Happy New Year!
It's that time of the year to reflect back on the old year and look forward to the new one. Each year, I take time to evaluate what worked and what did not work for my shop. Hopefully many of you have already put together your 2011 Operating Plan and if you have not, don't fret, get out a piece of paper or a word document and start working on it today. This is where I also remind you to sign up for our new Team Critiques. One of my initiatives this year (as every year) is my shop's appearance, (photo quality, theme, etc.) The majority of my photos have a white background, and since I suffer from Background Envy, this week's interesting finds are not about the product in the photo, but the background:
The first background that I love is this one from Ikabags and while the photo may be a little dark, I just imagine how great that wood panel would look in color:
The next one is from Pansy Maiden's Shop. I don't know why, but I love this bright red door, and it's doesn't overwhelm the bag, because of the white step and wall...
and here is another one from her shop:
How about these two from Beesnetta's Shop. Look at how the bag just pops out of this photo
and I do love the look of a rustic chair and how the item is not centered in the photo....
Until next week, Happy Sewing!
