So, where is Spring again???
Yes, here we are again, but I regret to say that I am very disappointed with the start of this Spring. It has been freeeeeezing. Brrrrr. Even the poor trees don't want to bloom. But, I have not wasted any time and have kept myself busy getting my Etsy shop going. I have added a few more items that I have been working on. Mostly, I have made some new camera lens pals. They are really fun to make and every time I make one, another idea pops into my head. :) So, yes, new ones are on their way. It's a work in progress. I have made a few and decided I didn't really like how they turned out so....FROOGGG IT!!!!
I also made a really simple, yet awesome light box. It was very easy to make and very inexpensive, but, it works great. It makes such a BIG difference in the quality of the pictures. I would recommend everyone interested to check out the link and try it out.
Here is what you'll need:
- Nice sturdy box (free)
- Tissue paper (craft store or Target)
- Poster Board (Target)
- Two or three light sources (I got mine at the second hand store CHEAP!!)
Here is the YouTube video I used to make mine. Simple!!!
Here it is!!! I did not use fancy light bulbs. You can do that for better lighting as well. As you can see I only have one light source in the picture. You can put a light source on each side and/or one above. I just used the top light and it works pretty nicely.

Give it a go and let me know how it works out. I'd love to see how yours turns out. :)
I think I shared the page that I got the camera lens buddy tutorial from before, but here it is again.
Thank you, Kristin Hankins.
I do mine a bit different. I use double yarn for a sturdier outcome so the number of stitches is less. I hope to be able to write out my pattern soon.
Here are my latest items.
If interested in purchasing any, please visit my shop, or mail me directly.
I appreciate all the visits. Please feel free to leave me a message. I love to make new friends. I hope I have helped inspire new ideas as I have been inspired.
always in your heart.
And as always...
May your yarn ball NEVER run out.
