So some wonderful, wonderful news--- I AM FINALLY GRADUATING!!! It's been a long time coming and well overdue!

I've been so wrapped up in my senior year the past few months (oh, and having a baby in January) that the poor online store has been put on hold until I had some free time. I have some amazing ideas and products coming soon. I'm going to start listing some new things tomorrow. Next product to come-- a wristlet with a shoulder strap!!!

The Flower Patch Clutch

So what is behind the design of the new flower patch clutch? Actually, my mother in law gave me the idea for this bag. She was going through magazines one day and came across a handbag with flowers all over the bag (check out bigbuddha bags... but I took the clipping home and thought it over. How can I make this bag more like something I would carry? It's a clean cut bag and is really nice with about anything. But I wanted something a tad more urban with a touch of artsy. It seems as though the new in thing is flowers on bags... so thank goodness we've been doing the flower thing since early 2008! The result? The flower patch wristlet with crazy white thread accents... I hope to be doing more of these and maybe even turn it into one of my fold-over clutches. I think for the next round of wristlets this style... I'll add the silver studs to it.

New Leather Has Arrived!

So the much anticipated wait is FINALLY over. The remaining new leather colors have finally arrived. And I love them. These are in addition to the really bright colors that came in last week (the lime green, aqua, pink, and orange).

I have one more wholesale order to finish up before I can finally move on to making some new products. I absolutely cannot wait. I really want to dig in right now... but I must have patience.

Also- don't forget that the Bloomington Handmade market is coming up this Saturday. Visit www.bloomingtonhandmademarket.blogspot.com for more details.

Happy Monday.

PS) oh! and we got into the Indieana Handicraft Exchange in June. Can't wait!!!

I hearts Anthropologie.

I found this bag at Anthropologie and HAD to have it (brown bag). I love it. It has flowers on it, and as you know from our line, we love flowers on our bags. So I bought it and brought it home.
I immediately noticed a problem after I started using it--- the strap was too short for me. It still didn't bother me enough to not to use it. However.... this bag inspired me to make my own version (parchment bag). Check it out. There will be more to come... in lots of colors and sizes. Maybe one day Anthropologie will carry my bags. One can hope! :)

Have a great weekend.

We are back... yet again

Hello world.

We are finally back in the studio. And we are ready. Ready in a big bad way to knock your socks off. We have awesome new leather coming in. I mean awesome. We have two sets that we are working with-- bright colors and pastel colors. I am excited. You should be too.

Here is a preview of the bright colors. Love it. Did I mention that it's environmentally friendly leather? Yes... yes it is. Who knew there was such a thing? And of course, it's Italian leather. The styles for spring are still in our line of urban chic. We have a new handbag that has lots of poppies on it that was inspired by a bag from Anthropologie. Stay tuned.

Mini Handicraft Exchange Show....

Please come. Support your local artists.

Other happenings: Joel and I have been so so busy with the holiday season already. It seems as though everyone is doing their shopping early this year... or maybe it's just really busy and we'll keep on getting bombarded with orders up until the very last minute! :o) Whatever the case, you have been keeping Joel and I very busy! We are hard at work at the studio every night working on getting new things in the shop and getting your gifts together. We are also working on creating a new wallet (yes, a wallet!) that will hopefully be debuting right after the holidays.
Because you have so good to us... we are extending our sale. To show our thanks, through December 15th, take 15% off of our website prices. If you come to the Indieana Exchange, we'll honor it there too. To get this discount... type in XMAS upon checkout. This is good for only our website!

We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Happy December!
Love, SU
