Monday in the Studio

Today I started my day in the studio with a cup of tea with lemon and the internet.  I sold several bags over the weekend so I needed to print shipping labels and package them. I also added one new handbag, posted above, to my shop. Once that was done I put on my waterproof boots, since there was quite a lot of snow outside, and took my packages to the post office which is located about 2 blocks away from my studio. Very convenient! When I returned to my studio I pulled out my storage containers of textiles and selected fabric for my next batch of handbags. I decided on dove gray cotton canvas, chartreuse twill, red corduroy and burnt orange corduroy. These fabrics will all be transformed into new handbags over the course of the next few days. Stay tuned!

My One Second of Fame

I had my one second of fame today! I was hoping for the 15 minutes promised by Andy Warhol but I can't complain. 

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…

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!
