I am only $1.39 away from my big, fat $100 check. I have been a contributor on Dreamstime for a year and a half, slowly selling my illustrations and backgrounds. My portfolio is small - 30 images, and 116 sales. As a busy mom with a full-time job, it's hard to find the time to add to my portfolio. I'm hoping my Halloween-themed images will get some sales soon and I can get my first check.
