I prematurely mailed

I was so excited to finish my swap item for Marie, I mailed it on Monday without taking pics first. So, you'll need to go to her blog to see it. And please try not to get stuck looking at pictures of her cute kids and rather attractive husband, focus on the bag at the end of the post. I used some of the fabric my fabulous customer, Heather sent me and I'm really happy with how it turned out (and hope Marie is too). When I opened the fabric, this pink and brown combo said "Marie" to me immediately. Since I've never met her though, maybe my little voice had no idea what it was talking about. Hey Marie, is your husband a fire fighter or am I making that up? That has nothing to do with the bag, just would totally add to the cuteness factor.

Don't forget swappers, that you only have until the end of this month to send your item. I can't wait to see what everyone gets and hope we're all happy and willing to participate again. I'm already thinking about a Christmas themed swap.

On a side note, I've been in a total funk lately. Very little sewing, lots of pity parties, etc. I think it's just a combination of a bunch of stuff - slow sales, money spending freeze sucks, stay at home mom-ness wearing on me, stuff going on with a friend - and I'm trying to decide whether I need to indulge my lack of motivation or force my lazy ass to get back into the craft room and make something.

Kelci-I had a total oohhh aahhh moment when I opened the package. I LOVE the bag-totally my colors, it wasn't coincidence that I was wearing those colors yesterday either!

You crack me up...I love your brutal honesty. Yep-my husband is a firefighter/paramedic. That definitely adds to the cuteness factor for me.

A Christmas swap sounds fun, keep us updated!

Kelci - sorry you are feeling down lately...I can totally relate - with the whole admitting I need to go back to work thing and all. ((HUGS)) I, too, am suffering from a creative funk...I just spent an hour and a half making a dozen thank you cards for Cole's birthday and then promptly threw them away. Maybe we should challenge each other or something.

And, umm...Marie? You live close to me!

Very cute purse! Lori also received her package yesterday. Not sure if she wants to share pics or if she wants me to. Christmas swap sounds good. I think I already know what I would make.. that is if the rules were the same.

Hey Kelci, I finished everything up for the swap today, I will be mailing it tomorrow. Since you are my swap partner, I hope you like it : )

I loved Marie's bag, very cute, I love that print! I would definitely be interested in a Christmas swap as well!

Sorry it is so hot and you are in a funk. It is hot here as well, but we have air conditioning. I hope you feel better soon!
