My very own Steen Ink bag

I made this bag way back in early fall, it took me fooorevver. In fact, it was such a traumatic process that I buried it in the back of my closet and vowed never to look at it again. But last week I got the idea to sew on some lace to it and draw it in at the top (so it didn't look so shapeless). And tada, here it is. I haven't yet sewn on the lace, it is just pinned on here.

I am always being told that I should have one of my own bags on me all the time, as a kind of advertisement, but every time I make one that I love I think I would prefer to sell it and get some money. But I think this bag may just be there perfect size and color for me. hmm.

Things are troubled here, the other night we came home from a friends house at about midnight, I wanted to go check on some laundry in the basement, SO as I descended down the stairs I heard a SpLaSh when I reached the final step. yup, our basement flooded, big time. It was TERRIBLE, me and shane sat for a few hours scooping the water up with anything 'bucket like' we could find, the whole time I am sobbing at how much money it will cost to repair the damage.

In the morning the water had obviously found a way out and drained away, we have the heat up high down there to dry things out and a friend lent us their dehumidifier too. Someone is coming to look at things this week. fingers crossed it is a tiny tiny problem....

Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and
i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam feedback?

If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
I get so much lately it's driving me mad so any support is very much appreciated.
