Behind the Scenes

PicMonkey Collage Photoshoot 1 for Book 2 is in the bag. Each time I am in the middle of the complete insanity that is shooting one's own book, I think, "Never again!"

The weight of responsiblity is heavy - the buck totally stops with me when something really isn't working and it is a lot of pressure.  I work with completely the loveliest team though - my stylist is phenominal and my editor is the perfect blend of supportive and directive.  In the end, the design-it-write-it-crochet-it-shoot-it-edit-it madness ends up being totally worth it (but there is a lot of swearing).

Also occupying much of my time is the kit side of the business.  We are making up hundreds of kits for Christmas in the new packaging. By "we" I mean my PA/best friend/godmother to my children/crochet model Kerstin.  She has wound hundreds (if not close to 1000) balls of yarn over the past 2 months. Packed kits, ordered supplies. I actually don't know what I would do without her.

My job in this is to photograph the new packaging. Which is today's task, along with working on Issue 2 of The Crochet Project (out this month) and has involved a lot of dawn photoshoots.  Kinds been worth it though...
