Pack it, bring it, haul it...

Yesterday was a very interesting day at work, the kind of day that means I didn't sleep well, so whats a girl to do when she is awake at 6:30 am on a Saturday?!? I didn't even realize there was a 6:30 am on Saturdays!

There is only one thing to do that early that will also help take my mind off the icky day... get up and play in my crafty room! Here is what I worked on...

What is it you ask? Let me give you a little background...

I had the cutest tote bag from a swap I did...I loved it! I would fill it with all the things I needed for crafty day or activity days or a road trip...and it was big enough to hold EVERYTHING!!

But then I took it on a picnic and it got a bit dirty, so Mr Toadly Crafty took it upon himself to wash it for me..and it shrunk, a lot... to less than half the size it I am not complaining, cause he does ALL the laundry, so how can I complain....but I missed my big tote bag.

So I took that as a sign that I needed to make myself one.. and here it is!

It is HUGE!! Which is exactly what I was aiming for. I will have a little "how to" later cause I didn't take pictures during the process...but it turned out so well I am going to make one for a All Things Pink partner swap I am in over on Two Peas So I will make sure to take pics as I create this time.

I made the "tote jewelry"

with a bit of leftover chain I had from another project and with a few charms from my recent feminine chic charm swap I did with other swappers at Two Peas

Between this and the huge sparkly red daisy, it totally girls it up!

And as long as I keep it hidden from Mr Toadly Crafty...I think it will last until my next crafty day...I hope!

Don't forget the voting for

starts on Monday! I am really excited about my entry!
