Today is TADA!

Hello Everyone! I am back after several weeks of computer failure...totally blah! I missed you guys! I missed sharing ideas. I missed posting. But I'm looking on the bright side and crossing my fingers that my computer stays in good shape.

I'm so happy to be back, I brought out some balloons to celebrate!

I owe you a few TADAs! featuring branded bags -- those free carryalls with not-so-subtle corporate logos. Here they are:

A little purse that's quite blah.

Cover the logo with felt and fluffy pompoms...

...Tada! So much more purse-sonality!

A navy blue tote that needs a make-over.

Take away the logo by adding a pocket.

Not just any pocket, but a pocket made for pencils!

Fill the bag with coloring books for toddlers or
a sketch pad & drawing pencils for older kids.

And finally...

A blah lunch bag that tells you where it's from.

Dress it up with some ribbon, and...

Tada! Lunch is cool inside & out!

Hope you are all having a great weekend!

See you Monday!
