Dress up your bags.....jewelry style.

Morning, and what a beautiful morning it is.  Blue skies and the sun is shining, still a nip in the air whilst at the beach but it definitely feeling more like Spring.

I love to make these hand bag charms for gifts, this one was for a teacher.


I really would like to make one for my own bag too but never seem to get around to it.  I don't know why?!

Did you watch the rugby yesterday?
What a cracking match.  I had planned to do a little crocheting after work but got engrossed in the match.  A nice lazy Sunday afternoon was had by all.  Isn't that what Sunday's are all about?

As for plans this week I am hoping to get my kitchen finished off by the end of the week, at long last. The work tops and sink arrive mid week, they will by fitted before laying the new floor....can't wait to see the finished room.   
I have a couple of card orders this week and the usual weekly chores....exciting.com, on that note I had noticed that quite a few of my friends have given up something for lent?
Have you?
How about this......


Now don't you think that is a better thing to give up than chocolate or alcohol?!  
With the added benefit of more crafting time.
It's a win, win situation, don't you think?  Definitely got my vote.
Enjoy your Monday, more from me tomorrow.  x

Love your bag charm, i have a few and when I look at what I paid for them I should be able to make one or two with some of the beads and charms I have collected. Thanks Erika for giving me the idea.

Lazy day here, but must move myself soon have a card to do for Thursday.

I would love to give up "housework" for Lent would give lots more time ....... think I will just stick to giving up Alcohol which I never drink anyway ........can stick to that no problem.
I absolutely love your bag charm, a fantastic gift.
