Because change is as good as a rest

That old blog template was getting tired. Plus I needed a little colour to help fend off the doldrums in the middle of this cold snap we're having.

There are good reasons why the new header doesn't include any recent pictures...It's because you can't see my face these days! That's right - it really is THAT cold!

In other news, thanks to the link from the wonderful-Andrea-who-finds-the-coolest-artsy-stuff-online I made a funky tote bag out of fused plastic bags. I love it! Don't throw away your plastic bags!
If you live in my vicinity and have an abundance of plastic bags, I'd be happy to take them off your hands. The girls are jealous of my funky bag, but I don't have enough shopping bags around the house to make any for them (I've gotten pretty good at bringing my own bags to the store).

I use my own canvas bags, but if you send me your address I can send the plastic bags I usually recycle to the store to you, if you make me a really cool bag.

I love, love, love the new look! It makes me want a change,

I love the new blog banner: unpretentious and lots of fun. Will yuo be my friend? (But you're never taking me sky diving!) And now how I wish I could sew! Your bag is amazing.

OOH! I love the new look.

Okay - that bag is too cool. I love it. I actually have a bag that is made out of juice bags (the Capri sun type ones). I love finding new ways to recycle!

joyce said...

you did the bag already?!!
I am soooooooooooooo JEALOUS!
Maybe now my competitive insecurity will kick in and I'll make one sooner than later...

(its gorgeous- waaay to go)

do they have to be thicker bags or can they be thinner like Walmart bags? I have some that say United Grocery (That's an Oklahoma only store). I'd be more than happy to send out to you. Also a dollar general bag which is yellow.
