Ruby made a custom clutch for me - she put so much thought and detail into it and consulted with me each step of the way to make sure I knew exactly what I was getting and to customize it just the way I wanted it. She responded very quickly to each message with kindness and professionalism! I really appreciated dealing with her and would highly recommend her for the great personality she puts into her communication and product!

About

Creative Chaos

I have always had a need to create and be creative. I started my first shop selling jewelry, when I realized that, as unique as it was, there were just too many great artists to compete with.

My second shop, was vintage clothing. I have always had a passion for vintage clothing, and so I would keep an eye out for the best items and then bring them home to alter or just leave alone if they were already perfect. Unfortunately, It got to the point where I was losing money because I just couldn't help but keep the really great items.

Then my friend and I got together and decided that we wanted to make something really great for ourselves, out of books, because we are major book worms. We put our heads together to make our first book clutch. It wasn't the best, but we learned a lot from it. My friend was already bored with the idea, but I had just started to gain the passion for making a great clutch out of fabulous vintage books.

I do not use any books that are not vintage. If they weren't, they wouldn't be as original as they are. Not to mention, the vintage books are the ones that speak to me personally, and I didn't want to sell anything that I wouldn't use myself.

It seemed like all the shops I had before lead up to me selling and making what I really love and have a passion for, combining the girly and dainty, with vintage to make the perfect date night clutch.

    I am a mom of one sweet and wonderful boy, and another on the way. I have always had a desire to create and design new and dainty things. I have fallen in love with putting together unique books that I find, with great fabrics.
