Every time I do a swap, I hit some sort of design bump and think “man, I’ve gotta stop doing swaps.” Then I finish my item and I start seeing what everyone else is doing, and the mailing starts and I get so excited! And then I want to do it all over again. 🙂
This is no exception! When Lee @ maychappell posted this bag to the flickr group, I immediately thought “OMG, That’s for me!!” But then somewhere along the way I convinced myself it wasn’t (mostly because I totally forgot what I put down in my initial questionnaire.) But when the package came and it had her name on it, I was super excited, because I knew what was in it!!
Anyone who knows me in real life knows that I wear a lot of black and blue. So right off the bat, this thing is going to match 95% of my wardrobe! Then there’s the low volume, the chevrons, the pop of saturated color (love!! the pearl bracelets!) Then Lee went even further and added touches like a padded pocket for my laptop (which I carry around all the time) and a zippy pouch for the cord!
Then, as if that weren’t enough, she also included Block Party, which has been on my Amazon wish list since the book came out. Which makes me wonder if she actually stalked me THAT much or if it was just a really awesome coincidence.
I’m so pleased with everything, thank you Lee!
Now where do I sign up for round 3? 😀
