A Fabulous Friend

Custom pen and ink illustration by Leslie of Chickaboom

This past Saturday my fabulous friend Leslie surprised me with a feature about me and my work on her lovely blog Chickaboom! I was so flattered! I've been following Leslie's blog for quite some time now and I always look forward to her posts. Leslie is a wonderful mom, talented illustrator and crafter, eco-conscious consumer, chocolate lover and more! Her blog is filled with lots of fun stories, creative adventures, cool finds, great tips.....well, I could go on and on! She has been so supportive of me and my work. Her comments on my blog inspire me to keep creating and always put a smile on my face. Thank you Leslie! Wishing you and your family much peace, health and joy in the New Year!

Home Sweet Home

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.

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…
