Eclectic Charm

After spending hours upon hours taking photographs of my own jewelry yesterday, I've again come to the conclusion that there are many, many more people out there with a great deal more talent at this than I have.

There's some amazing artists on Etsy and there's so much to see. I love browsing through people's shops and their treasuries too. It was on a treasury where I discovered ImpulsiveCreativity, actually.

First, the picture stood out. It almost popped out of the page at me. I loved the colors and the design of this oil and vinegar set and it drew me right into her shop where I found a -second- item that I also fell in love with.

Impulsive Creativity has a wide variety of items in her shop. She also does custom orders and all of her items are handmade in a clean, smoke free environment.

If you're looking for gifts for your loved ones, I'd definitely recommend a browse.

Photos can be such a pain. I'm still trying to figure how I can get a little more variety in mine. The walls in our house are that wonderful (sarcasm) wood paneling, mostly. Ew!!

I know what you means. Sometimes the awesomeness of others can be overwhelming. But I think we all have our own style and sense of creativity. :)

Your first line kind of hurt when I read it- so sorry you feel discouraged. While it is true that there is some amazing talent out there, photography is a skill that can be learned. Don't give up! I think you should ask people who you think do it well what pointers they could give you. That's what I do when I feel like I need to improve myself. Some people won't respond, but most people on Etsy are eager to help others. You are a part of the community!!
Also, just wanted you to know I appreciate you following my blog and that I grew up in Kitsap County. I now live in Florida and am very happy to be in the sun :)
Best Wishes,

There are so many amazing artists out there, so I completely understand your statement. That is a great oil and vinegar set! I will have to check out the shop now.

I like the colors as well!

Brousing through etsy, is probably the most inspiring thing ever.
