Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

One Week To Etsy: Take A Picture Day Three

I am back and we will be talking about taking pictures for your ETSY Shop.

First and most important you want to make sure that you have a solid background to take the picture against.

My Background a Simple $2.00 Trifold
You also want to have lighting. Natural is best, but if you are like me you probably only have a chance to take pictures at night so I use this light.

The Ottlite and yes that is my clutter

The other thing you will want to use is a good editing program. I personally use Picnik (Kimberly from Bugaboo, Mini, Mr., and Me turned me on to it)

It takes pictures like this....

And with a little tweaking it turns it into this...

Monkey Ear Dress

So much better don't you think?

I also like to take pictures of the details of the clothes. This dress is serged so I needed a picture of the serging.

Serged Seams

If you have a similar outfit that your child wears it would be awesome to include that.  People love to see the outfit in action. So I will include this picture.

Rocking The T-Shirt Dress

That is all for today. Tomorrow (or Monday) I will talk about getting your listing up and ready with the worlds best description.

Till Next Time.
