around the world blog hopMonday, September 29, 2014
So, today's post is a bit different from the usual sort! I got tagged by the lovely Jane from Deluminators to do this tag about creating stuff. She’s a fellow Sydneysider that blogs gorgeous photos from her food adventures, daily life and travels around the world. Her blog also happens to be one of my favourites, so definitely check it out! Anyway, even though I don't write DIY posts very often, I thought it’d be fun to answer these questions about my creating process (or lack thereof). Read on if you're curious...
1. What are you working on?
Currently I’m writing a lot of articles for uni and my internship, which I’m sure no one wants to hear about! I actually want to get better at sewing, so besides another pencil case I may try my hand at making my own kimono cardigan. If it doesn’t turn out to be a disaster, I may even write a blog post about the finished product...
2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I know literally everyone says this, but when I make things I always tend to add my own little twist to it. I absolutely love whimsical stuff, bright colours and quirky designs, so whenever I DIY something I guess it has a little of my personality embedded in it. I also try a lot of different things, so that makes my crafting 'style' hard to define. One week I could be baking a cake, the next I could be painting, making gifs or scrapbooking... It all depends on my mood, really!
If I'm being 100% honest? Most of the time I make stuff I want to buy but can't! I'm quite picky, so a lot of the time it's just easier to make things myself to avoid disappointment (just take my pencil case as an example). Of course, there's also more to it than that. I love the process of creative things, and it's a nice release when I'm overthinking things in my life. Plus, there's nothing more gratifying than proudly using something you've created with your bare hands.
So now, I hereby tag the following people. Happy blogging!
