Family photoooooo πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ If you ever feel like you don't have all the gear & equipment & bells & whistles you need to get the job done, stop. You do. πŸ‘‘πŸ‘‘
You don't NEED all that; they're just nice to have. Would a professional photo studio or a good camera be nice to have for this photoshoot? You betcha! Is it impossible to do the work without them? Not if you really want to. (If you think this setup is basic, btw, I should show you my DIY held-together-by-tape glue tube that I use as the main tool for my beadwork. You'll die laughing πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜‰)
Whatever you think is stopping you from doing what you want, find a way to work around it. Instead of focusing on having "that" ask "what's the result 'm after?" Then find a digferent way to get there.
Once I realized what was holding me back (oodles of money for profesh photo shoot), I googled how to take product pictures with phone camera and voila! The internet is your playground. Go play. Whatever you're trying to do, someone's already made a post or video on how to get it done. Go find it and get unstuck.
P.S. photos turned out pretty good and definitely better than any other ones I've taken so far. I'll be posting some soon and submiting them for gallery entries, too (wish me luck! πŸ€πŸ€ž)

Working on color gradation for bunny's back and kind loving how it's turning out 🀩 Whatcha think? πŸ€”

A very personal piece made for one of my favorite people. I'm very proud of how it turned out and very grateful for the time I got to spend on and with this piece.
It's how we arrange our beads that gives meaning, and not meaning that arranges the beads.

A restaurant that lets you write on the walls & windows (& pretty much anywhere)? I think we're in our element πŸ€£πŸ€—

Great work of bead art with even greater message by @smky_arts . Inspired by a conversation about how "sad and unsafe it is for children hawking on the streets of Benin City when they are supposed to be in the safety of schools or their homes." πŸ’•

Ever wondered how czech bead hanks are made? πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ 12 needles at a time and handled by hand by these homeworkers! So fascinating! Also, imagine having all these beads in your house 😲 Heaven! 😍

You just have to be you and I, me and we must both love what our animal loves. It's easy to lose sight among all the "shoulds" and "woulds" and "musts" dangling before our eyes. But in the end, we must always come back to love--each our love.
