I am slowly getting back to normal (whatever that means!) after a nasty bout with a head cold which turned into bronchitis. It seems like alot of people are getting sick this year and I wasn't lucky enough to avoid it. My DH said there were people at work with it, too - why don't they stay home and try to avoid spreading it??? It's called sick days, people! Ah well, being sick makes me appreciate feeling well again and I am looking forward to fully appreciating that very soon!
So, as promised a long time ago (or so it seems) here is my primitive photo shooting setup. The lamp on the right has a Reveal bulb in it and I know most of you will recognize the Ott Lite on the left. The shelf was where I had my little television that I never watched, so we moved it to the bedroom so I can fall asleep watching TV in comfort instead of in the living room chair and get kinks in my neck. The white board tacked to the wall is just the backside of a piece of matboard. If I want a black, or other color, background I can throw a piece of fabric over it and Voila! - new background.
I don't think I properly white balanced my camera before taking this photo, but with a little Photoshop help it turned out ok. The hearts and leaves are colored with H2Os and you can't see the shimmer but they are very shimmery. Love those H2Os! There are 12 new colors, too, just so you know:-) I used my one lonely set of Nestabilities for the scalloped rectangle. I am trying to resist buying any more and so far, so good! The shiny dots are my usual Stampendous Dot Sparkler stickers, in pink this time. The verse is a Great Impressions stamp and the main image is Impression Obsession, embossed in a pearl gold powder.
It is a balmy 18 degrees outside right now and supposed to warm all the way up to 38 - yippee. I need to get groceries and am not looking forward to freezing my buns off (if only it were that easy!) so maybe I will treat myself to a visit to the stamp store and Michaels to make the trip less painful (sweetie, disregard that last sentence).
Thanks for hanging in there with me and I hope everyone is healthy, happy, and staying warm - is it springtime yet?????
