Of all the lovely things I've made...there is little evidence

I made a really cool present for someone recently, and I was in such a hurry to make sure it got there on time, I forgot to pose it for a photo. Sad, huh? I am still working on the whole photo thing. I just can't seem to get it right.
Photography is kind of an illusive thing for me. I studied it during my journalism training, I practiced it daily when I worked on two small town papers, and I even knew how to develop and print photos. One would think that pointing and shooting in their digital age would be sort of easy. Not so, my friends. Now, I have work out artful shots. Therein lies the challenge.
If you have moment, stop by this site:
This is a wonderful CANADIAN on-line shop, that sells the most amazing array of little bits and bobs. Janice is a great photographer to boot. (She also has a wicked sounding chocolate cake recipe in one of her posts.) However, let us not concern ourselves about chocolate cake -- yet.
My awesome pal Suddenly dropped off some of the sweetest little zippered bags the other evening. I shared some fabric from my stash and it came back to me all dressed up. We have plans to go to Fabricland's 50 per cent off for members sale tomorrow. We might also work on making some zipper pulls from Fimo -- and yeah -- maybe even post some photos.

  1. I checked out Scissor Variations because as a fellow Canadian, I'm always looking for Canuck sources for "bits and bobs". It's amazing how hard it is to find anything like what she has on her site. Thank you for the tip!!! I hope you get the photo thing down pat. It's nice to see everyone's progress on their projects.
