What a trying experience blogging is when you have been away for months and Blogger changes it's routine.
I am a terrible creature of habit..and routine..Fly by the seat of my pants is not my middle name ..Blogger is different..Picnik went away.
Nothing stays the same.
I enjoy learning new things..when the time is right..
I must discipline myself and get this.
Since I retired.. (to coin a phrase.. it really wasn't "retirement")as in age or benefits.. younger than the age and no benefits..~
..I have needed projects..to be still..
I enjoy making these once in a while and decided on a beach bag..It's not waterproof.. not washable w/ the trinkets I added.. fabric,flowers,shark's teeth from my favorite beach(meaning familiar and beautiful and populated by 2 handfuls..+ of wonderful people)..a pocket for my beach friendly read in the sun's glare while protected from the sun..Kindle:)..a crown and birds from a lovely envelope I received housing a very pretty card..a fabric covered button..
shells from said beach.. French monogrammed initials:)
The Graphic's Fairy Ephemera as the heart~I still cannot add a link..my apologies~
These bags are fun to make..this is my 4th I think..
I know I will enjoy having it by my side at the beach..sand and all~
The initials were found on Etsy..more than one yr ago,I still have a few..I like them so much..They remind me of Brocantes in France~I felt lucky when I found them~
If the mood strikes..play w/ purses and add things..like making a collage almost..PS Where have all the fabric stores gone?
Treading softly..entering Spring and Golf Season for Jacques..More time on my hands~
