Make and Tell Challenge, Day 53





















After splitting a pizza with the bf, I snuggled under a blanket on the couch and began work on more ribbon necklaces. After a long work week, there was something comforting about it. I kind of felt like one of those old fashioned women relaxing with her needlework at night after a day of plucking chickens and washing clothes by hand. Not that there's anything old fashioned about knitting. Oh, and I had the TV on ("Ugly Betty," never to be missed). I suppose that wasn't exactly quaint either, not to mention incongruous with the chicken plucking and whatnot. But you know what I mean. So, on to the makes. I give you the Blue Paradise Ribbon Necklace and the Cute Critters Ribbon Necklace. While making them, I thought back to my other two ribbon necklaces, which I posted in my Etsy shop yesterday. I decided I wasn't at all happy with the photography. It was too plain, for lack of a better word, and not at all something to grab the shopper. With that in mind, I whipped out my Mr. Sketch smelly markers and drew some graphicy designs onto the corners of some ordinary white computer paper. Then I arranged the ribbon necklaces on the paper and began shooting away. It was definitely an improvement, and I shot today's makes the same way.
