I splurged on a new toy yesterday. It wasn’t my fault really – I ran by Sam’s Club Tuesday for a couple of things and there they were! A taller-than-me stack of Canon T2i camera bundles. I walked away without one Tuesday, but it haunted me all night and, when I realized one of the items I purchased had to be returned, I think it was all over. It must have been kismet though, because I ran into someone on my way out who wanted to buy my old XTi – she came by today to got it! Can’t hardly beat that!! I see a nature trip in my very near future (not to mention some serious product photos for that fabled Etsy store a’mine)!
Today, I finished reorganizing the studio – pulled a piece of furniture from another room (a small, glass-doored cabinet my grandfather made me many years ago) and filled it with all things colorful. Totally IN LOVE with it!
Also added some inexpensive closet storage pieces that fit almost perfectly under my windowsill (can’t stand anything that covers all that luscious light).
Beyond that, I’ve been cleaning out drawers and clearing away the MANY little to-go packs of ephemera I’ve made over the years… the ones you make when you’re going to a class and they say, “bring little bits and pieces to use in your collage.” Well, every time I get back from one of those, the little folder or box or whatever full of little pieces has gone into a stack and oh what a holy mess I had!! But, it’s all tidy now and I even finished last year’s travel journal – will try to share soon (plus the full enchilada in my flickr gallery).
Next on my list is those elusive product photos, but I did some test shots and am MUCH pleased. Etsy – here I come!!!
