Pint Size Editors’ Picks

February 2, 2010

I was recently contacted on Etsy that Sunny Side Up Studios allowed her two little girls, ages 2 and 5, to put together a collection of must haves from Etsy sellers.

I am honored to say that these two lovely ladies chose my Apples and Pears Custom Photo Coloring book among 11 others for their Etsy Treasury!

Sunny Side Up Studios makes charming little Spool Dolls as well as some super cute hair clips for little girls. Her daughters made some really great choices to fill in the other 11 spots in their Treasury. I hope they get some of these goodies from their list! Check out the rest of their top etsy picks here.

The coloring books have been selling quite well lately thanks to all of the traffic I have received from Ohdeedoh, Apartment Therapy and other fantastic craft bloggers around the web. A lot of customers are using the Custom Photo Coloring books as Valentines Day gifts for the little ones in their lives! I appreciate the help spreading the word on my etsy store.

I’d like to mention now that promoting my etsy store on your blog can earn you a 5% discount on my etsy products so long as the post is made before a purchase and that the post is brought to my attention via megnificentmade@google.com

How To (Share your photos with Megnificent Made)

November 18, 2009

Megnificent Made makes beautiful custom coloring books out of your photos. This post will show Megnificent Made customers how to share their photos with us so we can convert them to coloring book pages.

If you’ve ordered one of our coloring books, you can select 14 photos to be turned into coloring book pages to go along with your fabric book. You can also purchase an extra pack of 12 photos for $4 from the Megnificent Made Etsy store.

To find out more about how to select photos for your coloring book and how the process works, visit this post about Photo Picking!

Once you’ve chosen your photos, you need to get them to Megnificent Made so we can work with them, print them off and send them with your book.

You could send them by email to MegnificentMade@gmail.com, but with 14 photos that could be tedious and difficult to fit into an email. If you choose this route please include what order these photos go with and any other information you think is important.

Flickr is one way of sharing photos I highly recommend. I’ve been using it for years. It has many options for keeping your photos private and safe, is easy to use and navigate, and for these purposes is ideal! Flickr is run by Yahoo! and allows you to upload photos for free. Larger bandwith accounts are available by annual subscription but not necessary. Once you’ve signed up for an account with Flickr and uploaded your photos, make the flickr user MegnificentMade your contact. (Do a search for user Megnificentmade and click “add as contact”) If you are keeping your photos private, be sure to add me as a friend or family so I can access and download your photos to work with them.

Photobucket is another popular option. Once you’re a member here, create an album with your coloring book photos and then email the album to megnificentmade@gmail.com. Be sure that your account allows me to download photos from the album!

Picasa is a google run photo hosting site. I’ve been happy with anything google so I assume this would be no less spectacular! Again, you can make a photo album and share it with megnificentmade@google.com. Be sure your security settings allow downloading!

aside from these website made specifically for sharing photos, you can try a file hosting site. One I recommend is MediaFire. File transfer websites like these allow you to upload large files or multiple files to a website. You are then given a private link that you can send others to download them. If you choose MediaFire, put all of your photographs into one folder and send the download link to megnificentmade@google.com.

Whatever option you choose, please make sure that you specify what order these photos will be going with. Thank you and good luck! Contact me with any issues or questions you have at any time!
