Remodeling and Creativity

I know, I haven't posted in a while. Sorry about that.  We're in the middle of renovating wood floors and repainting and new wood work and the house is a mess and dh is very busy work wise so hasn't gotten much done around here and...........you get the picture ;)

I have been playing around with designing my own handbags.  I took an informal poll of friends online asking them what they liked best in a purse.  Wow, talk about a lot of differences!  My first attempt is at a hobo-style bag with an adjustable shoulder strap.  I need a buckle to finish so I can't post a pic yet.  Oh, and it needs lined, too.  One friend suggested I also make a coordinating cell phone holder (I made myself one and she loved it, wants one of her own). 

Noelle has also been busy crafting.  We just happen to live near train tracks so she's been making flattened penny earrings.  She loves to make jewelry and her friends want a pair.  Some have requested necklaces since their ears aren't pierced.

Her and I are tossing around the idea of renting a table at the local craft fair for Christmas.  You see, I'm still saving for that netbook I mentioned a while back.
