So, how are your super powers ?

Ah, what a day... !

Got a lot of stuff going all at the same time, waiting for a lot of beads orders to come in, starting a new promotion thread, xmas sale in july, an agenda art contract... Ouf ! Sometimes I feel like I would need super powers !

I felt just like that today.... O_x

Fantasia International Movie Festival

Just a little word on the Fest :

Fantasia is a great movie festival that is hosted one a year in Montreal. You can find anything, really anything, from animation to horror movies, from romance to foreign movies,... You can pretty much see anything you want, anything out of the ordinairy. That Fest is amazing ! I saw gorgeous movies like The Banquet or super cute animation movies, or simply thrilling action scenes.

Ah, we just wish we could borrow super powers sometimes, like to watch all those great movies all at once. Don`t we all need super powers sometimes ?

That`s it for today !

On this, I`ll go work on a new pair of earrings, from the Sunset Collection... :P

Have a nice night folks !

Blooming Passion

Hi everyone ! :P

It is with great honnor that I gladly introduce the very first interview of this blog ! I want you to meet the shop owner of Studio Haus, who is generous, passionate and as sweet as chocolate.

What would you like to tell us about yourself ?

I'm originally from the midwest but recently moved to Pennsylvania and I'm loving it!

When did you discovered your passion for photography ?

I've always loved photos and photography but it wasn't until the summer I was working at a portrait studio that I actually realized that this was something I wanted to do.

Do you have any other passions ?

I do! I love all art, the beach, Paris (I went once and fell in love!), and great friends because they are hard to come by.

All rights Reserved - Copyrights StudioHaus

What type of landscape do you prefer ?

I love waterfalls and beach scenes. Anytime I get a chance to visit either I do!

What artist inspire you the most in your art ?

Definitely Ansel Adams ~ http://www.anseladams.com/
His landscape photography is so inspiring and would love to travel to all the beautiful places he did.

Your perfect photography trip ?

Oh gosh, its hard to say just one place but I would really love to go Yellowstone. I think the landscapes there would make for some amazing photos.

One tip you would give to starter photographer ?

I think my best tip would be that clouds are your best light diffuser! I always thought that I needed bright sunlight but found that it causes harsh shadows and washes out details on beautiful flowers and waterfalls. Just before or just after a storm can create some great lighting (and sometimes lightning so be careful!) and lead some awesome shots.

What type of camera do you use ?

Actually *blush* I use a Kodak point-n-shoot. I'm saving for a Cannon 50D and can't wait to get my hands on one!

What lead you to open your Etsy account ?

I wanted to see if there is anyone out there who likes my photos as much as I do. Etsy was an easy way to either be rejected or justified.

If you could add another product to your store, neverminding the budget, what would it be ?

Oh it would definitely be canvas prints. Those look so amazing and I love how they make a photo look like a painting!

What do you like the most about having your Etsy shop ?

The community aspect of Etsy is amazing. All the support and tips have really helped me improve my shop from where I started a year ago.

What would be your typical day ?

Well mornings are mostly listing and networking through twitter and facebook. My afternoons are spent exercising, doing chores, and taking care of the mundane things. Evenings I try to spend time with my husband until he goes to bed (really early!). I more of a night person so I stay up late editing photos and this is usually when I list new photos into my shop.

Do you exhibit in galeries, restaurants ? Do you exhibit at craft fairs ?

I have done a few crafts fairs and will be doing a few in the fall. I will be posting on my blog or facebook with the shows and dates.

Where can we contact you ? Do you sell somewhere else ?

I only sell on Etsy and at shows.

Hi there !

It was so fun today, I finally got to went to Jean Talon market and now my fridge is full of delicious fruits and vegies ! I couldn`t take all that I wanted, since it started raining so I had to run back to the subway before getting drentch.

But everything is fine, I got my mangos ! :P Yuuuummy !

Just wanted to tell you what is going to be on the menu for the next few weeks. Yup, more items on the way and part-time job, but I will start soon to interview Etsy shop owners and share my wonderful discoveries here ! :P
