Say what?

I listed a new item in my Etsy shop over the weekend - Sayings Blocks.  There are 5 blocks in the set, each with a different patterned paper backing and with a different saying.  The sayings are:

much love
you're special
you make me happy

I also tried out some new photo backgrounds to add some interest to my photos, such as the colorful tins shown above the a computer keyboard shown here:

I also used a wooden crate as a background, both in the keyboard photo and in this one:

It was fun to be a bit creative with photos.  I had an idea to make a clothesline and hang the Sayings Blocks on it with clothespins, but the ones I had were too big and kept flipping the Sayings Blocks upside down!  It's still an idea I'd like to try, but I'll need some mini clothespins!

So, what do you think of these backgrounds?  Do you have a favorite?

So cute! I was just thinking about how I used to do different backgrounds and props for my Etsy listings. I stopped doing that for some reason -- I think I got lazy :) I always liked but don't think I ever used tea cups and tea pots...
