What’s in My Handbag – Craftaholics Anonymous

This afternoon’s feature is Linda, from Craftaholics Anonymous. I “met” Linda online about two + years ago and then in person a  little over a year ago. She’s a delight and man oh man, those cute boys…

Linda’s site is full of craft tutorials – lots of great seasonal stuff. I am excited to share a few of my favorites, especially a few fun Halloween projects…

1. Fabric Halloween Garland 2. Boo Black Burlap Wreath 3. T-shirt Poms 4. Selvage Fabric Business Cards

Super-fun stuff.

What’s in Your Handbag – Craftaholics Anonymous

Hi there! I’m excited to be here. I am Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous. Yep, I craft. a. lot! So its fun to change things up from writing about crafts to writing a more personal post….like what’s in my handbag!

This is my current bag. Got it on clearance at Kohls. Absolutely love it! Its really not as big as it looks, the chair is actually kind of small. {I stole this chair out of my craft room for this photo shoot}

  • Jessica Simpson clutch purse. Totally love pulling it out of my bag!
  • TOYS! as you can tell, I’m a mom. To 2 small {crazy} boys.
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Lip gloss
  • The pink foil is a smashed hershey’s kiss. I actually don’t like chocolate…..this is a just in case I need a little bribery when I’m out and about with the boys. Nope, I’m not above bribery!
  • Washi tape
  • Fruit snacks, for the kids. and sometimes me!
  • my business card holder
  • HUGE stack of business cards that I collected at the blogging conferences {including Snap!} this year.
  • A bag a peanuts from a Southwest flight to one of the blogging conferences
  • A fork. you just never know when you’re going to need a fork!

  • My keys. I made my keyring wristlet a couple years ago.
  • Downeast catalog. I live on the east coast, so this is the only way I can get my Downeast fix! Love their cute clothes.
  • A pen
  • Brown Bear book. One of our favorites!
  • Costco coupons. We love costco!
  • McD’s coupons. Got these at the Evo blogging conference.
