Well, we're going on vacation - what I call a real vacation, a holiday. Resort hotel, drinks by the pool, room service, and sandals! It's been at least six years since I've been on any sort of holiday that wasn't visiting family so this is quite a treat that the kids and I have been looking forward to. So, the last bag I made for a road trip was The Big Bag but this time I wanted something to carry with me, more of a tote, so this is what I came up with. I am absolutely in love with this fabric with all its shades of yellow and orange and big bold flowers. I also just happened to have the perfect limey green for the lining already in my stash.
I had two of these glitter lucite buttons that I've been wanting to use and I think they look pretty good with the fabric. I like boxing up the bottom this way because it creates another spot to add a fun detail.
I think I also have the blog lethargy that's been going around; even though I'm really busy with projects, a new job, house spring cleaning and stuff like that, when I sit down at the computer my brain goes into sleep mode. I'm hoping after I get back from our trip that I'll feel more motivated for blogging. I really appreciate all the comments and apologize for not getting back to everyone - I love keeping up that correspondence but I've been so squeezed for time lately that I haven't been able to, but I do read all the comments and they are very special to me. Being a part of this community has been such an awakening for me and taken me down paths I never even thought to explore - thank you to each and every one of you who read my blog and are so supportive of my work, I am blessed, truly blessed.
