Lightbox!

24 Aug

One of the most important elements of my sales both on Etsy and eBay is my pictures. Ever since I found out what a light box is, I have wanted one! Mom & I did some research online and decided we could make one. We finally got to it last week. Mom took a cardboard box and cut the sides out of it. We covered them with tissue paper and put poster board inside for the back and bottom of the picture. I forgot to take a picture of the finished product, but here is a shot of the cutting.  We had some difficulty coming up with lights. I put one on each side and a brighter one at the top. It seemed to work pretty well, but when I looked at the pics on the computer they have a sort of red tint. One of my lights has a red shade, which I thought may be the problem, but also all of the pictures I took were red items? So I have to keep experimenting! I think the best pictures are still better than the old ones I was taking, so that’s an encouragement!  My first light box picture. This one is a bit better, I think:  Does anyone have any suggestions for me? I’d love to hear your ideas! Once we find a good place to set it up in our *small* house, I will try to post more pictures of the actual light box.

Hi Again!

30 Mar

This blog kinda sorta died out at the end of last year. It seems blogging isn’t really my Thing. The main Thing is I’m busy doing other things that seem a little more important to me. I was quite surprised when I logged in and saw that people are still actually looking at the blog! Right now I’m going to post some pictures of my recent life (a very small part of it, that is). I’m not sure where, if, or when this blog is going so I won’t comment on that right now.

Sewing Space - Cleaned & Organized

    

Sewing Space - Cleaned & Organized View 2

Recently I have been slowly working on cleaning up and organizing my sewing space. (I don’t have a sewing “room” so I’m calling it my “sewing space”.) It’s nothing fancy and it’s not done yet, but it’s working out well for now. My sewing space has become a little more important as I have been adding different products to my Etsy shop.           

We enjoyed beautiful snow March 18 & 19! It was pretty cold, but very pretty while it lasted.This week we have enjoyed signs of Spring again!

Have a blessed weekend!

Beautiful Greetings

22 Jul

Beautiful cards make it so much ‘easier’ to send notes to my friends. 🙂 I enjoy making cards, but I often think I don’t have time. There are lots of lovely options out there, tho!

Here are some beautiful ones I found on Etsy.com:  Beautiful Greetings These are all made with flower photos. (This photo only shows half of them.)

or I have a few of my own too: Etsy Shop

History Part 2

27 Jun

If you missed part one you can read it here.

Here is some more of my story. Maybe it will give you a more rounded view of what I am like. I don’t usually sit around crocheting all day. I couldn’t do that if I wanted to because my hands would be sleeping by then. So here are some more of my hobbies.

My other interests include sewing. Most of the sewing I do is for family and friends, but I have occasionally sold some finished products. I used to sell dresses through http://www.modesthandmaidens.com/ but I have discontinued that. I also sold some cloth bags on eBay. That is still in the back of my mind to try that again… Maybe someday!

Another interest I have developed in the last few years is photography. I love to take photos, mostly of nature, and use those photos to make beautiful, inspirational cards. I am just learning in that area so please be patient with me!

Those who know me, know my favorite hobby is reading so don’t be surprised if some “Books” or “Reading” posts show up on my blog although it really has little to do with my other hobbies and activities. I do use reading to de-stress sometimes, though!

Part of what has shaped my life and perhaps caused me to enjoy these hobbies and activities is my health. I have had chronic respiratory illness most of my life. I am thankful for all the support my wonderful family and friends have shown me. Thank-you for always being there for me!!

I don’t want to draw unneccessary attention to my health, or turn this blog into a pity party, but as this is a big issue in my life, I am sure I will refer to it from time to time. I do enjoy comparing notes with others and getting ideas from different sources.

 

New Greeting Card Listings

21 Jun

This morning I listed 4 new greeting cards in my Etsy Shop. The pictures on the cards are of four different sweet pea flowers. I took these photos in Phoenix, AZ. I have had fun editing them. The first pictures are pictures of the cards and the next pictures are the photo itself.
