I made this little chap today. I think he's rather fetching.

Playing with aperture

I've been experimenting with the aperture on my camera. Had a slight mishap where I got the tripod stuck on the camera and badly scratched said camera trying to get it off. Oh well. It's on the bottom anyway. Above you can see my efforts. I've been going through my3boybarians' photography course (free) '31 days to a better photo'. It's really great for refreshing my photography knowledge.

I used a 50mm lens for these photos.

DIY: Easy to make Washi Valentines decorations

I'm not the most romantic person in the world. However I was looking at my small stack of washi tape and decided to make something with it for Valentines Day.

These hearts are super easy to make.

You get some card (I used drawing card but this would be a great project for using up some cereal boxes) and draw hearts onto it, then cut out the hearts.

Then you stick the washi tape, in whatever pattern you want, over the front of the card and fold down the edges.


Now you have some beautiful heart decorations to do with what you will.

The Year of the Snake

Today is Chinese New Year! And it's the year of the snake. 2013 is the year of the water snake (according to wikipedia). I made this decoration in celebration using my favourite material - felt.
