Funky Pink Bag
I loved making this bag! Just loved it. Loved the colors, loved the textures, loved the funkiness. I'm going to be 50 in two weeks. I love alternative music. My favorite bands at the moment are Cage the Elephant and Franz Ferdinand. I love to sing in my car and sometimes even dance(don't ask it's possible). I love to read spiritual books and I think I'm a little off kilter especially for your average frumpy housewife. I think it's time I admit that I'm not your average housewife and embrace the eccentricities that make me happy. No I'm not going through your average midlife crisis, I've always been a little off kilter and eccentric and I've always loved making funky pieces of art and funky bags. One of my best friends is a cancer survivor, she told me she tries to make as much out of one day as possible as life is too short. I think it was the one sentence I needed to hear from someone who believed it. So here I've outed myself. I've shared a bag that would probably have sat in my closet waiting for the right opportunity to share it. Well that moment is now. No more closet bags or closet behavior. Life is too short so I'm going to enjoy the ride even if it means looking a little off kilter for a frumpy housewife. Funky hot pink mohair moves me so you'll probably see a bit more of it in my future works. I hope you like the bag!
