I went to Michael’s today. Always dangerous. Normally I go overboard and buy everything I see that I think might even be a little bit useful to me, so I tried to restrain myself this time. I am proud to tell you that I spent under $20 this trip! I bought two new bottles of paint which I’m psyched to try out because I’m actually really horrible at mixing my own colors. The true treasure of this particular trip, however, is the most wonderful necklace display I have ever seen.
About a year ago, I bought myself a traditional black velvet necklace display only to find that my camera panicked when photographing a piece on a totally black background and left it devoid of any color other than blinding white. Needless to say, I retired that display to holding a nice necklace of mine on a bookshelf. So you must understand how thrilled I was to see a necklace display covered not in black velvet, but rustic, rough, elegant, perfect, loose weave cotton. I’m over the moon and I’m so excited to start taking photographs of my products on this baby! I deem her Victoria the Grand. And I love her.
Also, I can hook earrings in to take pictures of the whole set!
That beautiful beast you see in the background is Rupert the guardian of the printer. My Granny gave him to me for Christmas. 😀
