Did someone mention new CAMERA?!

Yes! I did. Well, Urban Outfiters did but then I was like, “Woah!” and somehow spent 60 bucks.


Uh- ya. So I don’t really know how it works since it is film and none of it has been developed yet, but when I do, I will most defiantly post some ‘scans’ of my photographs. I don’t know how swimmingly well they will come out. For all I know, the photos are the type of blurry where it gives people four eyes and two noses. That would be awesome though. :)

Oh and I’m really into painting cameras lately! I found a print that used as an outline/inspiration from etsy. Your welcome to copy this camera shape/patter/etc! This painting is made with acrylics and is a few months old.

Also, this is my sewing table from two weeks ago :) I was working on a patchwork quilt skirt for someone and I’ll post photos soon.

Also, this is a photo of my pom pom balls that I made (new ones!) and they are rainbow colored. It’s hanging above my sewing machine. 

And that is rest of my update! :) Like Hannah Handmade on Facebook? Please and thank you!

The French Pedicure Tutorial

Ok Ladies. I hate having untrimmed and unkept toes that just look drab and so I picked up the ‘scotch-tape french manicure method,’ which is super amazing, and requires little talent! So here it is!



Put tape over the tip of your toe... this may take a few tries!

Paint over the tape then carefully take the tape off. Be careful to keep the tape away from cotton balls and don’t lay the tap roll on the carpet. The last thing you want it fuzz getting in your way when you paint.


Dip the paint brush in the remover and use this to clean up the bottom. This may take MANY tries! This is a long process, but the outcome it worth it.

Then just go over with clear!
And vowala! Your french pedicure is DONE! Good luck, and if you need help, you can email me.


*Remember this takes a LONG time to get the perfect line. For me, some times it take 20- 50 minuts, depending on how much of a rush I am in. Keep working on it and you’ll get faster and better!

Thoughts

let me be on top of a roof, me and my little dress and my ship shaped shoes so i can look upon the  city and think and be light hearted
flowing freely is the best feeling, especially when you know nothing’s in your way
├╝ber bliss and content on sunday is what holds me together thought the week
“don’t pop by bubble, just let me be.”
wouldn’t you like to be able to feel as light? 
weightless, and to have the ability to fly?
it’s that moments where happiness can’t be contained that i cherish the most
glitter + bling bling= something magical
isn’t this so true?
my thoughts will be improved so that everything i look at, can be a diamond in my eyes, not a stone.
my thoughts are composed of the pictures i find that inspire me. 
people can inspire one another so easily. why is it so hard to put in a good effort though? into everything we do even?
....ok.... i can.... and i will.... can you?
It’s kinda fun to share my thoughts on life. I guess I think my blog is supposed to be a people pleaser. Then I thought, why blog then? “Because I want to be known.” But when you grow old, it wont matter. When I die, being known can’t help me. 

Have a wonderful weekend out there, to those who have stumbled across my crafting diary :)
