what do you get when you cross a handful of neglect with insomnia...

two more bags....for the amy butler sew inspiring contest. The deadline is Friday. I have decided to put the sewing machine away, clean my house, feed my kids, and just enter a stinking bag already. I have overthought this for sure. Keep it simple, right? So here it is, I've decided not to use the one I posted earlier, I think the two I made this week are better options. However...

I NEED HELP!!!

Really, my indecisiveness has kicked my flat rear. I can't decide which one to enter. Remember, um, hello, $2000 sewing machine. No pressure. You can check out the pretty serious competition on the flickr page. There are some goodies there. Nervous. Yes. I am going to tweak these photos in picnik so they look better, and I'm trying to figure out how to put four pictures into one...so I only have to post two photos. ?? Deep down I feel like I don't stand a chance. But I've got to try.

So here they are.

Pink Lotus




Amy Butler is casual, flea market, vintage, modern, yet functional. SHE has to like it. It's got to be something she will look at and say, "Oh, I love that!" I'm not confident I have that. I have one more day to go a different direction, if I need to. I need pure honesty. I'll share the machine.

So glad to not be the only neglectful mother! Your bags totally kill my blog posts though.

Of course...you talented thing.

I like the 2nd one...now, I can't remember the name because I have been commenting too long.

The 2nd one for sure.

Pink lotus...that's it.

And, just in case I offended you,I really don't think you are neglectful. I know you can stay up all night and do that.

I, on the other hand, well, let's just say that you know a lack of sleep is not a good thing for me...so I am just truly neglectful sometimes...not too much, just enough to raise them to be independent!

They are georgous. What skill. If you enter the second one you could send me the first one. I love that green fabric and the little purse to stash in there.
