Lots of eco conscious folks buying mesh produce bags this week! Just say no to plastic bags!!
We're digging out from over 30" of snow! No mail delivery or pickups today! Even if I could get packages to post office, there are no trucks going to central sorting office in Baltimore yet! We'll try again tomorrow!
Talk about custom! I'll take any fabric bundle pack (6 to 8 assorted fabrics) to arrange into a one of a kind bag! Contact me for details!

About

Business founded by necessity of changing economy!

The success of this business has been a very happy accident!

BIG update - My husband has joined the business eff. Feb 2013! We are now 100% self employed makers and sellers! Should be interesting spending nearly 24/7 with each other!

After a major corporate job loss (Nov 07), I decided I couldn’t bear trying to find a job and work as hard as I do for anyone else. The additional burden of being 50 yrs young and competing for jobs in this economy was a big impetus for me to decide to open my own business.

Trouble was, I didn’t know what I wanted to do! I only knew I wanted to do something creative again (in the 80’s I’d made a living painting stoneware pottery, and also had jewelry and magnet businesses) I bought a sewing machine so I could learn machine quilting while I figured out what path I should take.

I came upon some great upholstery fabrics, and made up a bunch of grocery/carry all tote bags and hit the craft show circuit (April 08). A customer told me about etsy, and I opened my shop (Sept 08). Business was building and I decided I was going to throw myself into this and make it work.

I promised my husband I would clip coupons, and not buy shoes/bags/etc to keep our expenses down. I found that the coupon organizers I bought were cheap paper or plastic. Some were set up that made you sort soup and frozen food in the same section! Searching ebay, amazon, and the internet turned up nothing else that worked or looked better, just more cheap plastic/vinyl and those big ugly binders!

I designed my own, based on my needs and with some cool fabric – and by the time the 3rd person had stopped me in the store to check it out the light bulb had gone off! I fine tuned the basic design, and they were an immediate hit!

In Nov 09 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. This business and specifically etsy became my rock. I spent 10 months battling cancer, and was unable to do shows or get around too much. Being able to focus on building my business on etsy, and learning and absorbing all the amazing resources here were for me, life saving. I will always love etsy for being there for me when I most needed it.

I am the original and premier maker of this style organizer! Funny that something I started to do just to save money is now making me money and allowing me to sustain this ever growing business!

My organizers have been featured in national publications and news reports. Couponing communities have been incredibly supportive and helpful in the development of exactly what is wanted and needed for the best couponing system for many.

Added to my line next were reusable sandwich bags and mesh produce bags - we are very committed to using as little plastic as possible, and encourage others to reduce their throw away plastic use!

With pages of ideas and new items in the pipeline, I see so much ahead for me to do that will also provide opportunities for others as I continue to grow and expand the reach of this business.

I LOVE MY LIFE!

    When I'm not sewing, I'm playing with fibers - crocheting, knitting, felting and weaving. There are at least 10 projects going at any given time! The rest of my time is balanced as a wife, mom, cook, cleaner, gardner, etc. Never a dull moment!

    After 30 years as a welder always exposed to the weather, it was time for a big change. This couldn't be bigger - working with my wife 24/7 - I must be crazy!!!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Don't see the perfect fabric for you? I have teamed up with a fabric supplier here on etsy to broaden the choices for you! https://www.etsy.com/shop/glowgirl16?section_id=7070493

Also, some people find fabric on their own and send it to me, just contact me if you'd like to do this!

I do not have an embroidery machine, so I cannot monogram anything, but these are able to be done at your local monogram kiosk/shop.

If you'd like multiples or sets of anything, contact me for a multi item discount!

Sizing details

Most of the fabrics are available in any size or item I make. If I don't have a listing for it, just contact me and I can set up a listing for whatever you'd like, in whatever size!

Care instructions

My cotton and twill organizers are all machine washable, in cool cycle and low heat dry. Waterproof fabrics are wipe clean.

All upholstery/home decor fabrics can be machine washed and hung to dry. (slight shrink may occur in first washing of some of the tote bags)

If you'd like to further protect your fabric, you can use Scotch Guard or other water repellent spray.

Quality and Product Details

I take great pride in making high quality items that hold up to heavy use!

Fabrics - All patterned cottons are 100% higher quality fabric. Linings are all kona or cotton couture fabric. Never a cheap thin cotton or poly fabric here!

Stitching is all double stitched and pressure points are super secure.

2" and 4" organizers have button and heavy duty elastic for closure. The 6" single and double wides have a heavier duty zipper that hold up to daily use with NO problem!

Dividers are a heavy card stock, with wider tabs that allow for larger print labels to be used!
