It's beautifully gray and cloudy here today! I hope we get rain. In other news, I got my first thrift store designer bags yesterday. I always see bloggers picking up designer bags for $10-$20, and I never even see designer bags! The first one was an old Brighton organizer for $8. It retailed for $150-$200 new. It has so many pockets you would not believe it. It also has a tiny cell phone holder. Remember, cell phones were humongous, then merely gigantic. After some time, they became so small you could hardly see them. Then they got big again, and flat. I think I'll put lip gloss and lipstick in that pocket. That will be convenient, since I use them 50 times a day.
The second was a Liz Claiborne for $3. NOT a Liz & Co bag like you can get at Kohls, an actual Liz designer bag. It has gorgeous, floppy, thick, and soft leather in saddle brown mixed with a straw fabric body. It's perfect for summer.
I also looked at the "designer" bags they had locked up behind glass for $20-$30. Not one of them was a designer bag. They were just hideous, over embellished knock-offs, which clearly dazzled and confused the ARC workers. The thing about real designers is that they actually possess a modicum of restraint. I told the gal that not one of those bags needed to be locked up, as none of them were real. I hope I didn't offend her, but it's true. I guess I should keep my big nose out of it, and let them continue to put the real stuff out on the floor for cheap.

Seize the Birthday challenge. I thought this was their sketch, too, but I can't find it on their site. I know this was a sketch card because I remember that it was a little hard to put together, and I don't love the little banners sticking out on the sides of the focal image. I'll try to figure out where it came from and link it up.

This top card mixes Gina K. Designs Holiday Cheer with some gorgeous old Basic Grey. I can't remember which line, but it's pretty.
Well, I have to run pick up W. He was on a sleep over last night and had a bad night. He texted me at 4:30, and it didn't wake me up, so I feel pretty awful. I hope he's not too traumatized. He's such a homebody. Comes from being raised by old people.
