I was walking the floor of Memory Trends in September with my dear friend Angie Pedersen when I noticed that she was sporting the cutest little purse. The purse was a work of art--truly! It was covered with pictures and sayings and scrapbook paper. Angie explained to me that there was this great company called "Pursue Your Art" that sells the purses (they are clear plastic purses, with pockets to slip the photos in) with templates that you basically scrap to make up the walls of the purse. It quickly creates your very own personalized purse. I LOVE IT!
I knew I needed to show this great product off in some fashion, so, I e-mailed the company and the next thing I knew, I was "pursuing my art"! This was the ultimate hybrid activity for me. I had so much fun creating the purse and it is going to make the most wonderful holiday gift for my mother. I am calling this project "GRANDMA'S BRAG BAG." (For very obvious reasons!) I was able to personalize the purse with a favorite digital set called "Lucky" by Heather Ann Melzer. I also had some black and white prints made of my boys at Shutterfly that went perfectly with the beautiful green kit.
Here it is. Hope you get some great holiday inspiration and I really hope you can "Pursue Your Art" sometime soon as well!.
