my date of last drink: June 30th, 2012. Date today: December 30th, 2013. So by the end of today I can safely say that I am 18 months sober. For a girl who thought she couldn’t get past 9 days (and couldn’t without help!), to have now learned that reaching out, treats, sleep and tea would be such lifesavers… well for this girl, for me, i’ve been scheming on a treat for myself. to celebrate being sober.
i love the idea of recycling shit, taking the best of something unwanted and turning it into something new (sort of like how we remake our lives once sober). so then i find a guy in germany who takes old leather/motorcycle jackets and turns them into custom bags… holy, you can’t imagine how excited i am.
i asked if he could custom design a bag for me with FUW (fuck u wolfie) on the front … cuz no one will know what FUW means, except me. and you.
Here’s what he came up with:
It’s made form recycled leather jackets, and recycled leather schoolbags, it has pockets for cell phones and stuff. it has a big long strap that i can adjust (39″ to 47″ / 100-120 cm). and it’s big but not too big, and it’s small but not too small. * Dimensions: 10″ H x 13,4″ W x 4,5″ D ( 25 cm x 34 cm x 12 cm).
I did ask if i could custom order a few extras, in case someone else wants one, and given the length of time to create and the complexity of the job (and since it’s a custom order), he said he could do a total of 5 (1 for me + 4).
If you haven’t had a big sober treat yet, if your christmas presents weren’t ideal, or if you’d like to join me welcoming in the new year with a kick-ass fuck you wolfie bag, then here’s the link > https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=4R7LTX9Z864BL * The price is $380 USD / approx. 275 euros. Only 4 available / delivery is 4-8 weeks as he literally has to make the bags from scratch 🙂 * the photo is a mock-up of what he’s going to make … he hasn’t created them yet, so exact stencil lettering (other than the required FUW), etc. may vary slightly.
i am so fucking excited, i can’t tell you. happy soberversary to ME!
