Christmas is finally over (a sweet relief, working retail) and although 2015 has been a pretty rough year for me, I was thinking this morning that I have quite a bit to be thankful for.
This is going to sound pretty materialistic, but I was able to gift myself all 3 of my top wishlist items for Christmas this year:
- A new Wacom tablet. And it’s magical.
- A mini photography studio, which is what I’m gonna talk about in a bit.
- A serger. FINALLY! I’ve only been saying I need to purchase one for the past 5 years.
These are all tools I’m planning on using often in the coming year and it’s a relief to say I have them in my possession.
That said, I’m QUITE geeked out about my mini studio. It’s a Foldio portable studio with LED lights and 4 backdrops (white, black, gray, green) and it cost me $55 from Photojojo with a $20 off coupon (which you can also use by clicking here).
I absolutely love it and I know it’s going to come in handy for all kinds of small stuff, including jewelry that I make. My only gripe about it is that it’s a cube. I think if it has been shaped like a landscape rectangular cube, it would allow for some better photos of some larger items.
They sent me this dinosaur and a pin with my order. OBVIOUSLY is was the perfect first subject to photography. Photo taken with Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
But it works great for small scale objects, and that’s probably most of what I’ll really be using it for.

What it looks like in all its glory.
