Sending Snail Mail & "What's in My Bag"


I'm afraid it's going to be a long day...NOT a bad day--just a looong day.

Anyway, I stayed up a tad bit later than usual the other night because I really wanted to work on some post cards. I make super cheap & cheesy-but colorful & fun postcards that I love to send to my sister, mom & friends. I haven't made in such a long time so I was super stoked when I finished this one. My sister Candace lives in Palm Springs now and although we only live about 35-40 mins away...we are always working and our sched's conflict so much that we hardly get to see each other. And gas is expensive, lol...I live on a mountain compared to where she lives in the lower desert. Gas is a significant expense :(
I just use magazine clippings, stickers, and stamps--sometimes ribbon for these. Maybe one of these days I'll get some of them printed so they look neater and won't run the risk of falling apart in the mail. Until then--I use packing tape to seal the suckers up!

What's in My Bag
This game is being played all over the place and I haven't necessarily been tagged--but I so wanted to play! Here goes--and please dont' judge, lol. I seriously need a bigger purse.
Left to Right
1. Change purse I bought in San Diego, 2. Change purse I bought at Claire's that contains work keys & flash drives, 3. Handy hair brush-gifted, 4. Brighton compact mirror-gifted, 5. Mary Kay lip gloss, 6. Arbonne chapstick, 7. Bath & body works lip gloss in lemon/pomegranate, 8. Bath & body works hand sanitizer in vanilla/blue raspberry? Or cotton candy?-gifted, 9. pen & pencil, 10. car keys among many others (I have no idea what some of them are), 11. Mittens, 12. Calendar that I collaged, 13. my really old Telie, 14. Hurley wallet-gifted, 15. blog journal that my sis collaged for me,& 16. finally: Bubble Gum.   
This little baby contains my life...not really--but I'm completely lost without it!
What it contains...
Grocery lists & my book list

There you have it. That's what's in my lil' bag. I love these purses by the way--so funky and cultural, not to mention cheap. My mother in law gave me this one along with two others. She got them a few years back when she went a mission/volunteer trip with her church to Ecuador. LOVE them! I found another one at a swap meet in Fontana but I have no idea where it is.

So if you are reading this post...please continue the "in my bag" game...it's fun!

Sometimes days that are jam packed with activities are the best! I always feel like I got plenty of things accomplished when my day is long. LOVE the rabbit on your card :-) xoxo
