Whoosh... that was me speeding by as I try to complete different things. Yup, I know, I've neglected my buddies and my blog. I didn't intend to, it just happened! I even had a nice lady email me and ask if everything was OK. So yes, things are relatively OK, though things have been a little tough health wise for my DH and I've had an infection of the salivary glands. On the positive side, I am now in touch with most of my immediate family on facebook, though I haven't posted much there. I guess I need to figure out what to do with it. I didn't realize that it had a chat function and my poor brother kept on trying to get my attention and I wasn't around. So I guess you need to do something to make sure that people know that you are away, LOL!

I've taken pictures of a lot of my recent projects and ideas but today, I'd like to share with you the work of a friend of mine. While Teresa is an excellent scrapbooker, and I do mean excellent, she sews absolutely awesome purses and totes. I currently have 4 in my possession, but 3 are earmarked as Christmas gifts.

What is really neat about her totes is that all the ones I've gotten so far have at least 6 pockets either on the outside as does the I'm Feeling Scrappy tote or on the inside as do the two purses and the totes. You can see more of Teresa's work on her blog at and feel free to email her at Teresa616@aol.com if you want more information.
Well July is already coming to a close and I guess it's time to announce the prize for this month. But I won't, this one will be a complete surprise to the person who wins it. In fact, I probably won't announce it till the person gets her prize and I'll let them tell you what they got! How's that for feeling mysterious!
As for next month, I'm going to challenge you to do something and take a picture of it. You'll have till the 15th to get it done and you'll be asked to email me the picture. I'll then post the winning picture and what the person won. How's that for a twist? Well tata for now and ... whoosh... I'm off again!

MC I hope you and your hubby feel better soon. Your friends purses are absolutely adorable. I would bet that if she did those for a living it would be a great career for her. Sounds like you might have a hard time giving the 3 up as christmas presents and want to keep them for yourself. :)

I was wondering about you....hope you are on the mend real soon. Thank you so much for the wonderful things you say about my bags. I love to make them and it is a real pleasure to have others enjoy them as well.
Hope to see you real soon.
