My (minor) obsession with cameras has been well documented. So a few months ago I bought this lovely Polaroid Land Camera 1000 off ebay.
Now, the fact that Polaroid film is no longer being made is something of an issue, but fortunately I had heard about The Impossible Project, and their amazing work in recreating Polaroid film. So obviously I had to buy some!
So my first attempt may not be the greatest of quality (yes, Domo was my test subject) but at least the camera works! As you only get 8 exposures at a time I’m very wary about wasting them, so I’m going to wait for a sunny day to try my next one, that’ll be 2012 at the earliest then.
I haven’t really had time to do anything very exciting to my nails recently, but the other day I had a few spare minutes to play around with some of the wonderful Barry M nail effects crackle varnish and a plain white basecoat. I feel I should point out that it’s not usually a good idea to paint nails the day before packing and moving, they will chip.
A while ago, I bought this 70s crochet book, hoping it would inspire me to give it a go. Accompanied by miss whimsy, we gave it a try.
We gave it a go, with limited success, as the book instructions were more pretty than useful, so we ended up using youtube tutorials. Also the hooks we had were far too small for the wool, it turns out that mama mustard used them for making lace, which explains why we had such issues!
