Haute Handbags

It's official.
I am a cover girl!
Yep, that's me!
Do you know how excited I am?
Everyday I've been running to the mailbox to see if the magazine had arrived.
The postman was thinking I was really interested in him!
When it finally arrived, Janet my encourager was over so I had someone to share my excitement with.
I'm not sure she totally understood my need for deep breathing though.
Here are a few others.
I stole a pair of Material Girl's jeans that were hanging in her closet.
The ones on the floor she keeps inventory of. When they're hanging in the closet she has no idea she even owns them!
Hubbie tattooed this pair up and I stitched them together.
The waistband for the strap I had to steal out of my own closet. That way it can be worn around the waist or pivot and be worn over the shoulder.
If the waist had been cut from Material Girl's pants,
it would have only fit as a wristband!

Thank you, Amanda Belle Nolan, Jenny Doh and Somerset Studio!
I am one happy Cover Girl!

Oh my gosh! Congratulations! What an accomplishment, no wonder you needed a few deep breaths.
I had to laugh at the waistband rationale, too funny. Just love the jeans purses.

Terisa I am going to blog about you tonight! Check it out tomorrow if you get a second! I went to Copperfield's to get the magazine and they were all too clueless,like huh? which is ridiculous since I have bought it there before! I will keep searching and I seriously want it autographed! I am sooooo happy for you but not surprised it all!
