Listing Aprons

I've begun the slow (for me anyway) process of photographing the new aprons and then listing them in my store - CherryPieAprons.  Before I can take the photos I have to iron each apron and let me tell you, I do not enjoy ironing!  I know many people find it relaxing and I wish I could but it just doesn't work for me.  Then there is that camera part to it.  I fiddle and fool around with the camera, with the lighting, with the kitchen props and with the aprons.  I admire the many professional looking photos on etsy but mine just never quite come out the way I would like.  On the bright side though - they are getting better and are so much improved over the photographs I took when I first opened the store!  Here are a couple:

Fall Brown Paisley apron

I really like this fabric.  It reminds me of my mom in the 1960's.  Not sure why but it does.  It's pretty and practical with the large pockets.

Off to Chicago and Boston

We just returned last night from spending two fun and productive weeks in Patzcuaro, Mexico.  And now tomorrow I'm flying out of Mexico City to Chicago for a few days, then on Friday to Boston to visit my oldest daughter for four days.  Then back to Chicago to spend a week with my younger two girls.  On October 2nd I'll return to Mexico City.  I can't tell you how excited I am to see my daughters!  It's been four months since I last saw them and that seems like a really long time to me.

Besides seeing the girls and catching up with friends, I'll be working on my etsy store.  I've made 50 aprons over the last few months and I'll add them to the store and will try to sew a few more while in Chicago.  The busy holiday season is coming up and I don't want to be left behind.

More later...
