Neeeeeemooooooooo!!!!!!

it's finally happened. caleb has watched Finding Nemo every single day for the past week. since we are going to Hawaii in two days i put him down for a really late nap, i want him to be somewhat used to the 6 hour time difference. i let him watch Nemo and when it was finished he said "the end. (5 second pause) i want to watch nemo."

on a completely different note. i thought you guys might like to drool at all the really cool bag handles at mjtrim.com. some are pretty expensive, but they sure are inspiring. i like the idea of designing a bag around spectacular handles.

maybe we should start a tote-along. everyone make a tote. there's a tutorial at tall poppy, there's a tutorial at super eggplant (http://www.supereggplant.com/archives/000216.html) there are several totes at craft apple. where else can we find tote tutorials?

hey! johanna jumped into the "i've checked this blog at least 100 times" dot on the map. i don't know about you guys but i think i check it about every 30 minutes.

Marie said...

haha! yeah me too! i feel like i check for new post and comments 100 times a day!

about the tote-along. you guys are actually making me want to sew. i just ordered a portfolio from franklin covey that is very similar to one of craft apple's patterns. i like my franklin covey, but it would be really fun to make one at some point in really funky material. oh, but about the tote. maybe i will sew one too, but more likely is that i would knit something similar to what you guys would sew. i've been thinking that i could use a little black bag. you guys could give me tips on lining it.

by the way, we got an offer on our house today!!! for asking price (after we lowered it though) and we are helping them with closing costs of $12,000, which is about normal around here right now. i'm so relieved we can just move and not pay rent *and* a mortgage.

Okay, so I'm embarassed that I check so much - especially if I've posted something. I check and check to see if anyone has posted a comment - it has become a compulsion for me!! I didn't know I had my own dot?!

I am all for a tote making thing - I actually have fabric and a pattern I have been wanting to use on it.

Oh, I forgot - the Nemo thing. For my boys it is Car. And that is a really, REALLY long movie...Sometimes I think that if I hear "Ka-chow!" one more time, I will scream. Oh, or if I hear my SON say he is "Sally"...it causes real issues.

Jo said...

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!! we've done nemo, lately it's been over the hedge but currently it's the prince of egypt.

i figured you'd knit something marie. i know i've come across some cool knitted totes on other crafty blogs. i'll look around.

i, joanna renee mcpherson, do solemnly swear that i will not purchase any new fabric for the making of this tote. i cannot promise not to purchase any new hardware for the tote though, sorry.

Jo said...

ok, i admit, i was awake for an hour in the middle of the night thinking about what fabric i would use for the tote.

Jo said...

i KNEW i had seen a blog called "tote-along". http://tote-along.blogspot.com/

How do you find these blogs? I found out the hard way that it is dangerous to just click on the "view next blog" button. These blogs are apparently not regulated in any way...porn apparently not a problem...

It cracks me up that you were awake thinking about the tote fabric!! I do that all the time! But last night I slept like a baby.

Meagan said...

Yeah me too... like a baby that cries a lot! hehe... We have always had problems with sleeping through the night.

I'm in on the tote thing. I have a pattern an material ready to go.
