Lazy Photographer

Hi there Blog Friends. I have to confess to being a little lazy at the moment. I do love crafting, but the time it takes to photograph each creation, upload, crop and watermark each photo, then the added steps of resizing for my Etsy and MadeIt stores, just makes things quite difficult at times. It is time that could be used to make more goodies, fold a basket of washing, etc. So today's share is a quick pic of the cards I have made this morning, all in a messy pile, each eagerly awaiting the moment to be photographed on their own.

I received an order of stamps yesterday, so this is the aftermath of their maiden voyage. I am really loving all the silhouette stamps around at the moment... can you tell? Also check out that cute typewriter, globe and telephone too.. love it.

I really need an outlet for my cards... my box boxes of already made packaged cards has surpassed 500 items now! WAAAYYYY too many to photograph and list... I think I may need help... is there a crafters anonymous hotline out there?

How do you find the time to photograph and upload your creations if you have an online store or similar? Do you enjoy that part of the creative process, or procrastinate like me? I'd love to hear from you.

Dear Dad

Hello there all. Another quick share of a card I made for my Dad for his birthday a couple of weeks ago. I have a little trouble with masculine cards, I can handle kids and baby boys, but grownst up men cards do frighten me somewhat.

Have a lovely week, see you next time.

...and the dish ran away with the spoon...

Hello there blog friends. It has been a busy week in our household, but certainly a fun one, full of cross country races, and musical fun. The little munchkins had a special concert at school. The song for the day was Hey Diddle Diddle, and after the initial shock of having to sort costumes in one day... as I had thought the concert was next Friday {insert panicked scream here}, we did okay.

The cow was a cheapy shop gem that I stumbled across in the Easter section while trying to find a bunny ear headband that I could use as a base for cow horns... imagine my surprise when I found the whole suit for only 15 buckeroonies!!!! Bargain... and a great additon to the dress up box!

I had lots of ideas for the spoon... but when I found out that I actually had only one day, my elaborate plans kind of went out the window... I had planned on doing it all this weekend.. now I have some R and R time with my cherubs up my sleeve;) Anyways, I went the easy option and thought this shiny tie (from the same cheapy I love those shops!) kind of worked as a spoon handle, so I stitched it onto a black shirt and Daddy made the headpiece, with some paper plates and the trusty old alfoil. The girls had a lovely time and loved their outfits.

That's all from me today, thanks for stopping by, see you next time.
