Palm Springs Vaca

I'm heading to Palm Springs with a friend for a whole month...We're driving down and going to stop in San Fran for a few days too.  I really need a break although I can't complain about the Portland weather this winter.  My roommate is going to man my Etsy shop and when I return, spring should be in full swing,  Any ideas on what to do there?  I've never been.

A Little Bit of This and That

I have no rhyme or reason to what I have in the Etsy shop.  It's a great pastime though!  Here's a few items that are coming and going in and out the door.  Visit the Etsy shop  because things are flying off the shelves and you never know what I will find next....should I post Christmas things too or wait for the season to come around again?  I have TONS of really fun and gorgeous Xmas from kitschy to Victorian.  Let me know if you think I should focus on Xmas too.

Pictures Are Tough!

So now that I'm trying to do more on Etsy I have to get real about taking close up pictures of stuff.  It's hard!  I researched the internet and finally am getting a more professional look.  I made my own light box out of 5 pieces of white foam core from the dollar tree, a gooseneck lamp and a roll of white paper. Taking the pix with my cell phone (using the "square" option) produces a much better product. Now I want to retake all the photos of my previous listings...they look gross.   Check out my latest listing and see how much better they look!
