Photo Facelift

It’s amazing how new pictures give a fresh look to old inventory; an alternate view has the ability to catch the eye of a prospective buyer.  Something that has been viewed numerous times is shown in a new light and just like that it finds a home!

Rephotographing old inventory is something I’ve been meaning to do, but for lack of urgency it ended up becoming one of those things that fell by the wayside.  Finally the time has come to get this mini-project into motion!

First to go back in front of the lens: Flower Pot Covers.

I had gotten the idea for these little cuties back in ’09.  I had given them as holiday gifts for my plant-loving friends, along with placing several in my Etsy shop.  The original images were all taken with my old point and shoot, inside with a flash.  I rephotographed them outside with natural light.

Clearly, the new images speak for themselves!  I’ve swapped out the old pictures on Etsy and have begun listing them in my Artfire shop.  I’ve only had a couple of sales through Artfire, but that is due to my lack of interest.  I opened that shop several years ago but never gave it much attention.  Now that there is a monthly fee for sellers, I’ve decided to give it another go since its popularity has grown.

Snug As A Bug…

…in a Pixy Patch Hug! From time to time I get requests, mainly from my cousin, to make one of my fleece baby hugs. I made the first one a few years ago as a baby shower gift for my niece’s mama and it was a huge hit. I was so excited to hear Cecelia was brought home from the hospital wrapped up in my fleecy hug! I tried to download the pictures but I couldn’t get them off the CD…stupid Kodak Picture CD!!

To be honest I don’t really enjoy making them which is why they are not offered on my website. Trying to wrap bias tape around a corner while stitching several layers of thick fleece together can really try my patients. Here are the pictures of 2 fleece hugs I recently made for my cousin who is giving them as gifts to friends, both with little girls.
How they work is you slip the baby in the bottom pocket and then wrap the sides around the baby. Here is my friend’s little girl, Naomi Jain, modeling her baby hug made in a cute kitty print.
