    come on yall, lets do it, try something different. I'm going to try that zentangle thing. It facinates me! It reminds me of my though process on paper when I'm trying to create something and I do "Hold Dear", my freedom to create.

    Have you seen the artist that makes images with buttons, she mounts them on plywood and makes portraits? They look real.

    So..we make what WE like and 'Hold Dear'? We'll send that to whoever partner we get?

    the size is just an approximate, I just don't want someone getting a tiny one, that has sent a big one, so use your judgement.

    The tote will represent what the creator "holds dear."
