Advertising Photography by C. Vallese

Previously I had mentioned that my sister is a photographer. I have asked her (and she has agreed!) to be my photographer for my jewelry and accessory lines. 

Here is the first set: 

I wanted an autumn and bohemian look for these photos, she did a great job!

Back to School 2012 Indie Garage Sale

Just wrapped up my favorite local sale, the Indie Garage Sale! I worked out this brand new set up. The side displays are made from inexpensive crates, spray paint, and the bottoms and tops are covered with Mod Podge and scrapbook paper. I used some yarn and some clothespins to hang my small 8"x10" prints. 

Also made this great little chalk board price signs. I think in total they cost me about $5 to make. Much more versatile than the paper signs.
