Learning to make a light box

I find that taking photos is one of the hardest things I have to do, and I still love it. I take and retake the photos, trying to make them perfect for my shop on etsy.
I made a light box myself from what I learned on this site. Take a look .
It's a simple way of making this lightbox , with minimal materials and cost.
The directions are to the point and you can use materials you most likely have in your house right now.

My husband is a musician. He plays horn, flute and keyboard. He sings Jazz, and standards and all sorts of music. I thought I'd try to post some of his music so you can listen. He plays locally in Rhode Island and Mass. Is available for weddings, birthdays and any celebration!http://www.johnnytmusic.com

Take a look at his website and enjoy..as I figure out how to put music on my blog!


I'm learning a new style. BLING...

Pink cyrstals, sterling silver..becoming one of my favorite things.

Using beautiful freshwater pearls and sterling silver chain and componets. It's so much more fun to produce a well made prodeuct! I want to keep most of them for myself!

The sun just came out here in Rhode Island so I better go catch it while its here!!!

Going to go sit out with Jack.

Beaded lanyards handmade by Debsdesigns401!

Finally a new post in this blog.
It's been so rainy here on the east coast, there has been no motivation. But today, the sun is out...and I'm ready to go out and work in the yard, and maybe sit at the pool.
Have been posting new listings in my ETSY shop...
check it out at
Working on some new lanyards.
I love lanyards
I make them from nice beads and they are functional and pretty.
Check them out in my shop on etsy and here.
They are all double crimped for safety, and I now can make them with a strong magnet so they are break a way for those who require them made that way! I can adjust any one here in my shop either way for a custom finish.
Hope to see you soon.
