Yellow Purse

I made this messenger bag/ purse last week! I absolutely adore it!
On the inside I put cute colorful umbrella fabric.
The body of the bag is double lined. I should have double lined the strap just to make sure it wouldn't strain it, but as with all first projects, I learned!
Handmade by me, with no pattern. And yes, I plan on making more =)

Watercolor fun

I went to my local barns and nobles and spent the day sipping coffee and watercoloring! Here are the pieces I worked on.
I really want to get better! =) I think my favorite one is the tree...

Roommate fun!

My roommates and I had an impromptu photo-shoot the other day! I love these girls =) They were silly, fun, and spontaneous! The two in the middle are my roommates, and the other two were just hanging out!
tea, anyone?

I really love photography!

I made this long ruffled skirt the other day for my sister, but she doesn't like my color scheme. I really like the floral fabric and the lace details!
I messed up the zipper, but I might try to redo it and sell it, what do you think?

In other news, I am job-searching and praying for God's direction in my life...a never ending process it seems! Please pray for me, dear fellow bloggers!

Photoshoot...with myself

Last evenings (or several evenings ago?) I decided to be wild and crazy and take some pictures of myself in a hippy dress. I was going for a very haunted look.
What do you think? I *lightly* color edited some and others I...deluged...with my amateur photoshopping skills. The only real photo-changing edit that I did was mask my hand in one shot, because you could see my camera remote (sigh).

Here are a few that I liked, but didn't think fit the theme.
Feedback always appreciated!

Weird Hair

So, I attempted to create a waterfall braid...and failed. But I did create this....only...I'm not sure what it is, or even if its something to be proud of...
Any feedback on this crazy hairstyle of mine would be much appreciated.

Rain, rain, go away

We have been blessed with a ton of rain these week, thus inspiring these pictures!
I love raindrops...
Here are two more raindrop pictures that I took back in 2007, with my little point and shoot...
I would love to do a raindrop photojournal study, how about you?
