 I've been crafting for many years, and would like to do more as I'm getting older. I've gotten many compliments on my latest endeavor, and wanted to pass it along to you. The picture below is an embellished tote bag I recently made. It's something I really enjoy doing and would love to do more often.

A huge SINKHOLE opened in the middle of a showroom at the National Corvette Museum in Kentucky yesterday, and swallowed EIGHT cars. A spokesman wouldn't say what the total value of the cars was. But just to give you an idea, one of the NEWER models that fell in had a base price of over $103,000 when it came out in 2009.

Seven Healthy Foods That Have More Sugar Than a Chocolate Glazed Donut
1. Fruit-flavored yogurt. One serving has 26 grams of sugar. That's about as much as you get in TWO donuts.

2. Energy bars. If you have the kind with chocolate chips in them, you're having 23 grams of sugar.

3. Orange juice. One cup of OJ has about 20 grams of sugar in it.

4. Applesauce. A typical serving has 16 grams of sugar.

5. Tomato soup. Your average serving has 15 grams of sugar.

6. Dried cranberries. One packet of craisins has 34 grams of sugar. That's more sugar than you have in TWO AND A HALF chocolate glazed donuts.

7. Starbucks Grande Latte. You probably don't think of a PLAIN latte as that bad for you, but it has 17 grams of sugar in it.

Wonder if this is considered "art" its recycling at its best if you ask me......I normally sew Civil War costumes for Movies/ film an reenacters but after having a farm I decided to do something with all the bags. Now I raid all the neighbors farms for their bags. Making them into grocery type carry bags.......they sell for merely 5.00! The bags are carried by Blue Ridge dog training center , Blue Ridge summit PA.
