Little Men

I did manage to finish this basket bag this weekend for a friend from church. I was a little nervous because I ordered some magnetic closures off of ebay at a really good price (less than$1/closure) and was worried that they might not be as nice as what I can buy locally, but they work just as well! I’ve linked the ebay store on Bagaholics Anonymous, here.

Also, since my swap package has gotten to it’s destination, and the receiver’s computer is on the outs, I’m going to post 2 of my favorite that went out.

Can you guess who these were for? That’s right: Weirdbunny! I am amazed at what can be done with paper these days – especially after seeing Capello’s beautiful collage.

And finally, allow me to post this picture of my little men, combing their hair on Sunday morning – using water to settle their bed heads.

Please ignore the paintbrush in the sink. Someone had decided that picking mocha paint off the walls was a fun activity so some touching up had just taken place.

    Oh, your boys are pickers too? Why didn’t someone tell me that children fully destroy houses?

    That bag is beautiful!

    I remember the days … my youngest had a thing for drawing on walls for a while. I learned all the tricks in the book for stain removal. Thank God for vinyl wallpaper…!

    Love the bag. I’m still too scared to make one myself.

    Love the basket bag. I have wondered where I could find snaps and purse closures. Thanks for the tip. And love the pic of the boys. Too cute.

    That is a sweet bag. I can see it going to the beach, full of magazines and snacks and a water bottle. Resting nicely in the sand, beside me, as I lounge peacefully. ahhh, one can dream.

    BTW, the comment about the envelope, and not messing up with the address…..that sounded like something I would say! You made me laugh and if you were right beside me, I probably would have slapped you upside the head! (gently of course)!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That’s weird, I thought I already left a comment here!

    I love the pink tone purses you make… they excite the girly in me.

    Your boys are very handsome and so well groomed🙂
