Sarah, I will contact you today to get your details.
Now on to the Good Stuff!!!!

I used to make purses, seriously. The only problem was 1 bag would take all day long and nobody wanted to pay more then 40 dollars for one. So not only was I losing a day but I was also losing money as It cost more than 40 dollars to make one of these. So I put the purse thing aside but never really forgot about it.


OLD STYLE!

I personally don't carry a purse. I don't for many reasons but the main one is I will have an ADD moment and leave it behind. Its a tried and true tested fact about myself, I am not a good "carrier of things". So for the last few months I have been toying with making different bags. I really love the messenger style of bags, but they were way to big for me. Although they do come in handy at the post office when I need to put my envelopes somewhere.



For me the BIG problem with bags is... The bigger they are, the more crap you can put in them. Seriously do you really need all that crap? I can look right now in my last purse and there is still probably 100 receipts, 20 misc pens that I couldn't ever find, a few GI Joes, 3 or 4 Nintendo DS stylus, unwrapped gum (hopefully not chewed), loose change, fabric swatches, etc.. you really get the point.

Every time I have to travel, I just get a new bag that Is fresh and clean for my trip, because when I do travel, I do need a bag .. and start collecting crap all over again.

When you think about it, when you are traveling.. what do you need? Tickets.. ID.. a Book.. passport etc. You also need both your hands free to carry on your luggage, because I'm sure you are all the ones that take up the overhead compartments with the really not carry on luggage but hopefully will get away with it bags. So I set out to design a bag that I can travel with, that will fit all my "need" crap and leave my hands free.

This bag is in a messenger style. Its 9 inches wide and 12 inches long. It has a long across chest shoulder strap and will sit comfortably on your hip. Its lightly padded so It will protect your cell phone and small camera. It has a Velcro closure, and the magnet ones may cause issues with credit cards. There is also a matching passport cover that goes with it. You don't' have to put a passport in it, It will hold business cards, ID's etc.


This is a new Item that will be added to my shop after I come back from the holiday. It will retail at $35, and come in a variety of prints and patterns. And today IM GIVING IT AWAY!!!!

  5. My worst Christmas gift was a guitar. I don't play guitar. I had no desire to learn how to play. My DH thought he heard me oversay that I wanted to learn how....oh well!

  6. My worst gift? has to be the some really ugly real cheap Christmas decorations we got for several years from some friends of my husbands - they were just awful! They gave us that junk for about 5+ years!

  8. My worst gift was a Christmas decoration, one of those big light up snowmen - well it looked cool, but when we put it up it didn't work - no lights worked so it was a flop :(

  14. I think I removed those bad memories... Or maybe I never really got anything too hideous! But speaking of bags, I did receive a hideous bag for my birthday a few years ago. It really was not my style at all, and it came from what was my best friend! :-/ Such a disappointment..
    I love the travel bag!

  16. Oh, that's a tough one. Nothing really stands out except the heinous yellow am/fm radio headphones I got for Christmas from my grandparents when I was about 10. I *really* wanted one of those fancy new Walkman cassette players - like the one she bought my COUSIN!

    Yeah, Grandma. I know how I rate.

  18. Well, the worst Christmas gift I ever got was --- every year! My sister likes old lady stuff, antiques, somebody calls them, and I once told her something was pretty and she lit up like the proverbial Christmas tree and from that Christmas forward, I get cut glass, carnival glass, depression glass, well, I don't know what she's talking about because it's all just hideous glass!

    Last year (and the year before, and the year before and the year before) I told her she could get me something else if she wanted. We'll see what this year holds.

    Like Jen above me, I get the ridiculous compote dishes, and my other sister gets something actually pretty (though still the dreaded antiques)

    Yes, I have to carry a small bag, too, otherwise I end up with the weight of the world on my shoulder.

  19. The worst gift I have gotten is underpants! I got them from my grandma a couple years back. Not only were they three sizes too big, they were also "granny-pants", AND bought in another country. I think I still have them stuffed unopened in a drawer somewhere

  20. The worst gift was soap and not just one year but several years thereafter. I was beginning to get a complex and wondered if these folks thought I stunk...wha?!?!! *lol* Good golly, don't give soap or underpants (reading the last post *giggles*) as a gift, c'mon!

  22. the worst gift... probably a shirt that didn't fit and I couldn't exchange b/c it was from another country - it's still in my closet and never been worn.
