well hello Saturday: a gift to myself

Let's face it. Sometimes you've just gotta. I was dying for one of the tall artist's pouches. So late yesterday, I scrounged through my scrap leather and found two, just big enough, un-matching pieces, some distressed red leather and a wooden ball for the pull, and I finally found the courage to cut into this piece of hand stamped linen (a lovely gift from an extremely sweet lady). And do you know what?  

I love the mishmash styling of this little bugger.  I mean REALLY love it.  Something about making something lovely from scraps makes my heart go pitter patter.

Have a wonderful Saturday. Find something that makes your heart go pitter patter.

FYI: more artist's pouches (the matching kind) can be found here.

  4. Good for you! We often forget that we need pretty new things, too, and just make them for everyone else.

  5. I really covet that (both the bag and the creativity). You deserve it. :)
