Blogiversary!

Hi! Happy New Year's Eve!

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas. :)

Today is my blogiversary!

In my last post, I asked if anyone had questions for me, here are the questions I received:

Jenna said: I just want to know who taught you to paint? Did you learn on your own or did you take classes?

Great question, Jenna! I have a lovely friend from my Church who has taught me to paint. I started when I was nine and did it for a few years before having a break. Then, I started again this time last year. We get on really well and have a laugh and a paint. :)

Here's a few of my paintings:




Anonymous said: I was wondering what camera you use, and if you had any tips for photography? Thanks!

I have two cameras, but mainly use a Canon Powershot G10. My other (backup) camera is a Canon Powershot SX100 IS. I really enjoy using the G10, which is basically an SLR but with a smaller processor. I am not sure if you can get different lenses for it, though! It gives you much more control over how the photos come out, and is very good. The only downside is that it doesn't have much zoom. My backup camera (I sound so posh, don't I?!!) has a massive 10x zoom, so I use that if I need zoom. It is a great camera for starting out with, if you seriously want to get good at photography!

Tips for photography? Practise, practise, practise! Try different angles, fiddle around in manual mode, check the instructions book for neat tricks, just get out there and shoot! Another thing, for anything small, always turn the macro mode on! 

Another Anonymous said: Happy Blogiversary! Why did you decide, or what inspired you, to start a blog?

Long story short, I had been following other blogs for a while and felt that it would be good to give something back, and contribute to the blog world. Then, on December 31st 2009 (While trying to stay up for the New Year!) I finally started this little blog. :) I am a super-organized person, and have sorted out my tutorials into categories:

I'll be back soon (hopefully) with some more cakes and fabric to show you, as well as a Crafty Review of 2010!

  4. Hi there! Thanks for the answers. I keep checking the blog, but you haven't posted since 2010 and I was wondering if you've stopped it! I'll hang around, though.
