Greetings everyone, I bet you are all out shopping for Christmas gifts. My wife and I are going to photograph some of her latest bead jewelry today. It will be a bit of a slow process as we will photograph one item, cleanup the image, post it on our Etsy shop and then tweet and post to Facebook.
Below are a couple of photos of “Le Studio” showing our setup for making all of this happen. As I don’t have any jewelry to photograph at this moment, I set up my lighting using a couple of race cars as subjects. Please friend use on Facebook to see the stream of photos as the will be mostly be getting posted there.
Hi everyone, Mark here. As I sit here typing away at my keyboard listening to holiday music on Pandora, I just wanted to let you know that the Gar-Field Orchestra Boosters annual Holiday Craft Show will be this coming weekend: Saturday, December 10th at Gar-Field Senior High School.
Saturday, December 10th
14000 Smoketown Rd,
If you have never been to this event, in my opinion, it is the largest craft show in all of Prince William County during December. Don’t spend your time fighting the crowds at Potomac Mills for a present that was made in some factory. Come to the craft show where you can purchase real “artisan creations” at very affordable prices.
Marie Antoinette and I will be there along with some of her new bead jewelry I will be photographing this week. You can watch her as she makes a new bead jewelry creation live, during the show.
Please friend us on our Facebook page for the latest information, sales and events.
I hope to see you there, mention this blog post and get a little something extra with your purchase at the show.

There was a great turnout at Fox Mill Elementary School in Herndon, Virginia for their 2011 Holiday Craft Show. Unlike last year when there was a sudden snow storm, this year was nice and sunny. Many people came out to the show but not so many that it made it difficult for them to look at all the vendors had to offer and there were some very unique offerings including one vendor that had hand painted shoes and other things.
CorseCrafts was very fortunate to have attended this year as the event becomes more and more crowded every year. Customers enjoyed a special $5 discount on bead jewelry purchases of $25 or more. One customer purchased 3 items!
Next weekend, Saturday, December 10th, will mark our last craft show for the 2012 year that we will participate in. Please join us along with about one hundred other vendors as we help make someone’s Christmas wish come true at Gar-Field Senior High School in Woodbridge, Virginia.
We are looking forward to participating in three solid weekends at Mr. B’s Bluegrass Park October Festival. The event is located in Woodford, Virginia and it looks very exciting for the entire family!
