Doesn’t seem like a week since I wrote my previous blog post.
We are back around to Sunday already. This week has gone by exceptionally fast for me. I can only come up with two reasons. A – I’ve been working with mainly one craft medium all week. B – I’ve been much more focused this week due to my new crafting companion – classical music.
Normally I listen to all sorts of different music when I creating but this week my radio had tuned itself, (as in radio got retuned when it was knocked over), to a classical music station. When listening to that I found myself a lot more focused on my work and I was more relaxed too.
What do you listen to when you work or craft?
The product of all that extra focus has been various Easter themed decorations, made from the felt shown in last week’s blog post.
I’m hoping to make a cousin for the Easter Bunny next week with brown felt. These decorations are all now in my new fabric and felt section on my website. I’ve also increased the size of the photos on the website to make the handmade items in them seem clearer.
I’m also trying out new lighting styles for my photography so that I won’t need to cut out the background of what I’m taking a photo of, then putting in a new background digitally. This method makes the photo seem brighter and helps the item stand out more, but it gives a slight “fake” feel to the item for lack of a better word.
Hope everyone has a good week, even with this snow sweeping across the country. Time for another visit to this week’s Handmade Monday.
