Cyber Monday is a marketing term for the Monday immediately following Black Friday … created by companies to persuade people to shop online. The term made its debut on November 28, 2005 in a Shop.org press release entitled “‘Cyber Monday’ Quickly Becoming One of the Biggest Online Shopping Days of the Year” (thanks again, Wikipedia)

Today’s topic, cyber Monday is about bringing the focus back to my work, Uncommon Everyday Art. Every year at this time I create a new image for Christmas. For years it has been only available to my family, usually as the annual Christmas Card I send out to family and friends. One of the things that I love about my photography is being able to find a need (greeting card, blank living room walls….) and setting out to create something to fill that need. A few weeks ago I decided I needed an image of a candy cane for my portfolio. I got a few boxes in different sizes and colors, set up the table and shot about 300 images of the candy. The results were some really beautiful images, up close and personal. Classic shapes and colors… a clean look, modern and retro at the same time.
These photos were added to my collection of Christmas Cards, photoCards, gift tags and decorative magnets. I also created a limited edition bookmark series. Those photos are actually the headers to my blog… click the header and the image will change to a different view. I have 5 in all. And don’t forget about my desk calendar for $7.50 as seen in this post: THE calendar*. I also have a full portfolio of Uncommon Everyday Art available too! (www.oregonshar.com)
