Lightbox! + wine charms

YAHOOOO I finally buckled down and finished my light box! I don't know why it took me so long, it was so easy! I took it outside to play today. I used a tutorial I found at Flax and Twine.

 Not much to look at... especially sitting on top of our cobwebby grill. But it seems to do the trick!

 I grabbed some wine charms I made recently. I've had these glass beads (the large ones, not the seed beads) since high school- like, eight years at least. I'm quite pleased with how they turned out.

 I still have a lot to learn about my camera, etc. But this is a huge improvement, and a huge step in the learning process!

Here's another set I made after I ran out of the beads above :)

ANYways it is late here in CA. I had a late night at work and it is past my bedtime!


POST SCRIPT! In my haste to post this late last night I totally forgot to mention that I'm linkin' up with a couple bloghops!

The first is the Make the Scene Monday hop, from Alderberry Hill

The second I've hopped in before... the Bloglovin' hop over at Happy Kids Inc!

 Don't forget, you can find me on Bloglovin' here.

Caturday: SAY IT IN CATS.

This week I made the most amazing discovery ever via Neon Fresh: A website where you can type in whatever text you want AND IT SPELLS THOSE WORDS WITH CATS.

This. This is what the internet was created for. You can say whatever you want in cats here. It's a Japanese website (go figure) but it's easy to figure out. (the four options between the text entry box and the button that makes it go are size options- largest on the left).

Happy Caturday!

No patience

I have no patience for this photography thing.

It doesn't help that I took this on my dumbphone!

My skills have not advanced. And it's not for lack of resources. I have a fancy camera. I just haven't sat down to learn it other than point and shoot. Not to mention the bajillions of tips, tricks, and tutes out there on the interwebs. I also haven't really made an effort to create a space for photography. I did start making a lightbox with instructions from Flax and Twine today, but for some reason I am so easily discouraged when it comes to photography.

On the upside I spent some time working on organizing my workspace this week. It stretches along one side of the bedroom and consists of a large desk, a big metal cabinet, and a three-drawer plastic storage bin that doubles as my night stand. Aaaaaand I have way too much stuff! Not to mention I usually have three or four projects going on at once- my ADD brain works better that way, in spite of the chaos and clutter.

Hopefully soon I'll have that lightbox up and running.
