I've Seen Better Days...

I hate it when bad songs get lodged into my little pee brain!  Today wasn't really a bad day, and it's only noon, but it was frustrating.  But really it just reminded me how much I hate it when things don't go my way.  I don't think i'm a control freak, or even a type A personality, and i'm certainly not a perfectionist.  BUT when other people can't do their jobs properly and that has a negative impact on me I get really frustrated. Today had not one, but two of those. One rather minute and the other one almost, and i mean almost brought me to tears.  But i'll spare those details as none of it relates to art in any shape or form.

The sun is sort of out but it's cold, which makes me feel less guilty about staying in and photographing stuff for etsy.  It's a constant struggle to get good photos.  especially of 2 dimensional items! I have to wonder how some etsy people get such awesome shots!  while others like myself need much improvement!

the black apple - etsy
These are some good examples!

And now i'm going to try to get some good shots of owls and C is for Cat!

Ps. to follow i'm sure!
Just because i promised a ps.  here it is!  A couple photos I took today. I think they came out pretty good!

Thanks nancy! i'm trying to make the photos interesting without distracting from the actual item. My corner window in the kitchen seems to provide the best light earlier in the day! :)
