And the award for random holiday in the month of june goes to….

National Lobster Day !!

(Which is today by the way.)

Today is National Lobster Day! Did you know that lobster was once considered peasant food? In the 1800s, lobsters were incredibly plentiful and New Englanders could simply walk down the beach and capture them during low tide. Many servants lived off of lobster during this time period. In fact, one Massachusetts community had to pass a law that limited how often you could serve lobster to your servants. It was a modest three times a week!

Today, lobster is considered a luxurious delicacy all over the world. In the state of Maine alone, lobster fishing is a $1 billion industry. There are many ways to enjoy lobster, but the most popular cooking methods are boiling, baking, steaming, and grilling.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t eat anything with a face still on it… just… no.

Also, today is National Smile Power Day and Nature Photography Day and National Flip Flop Day.

So I’m gonna put on my flip flops, smile, go take some nature photos and think about dancing lobsters (because why not)

How you celebrate is up to you. 🙂

Blessed be

And since I have a dress like this:

I figured why not make a purse that fits the style?

So I got bored and  drew a pattern…
Image (forgive bad drawing)

But that didn’t work because I didn’t have markers to color in the colors that I wanted… so I went to paint!

and found some inspiration! 🙂

Then I found the perfect fabrics in my bag of scraps.

and i kidnapped a white zipper from the huge box of zippers in the theatre department at school
Image
(had to shorten it a bit)

Got all the detail pieces cut out and sewed onImage
(sorry the back ground is my boyfriends futon.)

Made a handle out of some awesome black denim fabric.
