Crafting Lately

I am finally starting to list items on my etsy site, Aspire To Be. As you will see below I am having a hard time getting the pictures right but we are getting there.

Alex’s boss and family are moving to Chicago in the coming weeks. As a goodbye present I made their children a few things.

For their three year old little girl I made this adorable crayon roll.

The Dad is a huge Green Bay fan so i made their (almost) one year old a Packers Jon Jon. IMG_2288


...and of course Liam got a little something new but needed…a baby belt! Back in December i purchased a bunch of 12 month size shorts for him . So here we are, it is summer, and Liam does not need a size 12 month in shorts but he is going to wear then darn it…so i made him a camo belt and it is both adorable and functional. The whole front is velcro so it makes for a fast fasten after diaper changes…because looping through a D-ring with a squirmy kiddo is not fun plus it is softer on his belly than metal would be when crawling around and napping.

The etsy site is still in the works…I am having a huge problem getting good product pictures. The lighting in our house is not the best and the pictures outside I took don’t thrill me. Any advice on taking good pictures with no good source of natural light inside?

I ran outside the other day to snap a few shots and when i came in toting the camera someone wanted their picture taken (shocking i know, right?).

That crayon thing is adorable! I have seen it before and I am so impressed that you know how to make them! Give me another year and I'll definitely be buying one! :)
