Tote-ally fun totes!!!



As I mentioned yesterday, the arts & crafts project for our annual 'female bonding weekend' is going to be a decorated tote bag. While I could let this be a free-for-all, and let everyone just make their own thing, this group (with only a couple of exceptions), is not very artsy-craftsy, so I'm being a control-freak and making up kits. I will allow for some flexibility, but not too much!! Here are the kits I've done so far (I have to make a dozen.) The items are not yet attached to the totes, but I've photographed some suggested placements for those in our group who lack imagination or who've had too many Bloody Marthas (recipe to follow in a later blog). I think these bags would look great painted, too, but our weekend is so packed with activities that our craft project really has to be quick & easy...




Since this is the 10-day countdown to bonding weekend, I am going to try to post a little something on the topic everyday. Tomorrow I may feature pages from my bonding journal, or the recipe for a Bloody Martha, the official beverage of Female Bonding Weekend. - stay tuned!!
