I love this orYANY purse!


I found (or recovered - teehee) this purse for $12 at the local Goodwill Industries.  I loved it for it's fun colors inside and out (inside it's a lime green, outside is a bright aqua).  It's leather and has a bunch of wonderful details including a chain and clasp.  It has multiple pockets inside (which I adore!), and has 2 handles plus a shoulder-strap.  It's big enough to hold all of my stuff (which I will admit, is a lot!), but not too big (like hobo bags).

I looked inside and found out that it is an "OrYANY" purse - which I admit, I have never heard of.  After doing a bit of research, it appears that the brand OrYANY is a very nice brand which is carried at nicer retail shops (for example Nordstroms).  Is this purse an original? I don't know.. but based on the quality of the leather and the high number of quality details, I believe it is. 

I just love it when I find such a great bargain!!!   My daughter thinks I should post the purse on E-bay and "make some moolah".  Personally, I just love having and using it!  It's perfect for my needs and I get a lot of compliments whenever I use it.

My thanks to whomever donated the purse to Goodwill!!  I LOVE my new purse!

Postcards for people who are moving (repost from my old blog Giftbaskets4fun)




Just finished making 2 new sets of "We've Moved" Postcardsn (available in sets of 8 for $8.00)  and posting them at http://giftbaskets4fun.etsy.com.



I love making these postcards.  Not only do I get to use my rubber stamps and inks, I also get to break out the heat-gun and use my embossing powders, and my deckle scissors too! 



I originally started making them for a friend who's a realator and wanted to give them to her client who had just bought a house.   I think they're a lot nicer than the postcards available at the Post Office!
