New Photo Shoot

Sometimes it's fun to re-shoot pictures for things I already have in my shop.  This morning I was looking through my shop and realized that some pictures REALLY needed to be re-vamped.  So I had an impromptu photo-shoot!

Here's some of the old pictures:

This is one of the old ones I kind of like because you can see the patterning of the lace, and the pink adds a happy feel, but I really don't like how the background at the top left looks bluish-green.

This one I really liked too, except for the fact that once you look really close, it just seems a little out of focus.

Here are the new ones:
I actually love the contrast between the bright sunlight
and the slight fading around the edges here.  It seems
to set a mood.

More fading around the edges.

I like that you can see the patterning and the end  of the lace clearly

Another with a more loose and flowing look

I love the glow again from the sun!  I guess I'm
a California girl through and through!

With this new batch I was having fun with the "Vignette" setting on my photo-editing software which adds a little softness around the edges.

Which ones do you like best and why?  I'd love to know!

The New Blue!

Well, my knitting craze has continued into the warmer seasons, thus producing some fun warm-weather accessories!  I found this wonderful cotton tape yarn at my local yarn store, and immediately was inspired!  It has such beautiful saturated colors!

The day I found it was one of our first hot days, so the cool-to-the-touch feel really drew me in.  And because of the yarn's construction, it knits up into a vibrant, soft, accessory that has a beautiful drape!

I made one cowl, and loved it so much that I kept it for myself.  Since then I've created more for others, and even decided to create it again in another color.  The first one is this chartreuse, blue and violet colorway.

The second time I made it in blues and purples!  Each of them has a different look just because of the color differences, but I love them equally!  This one has more of a beach feel to it I think.

You can see how they can go either with casual or dressy clothes too!  When an accessory is this versatile, what's not to love, right?

Here's an in-the-process photo just for fun:  

But that's not all that's new.  I've added this personalize-able necklace to my shop too:

Have fun!
