Serendipity? or just good sense?

I am so in love with the pouch I made for the set of just came together so if I had it all planned! Ha!

It is so interesting to me, how the paint colors (pallette) as well as the images I chose for the blocks (last November) seem so compatable in color and style with this fabric from Anna Maria Horner (from her newest 09 collection in a random bag of scraps that just arrived in the mail!) as well as how nicely the double-sided ribbon that I bought last spring "matches", not to mention how my card/tag that I have been using for 2 years now seems to 'tie' it all together.

Am I crazy? Or do you see what I mean? I am a Sag, (can barely plan anything, or is that just me?) I can't imagine my Virgo friends leaving so much to chance...but I am SO pleased with the result!
So, is the lesson to just always buy what catches your fancy and eventually it'll all make sense?
I try to let the stores 'store' it for me till I need it, but this, this speaks to my squirrel-self...(hate when that happens, really)...

It's on it's way to Australia now, hope the new owner likes it as much as I do!

About Me

My photo
Mamazakka is Mommy blogger Autumn Sousanis; also-known-as Autumn Dunbar; and also-known-as "Mama" to six little ones, ages 9, 7.5, 5, 3.5 2 and a 3 month old! :) Busy,yes. A graduate of C.C.S. (Center for Creative Studies, School of Art and Design in Detroit) with my bachelor's degree in Fine Arts, I have finally found my calling as 'Mamazakka', maker of everything and anything that might improve your home, life and outlook. :) It's my goal to create things that truly meet Wikipedia's definition for 'zakka'; (here's an excerpt)..."cute, corny, kitschy is not enough. To qualify, a product must be attractive, sensitive and laden with subtext." Oh yeah! You betcha! Well, that's my goal, anyhow! I'm also known as an over-user of exclamation marks(!) and parentheses (can't help it) though I do try to keep my smileys to a minimum :)
