Silk, Satchels, and Pam

My sweet friend, Pam, is a strong Marine wife and while she awaits the return of her husband in September from Iraq, she's been my crafting partner.

Over Easter weekend I had her come stay with my loud family while we dyed eggs with silk. I guess it's a big thing, as ushered in by the craft-fiend herself, Martha, but here is where I first saw it. If you don't follow Dabbled, you might want to add it to your list.We also made ourselves great Amy Butler bags and wore them to Easter Service.
Mowgli had a heyday in and amongst all our crafting. He laid on, played with, walked over, or ate everything that our hands were busy at. And Lilly, the wonderpup, also adopted this Marine wife for the weekend and loved her as her own.

Both of these projects were so easy, I'd do them again, maybe making a few more bags for some other girlfriends.

Today I'm painting some new cards for the Etsy shop, so stay tuned for those. Here's a hint: these BOOTS were made for walkin'.

With that hint, I'm sure you're doing hand painted portraits of Nancy Sinatra on leather swatches.

How cute are the little eggs, and the bag is gorgeous! How fun to be creative with company!

Those eggs are really cool..

I think you need to start putting some bags on your etsy shop. I want one!

Lindsey said...

Dad, you always know how to make me throw my head back and laugh

Dionne, thanks friend! Next time it should be you.

Tiff, you say that now, then I don't hear anything once I post it! (Ok, maybe not YOU, but you know who you are). ;)

Those are the coolest egg! I need to try that next year. Karin

in response to your comment on my blog - oooh that would be pretty! I will need to take some pics tomorrow. I am about to start cooking dinner now (B will be home in about 15 minutes). I will email them to you. What's your email address?

Don't think I don't look at your pumpkin watercolor on a regular basis trying to figure out how to fit that into my budget. I love that one! But I do see how what your saying would be frustrating.

How much would a bag by Lindsey cost?
