About

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 stay-at-home mom to three beautiful boys and wife to my high school sweetheart.  This blog is a way to share my love for handbags, sewing and quilting.

Hubby

I will call him “M”. Private man that M is…. He likes photos of himself just about as much as I do (which isn’t a lot!)

The Boys

My life and loves. Oldest is getting ready to turn 13, Middle is 10, Youngest is 6 I will not be sharing their names but may on occasion share a event or two with them in it. Cuties, huh? 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.

Legos: Mom’s of boys will understand the large amounts of Lego’s we accumulate. We have tons of bins and I LOVE to build with my boys. M and the kids always buy me a set or two on my birthday and Christmas and I have my own sets displayed on shelves in my craft room!

Treats: Chocolate chip cookies, dark chocolate, Cheetos, Dunkin Donuts Mint Mocha coffee with Hershey’s Chocolate Caramel Creamer *sigh*. My new obsession is fro-yo.
