Going back to the old school

I recently upgraded my camera and decided I want to put myself out as a Photographer. I mean it’s a HUGELY competitive field, but I have to try. In preparation for this, I got contacts [because glasses are no bueno]. I’m going to play with film photography.

This desire was brought on by me playing with an instant film camera- I think it will give me a sense of accomplishment and an appreciation for shots. I’m excited.

I’ve not been making much lately, but I’ve been drawing and writing in a journal for therapeutic reasons. I’ll show you guys some of my drawings and photos. There should be some cool pictures coming Monday- my boyfriend and I are going to a Garden in Wetumpka called “Jasmine Hill” which has replicated Greek ruins and a statue of Athena.

Mainly I’ve been playing video games, mainly Rune Factory 4. Which, by the way, is really cute. REALLY CUTE.

News:

Hi there, I’m not dead, just under motivated. But, I’ve been making things again like:

And a blue peace sign macrame bracelet that I haven’t posted yet.

I’ve been doing a lot with my new job lately, it requires me, for the time being, to build full webpages and test them extensively. So, I guess I’ve made like 3 websites. Essentially from scratch. But, I’m back, guys. I promise. I’ll be posting pictures and some random little jewelry crafts. I think I’ll play with resin again, since I have some ideas.

I would crochet some scarves or something, but it’s the summer and I don’t have the patience for working with lace weight yarn.

I’ve been drawing again

As you can see, I’ve been keeping busy. I keep forgetting that my name is Wynn of “ALL” trades, and drawing and photography would count as trades. Although I’ve strayed from the original concept of this blog. But it’s expanded, and I suppose that’s a good thing.

Tomorrow, I’ll be out with my best friend, but I should be making a post about something in the next week.~

Sewing roundup!

Convertible top; A convertible top that can be worn 4 different ways. Wonderfully cute and versatile, and pretty easy to boot!

Cute over the shoulder bag; A cute bag pattern, this would be a nice beach day bag. :3

Tulip Skirt; This skirt is an adorable pattern. I can see it being gorgeous in a silky, light fabric. Maybe floral?

Men’s shirt to peplum; I love peplum shirts so much I can’t stand it. I messed up royally last time I tried, maybe I’ll try again.

Long Circle Skirt!!!!!; I LOVE circle skirts, I really need to make this.

 

Here’s a sewing roundup to inspire some sewing, these are really just too cute. Tomorrow I’m going to get a seam ripper and work on my sewing machine cover, then I need to do one of these.

Headwrap almost done!

I say ALMOST because I’m planning to attach a piece of fabric to it. Perhaps pink or blue, for contrast. If I go with pink, maybe a floral pattern. Or, light blue. I’ll check out my fabric stash tomorrow and see what may work, or I’ll go to walmart and check out some fat quarters or the discard bin.

I’m not sure what I’ll make next- Crocheting for hours at a time makes my hands feel really odd and clumsy. Maybe my next project will be a small scale knitting project. I think I’m ready to knit again after the kitty scarf ordeal. That burnt me out fairly well. xD

I’ll probably have some idea about a knitting project tomorrow. I’ll have my sewing table on the 22nd and be able to sew things again. :3

cool!

But yeah, stuff’s happening and after finals, it’s very likely that lots of stuff will be happening. I’m going to take a couple of semesters off to indulge my hobbies and interests before I get caught up in special courses and mathematics.

Drooling over Yarn.com Patterns

I scouted through the pages of free patterns on yarn.com and came across these (and more!) I only scouted up to the Classic Elite yarn patterns before I quit for the day. I’ll scout through again and bring you even more impressive patterns from this site. Of course, there’re lots of paid patterns that I’m eye-balling, I may share some of those with you guys in another post [I like to keep things free on this end]. I hope you guys like these and I’ll be posting something shortly on a project. I’m kind of itching to pick up knitting needles again thanks to these patterns.
