"I can make that"

Have you ever said that?

Pretend you never have.

Pretend you are NOT a craftsperson.

Strike that sentence from your vocabulary.

Otherwise...

You'll end up making THIS darned purse for your middle daughter!

So...middle daughter, DON'T LOOK IF YOU WANT TO BE SURPRISED!

After I was almost finished, aka, leaving the hardest part for last I asked my hubby, "WHAT AM I DOING?"
His reply? "Making a purse from junk."

Guess I need not be making one for myself.

File this under the catagory, "Fun, but not worth drinking 10 Capri Suns for"


At least I did something creative today. Yesterday I worked on my knitting (socks) and tomorrow I begin with the "gang" in the 1 hour of dedication to quilting.

For one whole summer I saved empty Capri Sun pouches. Want 'em? 'cause that's as far as I got. I'm sure they're still around here somewhere. Cute purse, though, and hey, is that your arm? Cute arm, too! ;o)

It's great! And what a funny blog--I was just shopping in Saugatuk Michigan with friends Friday and I said or thought "I could make that" a dozen times. But I've changed recently--no desire to actually do it, AT ALL! But the purse IS cute.

Whenever my mother and I are anywhere and see anyting, my mother will say "You can make that." She says it so much that she has all of us saying it, and it is kinda like a family saying now. That is an amazing purse. Is it really strong enough to hold things in it? It would certainly be a conversation piece.
