Friday Flower Fix & I'm outta here for the weekend

Happy FRIDAY!!!

Oh my goodness, it's already 20 minutes to 3pm and I'm JUST now getting to my post. Where did the day go? Well, in a nutshell, this is what I've been up to today:
took Jayla to school, took a quick nap until 8:45am :-), checked my email, took my MIL for a 10am Dr. appt., dropped MIL back off at home at 11am (LOVE those quick Dr. visits), stopped at Chick Fil A, made a U-turn/went BACK to CFA (they forgot to give me my fries), went to Archivers for flowers...oh gimme a break, it was a scrapbook emergency!! :-D (ran into Colleen while I was there), went to Target to exchange some sweatpants for the hubby, went to Publix to grab a few items for my MIL, brought the items home, checked/replied to emails, picked Jayla up from school and NOW...I'm home updating my blog. WHEW!!!
I forgot to add that, after I finish with this, I've gotta finish packing. Yep, they finally put me out! :-) Nah, just kidding. We're heading to Fayetteville, Ga for the Kohl's soccer tournament .
ARGH...I'd better hurry...I act like I don't have anything else to do. But before I go, I want to show you something. It seems that nowadays, everyone (blogger) has more than one hobby that they enjoy. Some of you knit, some sew, some make cards/scrapbook, etc. So I thought it was time I share something that I've been working on lately. I've been making/decorating canvas totebags. Here's two of my own that I've done. I'm still kinda new at this craft. But I'm really enjoying it. And I must say, the part that I'm enjoying the best is...I've actually been HAND sewing zippers into these bags, I don't like for my bags/purses to hang open (didn't take a picture of the zippers, so you'll have to trust me). I'm actually thinking about making these as teachers gifts for Christmas too. That's a good idea, right?
Anyhoo, these are the only 2 I've done thus far. I bought a red bag yesterday and I can't wait to decorate that one. I'll be sure to share that with you once I'm done.
Ok, now it's time for your Friday Flower guys are so patient :-)...I just love that about you.
You know how I love Tulips. So I thought these were beautiful to end the week with.
I'm not sure if I'm gonna be able to update over the weekend. But if I am, I'll keep you posted on our standings in the tournament. Anyway, hope ya'll have a groovy weekend. I'll be talking to you soon. And don't forget...Be Inspired...I AM!!!

By the way, you should show before and after pictures of those bags, You really do an incredible job with the detail.

Hey! On my screen, one of the pix of your bag was partially under the pic of the tulips (gorgeous, BTW), and I though I'd see about moving one of them to a visable place, and guess what???? The pix of the bags enlarged!!! Now the ones of the girls in the previous post still won't do it, but somehow these two snaps enlarged for me?!?!?!? Interesting. Crazy-making, but interesting.

good lord you got a lot done...your day must have really flown by and I love how much you do for your mil I think that's really sweet...and i hope she appreciates it.

I love your new hobby...I love the second one the best. I've been making cards but none worth of sharing!!! LOL

I'd love to run into someone I know only in blog world...I did meet Staci last friday at a crop and she's a really nice person.
