I have had an exciting past two days. Yesterday I posted the Amy Butler napkins see in my previous post and they sold the same day. I had them left over from Burro Days and said that I was going to list them if they didn't sell then forgot about them. Today a made a reall cute Annie bag out of the new fabric I purchased , a blue and white hawaiian floral and it sold the same day. I know that this doesn'tr seem like much to alot of people but I have been working so hard at promotong my sops and I guess it is starting to pay off. Just excited.

If you have a new addition to your family or need a gift for someone who has please check out my friend at Crystals Cozy Cottage. http://www.etsy.com/shop/CrystalsCozyCottage?ref=seller_info She puts a lot of love and time into each piece she creates. And how about her own design for fingerless gloves, the color is great and they look so soft and comfortable.

This is a beautiful computer bag! Styled after the Japanese art of Origami the bag is folded and sewn together in a way that it has two outer compartments and a larger one in the middle which closes with a magnetic snap. The front and back compartments hold full size files.Constructed in a beautiful Batik pattern and contrasting navy solid cotton lining, both side compartments close with an elastic loop around a large green wooden button and are accented with two beaded fobs and two charms imprinted with "inspire" and "wish" on the bottom.The bag is stiffened with cotton batting.The bag measures 16 by 16 inch and has a drop of 15 1/2 inches from top of strap to top of bag.This is a beautiful bag and fabric with rich earth tones and is the only fabric I have of this pattern. It will be a "one of a kind" so you better snap it up fast!
You can see it in my shop http://www.etsy.com/listing/52890100/batik-3-compartment-computer-bag
We have had so much rain here recently and yesterday was no different. After trying our hand flyfishing in the ponds to no avail and we couldn't finish staining the cabin because of the impending rain we decided to take a ride over Boreas Pass. It was beautiful to see the huge storm clouds building up. We saw a moose and a car which had gone over the edge somtime recently. The wildflowers were magnificent and have stayed for quite a while because of all the rain. It was a wonderful ride.

The other day I stopped in to see my long time friend Robyn that I had not seen since I had moved back to Colorado. She was on Staycation and getting ready for a big BBQ that she was hosting which we went to yesterday. Alot of good food and beer was consumed by alot of people. But I noticed her Great Pyerinese sp? had very huge white eyes! The dog is only 3 years old and went blind all of a sudden. He is a great dog but walks very gingerly bumping into things occassionally. All Robyn has to say is "careful" and he changes his direction a bit. So I made him this neckerchief:) I didn't get a picture of him but maybe I will later and post. He was very appreciative!
