Lazy day…

We’re having a nice mellow Sunday here. We barbecued after church. Dad and the kids swam for awhile this afternoon. I took some pictures of them splashing. Then I did some photo editing while listening to this (which I read about at Amy’s Humble Musings and at Enjoy the journey.) Wow…thought provoking.

I wanted to show you this adorable little bag made by my 16 year old. She made it from scraps left from cutting a pair of jeans down for shorts. She wove the strap herself, and stitched the word ‘Aloha’ on the front of the bag, and added a couple of beads for button fasteners. Fun when a kid can get an idea and come up with a neat project like this without paying a cent.

  1. That's an awesome purse, and all the more precious for having done it herself!


  3. that's such a great job!

  4. Very creative, quite the fashionista!

  5. I LOVE IT! Tell her great job.

  6. Love the bag—glad you listened to Voddie, wasn't that thought provoking?

    I think I'm going to listen to it again a second time.

  7. I think it would be great for more pastors, youth pastors and parents to listen to that message, Amy. We're blessed to be a part of a church that celebrates children and large families, and a youth program that sees its job as a help to the parents, but so many are as described by the pastor speaking.

    Thanks for sharing the link.

  8. Don't you love it when one of your kids shows a creative streak like this? What a sweet purse and you know she's sooo proud of it. She should be!

    Great purse!

    As for Voddie's sermon, I feel very grateful to be part of a church that still loves and promotes large families. :o)


  10. Very cute. I forwarded your link to Crystal Breeze only to realize she'd already commented!! She's all into the homemade craft things.

  11. OK- I am addicted to purses…its a funny thing about me that people find surprising- because I don't come across that way- but My mom and sister and I all love them- and even have a saying when we are together "gotta getta bag!" So- I loved this post! Could she make me a nice big denim diaper bag??? I found when I came home with the boys we were missing a few things- diaper pail, diaper bag, bottles, diapers…was kind of funny actually- walking around in a daze with a poopy diaper in my hand wondering if I should really put it in the kitchen garbage can…seriously- she could sell those on ebay!

  12. so cute!

  13. You daughter did a great job – very cool!
