Summer Evening

I’m loving the colors of this photo, and the lighting behind her hair. It has such a typical summer evening feel to it. If only she was holding a piece of BBQ’d corn, then it really would be the perfect summer night (but would also look kinda weiiiird).

A friend and I are going to be doing a photoshoot pretty soon, we’re just finishing up all the final touches. We bought three summer dresses for the shoot, all for under $15, a large silk Peony, a blonde wig from Ebay (in a bob style), and we’re borrowing a pair of cowboy boots.

We’re going go do the shoot at my parents farm. I figure pictures by the horse, maybe in the woods with the goats, or in the chicken coop with a chicken under my arm, would be pretty cool. We’re also going to bring a picnic basket, quilt and wine glasses down to the woods and see what sort of fairy-tale / whimsical feel we can create down there. Should be interesting!

Well, I just realized that this bag is no longer in the shop! I’ll have to go through my inactive items and re-post it. I love this bag. It’s so functional and perky! The print is so fun and happy, it’s a feel good bag!

The red bag I made (in the post below) was made as a diaper bag / purse, and this one could be the same! It’s big enough for diapers, bottles, a wallet, keys, and some baby clothes. And it has two exterior pockets to help with organization.

Flickr: Aknacer’s Many Faces

In Uncategorized on October 5, 2008 at 5:00 pm

The other day I emailed Aaron of Aknacer on flickr to see if he’d be interested in doing an interview for my blog. I was actually surprised at the speedy reply, but yep, he was interested! Make sure you check out his girlfriend’s flickr account too, RosieHardy.

Q: You’re an avid user of Flickr. How and why did you get started?

I first joined Flickr only to share some travel photos, but as my interest in photography grew i found Flickr to be a great social network to develop ideas and get feedback and support on photos. 
Q: How has Flickr benefited your photography and love for this art?
I started my 365 project because I saw some other people doing it on Flickr. Basically the idea is take a self portrait every day for a year. Some people go the simple route, and just do a snapshot most of the time, I wanted to create images that I could be proud of. The pressure to create something new and worth while every single day has made me devote quite a bit of my life to photography. I am spending anywhere between 3 and 9 hours every day creating the images you see on my stream.  Spending this much time on photography has really helped me to improve my skill, see what works, and what doesn’t.
Q: I’ve been following your Flickr Love Story with Rosie for a little while now, but many of my readers might not know what this is all about. Could you tell us a little bit about Rosie and you?
Rosie and I actually celebrated our 5 month anniversary today! Rosie lives in England and I live in the United States. She and I met through Flickr early on in our 365 project. It became very obvious from the begenning that we are very similar. The first thing I ever said to her was that I think we have the same brain. I believe that even more today. It is amazing how much you can tell about a person by what type of images they create.  Meeting my soulmate through Flickr couldn’t have been more perfect. We share all of the same passions in life but don’t necessarily compete for the same audience. We each create different types of images, and I think people are attracted to our images singularly as well as coupled.
Q: Where do you see Flickr taking you?
I am now working as a professional photographer and digital retoucher. When I first joined Flickr I had no plans of changing my entire life around for photography, but thanks in part to Rosie, Flickr, and all of our supporters I know now exactly what I want to do with my life and couldn’t be happier.
Q: What did you want to be when you grew up?
Good question, and the answer has probably changed more than I care to admit. I have gone through everything from Plastic Surgeon to ninja 🙂
Check out Rosie and Aaron’s blog! They have great tutorials, movies and pictures (:

New Site!

In etsy on September 12, 2008 at 8:00 pm

Have you ever heard of Fred Flare dot com? I just found it through the Featured Artist on Etsy. It’s a really cute site with cool items of all sorts (: Take a peek! I haven’t quite figured out if it’s all handmade items…or what the site is about exactly, but there’s super awesome stuff on it!

Speaking of the Featured Artist on Etsy…when am I going to get to be on there? (: It’s a goal: One of these days I’ll be the featured artist.

ETSY NEWS: I sold TWO bags on Etsy the other night. Two. To the same buyer (: Yay!! Hopefully sales are picking up! My goal is to have steady sales on the net during the winter and focus on the markets in the summer. That way I’ll have a good income coming in constantly.

Another new bag to come this afternoon!

PS: Also, check out great Flickr artist. Holy. Crap. Love it!

You featured my Etsy store and blog on your blog the other day and I just loved it! Thanks so much for thinking of me and linking to my stuff…I really can’t believe you think I’m “insanely talented”. That’s such a huge compliment!

To answer your question of how I achieve my photography: I have no idea! Really. I have this crap camera that hardly ever focuses properly, the lens doesn’t shut properly, it’s chipped and scratched and only cost $100.00 from WalMart. Half the time I have to take hundreds of photographs and still only end up with maaaaaybe one that will do. I guess if I was to say I had a “trick”, it’d be Picasa. It’s a photo altering and storage system that you can download for free and I use it to enhance my pictures, make them more sharp or add funky features to them. But it’s all the computer. Hopefully soon I’ll be getting a new camera, my hubby and I were just talking about getting it as a joint Christmas gift for ourselves…

Thanks for your advice, too! I’m trying to put into practice what you’ve said and hopefully my blog will become more successful because of it! Thanks (:

*Linky Lovey*

I think it’s time for another Link Love post. I love doing these…I always really appreciate it when people post my links and I love giving back to them and other bloggers / Etsy sellers.

  • Don’t you just love the name Sally Jane? Funny, it’s a combination of my sisters name and mine…maybe that’s why I like it so much (: I’m not going to tell you what this girls all about. I want you to look and be fascinated! I’m evil, I know.
  • Apparently, I’m into the “S” names today. I just added Sarah & Abrahams link to my blogroll. She’s cool, she’s awesome, she’s funky. Check ‘er out. She’s an Etsy seller and guess how many Hearts she has now? Oh wait. Yep, you gotta look at her blog to find out. Evil little me.
  • I went back to visit my old blog the other day, to get some more links from the blogroll. And I fell in love again. With Style Me Pretty. Do you need a girly boost? Read this blog. You’ll melt.
  • I’m sure I’ve given this girl some link love before, but I’m going to do it again! Shannon’s blog at Make It is so great, always a cool post on what she’s working on, her thoughts about business (on and off Etsy) and other creative and inspiring tiddle-bits. She’s a daily read for me.
  • Also, check out this picture. For the princess in you.

Oh and by the way!! I have a big project I’m working on that I’ll hopefully have more organized by early this week…it’s a gooder! Make sure you check back!
