Happy Birthday to Me!

That's right, the mama behind Macaroni and Glue is turning (drumroll please...) 35 this weekend! And just lookie lookie what's on its way to my house, courtesy of my faaaaaaaaabulous husband.


Yes! A real light cube! Finally, I can send that cardboard/tissue paper monstrosity I created several months ago to the recycle bin where it belongs. I could not be more excited. After lots of looking around and reading reviews, I decided to go with the 20" EZCube from Table Top Studios. Did I mention how great my husband is? 'Cause, for a pop-up meshy thing, light cubes are NOT cheap. And this is the very same husband who, not more than a month ago, purchased (and even paid for expedited shipping) a brand new Canon Powershot A650 IS for me when my beloved camera met a tragic end on our tile kitchen floor during a product shoot. I can't imagine what my face must have looked like at that moment... I can only assume it was bad since I swear I've never seen him make an electronics purchase so quickly.

Guess what else? I just tracked my light cube package and it's coming TODAY! Woohoo! Have a great weekend, everybody. You know I will. Now, which is the darkest room in the house...

And turning 35 this weekend? Why, you're just a baby! I've been 35 for months. :)

Have a great birthday and have fun playing with this.

do you have to have the lights too or can you make do with something round the house (tries to do it on the cheap again!)

I'm using clip lights with "dayliight" bulbs and I'm thrilled with the results. Will try to post pics of my set-up in the near future.

Congrats! on the birthday AND the light cube. We're fighting with a tissue/cardboard one right now, but may have to spends some bucks to get a REAL one.

So fun! I admit that I got one for the holidays last year but have yet to put it to use... can't wait to hear how you like it!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! That's what I have right now-a tissue & cardboard box light box, ughhhh! I'm also in need of a new camera. I've dropped my so many times, that now when it's on, it makes a winding sound which makes the pic blurry...you have to shake it to stop the noise, which in turn fixes the blurry quality, go figure! LOL
