the taylor tote

Meet my new favorite thing; The Taylor Tote. I am headed to Blissdom this week (eeek!). I should be planning what I am going to wear or packing or doing laundry. But instead I prepared by making a tote bag, And I love it.

I wanted black and white stripes, hot pink trim and brown leather… but after a late night JoAnn’s visit that involved all the boys, a toddler meltdown and one throwing up – this is what I came home with (yes one really did throw up at JoAnn’s)

From what I hear, I will need to carry around a lot of stuff. There are 3 classes the first day and 2 on the second day. I’m going to bring my DSLR and I need space for all the i’s- so made an iPad and an iPhone pouch.

I also made extra wide handles, which are a definite must so I can load my bag full of stuff from the handmade market :)

Apparently everyone loves the new tote, including a red wasp who tried to be a part of my photo session.
Random fact- last summer I was attacked my a ball of red wasps that my son was trying to grab, he was un-phased and I couldn’t walk for days. Now I call them tracker jackers.

Speaking of packing, if you have been to a blog conference pretty please give me some tips!! What does everyone wear on the dress up night? How fancy do people get for the classes? And what do I need to bring besides the “regular stuff”? And if you are going to Blissdom in Dallas this week then leave your info!!
