Ok, first of all, how the heck is it October already? Unbelievable.
Instead of inching closer and closer to the end of the year, this year when I made myself so many promises I have yet to keep, it is coming by leaps and bounds and I find myself staring into its face and thinking "well, what are you going to do about it?"
What I'm talking about, in case you were not aware, is that I set a goal of having my Etsy shop up and running this year. Finally. And with more in it than a few vintage items. I made this goal, mind you, at the beginning of the year. And now it's October. My one huge roadblock right now is photographing my knits. I have tried taking photos in the house but the lighting is terrible so the colors are off and the detail is not great to say the least. I need to get outside and take photos, but the weather has been dreary, rainy, and unpleasant. And in the rare event that a sunny day coincides with my day off, it always happens to be a weekday and I'm home by myself, and if you have ever tried to take a picture of a scarf on yourself (or worse, hand muffs) you will know why this doesn't really work out. I need a model, or a bust form, or a photographer, or all of the above.
On a positive note, I tested out my first hand muff design yesterday and got lots of compliments on it, so I am really excited to launch them! Soon, I keep telling myself. Soon.
In the meantime, to help with the denial that it is indeed October, a pretty desktop wallpaper for you from poppytalk: (follow the link for the full size image)
