$100 - Oh so close!

posted on 26th of august, 2010

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.

Keep up the great work. Just keep adding work when you can. It's an exciting day when you have finally created enough work that Dreamstime pays for your utility bills! So, do what you can to add images to DT, enjoy your family, and have fun! :) Best wishes...
