Internet Listing & Shipping Dept (aka - my bedroom!)
Ok, this is were I "take care of business", you know - the not-so-fun part of being an artist. One of my customers complimented the photographs I take of my beads and jewelry and asked my what kind of set-up I used. I just laughed! As you can see, I have 2 cheap aluminum clamp lamps that have daylight bulbs in them. They are clamped to a wooden box that I bought at a garage sale. The whole set-up is on a shelf above my desk. My camera is attached to a really old - but cool Japanese tripod that I found in a thrift store when my tripod died. It is super heavy duty (unlike my expensive, yet dead tripod) and has a really nice crank. However, my little desk is not wide enough to accommodate the legs, so it is propped on 2 chocolate chip cookie tins! And, the answer is yes... The cookies were good! You can see my printer and props to the right of the lamps, my laptop below (with the cutest picture of my little doggie as wallpaper). On the shelf above my photo set-up is where I keep my inventory and shipping supplies. This is all supposed to be temporary until my permanent studio is built before it's starts to snow (in like 2 months). Later this week I will post pictures of my lovely Studio/Trailer (aka - 1965 Prowler camping trailer). That will be good for a laugh!
