A first for everything

Who says you can't do it? It's mind over matter. There's always a first for everything. And for me today, it would be about making my own video. My first video. Honestly, I've never done it before. Have no idea how to go about it as well. But I guess there was a divine intervention???? Hahahahahaha! I don't know. Coz I just can't figure out how I managed to somehow handle the digital camera on my own and pushed the right buttons on it to get what I was aiming for.

You see.....the thing is, I already went to see the experts at the camera shop to ask them how can I do a video using my digital camera. After checking it, they said that my camera can't take any videos because it doesn't have a memory card.  Even though I did wanted to buy the memory card there and then, but I couldn't! Why? Because it no longer exist!! Yup!! You heard me....it is no longer in production. LOL! That just goes to show how old my camera is....hahahaha! I was so frustrated about it and was trying to figure out how else can I take a video. You see, I wanted so badly to do craft tutorials on my blog. And being able to do a video of about it would be bliss. But because of this tiny issue, I couldn't. I simply couldn't accept this!

And so after much playing with the camera, I finally found the way to make a video. I kept wondering why didn't those guys at the camera shop tell me about it. If I had not given it a try, I would have never known that it can still take videos, even without the memory card. But it can only record for 1 minute and 30 seconds haha! I just didn't care! All I care about is how do I capture something within that amount of time. How to get the message across in such a short time. After much experiment and recording about 10 videos.....recording and deleting one after another, I finally get to record one that I was satisfied with. 

I then did something else too......another "first" for me. Uploading the video on Youtube! Yup! I've never done it before and didn't have the slightest clue on how to do it. I just followed my heart and of course had to crack my brain as well. The whole video thingy was pretty challenging but it was an awesome feeling when I managed to get it done. I really surprised myself today. 

Here's the video I made. A very very simple video. No voice, no wordings. Nothing but my hands showing how to make a flower. Straight to the point. Got the information across . Hopefully the video answered a lot of inquiries from my readers at my card blog. They have been asking me to show them how to make that flower for a long time already. At least I made a lot of people happy today. ;)
