Purses and Papaya's

I thought if I am going to sell purses I might as well make my self some to show off my wares.
I often get asked where did you get your purse where did you get your shoes etc. So now i can say I make these purses. Now I just need to get business cards.


This purse is made from my favorite color combo, red, white and black. I really like how it turned out but I think if I make this style again I will curve the bottom.When I was little and lived in Hawaii I use to eat Papayas all the time, I really loved them.
Well last night I was eating some dehydrated papaya before I Went to bed. I was a little itchy and noticed a few hives on my legs , I thought it was no big deal and went to sleep. I Woke up in a start from a dream were some one was smothering me with a pillow. I was gasping for air and hardly getting any into my lungs, my chest felt very heavy and when I touched it I realised there where hives all over it. I then realized I was having a sever allergic reaction my throat kept swelling and it was getting harder to breath I ran into the bathroom and chugged down some of Ben's benydrill. My breathing slowly started to get better and I was soon breathing normal. I was kinda scared to go back to sleep but soon the effects of the benydrill knocked me out. I woke up wondering what the heck caused the attack. I then realised I had not eaten papaya since I was younger. So I ate a piece just to see what would happen, as soon as I ate some my tongue began to swell and my throat started to close. I was shocked at just how fasted it affected me this time. I took more benydrill and was fine. I cant believe how something that never effected me as a child could as an adult.

I find something has changed after every birth. One Asthma, hair falling out, new allergies and so on. So sorry that you can't have something you love. I can't have bananas.

I love the purse and agree about curving the bottom. Beautiful.

That has happened to my Mother in law a few times. Scary.
When I read your title I thought you were introducing the name of your etsy shop. Purses and Papaya. I thought, "Oh how cute"! I haven't been able to read blogs for a week or so and now I see that I have 5 of your posts to catch up on!

Oh how scary!!! My son has a nut allergy, it has been so long since he has eaten anything that I dont know how quickly it would come on if he did eat something. You had better get yourself an epi pen just in case!
By the way, I will be doing my 100th post sometime this week and there is a giveaway involved! Keep watch.

Weren't you allergic to certain fruits while pregnant? That would freak me out waking up like that. I love the purse. You make sure fun things.

Wow! Glad you were able to dream yourself awake. :] You know, I didn't realize I was allergic to bananas until a couple monts ago when my baby sister told me she is allergic to them and how they affect her and that is exactly what happens to me when I eat them. :\ Wow!

Sweet purse! :)
