Where is Spring???

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)
  • Tape
  • 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.
