Ugh. Why haven’t I followed my dreams? I actually have a better question; do I still have the same dreams? And do I want to follow them?
Yes, I want to follow dreams. I want to create things. I am still modifying my design for my new purse. I’ve pretty much got it set, I just need to make it. Sort of a modified backpack is what it will be, big enough to carry my chromebook, and the straps will be set so they can either go over one shoulder or be worn as a backpack and will draw the top of the purse closed so no one can pilfer it. I’m thinking flower appliques made from various brown fabrics so they are discreet yet visible. I don't want dorky. And some bead work. You’ll never guess where I got the beads. This is very exciting. I wear flip flops in the summer, and I love the ones that are beaded on the straps. When the sandals get too funky to wear any more, I strip the beads off. Isn’t that great! And they have some really nice beads on those sandals. Each pair of sandals is in a different baggy.
Do you know what I do on weekends? I do nothing on the weekends except some laundry, a small bit of vacuuming and some dishes. Last weekend I had plans but it snowed, so the plans were cancelled. By me, of course, because I was going by myself. As I always do.
This is my problem: I need validation and adulation. I need someone to tell me that I am wonderful. So this is where you guys come in. I am going to make my purse and post pictures of it so you can tell me how wonderful it is. It’s unseemly to brag in person, so I will do it in VirtualLand. Hm hm hm.
Here are the raw materials for the purse. The brown on the lower right is the main fabric. I have three choices for the lining, two flamboyant and one sedate. I have burlap and fake fur. This is going to be an awesome bag...
