Did I Really Need More Bags?

May 13, 2008

Why, yes, I did and to that end, I completed my second internet swap. This one was soap for reusable bulk buying bags. I’ve actually been belated in posting about it, because they arrived on Friday. I’m so excited to use them. I wanted to make them myself months ago, right after I made my produce bags, but I haven’t been in a sewing mood for awhile. I just don’t actually enjoy it that much, I’ve realized. So, my friend Lisa at Colors Outside the Lines suggested a trade. She sent three of them in various sizes to test out and give my opinion about. They won’t be used until Friday, my regular shopping day. In fact, I was expecting them last Friday morning and anticipated using them. My mail arrived and no package. I was disappointed, but went on with my list making and then my shopping. As I was coming back from our local natural foods store, I saw a mail truck leaving my house. He’d delivered a package! The bags. It was too late for using them that day, but how weird is that? My packages always arrive with the rest of my mail.

Aren’t these bags lovely?

You can get your very own set at her Etsy store, if you think they are as nifty as I do.

    MMM, I just love Etsy! I found it while I was perusing flikr…but what a brilliant idea…I am trying to think of ways to sell some of my things on Etsy, but most of what I do is gardening related…can I sell plants? I will have to do some additional exploring…

    by the way, I added you on my blogroll on my site…just for fun!

    I wonder if you could sell seeds? Do you collect seeds? I don’t know about plants on Etsy, but you can sell those on Ebay.

    Thanks for adding me to your blogroll. It’s still exciting when people do that!
