my
shop









i am happy, pleased, excited, (relieved), thrilled, delighted
to announce that my shop is open !

instead of celebrating the 4th, like most americans did yesterday,
i decided to try photographing some of my items in my "photo studio".
what started out as a "test" to see if my lighting was acceptable,
turned into a "real photo shoot".
i think it turned out ok, considering. . .
sure i wish i could invest in a professional photographer with professional lighting in a professional studio. . . maybe 1 day.

be sure to check back on monday, as i will have a little announcement.

hope you like everything so far.
i do plan on updating as often as i can
maybe even later today. . .

*update* some cotton batik bags & head scarves have been added

(so happy to hear that the photos don't look too amateur-ish!)

breathing said...

by the way, where did you get those mannequins that the necklaces are on? i assume it's related to your work, though i don't know what you do! (heh) i've always wanted one and never knew where i could find one!
