Although you've well imagined me vacationing aside blue/green waters with sand beneath my feet; tisn't so.
I've been in my basement, sewing.
Faced with growing piles of upholstery samples, I'd become somewhat overwhelmed. It was like I was living in a warehouse full of possibility, and in that land of plenty, I lost my ability to "make something from nothing".
So I came up with a plan: First off, planned deprivation. Move 75% of my stock into the garage and out of sight. Then take a single pile (or two) and set it beside my sewing machine. Challenge myself to just make something out of what I saw before me.
What happened? Lots of tote bags; shopping style. Simple. Sturdy. With practically a lifetime guarantee (except I'll never put that into writing....)
And since I've been MIA for so verrrrry long, I wonder if all the shoppers have picked up their pennies and moved over to some online shop with a little bit of reliability? So, I just want to move this stuff. All I want is ten bucks per bag. When all ten are sold, it'll add up to $100.00 which is a lot more than what I've been raising lately. And it's time to get up and get moving.
Especially after having watched "God Grew Tired of Us"- a documentary film about the "lost boys" of Sudan.
Wow. Have we got it good.
And surely we have a responsibility to do something for people without so many choices.
For just ten bucks, you can help me make the first step towards that something.
#1 : Sold to Valerie Ruth for $20.00!
Just go to "comments" and indicate which tote bag you are wanting to purchase. The price is $10.00 Canadian. You can pay through paypal, or send me a cheque in the mail. Once the payment has cleared, I'll put it in the mail for you. Shipping to most places is around $10.00 Cdn.
#2: sold to Robyn for $10.00
#4: Sold to Heidi for $20.00!
Can I bid? Can I bid?
hi Tanya! so nice to see that you're still on the ball. The post published before I was actually done with the editing, so you were subjected with photos and no explanation! sorry about that.
I want number three - but I refuse the $10 price tag. I'm sending $25.
I want #4...but I too refuse the $10 price tag. I'll get my sister (Jenni) to pick it up from you if that's OK.
i'll pay $20 for #1.
Number 8 please. I too will pay 25.
gosh, you people made me choke back tears- thank you for your endless support and generosity! I hasten to advise you that these are SIMPLE tote bags- not lined, no pockets- just plain, simple, sturdy bags. still want them?
Can you send me your mailing (and cheque name) details again?
that's the thing about good people- we've already reached our goal of $100-
Thanks to you...

Number 5 for me if they're still available. I haven't been around to visit in such a long time!
How about $30.00 for the pair?
the two pictures under "#5" are of the same bag- just front and back. Is that what you meant by a pair? or is there another bag you like as well as #5?

Ok Sweet Bag Lady...i wanna get # 6,7,9,10 for a total of $100.00. Swell? I am a new blogger..am I doing this right? Guess who! xoxo
ok..i will give you a hint. My last name might be Ross and I'm from the Wheat City. smooooch!
seriously? no wonder I was laughing and giggling as I was recopying 'sheentya' and trying to do a mental and moral inventory of WHO IN MY LIFE would choose a name like SHEENTYA for a blogger name!! love it love it love it.
Thus far my "naobasheenya" blogspot has NO info...but we'll see what transpires in 2011. Maybe I will get my great writer Sugar Daddy "Deros the Sultan of Seduction" to do the write ups for me. I really need to learn to do paypal as well. Slap your man's butt on behalf of 'my man'. xo

Ach die Liebe.
Oh!!! I missed it! I hope there will be more to come! Looking great, Joyce!
Waaaaa! I kept checking and nothing. Not a sign of Joyce and then... I missed out on some great bags here.
Please more bags
Hi Joyce! I'll take the last bag #2!!
Hey Joyce, Just wanted to give you a heads up that the color of #4 is completely different in the picture than in person. Not a huge deal, just wanted to make sure you know in case the color is different on any other ones.
Thanks for sending my bags with Jenni!
The colour difference is likely due to your monitor?
On my photos, the bag looks pretty much the same, although photographs tend to change the look of things by virtue of not being three dimensional.
I've had people say "I don't like pink" when the bag is actually brown...
