I've not been doing lots of crafting, as I made a load of things on holiday, of that, more later.
What I have been making is stop motion animation videos, inspired by a complicated train of thought which led me to the Photojojo stop motion tutorial.
My first video was this little one with the conkers and pebbles from my nice little shelf:

I like this one, I think I got the light right, but I learned that I need to make sure that the camera is tight on to the tripod.
This is my second video - I need to make a found object colour wheel for my art course, and I decided it'd be a good idea to animate it!

I like it, but the lighting in it is inconsistent, and I need much brighter lights, both for future videos, and for general crafting - both my craft lights are not working, so I've borrowed my bedside lamp.
Spot the point where I got the colour wheel a bit wrong!
Then, when I was editing holiday pics this morning, I discovered that I had enough pics of me jumping waves on Criccieth beach to make a tiny vid :)

Hoorah for lots of pictures!
