Im very proud of myself , I completed this project to send out for submission!

I did it! I am very proud of myself . As some of you might know who have been keeping up with me , I have been working on this for a couple of months now , to submit to a magazine , I have to be honest , I was so overwhelmed , I thought my ideas weren't good enough , everything was just an experiment , I was just going with the flow , but thats what creating is about right ? You don't know what its gonna be until its done . This is my Monster Messenger Alice in Wonderland bag ! I made this out of an old pair of levi's I had , well Dave was upset , they were his pair of jeans,but he wasn't wearing them in forever , so of course when he saw me cutting them up he said , " What are you doing! " , I said , " You haven't worn these in months ! ", so I should say thanks Dave LOL! So lets see what happens . I was so excited when I was sending it on its way at the post office , I was a mess , I looked terrible , my hair a mess , no sleep from finishing the final touches as you can see I really looked bad , but it didn't really matter because I felt accomplished and to me that was all that mattered , I will let you know if it gets published . I was glad to complete a challenge such as this , it made me realize that , it is possible to make stuff , and I can't wait to open my etsy shop that I continuously speak about but is taking so long for me to put up . I think this project convinced me I have nothing to fear.

Thanks for listening as always ! : )
