Good Times & a Mini Note Purse . . .

Hi all!  I'm back . . . at least for now.  :)  I've been so bad about posting and sharing these days, the mojo's left me and hasn't come back.  I did craft a little - - - it's taking me a course of days to finish one thing.  I can't seem to stay on track.  Hopefully, I'll be back to my "normal" self.

A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity of crafting, talking-story, eating, and laughing with some amazing women at Joy U.'s house.  I received some beautiful RAKS, but it totally slipped my mind in taking pictures of them.  {You see how "abnormal" I've been?}  However, I was able to muster up some energy and make a Mini Note Purse here at home. 


I did a Make 'N Take of this purse with these ladies!  If you want the tutorial, click {HERE}.  I also wanted to show you a mini, mini purse that Joy U. made for me.  She used a 9x9 piece of CS where my purse took a 12x12.  She's so clever in manipulating the measurements & Joy added a sectional in the middle of the purse!  Here's the comparison of the purses in the 2 sizes.


I'll be back tomorrow for sure . . . and I have some other projects I'll be sharing.  Yes, I finally completed some projects that has been laying around on my workspace.  I totally needed to finish them so I can mail them out!  :) Ta-ta for now!
