Remember the old Dunkin Donuts man that was always shuffling around early in the morning before the sun came up mumbling “gotta make the donuts”? I have for the last few months felt that very same way about these totes. They are not hard to make at all and not time consuming either, but I have had to make them…and make them…and make them!

I put them at 2 consigment stores Kim’s and Torman. At Torman I cannot keep them there. People are buying them 2, 3, up to 6 or 7 at a time. I come home from work nightly and make 5 of them. I finally made 30 to take to the Tomato Festival and am finally taking a bit of a tote bag break.

I tend to get bored if I don’t have variety in my crafting. I make also these flower brooches:


and these button pushpins which I got the inspiration from on Emily’s Black Apple site:


I also make some journals covering composition books and notebooks of various sizes with scrapbook paper. I get inspired by reading craft blogs and reading craft magazines. I have so many projects on my to try list!
