You know the Shop; Now meet the Crafter

Long and over due


Well, I'm back. 

Well over two years later, I have cracked open my blog, whipped away the cob webs, and I'm ready to start my blog over again.

I'm going to try my darnest to keep up with my blog for now on.

Where did I go? Facebook. Not my fan page either, just spent all my time on Facebook.

What was I doing when I wasn't on Facebook? Working, and wedding planning.

Also:
Married - March 23, 2013
Our marriage finally happened! After many moons of planning, our wedding date came, and went. We've now been married for 8 months, and 9 days. We are looking for a home, and planning to move in at the end of this up-coming January.


Another thing I plan on doing more with this blog is:

Less about me, more about the shop.

I know the description says, "You know the shop, now know me", but when reviewing my past posts 2 years ago, I seem like a bubble brain that only wanted to talk about herself. While that used to be true, I now would like to talk more about all the things happening in my life that directly effect my shop.

My marriage, and house shopping are included in this.


Two years ago, I started off  by telling you that I got a new camera, ands saying that it wouldn't be the last one for me to get. This was also true, but my goodness was I so ignorant in photography.

I have a SLR now, and "zoom in more" as so wrongly put it, isn't what I was needing. I needed lens options, I need to learn ISO, aperture, shutter speed. I needed to learn lighting, composting, and exposure, and boy was that a lot to learn. I am still need to learn so much more as well.

Though, my photos have greatly, improved, and now I will start taking my own photos for my shop. BUT I will still be using other photographers the other 99% of the time.

I have two newborn shoots coming up, one in this next week. I'll post a sneak peek of the hat I chose to use here as well. If I don't, go to my Facebook fan page, and demand that I do so. I really would like to keep my blog updated for now on.

Lastly, here are a few new items to hit the shop:

Alpaca wool - Newsboy hat

Newborn bonnet - satin ribbon
