There are so many things I want to crochet right now but I have neither the time nor concentration.

Hey nerds, so I figured I should do something special, seeing as how I have OVER 2500 FOLLOWERS now! It’s so exciting! And I just wanted to say thank you, even if only in a really small way.

So this will be a standard giveaway type deal, reblog this post by August 29, 2014 and after that I’ll pick a random person to get one of the crochet hooks above (although maybe two or three hooks, we’ll see how much money I have after I buy stuff for school). You don’t have to be following me, just get your name on the list of notes!

I really love these crochet hooks, by the way. I don’t even use the light that much, but i like how the handle is bigger than regular metal or plastic hooks. Hopefully whoever wins likes them too!

the-reporters-dog said: Hello~! I'm a new amigurumi maker (or new to blogging about it, at least), and I was wondering if I could ask for some pointers on taking pictures of my work? You seem to have both the making and photographing part down. (My yarn blog is a side blog, otherwise I would be contacting you from that. Sorry -_-;)

Here is the post I’ve blogged a few weeks ago. Hopes this helps… :)

Ive recently had a lot of people asking what type of light box, I believe thats what its called, do I use. and if I have any tips for taking pics to show their items.

I honestly just use 2, SOMETIMES 3, white boards I bought from joanns at a really cheap price. And a desk light I had for the longest time, which I got at Hobby Lobby.

(Sorry for the messy room. haha)

Once I’m done taking as many pics of the item(s), I then upload the pics to Photoshop to make it a bit brighter. Which can be done by going to IMAGE> ADJUSTMENTS>CURVES…

image

I then move the cursor up and make it as bright as I want the pic to be. Once I like the way it looks, I select OK.

And thats really all I do. :)

And AFTER.

I also like to crop my pics into a perfect square, but that’s just me. :)

I literally just use an A3 piece of paper, and I think my photos turn out pretty ok. :)

Amigurumi Llama.
I’m quite happy with this little guy; I made him without following a pattern.
He needs a name. Anyone have any ideas?

Hello all! Apart from crocheting, I read an awful lot, and so I’ve made a blog for that too! I’ll be posting just general thoughts about books and things over there. Nothing too formal, just me getting my thoughts out there! So if you like books, I’d love to talk to you about them!

I felt like making up a pattern, so I’m currently making this! Excuse my messy handwriting in the back.

I spent today finishing off a snail I started about a month ago and making a paper Dalek whilst listening to the audiobook ‘Pest Control’.  I usually don’t like audio books too much, but I quite enjoyed this one; I probably liked it because it was read by David Tennant, so you got to here him as the Doctor, which was great. Also, it was funny to here him do Donna.
