Market Bag, Facebook and a Giveaway!

So what to start with first? How about the market bag?

Have you heard of "artsy- crafty babe?" Maybe you've seen her link on my side bar. Talk about a talented lady! Recently Rebeka had a sale going on in her Etsy shop and I took advantage of it and bought her market bag pattern. I love the simplicity and the roominess of  the bag! You can fit tons of stuff in it! And it's so much prettier than some of the recusuable/recyclable bags you see being sold in the stores (that I always forget at home or in the car!)

I made one using a Tokidoki-inspired print and added a splash of red with white polka dots for the lining. Here it is:

Market Bag

Lots of room on the inside. Love the splash of red!

Can you say, Christmas presents? Oh yeah.

And maybe one for my Etsy shop.....

And maybe one for a GIVEAWAY?

Perfect timing for a giveaway, don't you think? Especially with the holidays coming up! But another reason is I'm setting up a Facebook page for my Etsy shop - "Happy Hapa." Just jumping on the bandwagon of social networking!
