New bags...and holidays have officially started...

Hi...just a couple of bags I made a while back...thus the crumpling...lol...the purple bag is chiffon, type nylon...its real vintage material that I bought a while back...isn't it gorgeous....the other bag in green i made from 2 fat quarter and some lining...the other is just a tote...great size for taking to op/thrift shops I think...i went through this stage where I was making bgs and going to sell them....oh well...they sit in my linen cupboard now, packed away in a bag...lol...ironic really...


next item on the agenda...Jacob woke with a cough and Connor woke with a cold...what can I say...its the beginning of the holidays for us...one day early...


Kristin...this photo is for you...my attempt got there by half...hope you get a laugh from it....people...matching jammies is very rare in our house...the kids do have them, they choose to wear non matching...call it creative choices...lol...


do you see what Jacob is doing...yes...i taught him to knit...he's not bad actually...he's making a teddy bear scarf...don't we all start wit a doll or bear scark...wel i did...lol..


 
until then....

Those are pretty little bags. I think the purple one is my favorite. How neat that Jacob knits.

Hope everyone is well soon.

Below is a general message for all participants of the AMG. You have been awesome.

I want to make sure that as much as possible that everyone else in the group is aware of when you post something for our group, The Artistic Mother's Art Group, so that you will receive visits. We now have 99 participants. That is so great! Because we are so large, it is not possible to visit each and every post that every member puts up; so when you post something related to The Artistic Mother's Art group, I would suggest that you start your title off with "Artistic Mother" to maximize your chances of others from the group paying you a visit. I look at the blog roll for our group every day; and when I see those words, I automatically know that this is a post that I don't want to miss. Please continue to check the blog roll on my blog for Artistic Mother Group related posts on a regular basis so that we can continue to encourage one another in our efforts to do a little something creative each day. Only five show at a time. Just click "Show All" to see all of the blogs. Also, keep in mind that if you are leaving encouraging comments, that will ensure that you will receive some back yourself.

Another thing you can do to help you remember to check my blog often to see if I have posted or check the blog roll to see if others have posted is you can put my blog on your blog roll and/or in your reader so you'll easily see when I've posted and you don't have to try to remember on your own.

You have been a very busy woman! Your bags look wonderful:)

On another note... is that a lemon tree in your yard a few posts back? If so I am envious!
