Popping in for a quick Hello!

Hi Friends! I made a purse! I woke up a few weeks ago at 3 in the morning and couldn't get back to sleep. While laying there, this little "rock band" popped into my head and demanded to be born! Once they were done, they needed a project in which to showcase them. So, voila! My version of a rock band. This purse makes me happy when I look at it AND it's big enough to hold all my stuff, but not so big that it looks more tote than purse. You know what I mean? This weekend I also worked on my compo doll refurb. I made friends with the Dremel that Earl bought for me last Christmas (or was it 2004?). Anyway, now I'm hooked! What a great tool! I'm so glad I removed all the old paint. Once it was gone, I found some flaws in the actual composition that I wouldn't have found otherwise so now I can fix them and soon I'll be priming and painting. Sorry if the photo creeps anyone out. She sure is going to be pretty when she's done!
Also, I went thrifting this weekend and found some cute aprons that I now have listed on ebay.
School has been fun, but strangely hard. I took College Composition 26(!) years ago when I was fresh out of high school and got an "A" in it. I don't remember it being so hard! I think I'm just getting old, but I must admit it has been a great experience.
I've been missing Bloglandia. I read blogs on Sunday until my eyes burned! And I'm still not caught up! But I have to say, it's been very good to focus on accomplishing some things and I can't do that if I'm hooked to my computer all the time! Hope everyone is well- have a marvelous day!

  5. It's great to hear from you again! What a lovely purse! Your rock band is so cute! And what a great thing to do with insomnia, or perhaps it wasn't insomnia but rather excitement over this idea. Either way, it worked out great!

  6. Cute bag! Love the aprons. I try to check blogs on Sundays as well. I also have a lovely dremel that is sitting idle. Perhaps I'll try it out now. lol Thanks for the inspiration.
