I made a light box! I workshopped a few titles for this post: “I have finally seen the light. Box.” and “Blinded by the light. Box” and while they are all terrible and not even puns, I am happy with my choice. I trust you find it hilarious? No?
I`m getting sidetracked. I scoured the internet (ie. looked on Pinterest) for a DIY light box tutorial and after finding several hundred and looking at the first two I saw, I made one and I LOOOOOOOVE it! How have I not done this sooner? Gone are the days when you can look at my pictures and think to yourselves “Look how dirty her windows are,” “That laundry in the background needs folding,” “Is that a diaper? On the kitchen table? Get yourself together woman!” Actually, those days aren`t gone because the light box is fairly small and try as I might, I can`t fit Thomas in it so you will still be able to sneak peeks at the disarray that is our home in countless pictures – but my crafty things will look pretty!
Check this out!
Not bad for a cardboard box, dollar store tissue paper, bristol board and a clamp light!
The next step will be to change out the backgrounds to add a little more colour because looking at all these images posted here, it is lacking any vibrancy. I will experiment and show you the results. I know that you are all (and by you I mean my dad and sisters whom I force to read this blog by sending endless texts asking what they thought. I am so lame.) holding your breath and waiting on the edges of your seats so I will do this with my usual attention to timeliness – see you in February!
