If you ask me what I do for a living I will tell you I am a homemaker. Not a stay-at-home mom (unless you count Waylon as a kid!), not a housewife, not unemployed...a homemaker. I make our home run as smoothly as possible. I maintain our garden and animals and I strive to make our lives more sustainable. But this post is not about what I do at home.
Since I do work at home most of the time, I don't have a reason to have fun work supplies...like cool bags to carry your computer or important work documents, or fun office supplies. Well, I guess I do have office supplies...but it's just not the same as having them on your desk displayed in cute containers and such!
I do have a part time job. I work with a local center that provides college-prep support to low-income students. Most of my hours are working from home, but once a week I meet with my students at the center. This is my one chance to "go to work" every week...so I figured I should milk the whole "fun work supplies" angle while I can!
Our weekly sessions at the center start up this week. So for inspiration and to channel my excitement for the upcoming year (my students are Juniors! A big year for college prep!), I decided to make a new bag to carry my notebook and supplies. Even though I get great enjoyment from this job and I consider it lots of fun, I figure going to work is way more fun when you have a bag you look forward to using every week!
This bag is perfect for carrying my notebook and any other paperwork. It has a front pocket big enough for my meter and diabetes supplies I sometimes need access to while working.
I am so proud of this bag (sorry I have to brag a bit because sometimes I surprise myself)!
The bag is made from thrifted corduroy and the liners and appliques are made from scraps from another project!
I am so excited about using this bag! Do you have something, a bag or maybe a fun office gadget that makes you excited about going to work?
