If a picture paints a thousand words

This blog is a place for me to work on my photography. My goal is to submit a new picture every day and to get better as the moments go by. I take all pictures with my digital camera. I worked for years with a 35 mm minolta, and this is a learning experience for me. I am afraid that I got lazy and allowed the camera to choose most of the settings for me. This is my journey of learning how to shoot a camera that is not in a program mode. It is harder than I ever imagined. That makes this challenge both a new experience and a joy for me.

A New Book Bag - Day 134

I am not crafty, but I also can't stand to throw perfectly good things away.  This is our compromise.  It is made out of a pair of old blue jeans.  I made three, and all the girls love them.  It is nice to recycle and reuse.

The purple belt was her idea, and of course, we all love the hearts on the pockets!

It is actually really sturdy and she carries her school book in it to the bus everyday.  

Oh mom......really????


  1. What a cute look on her face...The bag is awesome and I'm so impressed! Talent and creativity impress me :)

  2. that is great! I remember my mum making me something similar with cut off jeans.

  3. And you say you are not crafty? Very nice bag .. and it comes with convenient pockets too.

  4. What a cute bag, as is its owner! :)
