hi there,
 If you read my post's notice the 'like to see more?' button below the post, I often add more pictures after the jump break. you can click the images to have a larger view. thanks for stopping by , have a nice day.
about me,
my name is Gemma, a 17 year old girl from The Nehterlands. I love crafting, drawing, photography and nature. my blog is about the tings I make and the tings I'm interested in.
I really like photography, I even got 3 cameras. (only one digital) including a Polaroid(!).

My blog is called Submarines and Sewingmachines because when I made it I thought I was going to post mostly about sewing. I learned sewing 5 years ago and I did made some stuff but I don't really like it because it's so frustrating. And the submarines part, Yellow submarine,  the Beatles, ..anyone?

let me tell something more about me
since two years I've got a boyfriend Tim. I love summer. I also got some super powers (some call it dyslexia) so I make sometimes spelling mistakes. I'm joining a waldorf school, which means that we have more art lessons than other schools, which I like. My mother did a academy of arts and my father studied maths. I am pretty small 1,60 meters (which is tiny in Holland). eh..
