Loving These Bags

So I'm a Coach girl through and through when it comes to my handbags. I even got rid of most of my non-Coach bags about a year ago and I have a whole closet full of Coach bags. It didn't help that I lived VERY close to an outlet store when we were in Hawaii. However, after having seen some of the fabulous handbags on etsy, I may be leaning towards purchasing a few from some of the great artisan setting up so there. One set of bags that I really love is by Sew Gracious. I love the bright fabrics that she uses and how she combines them. I'm not much on the tote bag in general but I would love to carry one of these. You can also see that they are well crafted from her pictures. I just find them very yummy :)

She also does very cute mini wallets.

On a totally unrelated note, this weekend has been pretty much unproductive for me. Especially today. I really got NOTHING done today. Granted I've been trying to use Sunday as my non-etsy day so I'm not too worried about that, but I did want to work on my mom's scrapbook today. I still haven't finished her scrapbook from my wedding, almost 3 years ago now. I haven't done my own yet either. We're planning to go back to Indiana this coming weekend to visit with my dying grandmother and I wanted to have the album finished for her. It would be a total surprise.

So instead of working on that, here's what I did today. We went to church (finally found our home church here and are VERY excited) and then went to fellow etsian Amy's house to pick up a desk that she so wonderfully gave to us furniture-less folk. Then we went to Panda Express because Isaac was dying for some. That took FOREVER because our dumb GPS drove us right through the mall and then started taking us home without even telling us we were there. I have a love hate relationship with Garmin. Most of the time it's hate. Isaac was driving and was getting so frustrated that he started blowing through stop signs without even realizing it and almost got us killed 3 times. That was the end of his driving today.

We finally got there and we ate. Then Isaac went and got some more for dinner tonight. It's pretty far away so we never go there. The guy gave him a 10% discount and a free drink for buying more. Then I got to go to AC Moore as part of the deal of him getting more food. I got a few small things and then we came home.

We spent the next hour or so setting up the desk and then the next hour getting all the computer and stuff hooked up. Then we started trying to get my HP Photosmart C5180 to install on the computer. I was having trouble with it so decided to uninstall the software. BIG MISTAKE. I couldn't get it to reinstall and we'd been trying for almost a week. Isaac was working on it and I was getting frustrated so I went and laid down. I fell asleep for like 2 hours and then got up and called HP. I spent the next 2.5 hours on the phone with them. Finally I was able to talk to someone who really knows what they are doing. She freaking came into my computer and fixed everything for me. I loved it. I felt like the previous hour and a half was a total waste. If they can just come in and do it for you, then why don't they do that from the start?! Oh well, it's working now so tomorrow I plan to do some scrapbooking. The lady laughed at my test picture
Could this be considered doggie porn?



Wow! What a wonderful way to start the day!

Thanks so much for the kind compliments and wonderful blog feature! I'm thrilled...and flattered! Have I said THANK YOU, yet? :-)
