Thank you all so much for your nice comments about these purses.... one will definitely be included in my giveaway. I really enjoy making these, they're a lot of fun to do.
I spent a good part of yesterday (with help from my Mom) organizing our den/craft room and am so pleased with the results. Everything now has a place, and Mr. S. can still use the room without feeling overwhelmed by craft items everywhere! Here are a couple of pics:
I found the green tray in the office supply section at Wal-Mart... it is a great holder for my scissors, tape measure, etc. The green flower cup holds chalk pencils, seam rippers, sewing gauges and other assorted items. I got it (along with the green "S" just for fun!) at Michael's for half price.
The bookcase still has some books and photos in it, but I managed to secure the top of it and the bottom shelf for my plastic bins full of sewing items. I stuck my ironing board between the bookcase and the wall, and used an empty basket to hold all of my odd-shaped items that wouldn't fit in containers. I'm so looking forward to crafting/sewing in here now!
I had my 6 week check up today (has it really been that long since the surgery??) and the doctor gave me a clean bill of health.. yay! I can't believe how much better I feel since having the hysterectomy... wish now I had done it years ago!
I am trying something new for dinner tonite.... the Asian Noodle Salad that Pammy featured on her blog the other day. It looked so delicious I just had to try it... besides, it is too hot to use the stove anyway! I've got oodles of veggies to chop up, so I better get in the kitchen. Hope you have a great rest of your day.
