I am an unfinished work, and so are many of my projects. This blog is just an odd collection of things I make and do.

Bunco Prize Purse!

I've joined a group of friends to play Bunco once a month. It's just a fun dice game, but everyone brings a prize, so everyone goes home with a prize. The cost has to be less than $5.

This month's theme is Handcrafted Items. Since I really liked the Tinkerbell Purse, I decided to make another one from the same pattern. It is made entirely out of fabric I already had, with a fancy brooch pinned on from a bag of old costume jewelry I had on hand.

I hope someone really loves this purse and claims it for their prize.

Kristel said she loves the Tinkerbell Purse. Her sister even tried to buy it from her!

My Life Book

Okay, I didn't actually make this yet...I did the graphic for a journal entry but I love it!

Quote: To the hopeless, life is like a closed book. To the hopeful, life is like a book waiting to be opened. --Ohaa-San

I think more that life is like a book waiting to be written. It’s not a book that someone else wrote, and I just get to see what happens. It is interactive. I write my own story and that is a result of my God-given agency.  I hope I am living up to God’s plan for me, but I doubt it. Still, I see that God can use me where I am now, even if it is not where I originally was supposed to be.  

I think a red view-cover binder (I like 8 1/2 x 11 paper) and a couple of pieces of matching cardstock, mounted with my husband's great photography, would do the job.  I like a picture of Jesus on my journal, but this might be a good book for personal history or printouts of my blogs.
