Keep It Simple....

Anyone else ever find themselves overthinking things??? It seems as though sometimes I have a tendency to make things ALOT harder than they truly need to be. Let's take for example taking pictures of my cards indoors. I took the time to build a small light "tent"/box out of foam board....it was too small. Like a man, I think..."self my box must be bigger". So my dear hubby and I build a bigger light box. Added some daylight work lamps...and still not the results I wanted.
Here comes the "simple part"... my daughter cleans out her room the other day. I end up with a white bookshelf in the basement. Well that was an uhh...duhhh. Put the card on the empty shelf and take your picture Eva. Even better, don't use the special light lamps. Just go with the flash on the camera. Jeeze...reallly??? Yeap! One step better...no photoshop yet. Picnik to the rescue! Amazing!!! So for this week I have picture taking of my cards figured out, lol.
