A day of photographs

As opposed to "A Day in Photographs," which I've done previously. The weather was absolutely gorgeous today and I was so tempted to go out and play, but I've been fighting a nasty cold/cough all week, and really needed to make myself relax and stay home and be good, so today I picked one section in my Etsy shop, my Y-Necklaces, and redid a bunch of the pictures.

My old pictures were taken on a remnant of ivory satin. I'd started in the last year using first a piece of white on white embroidered fabric, and then started switching in between some sheets of scrapbook paper too. But I had some of those older pieces there still, and I've been meaning to update them. I'm feeling very accomplished today. Well, except when I realize I spent almost 6 hours today, and then look at all the pictures I still have to retake. But I'll worry about that later.

For reference, here's some before and after shots:

I think it's quite an improvement. Variety is good.

While I was going through doing the retakes, I found six necklaces I'd never actually listed, as well as three pieces that I seem to have sold at shows but never remade. I know what I'll be doing tonight now!

Here's the new listings:

Sunstone Y Necklace with Pewter Celtic Knot







Purple Jade Y Necklace with Pewter Celtic Knot Bead



Amethyst Y Necklace with Pewter Celtic Knot



Red Fire Polished Glass and Pewter Celtic Knot Y Necklace



Brown Banded Glass Y Necklace with Pewter Celtic Knot



Waiting impatiently now on my potatoes to finish baking and steaks to finish grilling.
