Just a few more days…

Filed under: Morning Musings, stuff to buy — jackie @ 10:21 am

Good morning readers.

I am feeling in the holiday spirit this week before Christmas, so I put up a festive banner for you all. I’m almost finished with my gift shopping. One more item to get for my Mom and a few stocking stuffers and that’s it. I feel like such a slacker as I didn’t have the time this year to hand make any of my gifts but hopefully I can be a bit more prepared next year. Because… you know that I plan on being more {{shudder}} organized in 2008. :)

While I was poking around the website of a local chain store looking for holiday gifts I came across a great deal on a Crumpler Messenger bag. For that person in your life who is a bagaholic…check out the Blue Ridge Mountain Sports Website.

They have two diff. bags on sale for about 30 bucks each. Which is a really great price considering they usually go for three times more. The bag models are the Barney Rustle and the Complete Seed. You have to take the color bag that is available but for the price it really doesn’t matter. You can read more about them on the Crumpler Site. I have been wanting one for a long time but my pocket book hasn’t ever allowed spending a hundred bucks on a bag, though I’ve been tempted once or twice.  

Being the bag wench that I am, I ordered one of each because I wasn’t sure which size I wanted. I figure I can use the larger one for school and the smaller one for everday use.

What’s cool about these bags is that you can purchase a removable photo insert that holds your camera gear so there is no need for an additional camera bag. (Did I actually say I didn’t need a bag?)

More from the non bookbinding front… I am thinking of possibly knitting a few last minute gift items. Probably just a hat  and slippers. Both can be knit up in a few hours of evening. We’ll see. :)

I hope everyone has a great day.

  2. I also knitted some gifts. I made those little shoulder shawls where the point sits at your left elbow. Beautiful wool and a lovely lacy pattern. They take only one or two balls and only 3 or 4 evenings to finish.

    I have a Crumpler bag for my digital camera (which is quite large because it has the big Leica lens). I thought I was getting a bargain at $30 for that.
