I think it's been pretty fairly established on my blog that I'm more of a photo person than a crafty person, despite reeeeeally wanting to be a crafty person. There's also a foodie element in there too. I know I don't need to have a specific 'type', but at the moment I feel like I'm torn between the three without really accomplishing any of them. When I look at amazing bloggers like SouleMama and Angry Chicken it just reminds me that there are bloggers out there who do all three, and kick arse at it, and can write really well as well! If only we could all be that talented.
So I've been looking at buying a sewing machine as you all know and I've been given some fantastic suggestions and feedback about sewing machines through comments which have been so helpful. I know I can buy a reasonably cheap(ish) sewing machine which would be more than enough for me to kick my craftiness into gear and hopefully start actually making some stuff! Including a quilt which I really need to have done in 8 months...
On the other hand, I've always loved photography and I'm always the first one to whip out a camera at every event and even just randomly while walking around town. I love the camera I have at the moment which is a Canon Ixus 60 but I think I've just about reached the limit of its capabilities and now I'm craving something a bit more... professional, I guess is the word. So now I've started researching DSLR's and especially Nikon's because I've only ever heard good things about them. This is the one I'm looking at the moment, it's amazing, and seems pretty easy to use for a beginner. It's quite exxy, but then again that's the price you pay for a really good camera unfortunately.
So what do you think? Should I do it? I'm obviously going to put a lot of thought into it considering I don't have a huge amount of money since going to Europe, although I can afford to buy this now if I really desperately wanted it. Are there any super-good photographers out there who can guide me?
*EDIT* Seems the link to the Nikon I was talking about isn't working, this is it instead, click on 'D60 Microsite' so see all the super cool stuff it can do!
