I got caught up in an Etsy conversation about photography last night and whether a plain or coloured background was better to showcase products. I offered the suggestion that a glittery, sparkly, frosty backdrop might be just the idea for some of them, and then I stopped short and thought, why on earth hadn’t I done that. I’ve finished Miss Lydia Ladle and the pictures, although pretty, could be so much lovelier if they were taken outside.
So I packed up my camera (A.K.A. my phone) some of our lovely pine woodland creatures, the new Tattered Scraps dolls, and prepared for an early start.
Hurumph! Typical English weather!! But I wasn’t going to be demotivated, I might have to postpone my photo shoot (ooh, doesn’t that make me sound professional) but that didn’t mean that I couldn’t spend the day being creative. I could go up to my craft room and start creating pretty fripperies and whimsical what-nots, oh the fun to be had………
………Except it’s the 22nd of January and dear old HMRC decided to send me a text to remind me that my tax bill needed to be paid 😩 So that put paid to doing anything but sitting in front of the computer and sorting Mr Tax Man out. And now all my ‘get-up-and-go’ has ‘got-up-and-gone’ and there’s nothing left to do but have a cup of tea, look out of the window and eat chocolate.
Nevermind, tomorrow is another day and at least I won’t hear from Mr. Tax Man for another year!
