Support Your Local Cryptid!

There is absolutely no denying that while growing up I was an odd child. While most 7 year old children were in getting into My Little Pony, G.I. Joe or Barbie I was obsessed with the Loch Ness Monster. And I wasn't alone! Oh no. I had my best friend Molly to help read books upon books about Nessie with! We even had special notebooks just for "evidence".

Now I'm older....but I still LOVE Nessie. Sure, most of those photos in my "evidence" folder have been proven fakes and not much new is heard from her these days. But I still love that cryptid as dearly as I did back then. Which is why I was so overjoyed to find PearsonMaron on Etsy ( Not only do they feature multiple Loch Ness Monsters on wheels, but magnets and pins with her too! It's like a dream come true!

Okay, so maybe you're not Nessie's biggest fan. Maybe you favor the Chupacabra...or Bigfoot? They SO have you covered! Can't choose? You could always get the pin pack and wear a different mystery animal everyday!

Fancy Photos...yeah.

After much exparamenting with angles, light, camera modes, and different kneeling positons I have finally made progress in the "Product Photography" realm. No, they're not GREAT, but they're better than they were. And all I had to do was buy some foamcore poster board, set up 3 desk lamps, and take pictures on macro while holding a mechanics light in one hand bent in half. Who would have thought it would be that easy? :-) See:



Not perfect....but making progress. Now to work on getting my act togeather to blog things! WOOT! Maybe I'll even get some followers :-D Double WOOT!
