canvas wallets

I did find a couple of photos of the earliest wallets, although the later ones had more pockets and detail. (see next post).

canvas wallets and bags

Also, over the summer, I made a new line of canvas wallets and small bags with applique elements, similar to the images I used for the charms. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending how you think of it, I sold most of them before I could photograph them. I hate it when that happens, although the sales are nice. I must get a new camera, and learn how to use it better. Anyway, here are a few I scanned the fronts of. Inside, there are little pockets and surprises, with little notebooks I also made.

what I did on my summer vacation

I know I have been a real slug about posting. My camera has been acting up, so I haven't been able to photograph what I have been making. Anyway, I was able to scan some things, so here they are. It has been a busy summer, trying to figure out how to proceed with my various business endeavors, and enjoy making new things. These are small paintings with collage elements. When the camera is working, I will post photos of two new sweaters I made over the summer, mostly while sitting at the pool.
