The Martha in Me

I don't consider myself to be a crafty person. I never really have been. When it comes to making my own crafts, well, they usually turn out to be a disaster. But lately I have been on a craft kick knowing that the outcome probably won't be what I was hoping for. And thanks to some friends here, they have inspired me to give my crafty skills a try. So I made a purse. And to my ASTONISHMENT... It actually turned out just fine. In fact I am toting it around town as my purse.

TAH - DAH


The flower was actually really easy to make! ( Olivia was mad that I wasn't taking pictures of her, so she made her way into the photo!)



The inside of the bag matches the flower. And there are a couple of pockets too!



I even enjoyed making it enough, that I will probably make more. And I hope that this crafty side of me will even take on some new projects. Because it is going to be a long winter!

ok, so you are so cute and creative, I totally think you are crafty. from your home to your projects they always look amazing. I love the bag- it really turned out great. Now you can go bigger and go crazy- you've got the basics down.
I'm so glad I found your blog- I've been dying to read my close friends around here stories. i've read a lot of your blog too- the house pics are great. Fun to see it in the first stages.

Heather, if you're not crafty than I am the anti-craft. The purse is really cute.
