I finally added new items to the shop! That seemed to take FOREVER from when I started these little bags. I wasn't able to add as many as I wanted to (still waiting on some supplies to finish off some more of the bags), but some is better than none.
I get a little antsy sometimes because I have so many ideas in my head and only the one pair of hands to accomplish them with. So the going is slow and that can get frustrating. Does anyone else feel like that? I got a good jolt this weekend because I went to the Indie Craft Bazaar in Ft. Lauderdale. It was a small venue but PACKED with loads of vendors with so many unique and fun projects - how could I not be inspired? It took a good deal of research just to find that fair (and one other coming up in May) and it just felt like a little piece of home 'cause it's been hard settling into Miami. In LA I know where everything is and have an outlet for every venture I want - not so much in Miami. Lots of art fairs, apparently, but not a lot of an indie scene. At least, not that I can find readily. Oh well, I suppose it's like that no matter where you are if where you are is new.
Currently on the tube as I craft: Charlie's Angels, Season 2. (I LOVE Charlie's Angels. As a kid I wanted to be Sally Field's Gidget as a teen and Jaclyn Smith's Kelly Garrett as an adult.)

So I finished the first mini all-purpose bag (which I've already put to use to see how it holds up) and overall I'm quite pleased with it. A few tweaks need to be made (seaming of the bag, proper measurement for the lining inside would be good) but, hey, it's all a learning process, right?
This off-the-hip photo doesn't really do it justice (what with the flash and dark tabletop and all) but the bags I already have in progress should photograph much better once I get the "studio" set up again for the official photoshoots. I know it's a simple design, but I like that about it. I've always preferred subtle cuteness in my items and, anyway, the patterned lining and contrasting zipper will give the bag just enough punch. Hopefully.
Anyway, off to make pasta now!
Currently on the tube while crafting: Hancock (love the first half of this movie, over it when the second half kicks in.)

I love to use bright colors and the little zip-up bags I'm crafting are perfect for that. Even if you're the kind of person who finds wearing bright colors a bit too ostentatious, you can always hide a little brightness in your purse. Also, I'm trying to make them the perfect size to be able to use as a make-up bag, pencil case, or anything else we have to try keep organized in our oversized bags. I'll post the final results as soon as I'm happy with them and keep an eye out for them at http://www.etsy.com/shop/SheIsCraftingMyDoom!

I will be posting items currently for sale at my Etsy shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/SheIsCraftingMyDoom), new projects I'm working on for the site, and tidbits from the day that help keep me entertained while I craft away.
