New light box!

It’s now at the point where I feel like I can start doing the things I had been planning on doing for a while, but just wasn’t able to make enough time.  More work has been happening in my parents’ kitchen.  The cabinet doors are just about finished and I have to tell you that it will be a  happy day when these are not taking up all the spare room in our basement.

They look good, though!  Paint started going up on the walls on Saturday. My mom picked out Gracious Greige as the wall color.


Paint going up.


It looks a little darker here than in real life. John and I will be doing the countertop in a couple weeks. Laminate sheeting. I did that in our old house. Not my favorite thing to do as it is unwieldly and has to be really precise, but the results are good.

I got a new toy to play with – a new light box! ( my amazon link). My old one I made of cardboard kind of bit the dust. It was only $20, too. Right in my budget.


Me messing around with the setup:


It comes with some different background covers, but I’ll use my own that aren’t wrinkled LOL! The nice thing about this is that it folds back up (with some finagling) into the little pouch for storage.  It’s about the size of a Frisbee, which is pretty cool!


This is for taking new photos for the business. It’s going to take some work figure all the lighting out. It’s fun so far, but really time consuming.



So while John was away, I kept myself quite busy. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I don’t have to do everything all at once. It’s not like the world will end tomorrow and I have to get everything finished right now.  It’s time for a spa day 😀

    Your new lightbox looks awesome! I miss my original lightbox. It was fantastic–even if it was just a cardboard box. I don’t know why but it was just perfect at getting the right light and when I replaced it with something else, I never got the same good looks. I definitely want to check out the one you got! Thanks 🙂

    My hubby bought me a Nikon for Christmas 2015 and I cringe when I say I’ve used it maybe 4 times. I just can’t get the knack for anything up close – which is all I really want it for. Lots to learn.

    You should take a picture with and without the light box. I’m curious to see the difference!
