Summer is finally here and the time has come to do some major photo shoots with Loopy and her friends. Since graduation is soon upon us, Saucy hopes to set up quite a few senior photo shoots to keep her busy with the new camera Veto gave her for Christmas, that she hasn't had neither the time nor inclination to play with yet. That is all about to change.
Saucy spotted a few photos of T Swizzle online sporting this funky bow headband. It's sweet, and headbands and fascinators seem to be all the rage. After a little bit of digging it appeared that poor Taylor purchased her headband from a trendy website and paid a few hundred dollars for it. That's right. Saucy isn't even exaggerating. Jeebus, it's just a headband. Saucy could spot those rhinestone bow thingys a mile away and she knew just where to find them. Enter eBay.
You all know that after cupcakes and photo shoots, Saucy really adores a bargain or a DIY project. The bargain came from eBay, where she found the bows for fifty cents each. The DIY was as simple as stitching five of them together and attaching two black ribbons to each end. It might even be speculated that the ribbon was a castoff from a gift box. Actually come to think of it, it was.
And there it was, in all its glory. A "designer" rhinestone headband for about two dollars and fifty cents. The shipping was free on the eBay order, by the way. Saucy pretty much only buys from vendors who offer free shipping. How about you?
It was nice to get behind the camera again on a softly lit late spring evening. Down by the river where Joni Mitchell wished to put her skates on and teach her feet to fly, the ice is finally melted and the sun dances off the waves and makes a beautiful hair light.
And, as always, Loopy is a willing and beautiful model. Saucy needs to spend some time with the manual for her camera and set Loopy and a few of The Cheerios up to be photographed so she'll be in control for the paying customers again this summer. The flat-rate $100.00 photo shoots begin again soon. Contact Saucy for more information.
Oh, and it looks like we ditched the headband after a while. It could also be used as a necklace so keep your eye out for it in a future shoot. Saucy is off to eBay to find more appliques to create another knockoff masterpiece!
It might actually be happening... Saucy might be getting her mojo back. She feels the need to do projects. Are you feeling it? It was a long, hard winter. It's nice to see the sun again.
