Investing in my Business

I’ve been bad…I know. I have no excuse for not posting more regularly!! But I want to share with you my new toy! I just got it the other day and it kills me that I haven’t been able to really use it much. I’ve been swamped at work and with the shop, I just haven’t had a chance. I finally bought my very own DSLR with my own hard-earned cash. I can not even begin to explain to you how proud of myself I am.

I promise you that I will take lots of beautiful photos soon and post them up for you all to see! I want to get in the habit of taking photos on the weekends when I actually get to experience the daylight hours. With daylight savings time, it’s dark when I go to work and it’s dark again when I come home. It’s pretty depressing actually.

Does anyone have any good DSLR/photography tips for a beginner? I’d love to hear them!


Knitting, knitting, and more knitting..

Wow, it’s been a while. I really need to get better at this whole blogging thing. Though I feel like I start off almost every blog that way, it is the truth.

So I picked up a new hobby, yay! I learned how to knit back in December, thanks to my Mom, who helped me start on a cowl. Well, I finally finished it last week. Let me start off by saying, this thing is gigantic. I don’t know why I’m such a horrible judge of size, but I had in my head it was much smaller. But once I casted off and actually looked at it off the needles, I realized I probably could’ve stopped awhile ago. Ah well, lesson learned. It’s still super soft and snuggly and I still love it, it’s just really big. It’ll be good to have next winter when the bitter temperatures start rolling in. As for now, we’re hoping to go full steam ahead to warmer spring temperatures here in the NorthEast!

So that brings me to my next project. I have thrown myself into this whole knitting thing, and I found some great patterns. I actually started working on a tiny baby pod to be used in newborn photography. {No, it is not for me, so please don’t start inquiring or jumping to conclusions. ;)} It’s a really pretty chocolaty brown shade in a more bulky yarn, so there’s a lot of texture in it. I’m hoping to have it finished next week, so we’ll see. That is my goal now; to work on smaller projects so I can have more of a variety instead of dragging out one big project that will take me months to finish. I get bored easily, so that’s never a good idea.

That’s about all I have for now. I want to get back to more knitting before I have to head into work. I’ll be sure to post photos of my finished projects soon.
