I’m not Martha Steward…

but I’m getting there, inshallah 😉 and in the meantime please please please do not tell my children that I’m not good at it….

The thing is that dd11 was most impressed by my sewing skills this afternoon. Bless her …all I’ve done is sew a few straight lines using the machine and voila (well not that easy but fairly simple) I’ve made a little bag to keep all her sketching bits in.

I’m almost proud of myself to be honest…mashallah. You see for as long as I can remember I’ve been telling myself that I haven’t got  a creative bone in myself and as many psychodoctors and gurus will tell you…my thoughts have become actions. Hence my lack of creativity and almost hatred for anything arty farty. But that, my dear readers, is a thing of the past.

Now, in 2010 and at the ages of ** I’m reinventing myself and am slowly but surely turning into a young (dream on Ines) creative lady. And this lady does not give up. This lady has a go at things that would never have even thought about let alone try. This lady has taken on knitting, gardening, sewing, decorating, card making and even baking. YES, YES, YES, this lady is creative and willing to try new things, mashallah.

OK, I’m now going to shut up and show you my latest achievement. It’s ok, feel free to laugh and feel sorry for me but I don’t care as long as your comments are nice and something along these lines… WOW Ines mashallah, well done for a first try, keep it up sis… 😉

Oh yeah you want the picture now (forgot to mention photographying and blogging in my creative activities list) and here it is …

I know that the handles should go on the inside but it's the look we wanted to create...rough and rocky lol
she would not stop saying...'it's so cool mum, your very own first bag mum!!!' bless her
what does she know?
I told you I was only learning...lol

 And something else I did after because she had faith in me…

not too bad considering is not a straight line...


I wonder what I’m going to be inspired to do next…

Salaams y Hasta pronto,
