Getting caught up

Custom orders are fun, but I do hating getting backed up. It felt good yesterday to complete 4 orders and get them delivered. Progress! I made an adorable diaper bag for a new moms baby shower this Saturday. She gave me a scrap of Suzi Zoo fabric and we created a diaper bag. I finally shipped out a laptop bag for a great jewelry designer on Etsy Check her shop out. She has beautiful earrings and necklaces at unbelievable prices. I also completed 4 fun LAURE purses for two young ladies who picked some fun fabrics for their bags.

Custom Design Your Bag

I've been busy posting new listing at This morning I put a post for a Design Your Own Michelle Bag. This is my favorite and a bestseller. Contact me for production times.

If you live locally in Lewiston, Idaho, you can book your own Design-A-Purse Party. I've done a couple and they are so much fun. Definitely a no-pressure shopping experience. The best part is I have all my fabric there for you to look at and feel. See what suits your personality best. You can purchase bags and accessories that I have available or design your own purse. I recently did a Mom & Me party and it was so fun! Thanks Hy'd.

New to Blogging

Everyone is blogging, why not me. I'll try. I have my etsy site and my flickr site, but I thought this might be a fun way to keep up with whats going at my studio aka basement. I'm looking forward to getting started working on bags for the Fall, but before that I need to get caught up with my custom orders. I do love custom orders and have been really busy with that. Its fun to here from people from all over contact me through etsy to inquire about creating a purse for themselves or a gift for someone special. Here are some pics of some recent bags I've made.
