So as far as Christmas DIY's go, this one is acceptably anti-horrid (seriously, what is WITH that red & green?? It's just weird.) and most importantly, cheap. Granny Corner approves of cheap. Also jewellery, GC really, really believes in that.

So I need a new handy bag, for the carrying around of my laptop. And I have taken a fancy to one in the style of a "well-known-fashion-house". Of course I'm going to make it myself! Sheesh! But I'll do mine the artworker way: labour intensive custom stencil pattern & embroidery, yay. And that's before I even make the bag!
It's a very simple design and I'm most certainly not the first woman to hanker after one of
these handy bags...

Sounds promising...everything looks better with gold, I've always thought. It's just so shiny. Apologies for the portrait subject content. Yes yes, me again. This one's a present for my Mum's 70th birthday. And if I'm going to do this kind of thing, of course I'm gonna choose the most flattering pictures ever! Sheesh! Read More
