My Creative Space

Something very strange seems to have happened to my camera, creating this other-wordly glow in some of my photos.  I've resisted replacing this camera, having finally warmed to it, but it's getting a bit crotchety in its old age: I have to recharge the battery every other day, sometimes it decides to randomly turn itself off, and now this.  I feel overwhelmed by the plenitude of choices for a replacement.  I need something decent, but simple and economical.  Any suggestions?

Anyway, I've begun working on these super-sturdy eco-totes, made from a wonderfully thick 100% cotton canvas, and perfect for carrying a load of library books or for vegetables, flowers and a baguette from the farmer's market.

Both sides of the bags are printed with slightly different prints.  I'm excited to list these, but think I may need to sort out what's going on with my camera first.  Or else include a disclaimer: "Contrary to appearance, bag does not actually glow."


Happy to be joining in with Kirsty from Kootoyoo this week!  Find many more creatives and their spaces here.

Loving the totes Jen, Particularly the 'grasses' design - I can think of a myriad of uses!

Thanks Mel. I'm excited about them -- I love totes and always try to stash a few in the car, the stroller etc. Seems like I always have my hands full, and having the extra space is really helpful. Finally figured out what was going on with my camera and why it was creating the halo (um, little tiny fingerprints on the lens...wonder how those got there?) SO seems I don't have to choose a replacement just yet.

Cheers for the comment! ~ Jen
