Looked at phones today, Ron may get a smart phone, but I'm getting a dumb phone. I do not like talking on the phone, and I can't see paying more for a phone to access the internet than I pay for cable internet for the house. Especially since I won't use it much at all.... so a dumb flip phone for me.

Used fabric paint pens to paint on my Cheap Joe's Workshopper tote bag.. the paint actually bleeds when wet just like watercolor. Now that I know that I may be able to get some interesting effects.


  1. Can't wait to see your tote bag experiments! I'm sitting here thinking of all the possibilities. I just bought some fabric medium for mixing with acrylics...thinking about putting some designs on my stack of old denim. As for phones, I had a dumb phone for a long time, but when my sister suggested I try a smart one since internet was already on her plan, I did. I love it, and I use it much more than my laptop because I can carry it around with, maybe that's not such a good thing after all, lol

  2. Love the puppy sketch! I too look forward to what you come up with on the fabric techniques. I've been wanting to try them, but haven't made time for it.

  3. Angie, I spend my work day on a computer... if I carried one around with me, the boss might expect me to actually work 24/7 and that is NOT going to happen. The people I see out with their phone in their hand, they can't put it in a pocket or purse, they HOLD it, like smokers used to hold their cigarettes... I think it is sad... very sad.

  4. Love your sketch of the puppy! And your fabric markers turned out great.

    I'm with you on the phone thing but I think we are becoming the minority.
