Monday Morning



It's Monday and I have a busy day ahead of me. I need to finish up a custom order Wayfarer Purse and have it ready for shipping this afternoon. The Offbeat Messenger Bag posted above is a custom order I created for a lovely repeat customer and it also needs to be shipped today. I recently posted on the main page of my Etsy shop that I now take custom orders and have got quite a few requests via Etsy and outside sources. Later on today I plan to make a trip to my local fabric shop to purchase some much needed supplies and some new fabric that I can use for my applique work. So I'm off now and wishing everyone a wonderful day!

I'm so happy to hear you are so busy with work. I guess Etsy is a great resource for designers to find consumers? I love Etsy but I always wondered how it worked out for the other side. Of course, your bags are ss great that a little advertising and you would definitely get orders!
I'm dreaming of the cooler, fall weather and which bag of yours I would like to see on my arm! I love bags, of course,but especially more unique ones I won't see on every arm I pass!

Have a wonderful day and happy creating!

I love the look of that EtsyMini on the right. So cohesive! One of the important steps toward becoming a featured seller, I think!

The Pesky Cat's Day Dream

Katzenhohle by Dornroeschen Filzunikate I recently came across this incredible cat bed made by German artist Dornroeschen Filzunikate. This beautiful piece of functional art called a Katzenhohle , cat cave, is handmade of felted wool. It's definitely the most unique cat bed I have ever seen. It would bring a bit of nature into my urban NYC home. I think my Anni would love a cat cave although her favorite spots right now are the pillow behind my head in bed, a straw basket that was meant to store magazines and a storage box made from fabric that becomes a hammock when she sleeps in it. My sweet Anni FOX 5 Update : A while back I wrote a post about a story that Fox 5 news was doing on Etsy and the handmade market. I was interviewed in my studio as part of the feature. An Etsy press agent recently informed me that the story aired April 15th and he also missed it. He said he is trying to get a copy of it from the studio. I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes ava

Spring is Here!

To celebrate the spring equinox I decided to take the entire day off from working in the studio. OK, I confess I did sew one button onto an applique, but that's it! The rest of the day was spent bike riding, watching waves and smelling spring flowers wafting through the air. The weather was absolutely beautiful with temperatures in the mid 70's. No jacket required. Just a t-shirt and sunglasses. Hope you are all having a great weekend and enjoying the arrival of spring!
