I Heart My Camera

These are the bracelets I made from my illicit ebay button binges. They will be up on my etsy shop by the end of this week (internet connection willing)

This may come as quite a shock....

...but today, for the first time in seven months, I picked up a pencil and made a few sketches.

I have the vague notion of turning these into an autumn promo postcard, or, depending on how organised I get, a Christmas promo card, but the main thing is, I drew. Whoa.
Cat tagged me last week to display what's on my desktop. Well, at the moment I am at my mum's, so what I have here is the family desktop, complete with obligatory tea:

For some reason the family computer doesn't have any kind of "paint" programme, so I had nowhere to paste my screen capture, so a photo of the screen will have to suffice.:

See, I have the Illustration Station forum constantly on.

My own computer for PhotoShop and the like is directly opposite this one on a baby desk, but I don't have it connected to the internet.

I finally received my LOVELY new camera last week, and this has been the first chance I've had to have a proper play with it. I LOVE it. Seriously. If it offered me a dirty weekend away in Brighton, I'd take it. It's already a million times better than my little point-and-shoot Samsung and I've barely begun to use it properly. I sat myself down yesterday afternoon and worked my way through the manual taking random pictures of the coffee table, but I thought I'd use it today to take a few snaps of my latest WIP, a pair of wrist warmers/fingerless gloves knit in gorgeous Freedom Spirit:

Check out the depth of field on that first one. Yum. I can already see this camera and I going places. One of my New Life Resolutions is to take more photos and that'll be a doddle on this baby.

So chuffed!

Many, many thanks to Not-as-lovely-as-he-was-but-still-pretty-spesh Jon for buying it for me.
