a giveaway each month, and previews of new items

Pictures and things

I have some great things to post but ned to take pictures first. It ends up being really complicated because of lighting and the way the camera doesn't exactly get everything into the frame of the picture or it ends up being too far away looking. It's sort of frustrating. During the summer I can set up a place outside in the back of my house to take pictures to get better light, but as of now it's not the right time for that. I bought some wooden clothes pins for the pictures, that might be a good way to get things in pictures. We bought a digital video camera that takes great pictures, so I'm glad to have that for this kind of thing too. I was hoping to get some blanket packages done well before Easter but that's just not happening. Oh well I guess... They're still cute for girl babies for Spring and Summer time or anytime really.

  1. Do you have a free copy of Picasa installed on your computer? I definitely recommend it. It's easy to use, and the tools available through Picasa can do wonders with mediocre photographs.



About Me

My photo
My name is Shawn and I am a stay at home Mom of two boys and also a student. After many years of school and a Master's degree in Psychology, I decided to go back to school for Lactation Consulting. I spend most of my time with my children, and working on my sewing projects. Currently the sewing projects have to due with my little side business of making things for babies, which will be the main focus of this blog. I also love spending time with my husband but I see him very little now because he is busy with work and paramedic training. We have been together ten years now and married five! I love making things for special people in my life, I feel like it's something I can do to stay connected and maybe they will think of me when they see the blanket, pillow, curtain, or whatever else I have made. Since I am a somewhat introverted kind of person sewing seems to fit me, it's a way to express myself creatively, and put love into each piece, for each person. My life is quite challenging at times but I make sure to think about things I am grateful for each day.
