It's time for another Swatchee Project: an organized purse.
I carry a large purse. I have to be on the ready for the need of coiffed curls on girls or bandaged baby boo-boos. It's what a good mom does, right? Thing is, I can never seem to find what I need without an embarassing search through my purse. [Picture me, standing at the checkout with one child climbing out of the cart, another collecting a handful of candy that is strategically placed at her eye-level, one weighing herself on the giant scale down the walkway, another hitting me over and over in the thigh with the handicap pull-out counter, another one trying to sign the electonic pad with a real pen while I mumble that you'd think with everything I have in this black-hole of a purse I'd have my wallet.] Here is my new system. Simple double drawstring bags with a logo of the contents. Most of them are self-explanitory, but let me introduce you to one of my favorites. A while back I mentioned my traveling project bag. I have a couple of fears. ONE that I'll be somewhere I can't find food. TWO that I'll be stranded with lots of time on my hands and no project to fill them. To take care of my productiveless fear, I carry with me a small project. Usually it's a beading project. It's amazing what a few minutes here and there can produce. Another result is I am building a supply of these beaded bracelets that take hours to make. Want one?
