2.6.11 ... a treasury . a salvaged messenger bag . our sweet besos

here's something i haven't created in a l-o-n-g time.  i curated this treasury for my eco etsy team tuesday treasury entry.  it features members of our eco friendly team.  you can view the actual treasury and access any of these items and more here:  http://www.etsy.com/treasury/4d4ee21ba3728eef0ca0dec6/eco-blue-valentine  ... i had fun with it.  i used to make them often.  i would like to return to creating them regularly.  

in other creative news... ev has this old messenger bag he loves but it has a corporate logo he wished was not on the front.  so i covered it with one of his favorite hawaiian fabric pieces.  i wasn't sure my sewing machine could sew through the thick plastic coated fabric but it did fine.  what turned out to be the bigger challenge was maneuvering the unwieldy bag.  it was not fun at all.  but i do love the result.  on the inside i used a double layer of tyvek and yes! paste to attach the patch and cover the logo reverse.  

and last, but never least, a look at my side kick, miss besos (kisses in spanish).  she follows me around and is quite insistent that i pay attention to her and not my silly projects, including photo time.  she's 12 and i love the little demanding girl.  isn't she beautiful?

mom, pleeeaaase pick me up.

hmmm....that doesn't seem to be working.  let's see....

thinking...thinking...i know there's got to be a way to get her to drop the camera and pick up the cat.  i just know it.

yes, good old determination ... stamina.  i have all the time in the world.  she'll find me irresistible soon enough.  when you got it, you got it.  and i have it.  yes, i do.
oh sure you know it . she won.  and that's fine by me.  

sweet dreams, everyone.  thanks for stopping by.   until tomorrow.  happiness to you. from me. with heart.   ox joon
