Hi there! I am the lone female in a house full of boys. My studio is my woman-cave and retreat where I can design, sew and be a handbag fanatic. Nice to meet you!

I am a former high school Family and Consumer Sciences teacher turned work-at-home mom to three beautiful boys.  This blog is a way to share my love for handbags, sewing and quilting.

The Boys

My life and loves. Oldest is 16, Middle is 14, Youngest is 10. I will not be sharing their names but may on occasion share a event or two with them in it.  And full of sass and spunk!

Some of my favorites:

Handbags: I have too many to count. Don’t ask me to! I change them daily and make them all.the.time!

Reading: I am a romantic at heart, so give me a good historical romance book and a quiet place to read it and I’m a happy girl! Too bad that doesn’t happen often.

Treats: Chocolate chip cookies, dark chocolate, Fro-Yo by the pound, Mint Mocha coffee with Hershey’s Chocolate Caramel Creamer *sigh*.

As always with us overprotective mama bears, please do not use pictures that my kiddos are in. They’re my kids after all!  Thanks 🙂
