Front Page on July 4th!


Sometime early this morning on July 4th, my Saddle Bag made it to the front page of Etsy's website! I was informed by a friend who sent me an e-mail that included a screen shoot. Thanks Mellissa! I got a lot more hearts added to my site and interest in my shop. My thanks to Lusummers for creating such a cool treasury and including my handbag. Lusummers creates lovely mixed media art that is available on Etsy. One of my favorites is a black and white hand embriodered pinback button. Check out her shop !

Later on tonight my partner Tom and I plan to watch the Macy's Fourth of July Fireworks from the comfort of our apartment. We only get to see what reaches over the top of the buildings in front of us but it's still a lot better than being outside and trying to find a spot among the huge crowd of spectators. I am not sure if Anni, our kitty will enjoy the fireworks as much as we will! Happy 4th of July to you all!

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!

Time

My work pictured on the left has taken time away from my work on the right. Spending free time these days with friends and walks on the beach.


Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

On March 27th I got a call from a producer of CBS Sunday Morning News letting me know that they are doing a feature on America's handmade economy and want to feature some of my bags on the set. I was quite excited. I dropped off some of my handbags at the studio that day. Posted above is my security entrance card. My first name is spelled wrong and my head is turned to the side because the producer asked me a question just as the security guard was taking the photo. I was allowed in the building with my profile shot so all was well. 

The CBS feature was broadcast nationally today. I was not at home and only had access to a small portable black and white TV with so so reception. Yes, rabbit ears. In the opening shot, CBS Sunday Morning News anchor Charles Osgood points to my handbags for about a second. he he  But I am still honored that they chose my bags from the th…
