The Happy Hour Tote got a slick second coat today. And at the suggestion of the bf and my sister, I repaired the Electric Palms Tote by painting the handles black up to the zipper line. On a completely random note, yesterday I was watching the Science channel and learned that the red dye used in food coloring and makeup comes from crushed insects (I don't regularly watch the Science channel, but the bf had turned it on, and even though he fell asleep I was too far into the painting zone to change it). At first I thought, how gross. But then I thought, all the stuff we humans make has to come from somewhere. So maybe it's not gross so much as resourceful. I'll leave you with that.
