Side Hustles
(DETM June Newsletter)
Dear Dave,
While travel has been slow or non-existent over the past year, many of us have picked up side hustles to fill our time and maybe earn a few extra bucks. 
For some that may be being a full time parent to kids who are doing school online from home. For others that may mean getting or creating another job, for now. 
I decided to fill my time with hobbies and little side businesses, expanding on things I know and love.
Last Fall, I wrote and self-published a Covid Signs photo book to help document this unique time and how different parks and businesses reacted to the pandemic. FYI, I still do have a few signed copies of my first printing available HERE
PHOTO SCANNING SERVICE: Old photos, negatives and slides fade and deteriorate over time. Recently I finished my 2 year project of scanning a lifetime of family photos and slides. It has been great to share some of those digital old memories with family and friends via email and text. 
Since I have the hardware (flatbed scanner and a new slide/negative scanner), I decided to offer my services and time to do the same for family and friends. Click HERE to find out details, if I can assist you.
PHOTO COLLAGE SERVICE: Over the years, I have created many, many photo collages as gifts for family and friends of important events (weddings, holidays, vacations, etc.). 
Do you need a unique gift for a loved one? Do you need a creative travel poster or canvas for your home or agency office? Click HERE to find out details, if I can assist you.
Stay safe and strong.
