Well good morning Wood Sprites, and Happy Hump Day to all!
As we were prepping and getting ready to launch the store, we noticed that all of our photos had a bit of a yellow hue to them. This was somewhat corrected with my photo editing program but you can really tell that it is still there. We started doing a little research and the lighting that we used was a soft white light. This is the most un-natural light you an get. At least from the home store where the bulbs were purchased stand point. Coming in around 1000-3000K (don’t really know what this number means). As we started comparing different bulbs, there are much brighter (white) lights available. So while shopping for supplies, we picked up a 5000K, natural daylight bulb. Boy was that light better! So over the course of the next few days, you can expect to see new photos of our products at the webstore An October Monday. This also means we should be updating our Etsy store as well. So be on the look out for those.
More shop news! We have been commissioned by our favorite local store to create some signs for her shop! Our good friend Heather Killen, owner of Violet Flame Gifts has requested a couple of signs for labeling different areas of her store. Wood work on these was completed yesterday, and the art should be done today. As soon as these are completed, we will post photos for all to see. Yes with better lighting as mentioned above.
We also have begun work on a series of new small, portable, personal altars. One in the series of two new designs was created yesterday and the other should be done today. Artwork will then follow and be posted to the store soon.
As you can see, it was a pretty busy day yesterday.
Until next time…
Hold on to Your Happy, Laugh till it hurts and Live in Love,
