School Started!

Both of my girls started back to school today! It was long overdue!
Now I have my me time during the day and I'm hoping to be very productive with it. We will see.

In honor of them going back to school I'm having a sale in my etsy shop, 20% off your total before shipping. Check out my shop for all of the details!

Enjoy your day everyone I know I will!

Saturday Aug 25

I can't believe next weekend is Labor Day weekend. August just flew by.

Today I'm taking a break from making purses and I'm working on curtains for my oldest daughters room. My husband painted her room this morning and we went and got material for her curtains. The room is a pink and we will paint her furniture black and the fabric we got is white with a black print on it and then black fabric for valences. It will look very cool when done. She is accenting it with a lot of pictures from Paris so it will have a very cool french theme.

I will try to post pictures when it is done.

Poll Thanks

Thanks to everyone who took the time to take my poll. I will be making more totes with longer handles and pockets! Funny I just had a custom order and she wanted shorter handles on 3 totes!

Thanks again!!

Where does the time go? I can't believe August is nearing an end. My poll is also almost over too so please take a minute to take it.

I have so much catching up to do. I have several custom orders to finish tomorrow when more supplies are to be delivered, I have a ton of new fabric that I want to play with and of course I need to clean the house and go to the grocery store.

Next week this time my girls will be in school! Can you tell I'm excited? I plan to use those hours to work on purses and my etsy shop. At least that is the plan.

Have a great Wednesday!

Take My Poll

I just created a poll to help me design some totes. Please take a second to check all the answers that apply to you. I really think this is a great feature to have. I hope to post a poll at least once a month.

This week got a little crazy, getting my oldest daughter ready for GULP high school and then I got sick. Two more weeks and they will be in school and I hope to take that time to work on my totes. The summer went by very fast!

Well the weekend is almost here and that means working my "other" job so not much time for the computer. Have a great weekend, Monday is right around the corner ;o)

I have to admit Monday is one of my favorite days of the week. I know I'm strange! I love it more during the school year ;) I can get back into a routine and get stuff done that doesn't get done in the craziness of the weekend.

Today I spent re-organizing my studio, mostly cleaning but I came up with a new system for my finished bags. I was also to finally list a few new items.

Tomorrow I'm hoping to get some more pictures taken and make a few more totes.

Happy Monday!

End of the Weekend

Well it is almost over, and I think I'm glad ;)

I had to work both yesterday and today at my "real" job but today really paid off! We marked down a ton of home dec fabric so I got first dibs on them. Lots of really cool totes will be listed in my shop over the next few weeks. Several fabrics to make totes for boys. These will be perfect size to take to Grandmas or on an outing but not look like a diaper bag!

Never got to make myself a new bag but with this new fabric I think I found something I like better than what I had picked out.

Hope everyone had a great weekend

which means payday!! Always a good day when you get paid!

Tons to do today but I am going to make time to work on a fall purse and then I WILL make myself a new tote. I haven't made myself a new one in a long time so today is the day. Maybe I will even buy some new fabric!

I listed a Christmas tote in my etsy shop yesterday. I know way to early but it is so cute and I had a lot of fun making it. I couldn't see just letting it hang out here, plus I would have wanted to keep it.

Have a great Friday!

Rain Rain

that is all that it has done today. Just a cloudy, gloomy, rainy kind of day. I spent today listing a few more totes on my etsy shop and I took a nap. Have to work my real job tonight so I wanted to be rested. I wanted to sew a few things but it didn't get done. I have about 3 totes that just need handles but the belting I ordered for them isn't the right color so now I need to find something else.
Once it cools off I think I will be able to get a lot more done, I don't have AC in my studio but it doesn't get too hot but still hard to work in.

Wow my first entry on my blog. This is a very foreign area of the web for me so be nice!
I plan on using this to share what I have been making. For the last few weeks I have been sewing and building my stock in my etsy shop. I plan on taking a break today! My back is killing me and my house and kids have been neglected. So I guess it is time to take care of them. Once that gets done I will spend some time on the site and cleaning the studio.
Have a great Wednesday!
