I made a light box!

I used this tutorial to make the EASIEST light box ever for taking photos. I was sick and tired of waiting for the sun to come out before I could take some pictures. I had to purchase the lamps, but they were only $7.00 each at Canadian Tire. It took me two minutes to set it up and a little longer to figure out how to adjust the light balance on my camera, but not much.

I'm pretty darned happy with the first pictures I took.

Here's a sample:

My head is feeling much better today, but I've taken soooo much medication in the past two days that I'm feeling crappy from that. I've never taken Excedrin Migraine before, and I don't think I ever will again. My heart was racing after I took it. I wasn't too happy about that.

Tonight we will be finishing up the big clean-up in preparation for the new furnace installation. They will be replacing it tomorrow. I can't wait until that is all done!

How very cool and professional-looking! Drugs scare me. I took Imitrex with my decongenstant the other night and had a horrible night's sleep. I slept for 11 hours and woke up not very rested. *sigh*. Maybe there's a new drug out there for you?

Very cool. I was kind of rolling back to your last pic of fabrics your Mom bought and really, what a difference the light box thing-y makes. And hey, slow down a bit ..
