Things are just crazy here.  I really wanted to participate in this swap, but thinking about it, I am just going to stress myself out if I try.

I'll be stalking the gallery and wisting/pinning things, I'm sure!

Sigh. Decisions. On one hand this swap sounds awesome and fun and I'd so love to join! Especially as I'm planning to pull out my sewing machine and start making purses this week. On the other hand: the only "purse" I carry is one of LeslieHappyHearts little keychain zipper pouches, large enough for a few credit card/business card size items and a chap stick and a few $'s. I own many more purses but almost never use them.

I sent my questionnaire in, this is going to be so much fun!!   Grin  Can't wait for Partners!

"Electric Dreamer" You could have it made for someone else & give it away!  I do the same thing with the little pouch but I still like to have bag/purse for when I go out somewhere or maybe on a trip.  Hey maybe a bag for your crafting or a travel bag would be neat. Just some ideas!
Here is a bag I got from a swap that "tenitsu" gave me & I love it. I use it for my craft projects.


It has a lot of pockets on the outside.


Very roomy inside too! She got it off of my Pinterest. I think the tutes are on Craftster's

Hmm... I have always wanted one of those "folds up into it's own little pocket" type bags to carry when traveling. And need a berry picking bag for next year. And one can never have too many grocery bags (though I probably come close). I will see how my next week turns out then decide (I'm renting out my sofa in a 1 bedroom apartment. Space will be at a premium)

I don't really use purses either eclectic dreamer, but I would love a nice big project bag, so I think I'm gonna get this questionnaire filled out soon!

 I'd love to do this one but my hubby has so many plans for the month of Sept which don't include our move. So I am booked up. I may join last minute if things clear up for us and he stops making extra plans.  Embarrassed
