Sunday Life [30.08.15]: Product Photography, Fabric Shopping & a Day of Rest
So instead of waking up full of energy yesterday, ready to write my Saturday Life- it was one of those mornings where everything was going wrong, and I had bit of a melt-down… And decided that the rest of my day would be much better spent snuggling with my puppy and being away from my computer.
So now that the weekend is almost over, I feel like I’m in a better mood to be reflecting on my week and sharing the best bits with all of you lovelies!
The first part of my week was spent working on product photography- something I never knew could be quite so tricky- and something that has been much harder to do with bra-kits than swimwear kits. Who knew that adding a piece of black or white powernet to the frame would completely throw off the white balance and colour? who knew? *sobs*
And here that behind the scenes ‘magic behind the photos’ you will see on Etsy soon! (I should have a couple kits up tonight, but I’ll be doing a post on them tomorrow!)
None of this would be possible without this little helper-puppy who insists that my lap is the best place to sit while I set up the kits for pics.
In other news, I managed to get myself to the big city this week for some Queen st. fabric shopping with a friend. I can never say no to floor-to-ceiling fabric!
So of course I couldn’t walk away without something beautiful- which was this amazing gold silk brocade for an upcoming corset this fall! (My friend picked out this navy&turquoise for herself!)
Anyone joining me for Corset October this fall in the Bra-A-Week Challenge?
Speaking of the Bra-A-Week Challenge- I’ll be taking it over again! Alas it is the end of the summer and my wonderful summer host – Michelle – has passed the torch back to me- and I am again the host of the Bra-A-Week Challenge. So you will be seeing those Sunday posts up again starting next Sunday!
For this Sunday make sure that you check out the Bra-A-Week Challenge over on her blog!
Otherwise this week I’ve been enjoying:
The #sewphotohop over on Instagram, this was my Day 29 photo for ‘eye level’ – not super sewing-themed but I love it 🙂
The fresh corn on the cob that is finally in season! nomnomnomnomnomnomnom
And pinterest- I’ve been obsessed with these Ziegfeld Follies Girls – and all these gorgeous boudoir style shots from the 1920’s *swoon* I’ve been in a pinning frenzy over them on my Boudoir Board.
