Unproductive day

I really hate days when I really want to get things done and it seems I just dont. Today was one of those days. I had the car so I went to run errands and nothing was going my way and by the time I got home I was too tired to do a thing in studio. Well Im getting to bed early (yes as I write this its 1;16 am and that would be early for me) But I want to keep at least one thing rolling and that is today is the 4th day in a row I've blogged!! Yipee!! I guess I dont have to blog everyday. Especially with so much on my plate, but I am getting myself in the habit and I guess they say it takes like 21 days to make something a habit so only 17 more days to go! :)

Here is a really easy project that I made last night in less than 10 minutes:















It was an oval placemat, and while most would have thrown it out due to looking a bit aged, I saw the vintage charm of it. (of course) I added a big vintage button and instant clutch! Simply fold in half, then sew up the sides. Dont catch the top part in the seam! You cant see but it is folded over and opens out to make the purse wider at the top. I hope that makes sense. It was hard to get a shot of that.

I also picked up some vintage postcards that I must share with you. They are of New York and have the twin towers on them. I think they are early 90's. I just felt a sense of americana when I found them and bought them all to use on postcrossing. See more in my flickr photostream.
