Happy New Year + Share Your Shop/Craft!

Hey all! Wow, can't believe it's been several months since my last entry. I missed this place and you guys! 2015 is already here and it's nearly halfway through January. 2014 flew by so quickly it's hard to believe. I do hope you all had a wonderful new year and a lovely holiday regardless of what you celebrate. :)

I have been super hard at work these last few weeks. As winter has officially set in some time ago (and it's just so dang cold out) I'm no longer able to pop outdoors and take pictures. I've also come to see my old spot inside I used to try and take photos in wasn't doing my work any favors. So I've been making all these wonderful things and have had no way to share them. Only people who have seen me at my last few shows of 2014 ever got to see these new works! Recently I began to change all that.

I got together with my mom and she helped me whip up a nice big light box complete with 4 clamp lights. It's nothing fancy, but I have been so stoked to finally see that little glimmer of progress appearing on my horizon. Sadly it wasn't as easy as just point and click with my camera. It's been about 2 going on 3 weeks now I am just recently seeing results.

Below are a few little previews of what is to come.


I will be working to revamp my shop as time goes on and I look forward to using some of my new techniques come spring when I get to go outside again. :)


I would love to see what you have to share too~ Please post in the comments a little something about your craft and include a link to your shop. Be sure to check out other's posts as well and spread the love a bit. :)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone, I look forward to seeing what you have to share! :)

  1. Hi there, you've made some gorgeous bracelet's..I like to suggest you aluminum reflector instead of light box..You don't need a box even you just need to wrap a small board to hold when you take photo around the item reflect to shade...works much better and easier to get a result...Good luck:)
