Experiencing Photography Class

Well, I'm taking my very first photography class, and I've been really loving it, a lot. And really getting into it. My friend, Ronnie, is a professional photographer, and I've been her official assistant for a few months or so. She's independent, Ronnie Potts Photography.
 She tends to belittle her photography, but she's really fairly brilliant.
I've only gone through two projects in photography class, and just received my third assignment.

Here are some of the pictures I've taken during, and before I started photography class:

Crochet baby blanket

I really hate when people are all,"WHO'S BABY IS THAT FOR?!"

As if I never plan to have children.
Actually, I do plan to have children, in the future, so long as I am fertile.

Anyway, My friend, Ronnie, got me a few kits from someone who was selling them where she works, at the Children's hospital in the area.

I've almost finished the first ball of yarn's worth of my blue baby blanket.

I love it so much, already. i think it's super beautiful.

New haircut, and a bit of catch up.

First things first, I cut my bangs. I like them a lot.

Here I am being a fabulous model for my shitty webcam,


I also have a boyfriend now. He lives across the country, which sucks, but he's adorable and perfect, nonetheless. Probably going to marry him, op.

It's been a while.
But, do not fret. For I am here now.

Chillin' at Barnes & Noble
I've been thinking about my blog more recently. And the fact that I haven't blogged in MONTHS, so I'll probably start blogging again :)

365: Days 33-47

A bit of embroidery:

Some sketching: I want to get a pirate shit tattooed on my other arm.

A bit of knitting: 

And a bunch of other stuff:

Experimenting with needle Felting | How To

Well, I had a blank sheet of brown felt, ordered from Hart's Fabric. I made needle booklet out of a small piece of it, thought I should do some needle felting on the rest of it.
To begin with, here are the BASICS OF NEEDLE FELTING:


Felting Mat, Needle Felting tool. This is what mine look like:

You'll also need some, WOOL. It works better if it is unspun.
Here's what mine looks like, (I've got tons of the stuff.)

Basically, you just poke the wool with your needle in the shape you want it. It's easy. But, it is difficult to achieve what you want. The CONCEPT is easy, I should say.

I wanted the same bird as the one tattooed on my arm. I drew the shape on a piece of paper, cut it out, and traced it on the felt mat. With black pen ink. 

And Then I just started felting. I thought the finished product kinda looks like a seal. What do you think? Maybe if you tilt your head to the left? ha

Anyway, I also decided to outline it with blue embroidery thread. Looks pretty. It would go nicely in a baby boy's room, I think. I need a frame.
