Today’s giveaway is from BusyBeehive!
Hello and welcome to my little eclectic shop. My interests are wildly varied. I started as a stained glass artist, and quickly became addicted to fabric. I love creating art quilts and being able to incorporate different textures and fibers.I am always up to designing custom wall hangings, maybe your pet or hot rod car. I will do just about anything to keep my customers happy.I love using different textures, fibers and mediums. The most unusual material I use is Dryer Lint. Have’nt you always wanted to do something with all that fiber? I love to recycle when ever I can and use old items in my projects. As they say “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”

This unique purse is for the ultimate book lover or for someone wanting to make a fashion statement.Dare to be different. Great as a conversation piece.The book title is Breathing Lesson by Anne Tyler There is enough room for credit cards, lipstick and a few more smaller items and you are ready to go out on the town. This book purse measures approx. 5 3/4″ X 8 1/2 “, the interior’s fabric is beautiful Sunflowers.There is also a slim pocket. The closure is Glass, Acrylic and Metal beads.The handles are brown shiney patent leather. The books cover was in good condition but the pages were not. So I dont feel bad about taking the book apart and recycling it. This is so much better than ending up at the dump. Please treat this purse the same way you would treat a book. It is not weather or stain proof. If you are looking for a special book to have done, or you have that book, I can create a purse for you in my studio.
