    Thank you Trina! I've been wondering if a light box would work better for my photos. Now I can try it!

    I think I'll try it. DH has been wanting to buy me one every year for Christmas for the last several years. I probably should let me, but, I think he'll go for this too!

    I made the light box and love it. Cards are the main thing that I use it for. When taking pictures of cards that I have made can shoot picture straight on and don't get any background so that they can be cropped close for use on blogs. Am going to try it for some old photo's that I need for a Making Memories book.

    Thanks, Trina - Getting good pics is one huge challenge for me, especially when I usually end up taking pics of finished work at night. I seriously need to build one, but will plan it out for making one I can break down and not always leave out.

    Exactly!! Most of my photos are taken at night and with limited space, one that could be broken down would be awesome.

    At one time I had bookmarked (i thought!) someone's idea for wrapping a large, translucent storage tub in quilt batting to diffuse the light from a couple of small, clip-on lights. It was so simple! And who doesn't have a bin like this!

    Has anyone made one of these? I am curious as to what kind of lights you use.
