Somewhat darker / Något mörkare

A few more of my recent photographs, a bit on the darker side.
I am preparing to start my business. Who knew there were so many things to do? (Everyone who's started a business, I reckon.)
I need to check a few more facts regarding taxes and selling abroad since I'm about to start an Etsy shop.
My photo printer broke and I have been trying to find a new one but my demands are very high; I can't wait to make prints out of all my photographs and collages and paintings.
If I dare say it I'm almost there.

I have made some changes on my blog; don't know if you can spot them but I added the "about" page in the right-hand column and shifted things around a bit.
Några nya bilder till, något mörkare.
Jag håller på att förbereda mitt företag. Vem kunde ana att det var så mycket att göra? (Alla som startat företag, antar jag.)
Jag behöver kolla upp några fakta till när det gäller skatter och att sälja utomlands eftersom jag snart kommer att starta en butik via Etsy.
Min fotoskrivare gick sönder; jag har försökt att få tag på en ny men har väldigt höga krav. Vill få ut mina fotografier och collage och allting i verkligheten så snart som möjligt.
Om jag törs säga det så är jag nästan framme.

Jag har ändrat lite i bloggen, lagt till information om mig och afiori där uppe till höger, stuvat om en del. Maria-Thérèse Andersson afiori

Beautiful photos, as usual. And good luck with the taxes. I so hate taxes.

Love the photos. Good luck with the printer - and above all - the tax people!

Please can you explain what an Etsy shop is?

You never fail to inspire me!
I am glad you're almost done with the paperwork, truly.
About work, I have always wanted to do research, to save up for my masters degree( in Economics; International Development)and then finally become a social entrepreneur...I have made a post or two about that, I think, on my blog... they are training me now, in publishing and formatting working papers and stuff. I am intending on talking to the director since my contract says I am a researcher!
Thank you for caring Maria-Thérèse, I am really touched and I really appreciate it!
PS. are xerox printers expensive at your end? Also, can't you take your photos to a studio/print shop so they can print them for you while you fix your printer? I hope all goes well
Sorry for the long comment!!

You have wonderful artwork & a lovely blog.

I saw your supportive comment on Suzan Buckner's blog & just wanted to say "well said!"

Taxes?? UGH!

I have nominated you for the Marie Antoinette Real Person, Real Blog Award! Hope that was ok.

Taxes, bah!
I've just talked about it with my bookkeeper, he gave me the advice to write down every sale each day in a sort of diary, so don't wait till the end of the month to do so, because than you won't remember...

I print out my fees, so I have a good overview each month what I've sold minus the fees.

Good luck!

btw there is a new picture of you! Lovely, again!

and... indeed these pictures are darker, but I love them too.
I love the one with the cat :-)
