What Have I Done Lately?

Well...I've been finishing up bags, taking pics, cropping those pics and putting them up in my shops on Etsy and Artfire...finally! It seems like forever since I have felt like sewing any bags. I still have 6 or so cut and ready to sew. Maybe next Monday I'll be able to post saying I finished them.

Let's see...there was a mini duffle with a hand painted tree, a duo-fabric handbag, a couple wristlets, a ziplet, a zip pouch, 3 keyrings, a giant purse...I think that covers it :) Here's a peek at a few of them...







What's next?
  • I have polymer clay to play with for the first time. I am thinking buttons - for my bags. But I'd love to make some cute stuff too - food or critters.
  • Wire and beads for wire wrapped goodies...not jewelry though. I have a few ideas rumbling around in my head.
  • Shrinky Dinks...again, buttons probably. I did see a tutorial somewhere for bracelets. I may go try & find it again.
  • There are always more felt buddies to make. My son has been doing a few more too. The latest was a Wolverine as a toddler, crying because his balloon popped.
  • Cards. I want to give it a whirl..but they would just be for me, not to try and sell. I have seen what's out there and I know I couldn't even come close!

So - which should I do next? Any thoughts? What would you like to see me blunder...I mean wonderfully create in all it's beauty, flaws included :) ???

Love the red clutch! The wooden piece (is it wooden?) really makes it- the perfect accent. You sound like me...wanting to dabble in everything! I say go for it all and have loads of fun! You never know where it might take you.

So much creativity, so little time! I'd love to see what wire-n-bead creations you have rumbling ... but really, just do whatever inspires you in the moment!

Oh - and I love your bags.

Happy creating!
