my son has a question on the bags. He learned to make this really simply woven bags (really good for not much yet that I can see... but he thinks their fun...) and I am wondering if they'd be too childish to use?? Their about the size of a small cell phone... Though really we haven't tried to carry one in it (I don't have one) suppose I should try it with the ipod. LOL

Arlene - what kind of yarn are you looking for? I'm going to be cleaning out my stash soon and would be happy to send something to you if I have the right type/color.

Seriously - any knitters/crochet people out there? If you interested, I'm sure I have enough for an entire bag. I'll send it to you and you make the bag to send back.

Send me a message and let me know.
Kelli

Default hard to believe it

Hard to believe that Art in the Bag is coming up in next month! The bags and beads are starting to arrive. We've even received beeds from as far away as SWEDEN! They are gorgeous. We're hoping to get some pictures of them up on our blog soon.

Check it out at www.artinthebag.blogspot.com

If you are intersted in making a donation, it is not too late.
