Guilty as charged!

So, as you can see, my blog is woefully neglected. I have been doing all sorts of crafty stuff, but sitting down to write about it just doesn't excite me. So I am trying something new: I am going to be tweeting about my crafty adventures. Hopefully that will make it easier to share with you all! If you would like to keep up with me, for the time being please:

1. Like my facebook page: JennyBanCreates. I believe if you like more of my posts, I will be more likely to show up in your news feed.
2. Follow me @JennyBanCreates
3. Spread the word to your friends! If you have crafty friends, and/or friends who enjoy unique and handmade items, let them know about me please! I am always available for custom projects, and have some new business ideas in the works, as well.

To make sure you don't feel neglected: here are some photos of an adorable coaster set I made for my brother-in-law. The coasters are backed with felt, as is the handmade stand.

Thanks to all who follow my crafty pursuits. I truly appreciate each and every one of you!

Show Off Your Age

I hope you are enjoying seeing the variety of projects I work on, because that is something I love about having a creative business--getting to do all sorts of projects. Recently I had the pleasure of making some t-shirts for birthday brothers. When you are a kid it is fun to show off your age! I love taking the "age" t-shirt and adding the extra personalization of a name. Want one for your kid's next birthday? Let me know!

You Light Up My Life

This week I did something that I am so excited about--I made a DIY light box to take better photos of my small craft projects! Long ago I bookmarked a bunch of tutorials on how to do it, and FINALLY I am hoping to show you better photos of my work. I used one of my favorite cards to demonstrate:

Before, even with color correction this photo is lackluster!

After, you can see the true beauty of the finished product.

And here is a shot of my in-home photography studio. :)
