What you use as a photography backdrop doesn’t have to be complicated, expensive, excessive, or even heavy for that matter. It can be your desk, a rug on your floor, a piece of plain white or colored paper, a bed sheet, etc. The list goes on. First, use what’s around you. Personally, there are a few things that I consider when deciding what kind of background I want to have to photograph my products.
I believe in the Taco Bell method. It’s simple, gives people what they want, and gets the most use out what’s available. Take the soft taco supreme for example, stick with me here, the only thing that separates it from a regular taco are the tomatoes and sour cream.
After leaving my contract job just shy of my two year mark I purchased a solo ticket to China on Christmas Day. In this post I go talk about why I left, and what I learned about being a business owner on this short 9 day trip.
In this post I talk about and show you the evolution of my product packaging. I went through a redesign and explain the reasons why as well as show pictures of how it used to look vs what it currently looks like.
Learning how to make stickers has been an interesting process. There have been so many different “wasted” papers, issues with ink running out, cutting alignment being way off, and more. But when you can take that little sticky thing that you yourself have made and apply it to a photo, your journal, scrapbook, your fridge, your wherever, it’s a pretty satisfying feeling.
I have been hard at work this week! As I work on my store I want to take you on the journey with me by showing you HOW I do things. In this video I show you how I edit my product photos using photos I took myself and photoshop!
So in this post I want to go over the reason I chose packaging tape, the different design iterations I went through, and the outcome (hint: it’s still in the process. I’m heading out of the country on Monday but I wanted to get this post out to you before I left! When I get back I’ll update this post!). I’ll show the different designs I came up with, what I liked and didn’t like, plus troubleshooting and mishaps! Enjoy!

Hey Guys, welcome back for another tea talk. Today I want to talk to you about 10 MORE things you should bring with you to your first craft show or market! This episode goes along with my latest blog post that shares 20 things you should bring with you to your first show.
It’s that time of the year where it seems like many of us makers are getting ready for craft shows, so if this is your first time I have some advice for you as well as what to bring! Although some craft shows tend to run year round, the holiday season, as it begins to cool down, seems to draw out people from their homes and into their community. This will also be a great time to showcase your new items that you’ve been working on for the past two months! (If you haven’t planned out what you want to make specifically for the holiday season, check out episode #1 of the tea talk series to download the free pdf (no email required) and listen to the talk to get the most out of the download.)
