Lucky Lisa

Today the mail carrier brought me such yummy gifts! 2 fun packages in 1 day (and I’m not even counting NetFlix)  DSCN0095

DSCN0096 I looked at them a lot, and did a little ‘I’m so happy, I think I’m going to explode’ dance.  Then I thought, maybe I should save them, let them rest after their long journey…Then I opened them. 

The first one, from Suze I was expecting.  I saw the bags she makes posted on her blog and have been needing to have my own for over a year.  Finally, I e-mailed her and she agreed to make me my very own Rag Bagz.  I sent her some Frida material that I had no business having, since I can’t sew and Wah-La!

I expected to love it.  But I love it so very much, I think we will get married this June.

DSCN0097 Front. Suze even embroidered an L DSCN0098 Back.  Look at all of the pockets!  No more sifting through junk to find the car keys!  I wish I could have taken a picture of the inside…More pockets, and completely lined with the frida fabric.  She also embroidered  Day of the Dead in Spanish!  Every detail is perfect!  I feel guilty, I don’t think she charged me enough.

DSCN0099 As if I needed anything more, there was more.  A sweet card and beautiful napkins to use for art.  I have been looking for napkins just like this.

Thank you Suze, you really are an angel!

The second package will be bragged about tomorrow, I don’t want the dear little gift to be over-shadowed.

It’s a sweet, sweet Life…
