This bag was inspired by Nichole at Papertrey. Here are the instructions on her blog (just scroll down). I just supersized it. ps: I am really bad about following instructions. I always change them up a bit. ;)
I needed a padded case for my laptop last week for traveling. So I made this quick little laptop case. I found the heavy canvas fabric in the clearance bin and sewed old placemats in between the fabric for 'cushioning'. It worked great. :)
Two bracelets I have made.
Finally, another cozie I made on the plane home monday night. ;) It was a great way to use up 6+ hours on a plane. ;)

I just spent 5 days with my aunt and uncle in Illinois. This will make a perfect thank you card for them. My aunt is an avid gardener and loves shabby chic. We went antique shopping together and stumbled upon the most adorable shop. I bought some items for my new scraproom and will share them when the room is complete. :) I am sure I will be ordering more from the store and having it shipped to me. We spent about 3 hours in the same store. WOW!!

My grandfather's and Judy' services are both on friday. I am sad that I will not be home to attend Judy's services and say my final goodbyes. But, she would understand. Thank you all again.
This is a photo of my grandpa fishing here in Alaska. I bet he is fishin' or golfin' right now. :)

A side story, living in Alaska we do not hear owls in the city very often (not like I did living in the country in Illinois). Early in the morning yesterday we were awakened by an owl hoot-hooting outside our bedroom. Very Cool! I saw him last summer sitting in a tree by our house, he is huge. We think he was diplaced by alot of the refurbishing of trails in the state park by our house.

Angie at Chic n Scratch made a tutorial for this cute bag idea. I made my own size and spin on it, but I love the 'idea'. I also love these cupcakes stamps by Hero Arts.
I gave some love to my new Riley stamps this week also. I am having a lot of fun with my Copic markers, but I need to buy more colors. ;)
Splitcoast Stampers had a Tutorial for making this cute little flip card. Perfect for holding a gift card or attaching to a gift bag.
Finally, another little cozie that I designed and made this week. I have many designs drawn out or cut out and in baggies waiting to be sewn. I love mushrooms and the little door and ricrac really added such a whimsical touch to the scene.
My challenge for you today is to try a tutorial or project you have been meaning to do. It is a great kickstart to your creativity. Enjoy!!
