On Etsy, if you like an item or a shop you can "heart" them and it add that shop or item to your favorites. This weekend I got 2 "hearts" from total strangers! Its really not that huge of a deal, but I was just excited to know that people are looking at my shop and though they didn't buy anything, they liked what they saw! :) Gives me encouragement to get cracking and post more items on my shop!

Merry Christmas, Joanna!

After seeing the purse that I made for Mike’s mom my director at work, Bob, asked if I could make a purse for his wife for Christmas. Of course I agreed. He sent me a link to a bag to give me an idea of what his wife would like. The link took me to Chanel. Really….Chanel? I had to break it to Bob that I don’t think I am really Chanel yet. He told me that it was just the color for the idea… and I could do whatever I wanted for that bag. So this is what I came up. This is my version of the Chanel bag. I am giving it to Bob tomorrow. I really hope he and Joanna like it! I think it turned out pretty cute!....ok… maybe not Chanel…but hey…the price tag wasn’t Chanel either!

This bag is 10 ¼ inch by 10 ¼ inch by 3 ½ inch. It has a large outside pocket and 2 inside pockets (one of which is a zipper pocket) and then has a magnetic closure.
