Do you remember Samantha from that silly 60's comedy show, Bewitched? A twitch of her nose would instantaneously make things happen for her. Well, I could sure use her powers at the moment.
I've been daydreaming for many months about new handbag designs. Ideas have been scribbled onto sheets of paper just waiting for their execution.
As anyone who is a "maker of things" can attest to, drawing something out and then actually making them are two different things. It can take quite a bit of time from the beginning of a design to it's completion. Measurements can sometimes be off. More times than not, it will often need a nip and a tuck somewhere. Sometimes it is scrapped altogether because things just don't turn out the way you had envisioned them. And sometimes they turn out just darn right hideous.
I don't know if you are familiar with the word, boneyard. It is an expression often used for a place where a large grouping of old and unused items sit, just one step away from making it to the junkyard. Well, after years and years of creating, I have accumulated quite a boneyard of my own. Many items labeled with the title, "What Was I Thinking?" sit in large plastic bags waiting to be recycled into something usable.
This brings me to the reason behind this post. I've had this idea in mind for quite a while and last night I finally decided to give it a go. It looked wonderful on paper, but now that I have transferred it to fabric, I'm not so sure. This is looking more and more like yet another item which will find it's way to the boneyard.
I've decided to set this aside for a bit while I ponder it's outcome. Maybe I can turn it into something else.
Where is Samantha when you need her?!?!
Have a nice day, everyone.
