Spring!

Vintage Handkerchief Skirt

I’ve been working on new Spring and Summer things for the shop lately–neglecting the blog, neglecting the yard, neglecting the garden.  *sigh*

Just sewing, sewing, sewing, SEWING!

Also re-working (or attempting to re-work) the photography for my etsy shop.

While I love the editorial photography, the lighting, the mood, the setting…..it’s not as cohesive as I’d like it to be.

Gauze Gypsy Dress

So, I decided to try a new style.

Went out with the lovely Nancy Jane a couple of weeks ago and snapped a bunch of new photos with new things, as well as old.

While I love them……they’re still not right.

Going for more simple.  Less distraction from the clothing.

But I think I’m going to miss the backgrounds.

Trying to get your business the way you want it is a never-ending process, it seems.

But worth it.

Pinterest Wednesday

Still feeling a wee bit sick, and so the week has kind of been zipping past me, while I feel like I’ve been puttering around in a fog.

Ideas have been coming along, and I realized that I need to start building up stock for Halloween (and the Endless Nights Vampire Ball).

But that’s all besides the point!  It’s time for my weekly favorite pins!

Pinterest Wednesday

Another Wednesday? What?  This week is flying by.  Had a little photo shoot Monday morning, and I’m still editing images from that.  (if you’re a fan of my facebook page, you’ve seen some of the new images and items for sale)  Hope to have some to share in Friday’s post.

Until then, you get my favorite Pinterest finds of the week!

As another Wednesday has dawned, so has another weekly installment of Pretty Stuff I Pinned:

In no particular order, and credited where possible (side note: wow, is it HARD sometimes to hunt down sources–and this week I failed more than succeeded, sadly).

Circus Shoot

The final images from the recent Circus Shoot were released!

(which, if you follow me on facebook, you would TOTALLY know by now, seeing as I repeatedly posted the pictures over the weekend)

I’m happy with how they turned out.  Each shoot is a learning experience, and each one is more fun than the last, somehow.

Pinterest Wednesday

Orders have slowed down around here, allowing me to catch up on some projects as well as plan some new ones.

And spend more time online.

My favorite pins of the week, in no particular order, and credited/linked when possible.
