  1. That is what the best crafting is all about - making the things that are necessary and making them pretty.

  2. ha ha, i have two of those, which i did not make, but some crafter did from a craft fair i went to. i never thought i would have needed one, but aren't they perfect!

  3. Love it, Carolyn! I wish I had a broom closet for bags to fall out of so I could make one, but I use my main hall closet to hold my broom and duster.
