I finished my purse finally. I gave the last one to my mother so I had to get started on a new one for myself. I was carrying around a small brown purse that I had gotten from a thrift store to use the handles off of which are the handles I used here on the purse. Not too bad for 0.99. Can't buy store bought handles for that price. I really like to recycle purses when I can. I actually have one last thing to do it. I chose to use a button closure and I thought I knew what I wanted on this purse but once I had it finished, it just wasn't quite the right look. So I figure I will find the right button soon enough and then it will be complete. We will see how long I get to carry this purse now before I find a new home for it. Thanks for looking.

I couldn't resist posting this big beautiful tree we saw when visiting a friend in Louisiana. It seems like it has a story to say. The things this tree must have seen.

I love that purse/tote! I would love to have your talents for sewing!

Would you mind emailing me directly and I'll give you some tips about how to make 2D cupcake art like the ones I made the cups. I think I need to do a post on how I do it so that I can include pictures, but in the mean time I can divulge some of my secrets to you! If you're patient and handy with an Exacto knife, you can do it. :) thanks for visiting my blog!
