New Toy.

Daddy made me a new toy for me this weekend, and I cannot get enough of it. Addiction would be an appropriate word here. Daddy rocks and he knows it.

After some scouting around on Google for the perfect plans to make a light box for photographing small items, he came up with this:

So simple. Yet the results are just so awesome (for my taste anyway):

The ideas for these pics have been floating around in my head for quite some time, and now they are a reality. Feels good. I have some more "irons in the fire", but these were my starting point.

They are all now available in my shop - as 5x7s - for just $10 each. (Pssst... please tell your friends!). I can mat them and frame them as well - all details are in my shop listings.

So, Halis wants kuddos for always being the hero that creates whatever it is I want at the moment. You should have seen him hustle to install fencing around our old one acre farm a few years back. He accomplished one acre of fencing in a weekend - and it came out perfect. All because a fox got one of my chickens and I cried. Daddy came to the rescue and the chickens were safe from then on. Anyway, thanks Halis - you are the best. Truly.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Love how your shots came out! They'd be perfect for a little one's room. Hope you sell gazillions...

Those are great! I have been wanting to make a light box. Yours is awesome. What type of paper did you use on the sides? Good luck with your photos, they are so creative!

Very cute photos.

I bought the coolest cloth light box from ebay (via china) a few years ago it's like a little pop up tent in all white.

It's fabulous!

These are great! You are such a great source of inspiration for me. I've been a little less than inspired lately so it's good to see you doing such great work. It motivates me to get off the couch and get to work! What a great gift from your hubby!

Pokey Patch - We used white muslin for the sides of the box. Hope this helps!
