Introducing the Maddrey

That's right, I have named my first bag.
Here it is in different colors.
Some taken.
Some available.
Customize the Maddrey with your favorite fabric.
Interior pockets for your phone, business cards, and that elusive key that always gets lost.
Pretty Daisy Maddrey.
One for all ages.
The Maddrey - cute, lightweight, practical, functional, and oh yeah, cute.

Edited Pic

Edited easter bag pic. Edited with Picnik - which is super easy. I will be using this often!

Bags that have found a home!

Love this fabric. I have one more just like this one if you love it!

I have three more just like this one. And a close-up of the forest green polka-dots:

I have enough fabric to make 3 or 4 more of this. Which, btw, is my favorite so far. It looks like it belongs on Easter Sunday!

And a close-up on the pleats:

Weekend Update

I have had a very good week ! Got a new laptop today:) woohoo! My hubby did most of the picking out, I just had to make sure I liked the size, look, and feel of it. This was very exciting for me, as we have been talking about it for a year & waiting for the right time. I liquidated my Coach stock & bought a Toshiba Satellite A505. Loving it so far - never ha/ve to wait for my computer engineer husband to get off the computer again (and this is saying alot, as he has two)

I also went to the Patsy Aiken tent sale this week. Thanks for the notice, Steph! Crazy place to be if you don't have children. Moms everywhere! I felt sympathy for the moms who had to bring their kids with them to the madness (the line was 30+ minutes). You good see the relief on the solo moms faces as they walked by the moms trying to juggle their 3 kids, stroller, and laundry basket full of sale items among the racks and racks and racks of clothes. They really did have some very cute clothes & I picked up several gifts. But truly, the fabric is to die for. I think I left with something like 36 yards of fabric. Perfect for all the creations that are moving around in my head - more bags, clutches, key chains, scrapbooks, etc! My sister-in-law Ashley had also asked me to make bedding & curtains for her nursery & I was able to get a perfect fabric for that - green & white polka dots. So precious!

My mom came to see my work space & play (shop) on Friday. You know where we went? Fresh Market & Harris Teeter. Yep, that's us! No, really, mom had to get some stuff that you can't find in Henderson - bulger wheat, rye, wild rice, you know, all that healthy stuff. We did do some fun shopping at one of my favorite local shops. Martin & Mary's. This place is right by my house (for two more weeks) & always has the best clothes. I do love to shop handmade, but with my body type, if I didn't make it, its most likely not going to fit me. Martin stocks his shop with clothes that are comfortable, made well, fit nice, and are oh so adorable. To top it all off, Martin is an awesome guy & always so friendly & helpful. !

And luckily, a funny thing happened. A pair of Chip & Pepper mens' jeans somehow made it into my bag, I discovered when I got home Friday night. And whatdya know, they were Chance's size. He just happened to be in the market for a new pair of jeans, so he tried them on - perfect fit. We went back Saturday, told Martin what happened, and paid for the jeans. Totally incidental, but a great way to get Chance into a new pairs of jeans - now he can alternate, as he'll have two pairs:) Anywho, Martin & Mary's is moving to Meadowmont in Chapel Thrill, but still worth the drive!

I've also been busy making handbags this weekend, I'll post them later today or tomorrow. I really have been scrapbooking & paper crafting as well, but everything is either a surprise or a gift for later in the year, so I can't post yet.

Happy Sunday everyone!

Perfect week at the OBX

We made it back safe & sound from the OBX & it was a blast! So perfect, relaxing in the sound, hanging out with friends, eating good food, & drinking good beer. Some peaceful pics:

I also jumped off Jockey's Ridge, but didn't think through the whole short jean skirt thing. So ya'll just get a picture of Chance.

Pretty sandy piggies, right where they belong.

Nice Hair!

America's first wind powered brewery. Little fact we learned on North Carolina Weekend, because we are 50, not 27.

Bag & Page

A new style bag:

I love this style! I have been carrying this all week - it is lightweight, functional, and cute - if I do say so myself! I already have an order for Tori - I will spend my vacation next week thinking about which fabric to use for her:) If you love an over the shoulder bag, this is the one for you.

A new scrapbook page:

I also love this page! Be Here Now by Mason Jennings was our first song at our wedding. I loved the way this turned out - lyrics as the background. I used a regular size pen for everything except "You are the love of my life", on which I used a calligraphy pen. I cut the polka dot letters using my new Cricut(!). Can't wait to frame it & hang it on the wall in our house!

I will be on vacation next week with some good friends, so I may not be able to post anything. Happy July!

Happy July!

I apologize for being slack with the posting this past week. I have been so busy at work and at home that I just crash on the deck or by the pool by the end of the day. Anywho, I got a Cricut yesterday and I am so excited about it! Woohoo!!!! I was a busy paper cutting machine last night. I have many projects coming up for different parties and various sundries and the Cricut will be ever so helpful. I started a scrapbook page last night based on the first song from our wedding - Be here now by Mason Jennings. Can't wait to show it off:)

I have been working on bags as well, giving them away to be road tasted for now, with hopes to sell in the fall. Let me know if you are interested in anything particular & I'll give you a good price in these early stages. (wink, wink)

We had a great 4th & I hope everyone enjoyed celebrating America's birthday. Happy Monday:)
