Wedding Season is Upon Us!

I love weddings! It's so fun to hear what color schemes brides are using these days. So many are going bold and bright - like one of my recent customers who is using hot pink and yellow! What a great color combination. When she contacted me to design jewelry holders for her bridesmaids she settled on a great fabric by Etsuko Furuya called Animal Silhouette.

In order to make the holders more personalized I embroidered each of the girls names on the inside flap.

The best part is that the girls can use these again and again...and not just for their jewelry! The holders are the perfect size for cash, credit cards, ID, gift cards, business cards and wallet sized photos.

I've been receiving a lot of requests for wedding orders lately...the wedding season is truly upon us!

Riplets = Giveaway Time!

One of the great things that I've enjoyed about selling my bags is meeting my customers. A week ago I met Jamie, a stay-at-home mom to TRIPLETS! We instantly formed a bond and now are emailing each other daily sharing stories and advice on raising multiples. She has the most adorable blog that captures all the incredible moments in her little one's lives.

I am honored and excited that Jamie asked to host a giveaway for one of my large cosmetic bags. The best get to pick the fabric yourself! Head over to Jamie's blog for all the details and to take a peek at how her little "Riplets" are doing! They are just the cutest little things!

HURRY...the giveaway ends on Friday! Good Luck!

PS - more giveaways are ahead in March! WOO HOO!!

New Fabrics


Have you ever realized just how many fabrics there are to choose from? I get so overwhelmed by all the options! Anything bright and fun catches my eye. I am usually drawn to Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, Sandi Henderson, Michael Miller and the list goes on!

I've slowly been adding some new designs to my fabric stash. Look for bags in these fabrics to be added to the shop in the next week. I also will be sharing with you a new line of bags that I have been working on!
