More stuff up in my Etsy shop...

I've been dying to get back to doing some decoupage under glass work, but things have been too busy. Sadly, that means that my Etsy shop has been languishing -- until this morning, I only had seven pieces posted! Many of my favorites -- like the conjoined twin skeletons are gone, and while ideas spin in my head, there hasn't been enough time to execute them. I guess it's a good problem to have, but frustrating, too, since it feels like I've been letting my etsy space slowly die.

After a lot of thought, I've decided to add large-scale photography and reintroduce handknit baby hats. Think of it as widening the net. I'll also add smaller photographic prints, including some macros and small pieces from instagram and, eventually, some more decoupage under glass pieces.

I hope you stop by and take a look!

I love 500px. There. I said it.

If you know me, you know I've long been a fan of flickr. Some might even say a heavy user. With nearly 17,250 photos, I'll cop to that one (and if you only knew how many I never posted...) Flickr is a great tool and serves its purpose well. I love making cards and books through linked apps and I've had many compliments on the quality of those pieces. But as someone who takes capturing images pretty seriously, I have to say, I LOVE 500px. The interface is gorgeous and clean, photos really look their best. Best of all, 500px allows users to sell their work and maintain beautiful portfolios online.
