My Mini Photo Studio and My Workspace Full of Retro Cafe Art Goodness! (WOYWW)

Good Morning!  This will be a quick on today due to the whole vacation thing, but a few of you asked to see the light box and light photo studio set up, so I decided to share that today along with my desk shot.  I don't have anything super fancy set up, just two IKEA Lack tables side by side with the light box and lights.  Oh.  And Domos.  One in a panda suit.  They protect the photo station.  Just say'n.


My Mini Photo Studio


Beneath the table I keep my stash of bristol and canva-paper along with the bags of the cards I create, my heat gun, and my flower frogs.  I like the set up and it seems to be working well so far!

Here is my desk at the moment:

Not quite as messy as usual, but I DID just get a BUNCH of fun new stuff from Retro Cafe Art and I can't WAIT to play with it!!!

So...that's my desk for now!  I hope you have enjoyed the peek!  Have a Happy Wednesday and don't forget to check out the rest of the participants over on Julia's blog!

  1. Your new light box is GREAT! I think I really DO need to invest in one because the dilapitated three-sided poster board I've been using in this poorly lit room is SO NOT WORKING! Have a fun day, lil' Jen!

  11. Well I skipped back to see the photo booth results - definitely worth having, such a professional finish (love the martini card!). And yes, you did get some new goodies. Yummy, almost enough to just slew over the desk like Mrs Cool Jingle. Have fun!

  29. Love the photo box - you're very lucky to have it set up 24/7. Wish I could do the same, but I have to share my space with a big guest bed!

    Enjoy playing with the new stash!
