Fall is here and we're gearing up for the holiday season already. A few new products will be hitting the Etsy Store in the coming weeks, and we're making more of your old favourites as well. If you want to keep up on new products, and get some promo codes, sign up for the Craft Collective Newsletter on the home page, next edition coming out in mid October so don't delay!
It's become apparent that my photo setup just isn't up to snuff for some of my latest projects. I've been able to get by with a makeshift setup for many of my smaller items, but when I made a coffee table this spring I realized I had nowhere to photograph it. I took it to a local studio to have them take the pictures, and while I'm happy with how they came out, it's something I'm capable of doing.
So I've just received a three light setup with a backdrop (white and black). It was a fairly cheap set but I've set it up permanently in a corner of my basement so I'm not so worried about the durability of it. The LED lights seem very bright and should help me step up my pictures of some of my new items like the Modern Milkman Stool.
Another successful Mkrsmrkt this year in Burlington, Ontario. I've gradually been scaling down my show participation, but I still love coming to Burlington every July for this truly great evening. Fritzy the Bus returned again this year, and while it's running as smooth as ever, the intermittent gas gauge is a bit worrisome sometimes. Our 1974 Campervan has become a regular sight at this market, and it means that I can bring along my daughter and make a summer holiday out of it.
Looking forward to next year's event!
