A new technique

I've been working like a busy little bee lately to get my shop stocked up for the holiday season. Usually around this time of year through Christmas I see my sales double or triple, which is great. But this year I'm trying to make more of an effort to be prepared for it by making lots and lots of things.

A few weeks ago I managed a pretty decent shop update and added some hats, scarves, and buntings. I've also been busy making some custom orders for friends, which is also fun.
With my last update I tried something new. Something which I've thought of doing before, but have always been very hesitant about.... I decided to be my own model in order to get some better shots of the hats I made. Luckily my husband was happy to help out with taking the pictures and he did a great job.

Here's what we came up with:
Now I don't know about you guys, but I rather hate looking at pictures of myself. Which was why I was so scared to be my own model in the first place. But I do have to admit that the pictures look a lot better than my usual pictures of the styrofoam mannequin head as the hat model.

So, anyone want to be my hat model???? I'll pay you in candy, or baked goods, or even crocheted/knitted stuff!! ;)


  1. I think you look great! Those hats are fantastic.

  2. i think you need to get over it because you look beautiful :) i really like these photos!
