Making of a bonnet | Video

Itching to make a video today. Raining outside – already made a video of that. Hmmmm….I’ll make a short video showing clips of me making a bonnet! Not instructional. Just entertainment. I love making these sweet little props!

Total time making the bonnet would’ve been close to maybe 45 min start to finish. With making the video it took FOREVER! haha

I’ll have a super sweet video to share next, hopefully, if all goes well Thursday!! Stay tuned!

(Oh! If you have a Vimeo account follow me and I’ll share the love!)

Lots Going On

Feeding off my last post I wanted to let you know there’s been lots going on behind-the-scenes at LinnyJo Designs.

I’m gearing up for what will hopefully be my best year yet!!

Here’s a little peek of what I’ve been doing (excuse the cell phone pics)

Photo Jan 18, 7 50 52 PM Photo Jan 19, 6 01 40 PM Photo Jan 19, 8 21 43 PM Photo Jan 21, 5 32 58 PMTop to bottom: PVC pipes for backdrop stand assembly, 4 yards of vinyl for newborn posing nest assembly, me sewing the vinyl together, and the final backdrop stand completed.

I’d show you the newborn nest completed but I don’t have the bean bag filler in yet so it just looks like a shapeless lump of vinyl. Hopefully it will arrive by the end of the week. I’m so excited to see it done!! And for my first use out of it!

I’ve ordered some cute Valentine’s Day props and of course I’m making a few of my own. Hoping it all comes together in the next week or two so I can offer some Valentine’s sessions for the babies.
