Busy, busy...

What i did today, besides regular work stuff was this: i painted a coat rack and made hats.
I am working like crazy on creating some new pieces for the collection i planned a long time ago, and it's finally working for me.
I am constantly working on two or three pieces at the same time, and they're all turning out pretty good.
A few more small items and i think i'll be done!
Then of course comes the tricky part; taking good pictures, editing said pictures, writing descriptions (something i'm terrible at, because i fiercely dislike writing nice things about my own work), figuring out a price (another thing i hate doing) and listing the whole thing on etsy.
One of these things would be so much easier if only i had a model, but i just don't know that many people here.
Tragic but true, and i really don't feel like doing it myself .
Maybe i'll just have to settle for my trusty, old mannequin again?

Leaves, flowers, animals, sewing stuff, tools and glue, lots of glue
Sometimes i had to break and take this guy for a walk
Which wasn't too bad, for once it wasn't raining

I finished three pieces today, and if tomorrow is as productive, i might post some teasers!

  8. Sarah, thanks, i hope you'll stick around!

    Hella J, enig, Fie er flot med hat, men jeg tror hun har ligeså lidt lyst til at lege model i en skov som jeg har.
    Jeg vil gerne ha' et flot shoot til de her hatte, og jeg vil selv bare gerne stå bag produktet.

    Sunny Buick, thanks so much for that link, i'm gonna start saving up for one of those gorgeous ladies right away!

    christel, tak for søster-lån, hun er helt perfekt!

    samboy, i only drink tea from that cup now, drinking tea from any other would equal failure and that's just not an option anymore!

    Flo's Diner, god idé, men mig og Allan vil gerne udendørs og prøve at tage nogle virkelig smulle billeder.
    Og lige til denne samling hatte vil jeg helst bare ha' en model.
