Hi everyone, I am glad to say that things are starting to fall into place chez Dibs, and I have not murdered Noah yet, so that is a good sign that all those sleepless nights have not driven me mad….for now.
Remember when I mentioned here that I was trying to psyche Mr.Dibs into getting me a DSLR camera after the baby came? Well I succeeded, and I am now the proud owner of a Nikon 3100D. I was torn between a Canon and a Nikon, but I settled for the Nikon because it offered video shooting features, while the Canon did not….well not for the money I was willing to pay. I am so excited about the camera, and I have been playing around with it in my spare moments.
Which led me to the reason for this post. Its no secret that I enjoy meeting fellow sewing bloggers, and I feel meeting them in person, and hearing their voice, or laughter, makes reading their blog posts more fun….am I crazy? Probably…anyways, I thought it would be nice to do a series of posts where I interview fellow bloggers I meet, so that you can also get to know them through my Nikon lens. I don’t know how this will pan out, but I hope I can meet as many bloggers as possible, and interview them. Its nothing serious, just a fun 2-3 minutes interview. Is anyone game? I know having a video of yourself on the internet is not everyone’s cuppa tea, so if I approach you with a determined look in my eyes, do feel free to tell me where to put my camera if you are not interested.
For anyone wondering, no, I am not a journalist, but my undergraduate degree was in Journalism and Mass Communications, and so I do tend to delude myself that I could be the next big thing…I’m sure Oprah started somewhere at the bottom too…..NO….she did not?…..really?
First off, I went to visit Pincushion Treats yesterday. When I was pregnant, she visited me on several occasions, bringing me guilt inducing edibles like chocolate macaroons (promptly devoured by all in the Dibs household, with both senior and junior messrs.Dibs clamouring for more…sorry guys, I don’t know how to make them), the softest chocolate chip cookies ever ( I seriously prayed to God that Mr.Dibs would not want some, and surely, it was a blessing that she brought them on one of the nights that junior.mr.Dibs was with his mom….someone say Amen please.)
I went with Junior Mr.Dibs II ( you have to start them young on career paths I tell you), and I can assure you that he has, as of yesterday, started his media career. A couple more years, and I can retire to a life of luxury, while he slaves away to keep me in all the luxury I am MOST confident I can become used to. I dare anyone to say its child labour.
This is my first time editing a video, so do feel free to laugh at my mediocre attempt.
In sewing related matters, I am currently buying fabric and patterns, and wondering when I will ever sew anything. It may be a while before I finish any thing, but I shall continue trying, one machine stitch per week. Who knows, maybe I might actually sew a renfrew just in time for Winter.
Have a good weekend everyone.
