Working With My Camera

I haven't posted for a bit because I got onto Etsy and I'm trying to photograph some of my things.  I'm finding out that photographing items closeup is very tricky.  Luckily the sun was out today and I could take some things out into the yard.  I don't know how many pictures I took of this little jar in the house before I got a fairly decent picture of it outside.  I have a Canon PowerShot A550 and it's a great little camera but I need to learn more about it I guess.  If anybody has any great ideas I'm open for suggestions.  Otherwise I'll get there, eventually.        Diane

A Few Tags

I hope you're not getting tired of looking at these, I'm not tired of making them.  The thing is they're like little works of art but they don't take too long to do.  So before I get one done I have an idea for the next one.  Here are some I created this weekend.  I love the bird ones and the ones with the old clock faces especially.

Full of Wish Dust

Haven't you always wanted a little bottle to hold your wishes?  A little bottle that when you held it up and shook it the wishes would tinkle around along with little stars and angel dust?  That's what these are. Barely 2 inches high they're still big enough to a lot of wishes!                            Diane

Birds and Miracles

I guess that's what I had on my mind tonight.  Birds, eggs, miracles, they all seem to go together.  Most of these graphics are from a sheet from Creative Scraps that I received for Christmas.  I reinforced the little bird before I cut it out so it would have enough body to extend beyond the tag.     Diane

Another Secret Valentine

Although Valentine's Day is almost a month away, it isn't too early to get them made while I have time. 
I was just thinking when I was making this one, after boys became crushes it seems like Valentine's Day was always disappointing.  I never seemed to get a wonderful Valentine from the one I wanted.  Now that school days are a foggy memory, and all of those boys, too, Valentine's Day is beautiful, and fun, and romantic just because it is.       Diane

Early Valentine

Can you keep a secret?  I just finished this for the Valentine Swap that Laurie at Buttons and Lace is having in honor of Deena of Can I Be Pretty In Pink.                 Diane
