I hope everyone is having a happy Monday and a great start to the week ahead. I know, I know-happy and Monday in the same sentence seems like an oxymoron. I'm with you on this thought, but I am trying to project a positive light on the start to my week(in hopes it will fly by!)
I made a couple of projects this past week. The first one is one I have almost bought and decided to take a stab at making-a purse organizer. I do like to change purses and find it difficult because I have too much stuff in my purse. Also, my purse was becoming an embarrassment at checkout time in stores. I was constantly digging for things. Here is the before:
Here is the after:
I am hoping I can keep this up. So far so good. I think this will be even more effective in one of my slightly bigger purses. I followed a tutorial from Hope Studios. Jennifer used a pretty print for hers while I chose a khaki neutral.
Thanks Jennifer for sharing a great project.
I also made a scarf from Ruffles and Stuff. I decided to use some plaid fleece I had on hand(that matches my camel tan coat) and I think it turned out cute. Using fleece made it slightly more bulky to put buttonholes in so after 8 failed attempts(and some natural frustration), I gave up and put snaps on as the fasteners but I still used the buttons as a decorative touch. What do you think?
I am loving how different it is. I am always knitting my scarves and this is a change-up on my usual. I like shaking things up a bit!
Once again, I am so happy I have discovered all the wonderful blogs I frequent. I have learned so much from so many of them. It has been such an enriching experience.
My husband and I are excited that our new Posturpedic bed will be delivered this week. As we get older, our aches and pains can prevent us from getting a good night's sleep. Because we spend so much of our life sleeping, I felt it was a good investment to get a really good bed. I will let you know if it is as good as they say.
Also, I don't know if anyone else is a fan, but Destination Truth has its season premier this Thursday at 7:00. It is a special live event. I have been a fan since the beginning and I am excited.
I hope everyone has a great week. I hope you can take the time to do something you enjoy. Take care. Nancy
