Thursday Purse-Day!

Hi folks!  I’m Purse-Ho!  ok..that joke isn’t even funny unless you are from the ELP.   If you are…you know what i’m talking about!

I hope everyone is keeping cool this summer.  I sure am trying to.

here is this week’s bag!

I got a new wallet this week.   I have previously blogged about this line of wallets.  They came out w/ a new one on June 5.  I was able to pre-order online before they ran out of pre-orders. WHEE!  people get excited about pre-ordering Ipads (normally I would be too, but I hate Apple), but I get excited about pre-ordering wallets.

These pics are from the company’s website.  i am too lazy to take my own pictures lately.  Shame.

Flipside wallet i bought the pink one.  This is the orange one. oh so sweet

I bought the pink one of course.  I love this wallet! I love this company!  it’s way slimmer than the original one.  I’m quite happy with it!  highly recommended!

This week has been a bit crazy with some things going on.  I managed to finished the lace bolero I have been working on.

Date Started
:  April 24, 2010

It took me a while to finish b/c I put it down for a few weeks.  I’m quite pleased w/ it.  I wore it tonight when i went to the Imogen Heap concert and it did it’s job well.  Kept my shoulders covered and i wasn’t warm wearing it. :)   The pictures above are of an item that is not blocked *gasp*.  my bad. :)

Still working on the baby blanket.  The feather and fan is boring me to tears.  booooooo!  But i will finish!  I will prevail!

I made some baby burp cloths for my friend that I made the baby blankets for.  I shipped off the package a few days ago and I hope they got it by now.  Burp cloths are sooo easy.

had to throw in some UT love of course since the new mom is a UT Alumni. :)  If you notice, the burp cloths (minus the UT ones) match the baby blankets :)

Today is June 10, 2010.  It’s been exactly one year to the day that my dear sweet Sassy passed away.

I miss her every day.   I miss her every time I see kitty cats that look similar to her in pictures on flickr or wherever.   I’m really amazed at how fast a year has passed.  Alot of ppl ask me when I’m getting a new cat.  I won’t be getting a new cat any time soon.  I’m just not ready to do so.   I won’t be getting a pet any time soon either.  I’m kind of enjoying the pet-free life, as horrible as it is to say.   Less worries, more money in my pocket.  Doesn’t keep me from missing her little face though.  :)

I haven’t had much substance on the blog lately and I saw that Lissa posted one of these up yesterday and I’m going to be a copy cat and do the same just b/c sometimes I like filling out memes.  sue me.  I get bored sometimes. :)
