Afterwards

I finally uploaded the video from the lil one's birthday celebration. I'm the highly underpaid videographer (sp?) threatening the impatient party goers to give my baby a chance to think of his wish.



ANNNNND... I've started something with that skirt from my previous post.

I've turned a (wool?) skirt into a (wool?) purse!Yeah check out that pocket action. I decided to keep the pockets on the skirt as outside pockets on the purse. This makes for easy cell phone access. The original lining looked nice so that stays as well.

I still think it's missing something. I'm thinking some type of embellishment. I grabbed a book on how to sew flower embellishments from the library this past weekend. So hopefully something there will inspire me to make some additions. And I'm not totally sure I'm satisfied with the strap. I'm thinking that maybe some metal rings to connect the straps or something else. It's a work in progress.

I've been having these instances of deja vu quite frequently over the last week. I remember reading a year or so ago, that it is believed by some that deja vu is the Universe's way of letting us know we are doing exactly what we should be doing in that moment. I have had these visions in a while and I'm elated to be having them again.

God, I give thanks for the beautiful life I've been blessed with. Thank you for the positive manifestations in my life. Thank you for the positive energy that surrounds me and is in me. I pray that I can give it back to the universe in some way.

lmao @ you threatening to kick people up outta there.

love the video and how you encouraged him to do it on his own terms. it's his day, dammit!!

when i first saw the purse, i said to myself that it'd look even better with some type of flower...perhaps something shiny or beady-ish....so it was funny to read that you felt the same. but it looks fabulous. *yay* for turning stuff into other stuff.!

that theory about deja vu is interesting. i always have episodes and never know what to make of them .

fly tie, you hit the nail right on the head. It was HIS day dammit! Inside I was super bothered that they were rushing him. I mean we were there to celebrate my baby. Omgoodness he's 7 now! I almost tear up everytime I say that.

But he was uber happy so I was as well. That smile is what does it for me.

rawdawgbuffalo, thank you very much for visiting. It's not really a drive by since you took the time to leave a comment (and link your blog). I'll for sure check you out!
