clients worldwide, and also forge new business partnerships with like-minded, value based, forward thinking entrepreneurs in Canada, United States, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Ireland and the UK.  If you are intrigued, feel free to sniff around my website www.thebusinessofkindness.com or fire me an e-mail.  So in continuation of my previous post, there is one more thing I can help you with pertaining to Mother's Day (regardless of where you live!)  You guessed it. Your card.  Sometimes we don't bother with the card, for any number of reasons.  Didn't get to the store.  Got to the store, but didn't get to the post office.  Couldn't find the right one, and when you finally settled on something, you felt it was ludicrous to spend $5.00 or $6.00 for a single card and couldn't bring yourself to do it. You got her a gift so you didn't think a card was that important.  You decided to make one instead, couldn't find the markers... oh look, a squirrel... oops, I forgot.  Yadda yadda yadda.  We've ALL done it at one time or another.  Made the excuses. Especially if you don't live in close proximity, and forethought was required.  That's why I am reminding you NOW, while there is still time!  Contrary to what you might think, it's probably the most important part of your gift... if you do it right. And I'll reveal a little secret - doing it right doesn't take much... really, only speaking from the heart and a bit of effort.   

I know you despise going to the drug store or mall and scouring the greeting card racks for the perfect card, because -- truth be told -- so do I.  Then it's the hunt for a pen... and a stamp, and trying to get it to the post office on time.  Sometimes it feels like a lot of effort for the gesture, which is why it's easy to talk yourself out of giving a card.  It doesn't have to be a miserable experience, in fact it can be downright awesome - thanks to the program I am going to introduce you to.  I am so passionate about this that I want to offer you the opportunity to experience creating and sending your own cards using this incredible service.  With your own two hands (well, your computer! Even better!) but using your very own brain power, with your very own words and and your very own photos.  There are upwards of 17,000 card templates to choose from, and many more amazing features.  Believe me when I say that this is something incredibly meaningful, something that she will treasure.  Best part, you can do this all from the comforts of home without ever leaving the house.  Once you create your card online, the company then PRINTS, STUFFS, STAMPS, and SENDS your card for you -- anywhere in the world.  Yes, in the mail, as this is a real, physical greeting card like the ones shown in the picture below.  Send it directly to her doorstep, or send it to yourself to give to her in person.  It's a beautiful blend of High Tech + High Touch, and will forever change the way you send greeting cards and gifts.  (Father's day is not far behind, you know.)  Did I mention that these cards cost far less than store bought greeting cards, are twice as personal and about a thousand times more convenient?  What Netflix is to movies, and what Amazon is to books, THIS is to greeting cards and gifts.  And the best part is, you are the creator.  So kick off your shoes, slap on some comfy pants (nobody is above comfy pants) grab a beverage, and stay a while.
