Spring tote for a girlfriend I’m meeting for the first time this morning. Amy’s long commented on my blog and once upon a time gifted me the most generous thing a “stranger” has ever sent. She’s been an exceptionally kind voice over the years she knew I needed the encouragement. I am so looking forward to seeing her today for yoga and coffee. (And returning a bit of the bag love.)

  7. So fun! I too have been thrifting my craft supplies. It makes the whole process a treasure hunt + craft project! 🙂 Garage sales too. Although I’m starting to end up with too many supplies (for so little $$$!) and no time to do anything with them!!
