Love this bag! It's very well made out of quality fabric. The bag is deeper than it is wide, which is handier for me to put stuff in when running errands, or trying to keep the cat out of a current yarn project. The bag rolls up into a small bundle and the handy snaps keep it that way so it is also a great 'second bag' to take along or keep in the car. I've used it daily since I got it, and have added the shop to my favorites!

"The Silly Pearl": my childhood nickname by my parents (in Cantonese). Okay, they still call me that sometimes. It's their way of acknowledging my quirks while letting me know I'm precious to them.
Those same folks (i.e. my parents) are probably the two most influential creative forces in my life. My dad is the quintessential nerd with a creative side, who loves woodworking, painting, and has the neatest handwriting I've ever seen. My mom, an avid knitter, jewelry maker and amazing cook, is the one who encourages all my creative endeavors; as a kid she taught me to sew and took me to any art and craft class I wanted to attend. She is now my biggest cheerleader and I look up to her both as a woman, mother and professional.
After a long crafting hiatus to start my career, I was getting ready for my wedding and did a lot of DIY. This sparked a handmade custom bridal jewelry business for two very fun but busy years. Soon I became a stay at home mom to twin girls. I began blogging, first about them, then about all kinds of crafts on my blog, The Silly Pearl (http://www.sillypearl.com).
I love blogging, but I longed to start selling again. Blogging is busy in itself, so I kept putting it off. It was the opportunity to sell at a craft fair at my girls' elementary school that got me to make enough things to stock a shop. So glad to finally be here.
My shop's focus is providing lovingly handmade items for the family and the home. My items will reflect my wide range of interests in crafts, which span from sewing to paint to crochet to jewelry. I will also provide sewing/craft supplies in the near future. Hope to have more items in the shop soon!
