Well, life has been crazy for me of late. It started with my long anticipated holiday to the South Pacific and has been a whirlwind ever since. I have quite a bit to share, so expect a few blog posts this week.

My holiday was awesome. Seven days cruising the South Pacific, to celebrate my friend’s 30th birthday. We enjoyed cocktails, food, beautiful beaches, martinis, cocktails, food, culture, cocktails, met some fun ppl and in case you were wondering, drank a lot of cocktails! The food was spectacular and honestly I would cruise again just for that!

Here is just a taste of what I saw, on one of the most memorable days, a tour to the secluded Lucelia Beach:

Paradise was very hard to leave!

Since returning (and gosh did that take some adjustment) I have been trying to balance real life with my dream life. Real life has been winning 😦 but dream life is doing its best to keep up. At the moment my digital art seems to have taken a bit of  back seat to my obsession with sewing. Sorry to those people that love it.  I have been getting creative with my clutch bags and even set up an online shop to sell them. Here are a couple of my latest designs:

This white flower clutch is so gorgeous! I had a vision of creating a beautiful white clutch with handmade flowers. Perfect as a wedding clutch or even just to dress up your jeans. I found this great tutorial by Mrs Priss that helped me to make the flowers. First attempt almost resulted in me burning the house down, so I’d advise having a bowl of water nearby if you try it out!

This is my ruffled, pleated clutch. I love this gorgeous script fabric! Actually it’s inspired me to make more things with beautiful old script. Stay tuned for that.

Finally, I have been busy setting up an online shop to sell my bags. Please stop by and check out all my other bags too. Pass the link on to your bag-loving friends – http://www.myoriginalsin.net and I’d love if you became a Facebook fan [click the link].

I hope you are all fabulous, happy and healthy.
