Bad me. I forgot about my blog!
Note to self: Remember to blog!!!
I had a booth at a craft show September 5th and 6th. The Toronto Festival of the Arts. It went great and I think I will do it again next year.
Also coming up I'm doing another craft show on October 3rd. It is held at Fransican University of Stubenville and is called The St. Fransic Fest. It is a part of parents weekend. I have done it in years past and it is always a great festival.
I've been listing daily for the last couple of days and hope to keep up the habit. I have seen a big increase in veiws and hearts since I start listing. The forum post "Let me tell you 95% of your problem" is what got me started. If you want to read the post here is the link: http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=6280230 .
I figured out great photos! I wrote a forum post on it but I will recopy it here:
How to take Great Photos with out any equipment expect for a camara (I used one that now sells for $20. I got it last year when its price was $100.) & a piece of white paper.
All I do is go outside with a blank white sheet of paper with one end folded up a right angle. I shade the direct sun light of with my shadow and take pictures with micro close up turned on. Then I upload to the computer and up the brightness and contrast. They turn out great and the colors don't change when I get the right balance of brightness and contrast. Some examples: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=30852783
Not all of my photos are retaken yet but some are. I'm going to do the rest when I have extra time.
Well that is all for now. Watch for next weeks post.
