Nail Polish Embellished Jeans Wallet

hi, every one,
i hope that you are pretty okay.
i am great today,
woke up with some great mood,(i like)
just heard this jam on the radio...
this jam just lifts up my spirit
no looking back -Damita

anyway enough about my good mood
on to my crafting
i have not done this in a while
i have to confess that i had a pretty worn out wallet that is before saturday
 and i thot i could make one.
so i googled "how to make a fabric wallet" and i got one that seemed easy to make
but i had to use loads of starch for it to stay stiff
you can find the pattern here
i used
  • left over jeans fabric
  • thread n needle
  • starch
  • ironbox
  • butterfly to decorate (optional)
  • nail polish to decorate (optional)
 so this is what i came up with

i added some more nail polish

the nail polish i used

have a lovely furahi day
an awesome weekend everyone

in the mind of a working kenyan

yaani am like super late on making these blog updates,
so mid this week
so who doesnt know that obama  is Kenyan 'lol' okay he is not kenyan but his roots
can be traced back to the mind of a kenyan he is sooooo kenyan.
the craze in kenya was so enormous
Kenyans were way more excited than they way they normally get when one of our political leaders
gets elected in Kenya
if you guys who live abroad(abroad herein meant to say anyone not living in Kenya)
think it was a joke check this youtube video of the mock elections at Kogello...people in this village left what they were doing to go vote

kwanza those guys who were leading the elections made my day with their attire....the Kenyan flag pants....eeeh these guys.....
so let me give you an update about Kogello,
Kogello is a small town in kisumu where Obama's father was" everyone in that town is an obama's supporter".The old know who obama is, and the young ones' in my thinking are born and when they learn to utter their first words thats the first thing they are taught.....#thinking outloud#
if you still dont believe this story here is another one for you.A mother from the same region who gave birth to twins on that day named them Obama and Mitt...That should tell you that Obama is that storyhere

The most thing that dissapointed me with Obama winning is that i was so longing of that kapublic holiday that i thot President Kibaki would announce after Obama wins....and he never did.i know all kenyans were waiting for that in 2008 where it was made a holiday...aaaai you should have seen my sad face on Thursday..when the polls were reassuring i had even started planning for that free day on the corner.
Anyway..the family looked so awesome..when i grow up i want to dress like Michelle Obama..these lady got style like you cant believe

Although i was sad we didnt get a kaholiday to celebrate Obama's victory
i am happy he did get back to office

Still in the mind of a working kenyan i think Kenyans deserved that kaholiday..........

Put your trust in the lord and he will give you rest

will rest in the shadow of the Almighty

Random Post -creativity

“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.”
Scott Adams

you see the thing about creativity is that its not measurable. you get some that people are more creative than others. explainig the reason behind it is the recent times we have seen creativity become a career something that was not the norm in the i walk in the streets of Nairobi i see creativity everywhere, especially on young people. all these potraiyed in the mode of dressing, doing their hair, starting innovative businesses

here are interesting quotes on creativity

Pablo Picasso

“Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up” – Pablo Picasso

Vincent Van Gogh

“If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced” – Vincent Van Gogh
in my case " if you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot crochet,’ then by all means crochet, and that voice will be silenced"

Salvador Dali

“Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it” – Salvador Dali

Leo Burnett

“Curiosity about life in all of its aspects, I think, is still the secret of great creative people” – Leo Burnett

Jack London

“You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club” – Jack London

George Bernard Shaw

“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last, you create what you will” – George Bernard Shaw

Dr. Seuss

“Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try” – Dr. Seuss

Charles Mingus

“Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can plan weird; that’s easy. What’s hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity” – Charles Mingus


“Originality is nothing but judicious imitation” – Voltaire

Donatella Versace

“Creativity comes from a conflict of ideas” – Donatella Versace

Ray Bradbury

“Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t try to do things. You simply must do things” – Ray Bradbury

Steve Jobs

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, the just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while” – Steve Jobs

Cecil B. DeMille

“Creativity is a drug I cannot live without” – Cecil B. DeMille

George Bernard Shaw

“You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not’?” – George Bernard Shaw

Albert Einstein

“Creativity is contagious, pass it on” – Albert Einstein
