(Although, for the bigger items like the gigantic squid I designed I often get down on the floor and sketch out designs on carpenter paper) Anything you see in my shop is a concept I came up with on my own and produced with my own hands.

I am on a mission to keep chic handbags and accessories affordable. Most of my bag designs are truly one-of-a-kind and made with love. Usually with a toddler sitting on my lap.

A special thank you goes out to my husband Jeremy for being a soundboard and model, Mak for doing my logo and banner (she is a talented artist and you may eventually see her artwork here for sale), and to Baby Z for being a good helper.
