Almost 500!!

posted on 14th of september, 2009

Today I am at 496 sales, number 500 is really getting close!

A little over a year ago, I sold my first pic wich was this one

It could not have happened with my unexpected best seller, my dear lady-cows :)

not without those cuties which turned out to be very photogenic and very populair

and off course not without my two precious angels (well..at least some of the time they are.... ;)

I'm wondering wich one will be number 500!

Will you count down with me??

Only 4 more to go!

Hi Martine, good to hear from you!
Stichting Nederlands Visbureau will use the picture on their website: www.visrecepten.nl
Thanx for the lovely picture. Maybe you can help the Visbureau some other time. I see Dutch Fishery is your specialty! You can email me: mailatmerelvanderwilden.nl for more info

Hi Merel,
Thank you so much for your comment, very nice of you to let me know. Yes, these two are my sons. Do you maybe have the link for me? I think they will love to see their picture in use.
Thanks again!

Beste Martine,
Graag had ik je een email gestuurd, maar ik kan geen adres vinden. Ik heb de foto van de jongens die kibbeling eten gekocht. Ik ga deze gebruiken op een website ter promotie van het eten van vis. Zijn dit jouw zoons? Ik dacht dit vind je vast prettig om te weten.
Vriendelijke groet,

Thank you all :))
Yes, now counting down to 1000 LOL
Mani: I (succesfully!) bribed my kids with half of the revenue if one of their photo's is sold :)))) They can buy a present for themselves ;)
