Laughing At Myself....

Why am I laughing? Because this latest collection on my latest promoted items CLEARLY shows the difference between items I've recently renewed - and items I've taken new photos with my light box! Ah well.

So here's my plan. I have a lot of inventory (a lot) between my two shops. For Etsy I'm going to slowly replace the photos by rephotographing items whenever they come up for relisting. For Artfire, since items don't expire, I'm going to alternate between one new listed item, and retaking the photos for two old items. It'll probably take me a few months, but hey, at least this way I won't get stressed out! That's really important with the way my lungs have been misbehaving lately.

Anyway, you know the drill, tell me which piece(s) are your favorite(s) and why and I'll give you an extra entry into my Top Commentators Contest!

The lightbox photos are wonderful Ruthie! Good idea on the schedule for re-photographing too. I really like your Saturday Night Party necklace!

Im still trying to figure out a way to improve my photos. I've tried a light box but I don't like how my items look in it.

I plan to try a few model shots but with being a night owl and needing sunlight it doesn't work.

My favorite item:

I redid my photos a couple of months ago and it is time consuming, but worth it!

I love the seed bead bracelet with the butterfly not only for the beautiful colors but the fantastic intricacy!

I love the princess necklace. I love the color, it reminds me of DNA and I'm a science geek, and it's my style LOL. You can tell that must have taken a long time to make, lots of work went into that!
