I lived in New Orleans for 18 years and Baton Rouge for 7 but as an Army wife the last 10 years have involved a lot of moving.

A few years ago I met up with an entrepreneurial mom who allowed me a steady income working from home sewing her hand bag line. She started her business from home and has built a great business making a very good income. I CAN DO THAT! At least I think I can, so here I am on Etsy giving it a try so stay tuned. I am constantly thinking of new things to make, build or sew and I am hoping I can pass those things along to you. You never know I just might come up with the next big thing.
