it's a wrap: studio saturday


I was wondering how hard it would be, after recent events and the inevitable after effects, to get back into the mode of creating new things. I felt sure that my head would be in such a fog that I couldn't work. But I knew that if I didn't force myself to move soon, things could only get worse. So I did and after a couple of days of piddling around something clicked.

The bags shown below were made this week and will be added to the shop (finally!) Friday night. I will add links as I add items.

The last of my recycled graphite cashmere. I'm in love with this bag.
Notice the leather strap and inside lining?

Okay, that's my week. Care to add yours?
Comment and give me a link to your weekly wrap-up.

  5. Thanks girls! It's always surprising when Friday rolls around - especially when I spent most of Monday and Tuesday standing in one spot looking around. :)

  7. Every one is more beautiful than the previous. I am so in love with the red one, but I think my dear H would kill me if I bought another handbag.

  12. Wow, they are gorgeous. I bet it felt good to harness your creativity again. Your work is so beautiful. I have a quilt wrap-up since that is what I have been mostly creating this January. http://maidenjane.blogspot.com/2011/01/t-shirt-quilts-2011.html

  13. Beautiful creations Lori...I think it speaks volumes of you and your character to keep moving forward. I imagine creating is quite comforting to you.
    I love the first picture. The DOF is perfect. I think more pics like that would be great for your shop....
    Keep on pushing on...

  14. Thank you Andrea. You're absolutely right - creating art in ANY FORM is so incredibly therapeutic. Put me in a chair with stuff in front of me and this girl is a happy little camper. :)
