Last spring I bought a new camera. It is quite a nice camera, and the last model before one steps up and invests in the SLR with interchangeable lenses.
Last weekend I made a monster for a gift exchange for one of the local 4-H club's Christmas party. It was a really cute monster. It was transparent emerald green with a white heart on its belly. It was 4-H colors, in fact. I cleaned it, wired it, added crystals, hung it on a lanyard clip, sent it off to the party...and completely forgot to take pictures.
This seems to be a recurring theme...I make something, give it away or sell it, and completely forget to take a picture of it. Obviously, I am going to have to be a little more vigilant about picture-taking. Somehow that is the step I always manage to forget. I see a check sheet in my future listing taking pictures as one of the steps.
I think it might help if I were to take the old camera--expensive, film-camera--out of the camera bag and replace it with the new digital camera. Or maybe even get a new camera bag for the new camera. I put the last (cheap) digital camera in a bag to carry around along with other art supplies, but the bag isn't big enough for the new camera (I don't think) and I haven't tried to keep it anywhere other than the box used for packing.
I DID remember to take pictures of the twenty bookmarks that I just completed. The monster in the photo is one of those twenty. I really like the combination of the periwinkle and rose glass. I will be making more beads in this combination.
