Something new…..

So, as I was walking my daughter to class on the first day of school today, I couldn’t help but notice all of the newness surrounding me. New shoes, new backpacks, new clothes. It is such an exciting time, everything is new. It’s like Spring Time in the Fall. Every student and teacher has a chance to start over. I thought this is a perfect time for me to start something new. A place for my creativity to take flight, so to speak. A place for me to vent my creative frustrations and rejoice when I have done something truly inspiring. My passion is finding imagination in everyday life. I always thought of my crafting as an outlet and now I have a place to plug it in.

custom backpack

Sam’s new backpack!   Since I couldn’t find a backpack for my son that we liked, I made one from a cheap, plain backpack from Target,  embellished with appliques and hand embroidery for the smoke coming out of the rocket.  I don’t know how much longer I am going to be able to get away with hand made things for the kids, but I am hoping to push it for at least a few more years!
Thanks to my amazing,  awe- inspiring husband for making my first blog a dream come alive!  I had the inspiration and he had the technical know how to make it possible!
