The Bag Tag

This is the bag tag. Rules are as follows:
1. Post a picture of whatever bag you are car
rying as of late. No, you can't go into your closet and pull out your favorite purse! We want to know what you carried today or the last time you left the house.
2. List how much it cost. And this is not to judge.
This is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, we’d love to hear it.
3. Tag some chicks. And link back to this post so people know why the heck you’re showing everyone your bag.

Ahhh, so this is why I love weekends. :o) I told Carina I'd play this tag because I thought it looked like fun. Course, that was earlier this week, and with how busy it was I just didn't have time to stop to take the photos and think about the post. So, tonight, before I unloaded my camera it popped into my mind, and with a few spare minutes I took the shots.
This is my purse. I don't think there's going to be a huge surprise here, but I made it myself. I've been lugging this thing around since the summer. I originally wanted something other than black, and I didn't see anything in my fabrics that caught my eye, until I spotted some old denim jeans. I took to tearing them apart and piecing this together. It's big, floppy, and all mine. It's horribly un-fashionable, but that's why I love it. It's another portion of the tacky side of me. I love tacky things, they attract my attention. My poor Mr would give anything if I just started carrying a nice, designer bag...LOL. It doubles as a diaper bag sometimes, which is the point of it. I originally made it when I was trekkin all over town during the summer, so I could carry everything for the park, plus my essentials from my purse. I never really got rid of it once the cold weather hit. It can carry my folders (for PTO), and a diaper with the wipes, or a water bottle, and not get overloaded. I had originally intended to toss on some snaps for a closure, but decided against it.Inside of my bag you will always find these three items. My make-up bag (something I got as a free gift w/purchase 5 years ago from an order placed with Aloette), my little catch all (it holds candy for the times when things get a bit snicky in the store for the kids, hair ties, lotion, a small sewing kit, eyeglass repair kit, dental floss, and a few other small items I hate losing at the bottom of a bag), and my wallet (my Mr bought it for me last year). Also, my purse always contains a pack of excel gum, a re-useable bag (don't worry, it comes with it's own tiny pouch so it's not taking up too much space), my keys, and my cell phone. I didn't photograph those cause, well, it's a lot to take a picture of. Just so you know, there's a reason why I carry all of these items, and it's because there's been times where I've actually needed each and every item on a number of occasions while I've been out either with the kids, or by myself.

And with that in mind it's become glaringly obvious just how much I'm like my grandmother. Not that that's a bad thing, but it usually happens that way. It's kind of scary how much like her I am really...

Now, in the next little bit, with the help of my creative spurt, I will be replacing it soon, with something a bit more fashionable in style, but still eye-catching in fabric. I'll letcha know when I'm finished making it ;oD

Oh, and no tags tonight, you play if you like!
