Further Animal Treasuries

Where has this month gone ?

Well... I've been working a temporary 3/4 time job at my friend's ranch, helping her get ready for this upcoming winter... probably only have a couple more days there and then I'll be able to once again fully focus on my handcrafts & art supply online businesses.

So the latest news is that I bought a studio photography light set (plus camera tripod) and also hunted for some high quality faux-stone motif wallpaper which I want to use as a background surface for my work. I will be setting all that up in a new studio photo shoot area and will begin the long task of re-photographing all my Brizel Silk Tapestry wares. But first... I'll take pictures of some newly made floral theme Silk Tapestry Boxes which were created last month and await listing into the Brizel Handcrafts studio on Artfire.

In the meantime, my work with Team EFA dominates my online work... posting features & announcements on a daily basis at the EFA blog site... supporting EFA's team leader with the work... and creating animal theme Treasuries promoting EFA members' work.

Here are my latest EFA TEAM Treasuries


"Here is a lovely selection
of marine animals by Team EFA members...
its a festival of whales, dolphins, seals and turtles !

As you view this wondrous Treasury-
please send our brothers and sisters of the oceans
goodwill & protection this day."

Wishing all my friends & family
a continuing Happy Autumn !
