I’m not very happy with the reason of this post, but it’s a “lesson learned” and I wanted to share it:
A few months ago I did a post about how much I like postcards and how I came up with the idea of creating my own Christmas postcard. I also gave the opportunity to people to send me their address so they would receive it.
However, I offered this opportunity before having created the photo and without any clue where I would be printing the postcards.
Time passed… then I finally was able to create the image I had in mind. Then it was Christmas already and I was gone to my home town. Then I came back, looked for the best solution for printing and when I figured out everything I was deeply disappointed because it wasn’t Christmas anymore. I had failed with my deadline and there was no point in sending those cards anymore.
I felt really bad and let more time pass by, but one morning I woke up and thought “I own those guys a postcard, I’m going to create a new one, print it and send it!”. Better late than never, right? And I’m happy to say the postcards are on their way right now. 🙂
Lesson learned: Don’t offer something without having at least the essential done. Do the research first and start prepping things before starting to talk about it.
I’m not going to share the photo I used for the postcard, don’t want to spoil the surprise for those of you who will receive it. 😉 But I can show you the one I shot for the (failed) Christmas version:
