    It felt like I was opening a birthday present - the packaging was wonderful. Prompt communication with the seller & shipping. Will buy again soon! Thank you so much! Thank you for sharing your talent with the world, Paula!

    We love our new elf! He's adorable and really well-made.

    I love this bag! But then again, Paula's work is consistently wonderful, so that's not surprising! :) The bag is made out of a very unique black and white fabric (which is so much prettier than gray!) and I love the classic black and white letter print pockets. (The outer pockets even have flaps, which are handy for keeping the contents inside!) It is very roomy, with an adjustable strap, and a pocket on the inside, and was obviously packaged with love and attention to detail.

    As always, Paula's craftsmanship is exceptional! The bag is gorgeous, and the shipping was lightning fast. Thanks!

    This doll is perfect. We ordered two dolls for our two girls and we can’t get over the lovely intricate details of each of them, and how thoughtful Paula is. And she is truly an artist.

Stitching happiness

I grew up crafty, thanks to lots of DIY relatives, and began to hand-sew at age 8, graduating to a machine at age 13. After simultaneous retirement from teaching and discovering Etsy, I started sewing and selling handbags at the suggestion of my husband, but it wasn't until after the birth of my granddaughter that I began to design and sew purses and totes for the younger set. I'd found a niche and have been happily stitching little bags ever since!

When it comes down to it, making things makes me happy. Very happy. In fact, I find it very much like therapy. If you're a maker, you know exactly what I mean!
