Instax 5

Here is Instax number 5 in my 52 Photos in 52 Weeks project. I'm pretty happy with myself for keeping up with this. I mean how hard is it to take one picture a week really? Ha!
I do keep my camera sitting right on my dresser so I see it everyday. I think that helps me not forget and to keep it always on my mind.
I'm having a hard time with taking the actual pictures though. They always seem off center from what I see in the view finder. I wish I could practice more without going through film =/
Does anyone have any tips for getting the pictures to come out more center? Or to come out like how I see the subject in the view finder? I looked in the manual and it says I could be too close but I've made sure that I'm not! Grr!
Anyway...here is my fabric stash! Well this is actually only about 1/3 of my fabric, these are just some of my favs at the moment.

I've always though of myself primarily as a sewer. Whenever people ask what kind of crafts I do, the first thing out of my mouth is "I sew." Which is funny, considering I've barely sewn anything in the last year. Crocheting and embroidery have taken over!! I did sew my sister an apron for this Christmas but I didn't take pictures of it =(
I used to reconstruct band tshirts and make tank tops and a few dresses for myself. I even made a pair of really awesome pants. I have a TON of patterns too, I might now be inspired to get them out and actually make something!

I need to start doing this. I don't use mine nearly enough!

I just might then. I've been curious about them for ages, but they seemed kinda bulky. Oh well, you never know until you try, right? :D
(PS...that's some pretty cool lookin' fabric you have there.)
