I have exciting news!! My Bee and Saguaro Flower bead art piece has been accepted into the Bead and Button Bead Dreams Competition!! I am so,o,oooooo excited!! I shipped it off the other day, $102 for round trip shipping and insurance! And that was only insuring for half it's value! YIKES!
I also bought a new Digital SLR Canon 450D. I made a camera bag for it. It's a little on the large size but, I think I will evetually fill it up! I used a Polyfill product that is 1" thick and very stiff inside the bottom and sides. The lid has a pocket for paper, magazine or a map and pencils etc. I see now that I need a flap on the pocket. I spent about $20 instead of $70+ for a store bought one. It has it's flaws but it will do the job and look pretty, too!
