Trying My Creativity Out

Okay, I am by far a creative person.  I love crafts but I almost always have to have a pattern or recipe or something.  I have the hardest time looking at something and seeing it put to another, maybe more practical use.  I browse other blogs all of the time and just drool over all of the creations that are out there.  There are some that are just amazing to see!!  The eye that some of these women have is AMAZING to say the least.

Back to me - I had this little white basket that came in a set of two and this one wasn't being used.  I desperately wanted to "create" something with it in the hopes that my creative juices would get flowing.  I decided that the only thing around my house that "migh" work would be a place for all of my nail polish, clippers, files, etc.  I wanted a cute thing to store it all in.

This is what I came up with.  I might have picked other colors but this was what I could come up with that matched with scraps around my house.  I have to say "I like it!"  I do want to put a liner in it though to finish it off but I wanted to show you now since I was excited about it.  Maybe in the next day or two I will go through my stash of fabric and come up with a liner.

What do you think?  It's still far from the AWESOME creations I see on line, but it's a start.

Looks great! I'm by far NOT creative in the least! My Mom on the other hand, is very creative-it almost makes me sick! HA! :)

Can't wait to see the liner!
