If I don't restock my etsy shop soon, I'll have to rename it 'Vintage Abyss.' I've been spending this first week of 2010 getting crafty with my vintage fabrics while simultaneously whittling away at one of my 'Crafty Vintage Resolutions' (Number 9).
Here in the Pacific NW, it's that time of year where it feels like 4 p.m. all day long - as if the sun were just about to set. All. Day. Long. If there were any sun, that is.
Taking photos for my etsy shop, at least the kind that are in focus, is an endeavor. I suppose if I had a grasp of the functions of my not-so-fancy camera or occasionally glanced at its manual, I could learn to work with the fading light around here. Instead, I opt to put on three sweaters under two coats over pajamas and go outside to take pictures.
Now I know why they make fingerless gloves.
Meanwhile, current indoor activities include cutting, pinning and sewing. And tomorrow will be my first thrifting outing in the New Year so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that store shelves will be freshly stocked with vintage treasure in anticipation of my arrival.
And I plan to do the same with my etsy shop shelves very soon.
Hope you're all doing well in the New Year.
