Monday What’s on my Desk
05 Monday Nov 2012
I love Mondays.
A fresh new week with lots of cool projects to work on: First, setting up a photo studio of sorts in this funny little nook of an office we have upstairs. There’s good natural light, but I’m such a novice at photographing items that I’m taking a million photos to find out the best position, angle, etc. I’ve decided to finally open an Etsy store and I need to get things photographed! More details as things progress, since I have a lot to learn. (Including the Polish mail system.)
Also: Scanning in a ton of vintage flea market ephemera, postmarks and old letters and scraps and cut-out words and fragments for another project….stamps! This is a MAJOR learning experience for me (greyscale? bitmap? dpi?) and for awhile there I was like, I’m never going to get this. But somewhere along the line I did get it, sort of, so I’m keeping calm and carrying on.
Last—two coffee cans and a beer can, which I’m saving because I know I will come up with an idea for them some day. I think I’ll use the coffee cans to hold brushes but I have an idea to somehow make a journal cover from the beer can because it’s actually really pretty.
Hope you have a happy Monday!
