So I made another diaper bag for a lady who wanted a key fob.
Yep, that’s my chubby hand. :o)
When I made the key fob it made me think of my store-bought purse that I’ve been carrying around for months without a zipper pull. It’s a shame that I’ve been pinching that itty bitty ring to open and close my purse for so long. So I grabbed a scrap and made a zipper pull. Then I noticed that the strap was breaking so I replaced the strap. A little pink, I thought, would spruce this purse right up.
So I carried it to ballet class tonight and this is how the conversation with my ballet buddy went to the best of my memory:
Buddy: What did you do to your purse?
Me: My zipper pull fell off and my strap was breaking so I replaced them. Don’t you like it?
Buddy: Well, it doesn’t really go. What do you think, Jen?
Jen (ballet instructor): I don’t really like it.
Me: But I could have just thrown the purse out because the strap was breaking, but I didn’t. I added a splash of pink. And I like it. In fact, I think I’m going to post about it.
Buddy: No you’re not, are you?
Me: Oh yes I am!
Okay, so maybe it’s not the best combo or my proudest piece. And I appreciate honesty, I really do. But I always tell my kids, “You need to be a man of your word.” So since I said I’d post it, I gotta do it. So ballet buddy, here you go. :o)
