I specialize in fun and out of the ordinary canvas totes, unique hand stitched goodies, as well as an occasional vintage find or two. All designs, be it a tote or stuffed creation, are handmade originals straight from my sketch pad. My totes make great reusable market bags, beach or pool bags, diaper bags, or shopping bags. Most of the totes are also reversible allowing you to choose your mood. They also make great gifts for friends or family members who are tough to buy for.

My tote bags have three functions: to hold your goodies whatever they may be, to help the environment by being reusable, and to make you and the others around you smile!

It seems wherever you turn you hear that plastic bags are harmful to the environment. They ruin landscape, get into animals’ bellies that mistake them for food, and can end up in a landfill where it can take thousands of years to breakdown. In this breakdown process they separate into smaller and smaller toxic particles that contaminate soil and water. Eventually you catch on to the idea that plastic bags are hurting the earth. I didn’t want to be responsible for animals dying and the earth being poisoned, so the next step was to use reusable bags. When I went to do my grocery shopping I would see the same bland reusable bags at the checkout. While I appreciated people were using reusable bags, I felt they were dull and boring. I decided to do something about it, and that’s how these quirky creations came about.

So my intent was the next time you heard the phrase “paper or plastic” at your grocery store, you would answer “neither” and use one of these eco-friendly, fun, and colorful totes to carry your goodies.

As for the other unique stuffed goodies that are featured in my shop from time to time, those too are designed to bring a smile to your face. When I was little, my dream job was to work for the Muppet Show. That didn’t quite work out but my love of making stuffed creations hasn’t faded away. Each creation is first drawn out on my sketch pad and then brought to life with fabric. I am always excited to see the finished product and hopefully you will like them as much as I do and give them a home.

Thank you for taking the time to visit, and I hope you come again. Please feel free to convo me with any comments or questions, I would love to hear from you.
