I am a former engineer, now stay-at-home mom of three daughters with a passion for creating. After having my third child, I left the corporate world to raise my girls full time. I loved being home but missed working. Having a creative outlet helped fill that void so I began sewing more in my free time. I started making burp cloths and blankets for my babies, then made a diaper bag for myself and suddenly discovered a passion and talent I didn't know I had - designing bags!

After months of designing and sewing I decided to try turning this hobby into a business, and so, Purse & Pouch was born. I started with craft shows and home parties. At one home party in 2008, a customer approached me and asked if I could make her a very small "purse" that she could put her cell phone in, some cash, and a few credit cards. I spent the next few weeks designing and perfecting what is now a customer favorite. Soon after this a friend told me about Etsy and I opened up my shop. I've been selling on Etsy for 7 years now, and loving every minute of the journey.

If you told me years ago when I was in engineering school that this was what I'd be doing now... I'd probably wouldn't have believed you! But I wouldn't change a thing... in designing bags and selling on Etsy I am able to combine my engineering design skills and my crafting skills to create beautiful purses and pouches that are also functional. I am inspired by beautiful, high quality fabrics. I absolutely love the freedom I have in working from home and doing something creative, on my own time, so that I can always be available for my children and my husband.

Thanks so much for visiting!
