About

Ever since I first burned crayon wax to my mother's double-boiler while making candles, I've been a DIY project enthusiast. Despite my early mishaps I continued trying new projects and I eventually began impressing friends and family (with my enthusiasm if nothing else), so I decided it was time to take the next step!
When I first saw handmade book purses being sold at craft shows I fell in love with both the idea and the look, but they were out of my price range, so I set out to create the same fun & classy look at a more moderate price. I started with the Nancy Drew series because so many of us grew up loving them (and their covers are a hoot!), but have branched out into the classics and any books with beautiful covers that catch my eye.
