It is sensible to be sensible!
Yet, sense is something that rarely goes into anything I do in life!
Or, even planning!
Therefore, when I decided to recycle (or, up-cycle?) my son’s old, discarded jeans, I just cut it and stitched a bag out of it.
Not having used a sewing machine in quite a long, long time was not a big factor in my favor too!
I struggled with it…the frustration of threads breaking, empty bobbins and the thick denim cloth resisting my needle…. but, hey, at the end of the day, I realized that I enjoyed it so much! And, I painted a blue bird on one and a girl's face on another!
Here, please have a look!
I stuck glass rocks on, used glitters, pearly paint, pens, acrylics…unplanned and, totally having fun!

Okay, I did try something else too!
Zentangle…I mean, at least my version of it!
I did it almost like free writing and I realized it turned out like the mazy, thick jungle that my head often becomes when I try to think too much, the good thing being that there are pathways out!
There are pathways out of messes always, I told myself!
And, it led me to put things once again in proper perspective, so, I thought, in life, the clue to keep floating is, ‘LET GO’!
My journal just turned a bright, sunshine yellow with orangey flowers!
How do you like it?
