My First Post!

Another beginning to another year. I guess it's the perfect time to start a new blog, right? Well, here's mine! My new blog! Yay!

Well, so far nothing super exciting has happened yet this year. Just taking it day by day. I tried to spend Christmas break designing tons of new designs for my bags so I could already have the ball rolling by the time January came around. But I think I enjoyed not having anything to do just a little too much because I finished my first new design of the year just yesterday. I've had some pretty successful brainstorming the past couple days because I have a few more new designs anxiously waiting to be finished. I can't wait to make them so I know they will be good!

My new bag is made from a heavy natural linen that I bought from a girl on Etsy. I hope she has more because I LOVE it! Linen is wonderful because it pairs beautifully with almost every fabric of every color and every design. I'm afraid I will never get tired of using it. And just a hint to my other new designs: they all have linen in them (except for one). Shocker, huh?


  1. Welcome to the world of blogs. That is a lovely bag - I like the linen mixed with fabrics look, too.

  2. Hi Rachel

    Welcome to blogging! I found your address through Flickr. Love your bag, it looks so lovely and structured and the blues are gorgeous with the linen. I look forward to reading more.

  3. Love, love this bag. The linen looks great!

    Congrats on starting a blog. I just started one this year, too!

  4. I am so proud to call you my friend...you and your talents!!
