Monday Randomness

I took this photo on Friday night at a friend's house. This is their african serval, and his name is Simba. He is a sweetie. They also have a lynx, but my battery died before I could capture him. It was an unplanned trip out there, or I would've been prepared, had been trying to run my battery down so I could charge it for my marathon of picture taking that I had planned for this weekend.

Saturday morning I set up the light box and re-took all of my journal photos. When you are selling online, the picture is probably more than half of the battle. I took my time and took over 100 photos. Take a look at my improved "We'll Always Have Paris Journal" photos. I love the close-ups of the details, the pictures on the map, the stitching. And I believe I got the lighting correct. If you have any critiques, please do let me know. I'm striving to improve!

So, Saturday was spent retaking photos and we took a couple of mommies out to a late lunch. Sunday morning was spent tweaking a bit more in my shop, then we went to a Titanic exhibit that was traveling through town. Then we went to a friend's house who makes fused glass pendants. I met him through Etsy, and we quickly became friends. We had gone there a couple of weeks ago and I tried my hand at his craft. I picked my pendant up yesterday and it's absolutely gorgeous!! I'll take a photo of it soon and put it on here, in the meantime, to get an idea of what he does, check his shop out! After we got a little glass time in, we all went out to one of his neighborhood chinese restaurants. It was delicious!

Wonderful weekend... I hope all of you mother's had a great day yesterday!

Fabulous picture of the serval/kitty!!!

I think your journal pictures are improved. (And I'm now tempted by your Asian inspired journal. The writing is Japanese because I can recognize the kana characters in it.)
