I Like Purses Like Some Like Shoes

15 - 1 My latest purse! 🙂

I tend to change my purse with the seasons. Someday, I hope to change more often. 😉

I decided to buy this one because it holds ALOT! I figured with beach and pool season coming up it won’t hurt to be on the ground since it was cheap. I bought it at the Big W on clearance for $9.00! 😉

I have a similar one that is white and black but it ended up finding all the dirt and showing it. I thought I better get one that will hide it better. I think I could probably wash it. There are only two separate pockets and then a big deep pocket where everything will make it’s home.

I have a book, wallet, and several journals. One is a sketchbook, writing notebook, and my calendar book. There is still room for my Nook! Heck I might even be able to fit some clothes! LOL

The straps are adjustable so I can lengthen them to wear like a messenger bag. I really like that. I liked the messenger bag I bought last year but it was limited for things. I really liked having it cross my body so it was not always falling off my shoulder. I hate when that happens.

The next on the list to purchase is a new wallet. I love the one I have but it is zebra white and black and is really getting dirty. Sigh. My son Jessup picked it out for me. 😉

I know I could eliminate the need for a big purse by going all electronic with the calendar, etc but I really like paper still. I like drawing and putting colors to it. I don’t think that will ever change. 🙂

I can’t forget the love of pens and markers! I can never have too many of those either. 🙂

What’s your style of purse?

Pink with some bumps

The final project on the wall. I love it. It adds some color where there is no color. My solution to not being able to paint the wall. 😉

My finished “Love Tree”. I put the sticker hearts for the leaves. I will someday make me an actual Valentine tree. A small one. I don’t want to go all crazy like Christmas or anything. I think my hubby would say NO. 🙂 What is a tree without some rocks and flowers beneath it.

I have to say it was brutal doing this one. The hot glue gun attacked my left thumb. I have a nice little blister but at least the pain has subsided. I like this one because it has the three hearts for my sons, the top rock heart is my hubby, my heart is over his with the sticker hearts, and then my daughters heart is the bottom rock heart with the pretty pink beads in the middle.

I love playing with paints and found objects. I love that it consumes my time so I don’t have to do housework, at least for the moment. 🙂

The Paint PINK

My “Love Tree”. I have always enjoyed painting trees. I have no idea why. I wonder if I was a tree in my previous life or something.

My hearts. I love to do art for each of the holidays. This is the first I have done for this holiday. I love Valentines Day. I love the kindness and the pretty colors. My hubby said when he saw that I had splashed some color on the canvas finally, oh you put pink on it. I just grinned. He doesn’t like pink too well. 🙂
