just curious...

I've been tossing around the idea of putting together an online Holiday gift guide in magazine format. I know this would be a huge undertaking (just ask Erin or James, right), but if you feel it would be something helpful, let me know. I know a lot of you read everyday without commenting, but I really want to hear from you today. In today's economy, putting together a thoughtful and meaningful gift is more important than ever. What are your thoughts? Is this something you would find useful?


I think this color combination is very inspirational for the Holidays. image via Hoot & Heart

I always find your suggestions and creative juices so useful and inspiring. But whether you do it on your daily posts or spend the time with a magazine, I think I'd still get the same helpful hints. If you have the time and drive, I say go for it! I know we'd all love to see even more come from you. xx

Wow, Jae! Well, I can tell you that I personally bookmark ideas of yours that are helpful, which I'm sure other readers do, too. Yes, a gift guide would be a huge undertaking...but you might enjoy it, too. And you could do a PDF-only format, so that you don't have to bother with the printing, etc. That's probably more time consuming than anything, plus you already know we are avid readers online, so we'll all check it out!

Hi Jae! I saw Oh Happy Day mention that for $42 she was starting a "Pretty Little Things Club" which is a six month subscription and she sends something lovely to her members each month. Her response was tremendous. I thought that was a swell idea. Something like that would guarantee that you generate a set gross revenue.

Back in the day I was an account manager for Fortune 100 companies and their corporate communications needs. I'll never forget the process of shooting the Saab catalog, oh it was so much work. It really took a team to do it. Just tellin' you straight up.

Your idea of a catalog is great, all of your things are fabulous! Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Oh dear--- I think it's a FANTASTIC idea. Truly. And I agree with Courtney--- if you have it in you and it's a desire of yours, GO FOR IT! :)

I'd love to help in any way I can, dear!

Jae,

I love the idea of a "Pretty Little Things" club. Of course, I love the idea of having more of your special brand of wonderfulness no matter how it comes.
