Learning and Doing

Well, as usual I've been hard headed and remiss in keeping up with all that I should have.  I have been busy.  I have taken the photos that I was asked to take.  I have been to my grand-daughter's pre-k graduation (that was fun!), I have been working on my bag orders and I've been keeping up with the house (for the most part).  
Bags you ask???  Yep, I made myself a tote bag a few years ago and used it for a bit and laid it to the side.  The other day I found some material and had an idea for a purse.  So I modified the tote pattern and the purse turned out well.  My mom liked it so much she asked that I make her one, but orient it to the Jax Jaguars.  So I'm working on that.  Then through my best friend Brenda and a mutual friend, I have the possible opportunity to put some of my work into a local store.  This is am extremely excited about!  I had to create a portfolio for the store owner to look at which went through Brenda and our friend.  I put the portfolio in my original tote so that I could pass it to Brenda conveniently.  Brenda loved the tote and wants one of her own.  So that's the story of the bags!
The pictures were of Bean with the balloon barrettes in her hair, which I have taken and loaded on the Etsy sight.  I think it will help people realize the size of the barrette.  
So now you know what I've been up to.  Don't forget to check out my Etsy from time to time to see what I've created!  :o)
