DIY Crafts and Projects
Since the start of "Hopeful Honey" I've received lots of emails full of questions about not only my blog, but also myself.
So I thought it would be helpful to collectively gather some popular questions I have been asked over the past year and answer them to the best of my abilities.

Q: What camera do you use to take your photos?
I used a Nikon Coolpix L120 in my older blog posts & the Canon EOS 600D in my newer posts.

Q: What program do you use to edit your photos?
Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5

Q: What camera do you use to film your youtube videos?
Canon EOS 600D and I currently use iMovie to edit.

Q: What made you start this blog?
I've always been slightly obsessed with all things creative, and thankfully I was blessed with a wonderful mum who encouraged me in all my crazy (and messy) endeavours.
There was nothing in particular that really made me start this blog. I just wanted a way to share my ideas and inspiration with the world.

Q: Why did you name your blog "Hopeful Honey"?
In THIS blog post I explain all about why I gave my blog the name 'Hopeful Honey'.

Q: Where did you learn to photograph for your blog? 
Oh dear, where do I start on this one? See the reason I'm I'm lost for words is due to the fact that my early photos looked absolutely terrible! Dim lighting, bluriness etc. were all big parts of them. Some of them were so bad that I was very tempted to re-take them however I left them online as I wanted other newbie bloggers to realise that everyone needs to start somewhere, and no blog will ever be perfect!
I still think I don't take such amazing photos, but I'm learning and that's what's most important!
But let me share one great tip I've learned so far... Pinterest has hundreds of photography tutorials!

Q: What are your "Terms Of Use"?
All of the "Hopeful Honey" images, patterns and tutorials are copyrighted. If you would like to feature any of my work you may use only one image, and will need to link back to my original blogpost. You may not edit, crop, or change my images in any way without written permission.
Thank you in advance!

Q: Am I allowed to sell items made from your patterns/tutorial?
Yes, of course you're allowed to sell items made from my patterns and tutorials!
If you're selling the items online (Etsy, Ebay etc.), please give either my blog or myself credit in the items description.
