Photoshop and keychains

Thanks to Joe, I'm quite involved with the Ontario Geocaching Association. I've been "store manager" handling the ordering of swag to sell up until recently. I've handed the job over to someone else, but I'm still helping out, just not officially.

Anyways, we're making up geocaching keychains to sell. I ordered the keychain blanks through Ebay (quite cheap!!!) and now someone else is going to be designing the keychains.

I purchased a handful of the keychains for my own use. This morning I've been playing with Photoshop and came up with this:

I've sent the image to Walmart for photo processing and when they are done hopefully all I'll need to do is trim the image and insert into the keychain. I'm so excited about these, but I'm not sure if I cropped the image to the correct size. I hope they turn out!!!!

Now that I'm thinking about it, I think I need to come up with an image for the back. Back to Photoshop I go. I also want to make some keychains for Joe and I to use as trade items. Isnt' it funny that this has become the most important thing I need to do today when my "to do" list is a MILE long!!!!!!!!!!!

Very cool. Anyone who is anyone, will have a "Trail Mix Designs" keychain.

Umm..can I have one? lol!

I think that hiker guy will make a cute keychain for your trade item!

What a fabulous design! You're so talented Karyn. How about if you cut a piece of pretty fabric to put on the other side?

That sounds like it will be a great idea!

(Um, I totally understand the doing other stuff when you really need to get some stuff done. Like me right now... I really shouldn't be reading blogs. I just really wanted to catch up on blogs first before I start my blogging break:)
