Creativity unleashed....

What a blessing to be able to do what you love…so true!! I love to be creative. My mind is always buzzing with new ideas and ways to add pops of color to most things I touch. I am pretty sure I have passed that down to my oldest daughter who is always wanting to do projects, which usually involve cutting, painting, gluing, etc. and of course time away from my sewing machine. Most importantly I feel truly blessed to be home my three daughters and son, to share in all their milestones and just the tiny little changes and fun things they do each day.
What started as Christmas presents for my family and friends has escalated into this business!!! My husband was the one who first encouraged me to sell them. That loving comment, plus the fact that I just can't suppress my love for creativity and design, has created Mary Alison Handbags.
Most days are filled with sewing, kids, sewing, kids, kids, cooking, cleaning, kids and hopefully a bit more sewing after that. I love to watch my designs come to life and even more to pass that love onto you so you can carry a bag that expresses who you are. I hope you enjoy shopping and browsing. Come back often because styles and fabrics are updated often and each new seasonal line, once posted is featured only for a limited time.

Be Authentic, Be Bold, Be YOU!
