Sometimes not every piece turns out the way I imagined. I believe it was a quote from Sophia Amoruso that said, “don’t compare your life to someone else’s highlight reel”. Although we often only see the perfect product or the perfect finish, that’s not always the way. Here is “one” of my examples, this beautiful aqua leather tote has taken several journeys in the past year. Initially, i thought of soft tones to compliment the aqua. Then, I decided black abstract art was the way to go…and then finally (maybe) I landed on removing the matching leather straps and covering the endless image changes with my silk printed art. I love the outcome, but it should be said that not every piece is perfect start to finish!
