What I Have Been Doing

Well, it does not feel like much. And yet I seem to have all my time full. I think it will be more difficult than I thought to get sewing completed while the boys are home for the summer.

I have gotten some bags done, like my clutches, pink skull handbag, a couple Venus handbags and of course the bridal order. Then there was the picture taking - which led to much ibuprofen taking. The pics always have a yellow glow, even with the full spectrum lights. I really, really, need to make a giant light box. Giant because of the size of many of the bags.



update: listed the pink bag too here

And then I listed these...



..plus some of the clutches from Clutchapalooza...



So, I guess that is pretty full. But my Not Mandatory embroidery is still half done, my paperwork is not caught up, and I still need to finish rearranging my fabric & possibly where it will be stored. Let's see how far I get this week with the little guy in summer day camp 2 times a week.

What pretty bags! You are more productive than you think!
I try to use natural filtered daylight whenever possible. A good light box does help, too.

Your getting a lot done! Don't feel bad! The photo taking always gets to me too - my camera likes to turn my jewelry blue >_> I want a light box too! But I'm not worrying about it until we have a new apartment because I have no idea how much space we'll have...

Hi T!
Read your camera manual about the white light filter, gets rid of the yellow tint on indoor and some outdoor pictures!
I took lots of Tylenol while photographing my jewelry until I read about the wlf .. now it's easier..(technical though!)
