misc. MISC. EIGHT It’s been ages since I’ve posted up some fun links for you. In fact, I had so many that I’ve split them into two posts, one for today and one for Monday. Perfect way to end and start the week. These are a few more images from my experiments with heart bokeh. They are very moody. I can’t wait to get my hands on the proper lens to do this right. filing this away for a future natural dyeing project. looks like spring! i’m a sucker for mac & cheese. speaking of mac & cheese, debbie was telling me about deep fried mac & cheese. crazy. very pretty capes & ponchos (wish i was a knitter) what a brilliant idea – neutralized, then overdyed rugs! adding ‘katazome‘ to my list of things to learn more about this year – so this is what i’m going to do with that bag of cranberries in the fridge! the blender marker is one of my favourite art supplies an apple a day calendar. cutest. what a pretty quilt! with tutorial for the blocks here incredible vintage cross stitch resource i REALLY like this top! paper cut project two favourite topics of mine – tights + dyeing this japanese craft book is officially on my wish list (+ a trip to tokyo!) total awesome-ness with string Pin Tweet Share February 5, 2010 By Karyn #heart bokeh 13 comments Previous Post 365 : 34 Next Post 365 : 35 13 Comments Reply michelle February 5, 2010 at 10:39 am the one of the apartments is my absolute fave! wowwww Reply sherrieg February 5, 2010 at 11:25 am Thanks for the links the other day about the heart bokeh – I’m smitten. And I love these pics you’ve shared, too! Oh, and I think the honey cranberry bread will be gobbled up at our house this weekend. 🙂 Thanks! Reply Michelle February 5, 2010 at 11:26 am Is that what bokeh is? Hilarious – I’ve been wanting to do a series of photos of what I see when I’m not wearing my glasses. Little did I know that it’s been done, and has a name! For the record, my “natural” bokeh is not hearts, more like flares. Also, where do you get blender pens – they sound awesome! Reply katie February 5, 2010 at 12:52 pm I did some katazome when I was in Japan a few years ago! The special paper that you use for the stencils has the most distinctive and (I think) wonderful smell! Unlike anything I have ever smelled before… I still have some and anytime I pull it out from storage the scent instantly triggers my memories of that trip! You should definitely look into it… such a cool technique! Reply joanna of simple blueprint February 5, 2010 at 2:13 pm Thank you for linking to me back to me! Your blog is new to me. very cute! look forward to checking it out more in detail. happy weekend! Reply Betsy February 5, 2010 at 2:17 pm Whoa! That string thing is cool. Gonna have to pass that one on! Reply JTS February 5, 2010 at 4:30 pm you are amazing. I love the photos. Is that the Crossways twin towers? Only you could make them look that good. Reply Sue Jean February 5, 2010 at 6:32 pm I’ve been missing your links! Thanks….its like the perfect guide to being unproductive at work…. Reply Eva February 6, 2010 at 9:29 am Thanks for the links. You’re getting better and better with the hearts! These photos are fantastic. Reply rebecca February 6, 2010 at 2:33 pm that cranberry bread looks super good, but i thought you might also enjoy this fun use for cranberries. i made these this past holiday season and think they’d be perfect for valentine’s day too. just used floral wire and strung the berries then twisted the wire into shape. the one inside a friend’s house is drying nicely, but the one’s outside got lots of spaces between as they aged… or maybe the birds were enjoying them! i hope you like them! Reply Alison February 6, 2010 at 6:04 pm These make my heart sing! Reply chelsea February 8, 2010 at 12:13 am Thanks for the link. Have a great weekend! Reply 365 : AUGUST at make something October 28, 2010 at 12:13 am […] August seems so far away, now that November is next week! I’m really going to try to make the next few months of photos really great. I feel like I haven’t been trying as hard recently. Here’s a short list of things to take photos of and techniques to try before the end of the year – laundromat photo, photo of a someone i don’t know, freelensing, animal photo (not a dog), action shot & more shaped bokeh.
