As an Aussie the pocketbook/purse confusion is so interesting.  Here we are more likely to have a handbag instead of what I think those in the US call purse. This is the bag that we keep everything in, make-up, hairbrush, chewing gum, phone, etc.   In our handbags you would find our purse (although sometimes called wallet) which is where we keep our cash, coins, and credit cards, store memberships etc, and licences. 
My thoughts from my over-exposure to US culture was that a pocket-book was most equivalent to what craftylittlemonkey crafted, so I did some googling.  You americans like to make things confusing, regional dialects, apparently it depends where you are in the country as to what you will call something.

But... I'm Canadian!

No really Miss B, what is a pocket book? I'm glad you like the thing I made, I thought it turned out pretty cute, but is it a pocket book or not?

haha i love the confusion over a pocket book. to me and the people im know it is a wallet essentially but carries a check book and check book log as well as cash cards and ids.

that really is a fabulous package that any body would be happy to recieve.

now we all have alot to live up to =]

I was just thinking about the regional differences in language today. In some areas, we call soda pop "soda", in some areas we call it "pop", and in some areas we call it "coke" regardless of whether it's Coca Cola or not. There's also us Southerners that like to say y'all. :p

I like owls. I am forgetful and clumsy. Zombies are cool. My life is filled with awesomeness and yours should be too. ^.^

my ex-mother-in-law calls her purse a pocketbook and she is from New York. Yes, we Americans do like to make things confusing.

Ok guys, I'm pretty sick but I'm making an effort to post up some pics of my wonderful (and enormous!) parcel from Miss Barbara. I'm sorry they aren't terrific photos but it's super rainy today and if I wait for sun half these things will have dissapeared with my kiddies by then. They weren't all that happy with me taking stuff away from them after we opened it last night so that I could keep it all together for pics, lemme tell ya.

This batch is all the made things

Dry erase/owl covered cork board embellished with bronze coloured ribbon, an owlyfied zippered pouch, felted purse with added owl patch, key fob, two crchetted owl stuffies (one is supposed to be for my daughter and one for me, guess who has them both?), my fave~ the dottee, it's her first! I'll definately post close up pics when I can get a good shot, a little leaf trimmed bag full of hand stamped owl note cards with envelopes and gift tags (great for swaps! I'll use them all in no time;)), and for my son an owl hacky sack with a laminated sheet of instructions, pretty cool!

And here are all the extras

Stickers, picture frame, magnetic I <3 Animals notepad, Jungle Jacks, grow castle, owl spiral note book, "Create" pin, mini bubbles for both kids, monkey socks with keychain, and sea shells and a post card from Atlantic city for my nature boy's collection.

Whew! Spoiled! Don't be jealous though, all of your parcels are on the way!
Ok, back to bed with a cup of hot tea for me.
