Busy Little Beaver!



I recently completed this adorable Messenger Bag for a friend.  This is one of those projects I had a hard time handing over,  I guess that just means that the person receiving it is going to love it that much more!  I just might have to add this to my TO DO list and make myself one.  I changed up the way I did the handle vs. the last time I made this bag...I purchased webbing and some fun hardware.  My friend is definately going to be stylin' when she goes around town carrying this bag!...On the right is a card I came up with while I was supposed to be cleaning off my desktop...I had a few of the peices that made up this card laying around and I decided to come up with a card using them, and this is the finished project...And last but not least, another custom bag I put together for a friend.  She gave me some of her old military blouses and wanted a military rag bag, and my ideas started to explode once I got the blouses!  I ended up adding the pockets along with name tags to add storage to the bag and completed it with a fun fabric flower that she can move depending on what side of the bag she uses (yes, this bag is reversible!)  Off to figure out my next project!

Another Project: Complete!

I took some pictures of my friend and her family back in April and I was telling her how I wanted to find an old window to put pictures in...little did I know she had a collection of old windows in her garage.  As a thank you for taking her family's pictures, she gave me an old window!  I had a before picture of it, but can't seem to find it on my computer...it was a moss green color, not my favorite.  With the help of the hubby we were able to spray paint a cream crackle paint onto my new treasure.  I had just taken some fun new pictures of my sweet little kiddos, and knew this window would be a perfect place to frame and display all of their sweetness!
 I must say, I am THRILLED with how it turned out! 
 Here is a close-up of the bottom corner...yes, those are scrabble letters! :)...along with another new addiction, fabric flowers!
I love banners and couldn't pass up putting one on this old window!  Now I'm off to figure out which wall to hang it on in my home!
