Kim Duncan's Profile

About

My name is Kim, I live in a small Texas town, and I'm married with 4 quirky cats and a loving pitbull. I have a full time job on top of making purses, and when I'm not doing one of those two things we are traveling. My husband and I try to spend every spare minute seeing something new!

I love to read, and I love re-purposing items into something new... so why not combine the two?! I turn books into purses!

They are definitely a conversation starter. Everywhere I go people ask me about them, I even carried my Breaking Dawn purse into the theater for the release of Part 1 and several people tried to buy it from me.

I love custom orders because it's usually something I never would have thought to make, plus I usually find something new to read in the process.

The greatest thing…

The greatest thing about making these purses is meeting so many book lovers, including the amazing authors themselves! I've made purses for several authors, either for their own personal collection or for giveaways that they were hosting. It's a great feeling to have an author ask you to transform their creation into another form of art!
