My creative space

A bit late, but I have managed to find a spot for creativity this week...
I have a pot full of shells and whenever I go to the beach I collect loads of them, and because my "nature pot" it's already full( of shells, sea glass, wood and feathers).. it's time to use them for something!

And then I have to finish this acrylic on canvas painting (I painted the same with watercolors on paper)..
More then 100 other "Creative spaces" at Kootoyoo's blog!

Swimming pool bag

My daughter started to go to swimming pool classes and I needed a bag she could carry . I couldn't find a proper size in the shop: too big, too small, too edgy, too difficult to open, etc

So at home I found a cotton bag, (one of those that now replace the plastic bags in supermarket), cut the bottom and made two strips , so she could hung it on her shoulders..
I cutted an old plastic apron and I sewed it in the inside, so if she put something wet inside it won't drip.
At last I attached a owl and flower I made long time ago, so I could cover the printed name on the front.
And voilá!The bag is ready! It's very light and she could carry it around easily!
(Although it still look huge! I think I will make it smaller! You see... I couldn't do that with a bought one!.. )
