Slowly over the next month I will be taking new photos for my Etsy shop. A couple years ago I re-shot my items to all have a cohesive white background. The white background really made my items pop, a very important thing for anyone who sells their products on the web. But I am getting a little burnt out on seeing the same minimalist look of a white background that everyone seems to have these days. So Owynn and I went scouting yesterday for a new spot to take photos. The old farm next door has a barn that has a great wall of sun-washed fir siding. I think it will make the perfect backdrop for my items. I do not have as much time as I used to have so when I used to switch backgrounds I would do it all at once but life is different now so my plan is over the next month to get my shop slowly updated with a new look. I think it is is good to keep things new and fresh, always changing… As a maker I get bored making the same items over and over so when time allows I change designs, and create new ones. It is always a bit sad to see favorite items lots in the dust but sometimes I bring them back updated.

~The bags above I made for the farmers market this weekend, but hoping to get them in the shop soon. Feel free to email me if you would like to purchase either of them!

    Hi Lissa, I think this beautiful barn wall does make a splendid background for your leather creations :o)

    The warm colour of the square pouch is quite nice, by the way. Although I’ve always liked the natural, lighter colour as well…

    And what an inspiring feather!

    There’s nothing like old barn wood! New product photos look great! Hope you are enjoying summer. I was just thinking how, a month from now, it will be noticeably darker in the evenings. How quickly it all goes by!
