Thank you for all your kind comments on the bake sale items. I guess they all sold. I just dropped them off and left yesterday morning. I hope those who bought enjoyed them.
Right after work on Friday, I ran to Joanne's Fabric store because I needed some magnetic snaps to finish my latest denim handbag. It is rare that I go into Joannes and leave with just one item!
Friday was no exception. I came home with all of this fabric--just a yard of each-- and two little bundles of turquoise and black/white fabric. Each bundle has 8 pieces of 9-inch x 21-inch coordinating fabrics. It's a good way to get a nice assortment of different patterns in the same color family.
Today I went back to Joanne's because a new sale started. They had purse handles for $4 each--original priced at $6.99 to $13.99 each. I could not resist! I also picked up more magnetic snaps because I already used up the ones I bought on Friday.
Early Saturday morning I finished my latest bluejean purse with the black accent vinyl. I used it all weekend.
Ever since I began making these denim bags, I have been wearing jeans on the weekends. You may remember that I said I almost never wear jeans...well, now that I have quite an assortment of bluejean bags, I had to buy some jeans to go with them!
Last week I ordered a few Christmas decorating books from the Michigan Electronic Library. I picked up the first one today. I think I am going to spend a little time browsing through it tonight to see if anything inspires me.
I have been doing sunflower trees for the past 6+ years (at work). Maybe I will do a bluejean/burlap/sunflower tree this year at home.... anybody have their tree up yet?
I would like to share and answer a recent comment. Since it's anonymous, I can't send an email answer.

You're very real and personable. Your home reflects your enthusiasm, unique skills and love of home and family. I return as often as I can to catch up and oftentimes get a bit of inspiration for my own home. Too often all the other blogs just look the same, hard to tell the difference. You're one of my favorites and I enjoy my visits and truly appreciate you sharing.
Thank you, Willow. I am so glad you find some sort of inspiration reading my ramblings. I would love to hear about your own home projects inspired from something I posted!
That goes for all of you out there--It would be a thrill to hear about something you made because I wrote about it.
