Show & Tell Friday!


Hi, everyone! :) I'm trying to participate in Kelli Winn's "Show & Tell Fridays", and today was a BIT crazy - but I wanted to share this with you, anyway. :)
Have you ever heard of Namibia???? I hadn't, until I joined an online stamping list for people who also like teddy bears. Lucille is on my list, and she was my secret bear pal for Christmas this year. She sent me this beautiful bag, FULL of fun stamping and scrapping materials; the graphics are different on the other side.
Africa keeps playing a part in my life! :) My aunt and uncle were missionaries in Africa, and I currently have a cousin and her family there as missionaries. It's a BIG continent; I hope you'll click on the link - here it is again :D - to go find out about this country.
Anyway. I will treasure this tote bag; it's got a place of honor in my tote bag stash, waiting for the right thing to carry in it. :D And you're LITERALLY the first people to see it; no one in my household has, yet! :D

One of my daughters is Ethiopian by birth, so we have a special love for Africa round these here parts, lol.
That is a beautiful bag!

This is a special post. It brought back sweet memories. I love Namibia. I Spend many weeks there as a missionary amongst the San people, sitting under the starry heavens with them and love the silence of the desert! (I am originally from South Africa)
