I was recently reunited with our 50mm lens and we have been inseparable. The reunion is not wholly a bed of roses though. Our DSLR is a low-level Nikon and does not automatically focus when you use a lens other than the kit one. Taking decent photos basically involves sweating (see previous post why), willing my hands not to shake, and begging for a miracle in the form of my eyesight going back to its 20/20 glory.
And here are some of the DIY-related things the lens and I have managed to shoot:
1. Chiffon flower for the living area coffee table. I wanted to make a bunch but the summer heat drained my crafting energy.
2. Miniature wreaths for my dollhouses.
3. Hang tags for my handmade merch. I ran out of the printed ones but I didn’t want to waste ink. What I did was sew embroidered tags onto felt, top thread white and black on the bobbin. They turned out great, if I do say so myself.
And not DIY-related, this owly birthday “greeting card” for Diana:
What’s your crafty plan for this week? Mine will center around summer totes. And if time permits, I will be back with a simple tutorial for the chiffon flower above.
