I took this past weekend off from sewing to finish photographing all my purses and finally get my ETSY shop off the ground. It took me all weekend of puttsing around, rephotographing everything twice, picking fuzz off purses and generally primping them for their big photo shoot. The results are getting better as I learn all the settings on my new camera and different lighting situations. Here is a picture of the behind the scenes action as Eric flitted in and out and under the table as I was working.
Then came the time to write the descriptions of everything and I felt a little stumped. Of course I want them all to sound really good, but I felt a little self conscious about selling them too much. So I started out simply describing them in a very straight forward way, but before I knew it I felt like Elaine from Seinfeld when she was working for the J Peterman catalog! So when you read a purse description and it includes a dusty road down a sun drenched path or a moonlight reflection of "her" eyes. Feel free to smack me. I just got a little carried away.
