It didn't happen like they were predicting and I am a little disappointed! I was looking forward to the white fluffy stuff and although it has been snowing most of the day, it isn't sticking much. I've come down with some nasty chest cold thing and am not feeling all that great, so I'm stuck in the house anyway and with no pretty snow to look at :-(. Ah well, winter isn't over yet, right?
I bought a couple of these tins from Oriental Trading a couple of months ago and finally got around to covering one of them.
I had seen so many of them done on other blogs and on SCS so I decided to give it a try myself. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be but next time I probably won't use red line tape - it takes alot and I only put it along the edges. I think the ATG tape might work just as well. The flowers are Primas and the word is from a Cuttlebug alphabet. I do actually keep cards in it, too! There's never one in there for whatever occasion I need, it seems.
I made a little photo studio spot in my craft room and figured out how to get decent shots, at last. Someone (don't remember who, of course) posted on their blog about setting the white balance on their camera so I got out the dreaded manual and looked it up. Lo and behold, I can have preset the white balance. Who knew? So, I have a white shelf and I use a piece of white mat board for the backdrop, one lamp with a Reveal bulb and my fold up Ott light on the other side to minimize shadows. All I have to do is turn on the lights and let the camera see the white mat board to set the white balance and most of the time the photos come out pretty well. Pretty cool, huh? I thought so :-) I will take a photo of the set up and post it soon. It's primitive but I can leave it set up all the time. I don't have a lot of spare room in here for one of those professional "Studio in a Box" things and I'm sure they work better but this one works fine for me. Gotta go take some meds....
