grandopening-ambassador

Happy weekend, chic friends! We’ve been working away to bring you the new bluebird chic online shop, and it’s finally here!

To celebrate the grand opening, use coupon code GRANDOPENING to receive 30% off your purchase! It’s the perfect time to pick up something for your favorite photogra-mama, or maybe even yourself.

Either way, have a peek around the new shop – maybe read a bit of our story, or see how you can “share your chic” with us!

I couldn’t be more excited for this chapter ahead!

Even awesome things come to an end, and these ruched camera strap covers have had an amazing run! As we push for new horizons and the opening of the brand new shop, there are some things that won’t be making that journey with us.

The sale will run while supplies last or through Friday, April 17, and then they’ll be gone forever – so if you’ve had your eye on something, be sure to grab it!

And be sure to stay tuned for the exciting new things we have on the way!

get a head start on mother’s day giving (or receiving!)

I don’t know about you, but there’s something about Mother’s Day that always seems to sneak up on me each year. So to make it easier for you (and me!) to remember those special mom’s in our lives, I’ll be sharing a couple of sales over the next few weeks.

Of course,  you could always use it as an excuse to indulge in a little something to treat yourself, too! It’s become a habit the last couple of years for me to indulge in a new Coach bag for the summer around this time. I always casually toss out the, “Hey, do you feel like getting me a bag for Mother’s Day again?” comment to my husband, and he usually tosses a relieved look back, knowing he’ll only need to be responsible for a card or flowers or something the day of – so that I know he really does appreciate all that I do.

So for starters this week, I’ve got the newest padded camera strap available on eleventhavenue.com for a special price that won’t be back. The special will run with them for five days, and that’s it. It’s kind of like zulily or a groupon kind of thing. The larger quantities allow me to offer it at a special price.

Here’s a peek at the three styles available:

bluebird chic red + indigo camera strap

 {red + indigo}

bluebird chic padded camera strap mint + hot pink

{mint + hot pink}

bluebird chic padded camera strap peach + coral

{peach + coral}

Happy shopping!

the sunday post – march 8

The sunday post is a weekly collection of links to things that have caught my eye around the interwebs. It’s intended to inspire, inform, and engage with you on everything from current events, to business, art, or crafting. You can find past Sunday Post entries here.

It’s the End of Fashion as we Know It in DeZeen magazine (shared by Holly Becker) – this is a really interesting article, and I have to agree with her, as someone who follows fashion. I don’t know what’s in store for the industry, but it’s definitely changed.

4 People you Need on Your Team by Tara Gentile – I’ve been thinking about this a lot as I work on expanding my business. How to connect with people, grow and expand!

Why I don’t Give or Sell Digital Files by Sarah Petty for the Joy of Marketing. I’m not sure where I stand on this as a photographer, but I found this article really interesting. And I totally get her point.

It is Well with my Soul DIY Wall art by Bonnie Christine – I came across this a WHILE ago, but since I’ve been repainting and doing some things around the house, I’ve been thinking about it again. I’m not sure that I’ll use gold letters, but I want to put up a quote on our walls.

25% of people have a 4th cone and can see colors as they are by Prof Diana Derval – Um. This is cool. I have no idea on the neuroscience behind it, but it makes sense to me. I saw 38 of the 39, and have always had a knack for mixing and matching colors – even when I don’t have a swatch. I should ask my husband to take the test, just to see how he sees it differently, huh? We always assume that our experience is what everyone else has, but it would make sense that not everyone even sees all of the colors on the spectrum.

Have a lovely week!
