New Photography Room...


i've been practicing taking photos for several years now and i've never truly been happy with the results until today!  justin and i found and then bought a photography kit that comes with two lamps a large collapsable white, cube and several different colored backgrounds...  it works SO well!!  it took a little while to find the right angle for the lights and just the right settings on my camera...  (yes, i had the manual out and had to do a little brush up on manual settings for my camera!)

i took more photos of my necklaces today which i am sharing here and if you are interested in purchasing you can go to my etsy store...  my model this week is 'Bee' she is a bunny that we got from a friend of ours and i think she did quite well for her first time out...

next week i'm going to be sewing more "healing monsters".  i have about 12 patterns already started and partially assembled so now i just have to sit down in front of the sewing machine and start cranking them out!  here's a little preview of my new plushy, soft monsters...  

for those of you that don't know... my healing monsters are something that i recently started making after being inspired by my friend's son, gage.  he's been battling cancer for many years now and i've watched him through emails, photos and through his mom and dad, bravely fight this disease with great strength,  courage and grace...  my friend asked all of us who have been following gage's story to write in and leave a note about how gage's story and life had affected or inspired us...  it took me a while to really put into words and action something that i could express that would mean something and maybe be helpful to other people...  so the healing monsters are the beginning of an idea that i have to somehow contribute or help people who are suffering or need support and healing in some way...  the monsters all have zippers for mouths so they are very good listeners and won't speak while you're talking to them...  my idea is to some how incorporate inspiring words onto them at some point...  i'm still working on this but will share more with you later as i iron this out...  anyway... at some point i would like to take a portion of the sales made from these monsters and start donating it to different cancer research organizations that help support research for the elimination of cancer... especially ewings sarcoma.
