Crafts: Friday Night Fun!

2 Sep

Okay so I’m not going out and doing anything crazy cool tonight.. I know, I know, depressing. Instead I’m crafting 😛 After a long day with two whiny babies I needed a getaway so I zoned out and painted.

Here’s what I’ve been working on:

A yarn wrapped letter! Which is a lot harder than I thought it was going to be and definitely not finished. Once I figure out how to get passed my stumped zone I’ll fill you in on the secrets 😉

An unfinished owl order. I’ve got a few more things to finish (eyes and beak), adding some letters, and some minor touch ups and I’ll be shipping this out sooner than I thought I was!

A new addition to my frame family 😀 I think he’s cute and fun!! What do you all think?

And now.. since it’s 10:30 and I’m feeling lazy – I’m back to crocheting. After I finish up this scarf I plan on doing one in bright blue. Can you tell that I’m in a bright blue mood lately? 😛

Have a great weekend everyone!

Love Always,

“Having a passion for the visual arts and storytelling from a young age, I developed into a film student. In February of 2008, I graduated with a Bachelor Degree of Film from Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL. My passion for photography has grown over the last few years as it’s become more than a hobby to me. I strive to constantly grow as a photographer.” – LEDPhotography

Q&A

What got you interested in photography?

Photography for me is an expression of how I see the world. It gives everyone an eye into bits of my perception. That is why I got into photography. 

What has been your favorite picture to take and why?

I can’t really narrow it down to a favorite picture. I really enjoy taking photos of flowers and nature because it’s like making something new out of something age-old.

What’s the secret behind your etsy name?

The secret behind my Etsy name is an easy one. It’s my name, Larissa Elizabeth Distler!

If you could open up a shop in your town what would you call it and what would it be like?

Honestly the physical store I would open up would be called Ellipsis Books and More. It would sell vintage books and have a tea house. I want to grow my own teas and have baked goods and homemade jams. The business plan would be to become a totally sustainable business within five years. And of course part of that would be promoting local artists and musicians.

What is the most challenging thing you have photographed?

The most challenging thing to photograph is children. They are always moving!

What are some of your goals you hope to achieve within the next year?

Within the next year I hope to be able to offer portrait photography and to have an online Ellipsis totally off the ground. 

What inspires you to take pictures?

Life inspires me to take pictures. There is always something worth recording. 

What is your best quality when it comes to your photography?

I think my best quality when it comes to photography is my willingness to use natural lighting. 

If you could have one thing to help your etsy store what would it be?

More business would definitely help my Etsy store! And a new lens for my camera!

Love Always,
