I bought some crates at a craft store in anticipation of making furniture for Jun's apartment (which I still have not started building). Having seen some photos using crates, I thought they would be nice to use to help seat some of the residents for photo shoots.
First I took photos of the some of the guys for Mother's Day, which I only posted on Instagram. I like these crates. Here are the photos I took:
L-R: Jaquar, Bo, Grayson (yes, he let his hair grow and is showing his real lip color now) and Crain. Good looking crew, right?
I loved using the crates so much that I used them again yesterday to show off some new clothes. I purchased hand crocheted tops from Crafts By Mandee on Etsy. Now, you know how I try to make clothes myself, but there are just times when I can't resist. They were cute and a great price, so I bought four.
Those articulated bodies, by the way, were donated to other ladies (like Lisa, who I felt sorry for since her friend Tasha joined the Display girls and left her) and some are still available should I get more residents, who I totally don't need to invite to live here. I can barely get them all on camera. But I digress. Back to the photos.
So I also had to take at least one individual shot of each.
Isis (this body will also enable her to do more poses in her wedding photos)
Syren (who thinks this upgrade will draw even more suitors - I'm sure she's right)
So back the crates. I love them. They are so versatile. They would also be great in different colors. However, I will resist the urge to buy lots more on an impulse. But I am tempted.
It's the holiday weekend and time for me to get back to work on this baby stuff. We have a baby shower coming up and a trip to the baby store to work on (which means actually having baby stuff in the store).
Thanks for stopping by. ~ Jaye
