The Cutest Little Camera Bag Disguised As a Bowling Bag/Purse!

I finally broke down and bought a real camera (Canon EOS Rebel T5).  Well, as real as I can get on my budget.  What a difference!  I'm very happy with it.  However, it is bulkier then the little point and shoot that I previously had.  I suddenly realized, I need a camera bag.  I started looking around for one and was a little sad at the prospect of a bulky and unstylish camera bag.

Then I came across a photo of this cute Red Camera bag that looked like a bowling bag/handbag!  So excited!! Unfortunately I couldn't get my hands on it.  As far as I could tell, it is only sold in England and no longer shipping to the U.S.

Acme Made The Bowler DSLR Camera Handbag

Although I wasn't able to purchase this really fun Acme bag, I did find something similar.  It still has the bowling bag shape and can also pass as a handbag.  It comes in a couple of different colors; white with black handles, red with black handles, and black with black handles.

Fujifilm 2011 Bowler Bag For Camera

This Fujifilm Bowler bag is sold on Amazon for between $26.65 - $17.95.  And although it is listed as a Dark Blue, mine seems more black then blue.  And it came with a white shoulder strap.  Great deal, huh?

The bag is small, but there is plenty of room for my camera, the charger, cord and manual.  Or you could use that extra space for your phone and wallet or an extra lens.  There are two outside pockets with velcro to store keys etc. in.  The divider is on velcro so you can adjust it.

From A Simple Sketch To Printed Artwork

The little doodle that started it all!  Most of my paintings start out as a little doodle.  The challenge is to keep that spontaneity and translate it into the final painting.

Working on the “P.S. I Love You” artwork.  When hand lettering, it sometimes takes a couple of tries to get it just the way I want it.
