    Kind of tongue twister. :rolleyes1

    I just adore this fabric too! And I love that the strap is made of the striped fabric... I did this with all of the mini-bags... Made the straps a different fabric... It just makes it fun.

    Yup... Had to do a little one too, to coordinate with the big one. I sure hope that someone does a coordinating mother/daughter theme with one of these mini-bags, since all of them coordinat with bigger versions.

    I think the black dress looks fabulous! They do look very comfy but I don't think they would work for me cause I'm a little too tall. I think they would be shorter on me than I am comfortable with.

    I love the mini bags! I can't remember if you posted the dimensions for those? Just curious as to how big they are. Also, how long is the strap? Is it over the shoulder like the bigger bags? I tend to carry a much smaller bag when I'm not at Disney so one of those might be perfect. :thumbsup2

    Crossing my fingers that Alli gets the job.
    Sounds like you're going to have a hectic weekend. I hope you get to enjoy some time with your dad even if you can't stay over night.

    The dress looks really good on you.

    And of course all the bags you've made looks amazing. I can't wait to see the auction. I hope the auction goes well even if you're not at home when it ends.

    Hi D,

    I tried to post yesterday on the Ipad but I don't think it went through :sad2:
    I love the new auction bags, so much work!! Love the Minnie cupcake! I know your auction will do really well!

    Have a great weekend and enjoy your visit with your dad!

    If I win the lotto, I am bidding on all of them...they are spectacular.

    Thanks for asking up above how I am doing. I'm okay and so is Mark. We are taking it one day at a time and have a lawyer looking at it for us.

    I know how you feel about the kids and working. Andy got a job at 15; Markie didn't get a job until he was in college. Both were heavily involved in sports and during school, as long as the grades were kept up, I let them not work if they didn't want to.

    With all the anticipation, I can't believe that I forgot that today is auction day! Glad I remembered in time! I wish I didn't have to work so I could just stalk the auction all day :) It looks like the auction is off to a pretty good start - we all knew it would be! I wish my girls were old enough for the mini bags, Olaf and cupcake Minnie would be big hits in our house. I also wish you had made an Olaf wallet - I am in love with that interior fabric!

    You are so busy! Enjoy your time with your dad tomorrow. It is so hard to balance your family with your parents - I am in the same boat. With DH and I both traveling for work this month, we are trying to spend down time as a family of 4 but I can't miss out on seeing my parents right now either. It is a tough balancing act.

    Hope Alli gets the job and enjoys it. I so enjoyed working part time when I was in school (I actually didn't work until college). I loved the varied schedule and the working because I wanted to, not because I had bills to pay, like these days. I know you and Josh are super responsible with money, but be sure when Alli has an income you pass all that great advice down. I wish I had banked more of the money I was making when I was younger and started a 401(k) sooner - it would have been nice to have more of a cushion when I got married.

    Love the black dress! You are so pretty! I always stock up on summer dresses at Loft - there sundresses are usually $25 for most of the summer, but at the end of the summer you can get them even cheaper, and they last forever! My office is pretty casual and I can wear them to work with a cardigan so I get great use out of them.

    Off to work for me - after I check your auction one more time. ;)

    I love that there are coordinating bags. Although, if Marissa gets the bag she wants, she won't want to coordinate with Chelsea. The bag I want doesn't have a coordinating bag. Chelsea would love the minnie cupcake mini bag. We will have to see. I laughed out loud when I saw the mini cupcake bag, because I was sure Terri was doing a happy dance. I was so excited that you had done more than just 1 of those mini bags. I love your auctions, even though they exhaust you, but I hate them at the same time, because there are too many that I love. :love:

    Wow! :banana:The more I look at the Auction Bags the more of them I want:love: This is very dangerous for me as I have soooo many nieces who also love Disney:cheer2:

    I remember kicking myself after the last auction on not winning one (I was in a business meeting and got out about 15 minutes after it ended):mad:

    Great job D~:woohoo:

    Love the bags - as always - especially the Halloween one.

    Just kind of skimmed, so I'm probably missing a bunch, but that's always a possibility with all the information here.

    Have a great weekend!

    I love them all.
    The black dress looks really good on you. I looked at that dress but I'm a little too tall which makes the dress too short.

    Just peaked in on your auction and it seems to going quite well! I hope you are happy with the outcome.

    I love that black dress on you. If it turns out to be a little too big, you could just add a fun belt.

    I hope the visit with your Dad went well today. I'm glad you had a chance to get up there. I know it is hard when you can't see him on a regular basis.

    Congrats to Alli for getting the job. Does this mean you'll have to run her in and pick her up all the time? That could get old pretty quickly! But how fun to have your daughter making your coffee! And what do they do with all the leftover sweets??? Maybe they can bring them home. Of course you'll be a good girl and not eat them, but V and Josh would probably appreciate them.

    I have been absent because Emily, Josh, Charlotte and Caroline have been her since Sunday. They leave tomorrow, so things will begin to get back to normal. We so enjoyed our weekend get-away and the time with our family once we got back. Now I need to catch up all over the DIS. Like you, I'm behind on everyone's PTRs and TRs.

    Hope you have a great trip home and get some good sleep tonight so you can get all those awesome auction bags shipped off. You've done a fantastic job on every one of them!

    Sorry all, I do not have time to do replies this morning... But thank you all for liking my last peeks at my auction items.

    So far, I am thrilled with how well it's going. Usually, when I do an auction, I have it set up, so when I have the first bid on each item - then I've reached my goal. Not a monetary goal, but a personal goal. It is always my goal to find a home for everything, and so far, I've been very lucky. It seems most people like something I make. :wizard: Within 2 hours of my auction starting yesterday, I had made my goal of having one bid on each item. That's the exciting part for me. :woohoo:

    Anyways... I must run... I have to be at my dad's at 8am this morning to get him to church on time. I also have to be parked somewhere at 9am, so I can end my auctions... At this point in time, I will have to do that via mobile, because no one else can do it. :eek: Should make it an interesting morning for me.

    I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I will try to do today's replies tomorrow morning. :lovestruc And thank you all so much for your support over the last several weeks, and my crazy work schedule. :thumbsup2

    :grouphug: to all.
