Mama's got a brand new bag

I lay in bed this morning wondering what I was going
to post for WW and had no clue. My *studio* is a royal
mess right now as I am cleaning, sorting etc. and you
certainly do not want to see phots of that. :)

Then I saw *it*.

My brand new bag that I purchased a few weeks ago to haul all my necessities on my weekly trek to my booth. It is full of tags, scissors, pegboard hooks string, pens etc.

I found it at Hobby Lobby and regular price it was only $7 or $8. {If you use one of their 40 % off coupons it will be even cheaper}

You may not know this, but I am truly a *bag lady*. My sister is the shoe maven in the family and I am the bag lady.

I love bags/purses in all shapes and sizes. I can switch them up often as needed very fast. However,I don't own tons of bags because I do try to keep things at a minimum for lack of storage so when another one moves in another one usually moves out.

My bff has me wondering today what is in store for my birthday in March. She told me she spent a day last week creating my gift. {and the next day critiquing it...lol} I can't wait to see what she made this time. She comes up with the neatest ideas and I always love what I get from her every year.

Happy White Wednesday and be sure and check out Faded Charm for more lovely posts.

{Please remember to keep Sandi of A Cottage Muse in your prayers as she has open heart surgery tomorrow} Blessings~

It feels much better and the snow is slowly disappearing... Tom found about a 8 foot patch of green grass out in the back yard and is out hitting tons of golf balls out into the field... He will go pick them up this spring... I have been working on a memory book for a young gal as a gift that we have watched her play sports the last four years.. It will take me another week to complete but I am enjoing making it....
