Can you believe we're already here? If you've missed any of the previous weeks you can see them all in the "Past Crafts" tab.
The winners of the Forever You giveaway are announced here. There's three of them and one might be you! Go check!
Before we get to the main event I just want to make you guys aware of one quick thing. I received an email the other day from a woman asking for help. Gena wrote me to tell me about her sister Sarah. At age 27 she was diagnosed with stage IV ocular melanoma. As it is unresponsive to chemo or radiation their only option is surgery. She is currently recovering from her most recent surgery and has had to stop working. As cancer has been a big part of my own life through the sickness of many of my family members I know how devastating emotionally and financial it can be. If you would like to give Sarah any support that you can please visit her blog, Love Infinantly Squared.
Ok. Now for the crafts... remember you're voting for the champion of Session 2. This weeks theme is "Wild Card" and it's not anonymous (I think at this point you can tell who's is who's anyway :) ) Polls close Friday at 9 pm MST.
First off I would like to send a big thank you to those followers who voted me on to the finals! It means allot to me! And I also couldn't be competing against a more creative gal!!! It's been a fun, fast, and tough ten weeks!
For my final shebang I decided to create the perfect bag to take with your family swimming! Whether you head to the local pool or out to the beach, you will have enough room for everything! With summer in full swing around my parts of the country and with it around the corner for the rest I thought it would be perfect to pull out bright summer colors and prints.
The top of the bag has two separate sides. They both close and open with draw string tops.
One side is fully lined with waterproof material so once you are done swimming you can toss in your wet clothes, and the rest of your bag will stay nice and dry!
The other side is a dry side. It is filled with pockets that you can slide in your wallet, keys, makeup, or diapers! You name it! It's perfect for your hair supplies and your dry change of clothes for after you swim!
Now onto the bottom. The entire bottom is waterproof, so you won't need to worry where you set your bag! Two of the sides around the bottom have pockets to slide in water bottles! You can never have enough water at the pool! They are also perfect for slipping in sun screen or diving toys, or flip-flops!
On one of the other sides there are three pockets that have flaps on the top. They are perfect for goggles, sun glasses, or spray on tanner!
The final side around the bottom has a large flap that opens completely and closes with Velcro, making it easy for children to get in and out of.
So grab all your swim gear, change of clothes, and load up your bag. Throw it over your shoulder and head out for a fun filled day!
