I just looked at that pattern and saw something more. Something more complicated and delicate. So, being inspired by this pattern, I started a project unlike one I had ever done before (sorta).....
When I'm done with it, I'll share with you. But until then, you'll have to live in suspense!! :o)

I finally found and purchased labels for my products! I LOVE them and just had to brag on them. I ordered them through Jennifer's Jewels. She's very friendly, has a huge selection of patterns, and was the only label person I could find who offered smaller quantities for order (because contrary to popular belief...I'm not in need of 80,000 labels yet). I personally think the labels I purchased are pretty sweet. What do you think?
Too cute, right? :o) I'm VERY happy with them!

Here are some tips I've picked up along the way (and REMEMBER I am NOT an expert by any means....these tips have just been ones I find most beneficial in improving the shots I take):
I have seen quite a few bloggers (who's pictures are worth their salt) say they sometimes take upwards of 50-100 shots of one thing just to capture 2-3 GOOD shots! If you want a good shot....take LOTS of shots!! (Hey....my memory card can hold 500-600 shots....why not take more than 2?)
There's no law out there (at least I think there isn't...you never know) that says you have to get the WHOLE person in your photo. :o)
(Can you see the window screen in the photo? Hee hee :o))
And last but not least...
#4 ~ Don't be afraid of photo editing. It won't bite....I promise.
I chose this to be last because honestly photo editing was something I feared....well, maybe "feared" is not the best word....
Have you ever had that dream (nightmare really) where ALL of your photos were destroyed because you tried to edit them and they were completely damaged forever? Ok, maybe I'm the only one....
Seriously, it won't happen that way! You can edit and play around all you want! Take that baby out for a test drive!!
Of course if you have photoshop or something, then by all means use it!!
Well, that's all I've got....I hope you gleaned something what what I've learned so far. I know I have a lot of learning left to do, but hey....it's a start, right? :o)
