Ordered a little something special for my friends for Christmas. I couldn't quite decide what I wanted so I gave Tara a few ideas and she figured out exactly what was in my head😉 They are perfect and my friends will love them.

A little bag therapy or Tarapy if you will.

I love a good bag or purse. But the problem about so many of them is they don't have all the things you want or need in one bag. One may have slip pockets but no zipper pockets or it may just be a bottomless pit with no pockets at all, in which case all your stuff just falls to the bottom. (That drives me crazy.)
I like to make bags that I can decide what features I want and I can pick out the materials to make it.
When you have kids, all you moms know, you have to have a bag that works for you. It is very frustrating when you are carrying your child or holding their hand and your purse keeps falling off your shoulder. Who wants to keep fidgeting with a bag?
When I had my daughter I started creating bags that were suitable for me and either cute or sophisticated depending on my mood. Just because you are a mom doesn't mean you want to carry a bag with teddy bears on it all the time or maybe you do but I wanted the option.
A good bag is like therapy. If you have one it is a relief and satisfying.

I was thrilled to be included in the Holiday Issue of luri and wilma magazine in November 2013. Check it out at http://issuu.com/luriandwilma/docs/a_very_green_holiday_online
