Light Box...A Nice Surprise

Sometimes my husband surprises me.
There are lots of times when I mention something
that I need or want and he appears to not be paying attention.
But, often times, he stores it away and then I'm shocked to find that he indeed was paying attention!
So, when I opened one of my presents at Christmas,
I was so excited to find that he bought me a light box!

Besides writing this blog, I also write a DIY collumn for
Fayette Woman Magazine, a local publication in my community.
And, I know you and the readers of Fayette Woman are sick of seeing my kitchen counters in every picture! 
Well, now you won't have to.
I feel like such a professional!!!

I'm still learning,
but here are some of my first photos
 using my new light box...
I made these ornaments this year using torn book pages,
Washi Tape, & wooden snowflakes.

I think I'm going to like this!!!

Do you use a light box?
Any tips are welcome!

  8. I have a light box and love it! I think it is has greatly improved my blog photos. I'm in Georgia too! I wondered when I saw Fayette

  9. A lot of people don't know the wonder of photographing items in a light box. Great sharing. Also, I pinned your ornaments for next year...too cute!

  10. They look great! I never heard of a light box. You will have to show me.

  11. Those ornaments are the cutest things ever! And your pictures are awesome! How exciting that you got a light box! I would never have even thought to want one...until now! Visiting from SITS.

  12. I'm so jealous!!! I wanted to get one of these for my mother-in-law, but I couldn't find one. Do you know where he got it? I really want one for myself as well.

  13. The ornaments and the photos look great. I'll have to see about getting one of these. Take care - Dawn @ We Call It

  14. O, I don't have a light box but sure do want one.
    Your Christmas balls are adorable and the photos are AMAZING. You are doing great with your new toy. :))
