My daughter has called for help.  She is overloaded with orders for kindle covers, phone cases and key fobs, thus resulting in our favorite kind of day… A sew day.   Picture fabric flying, hair snarled, threads all over and lots of laughing.   As I was gathering everything I need to take to her (you would think she lives more than 1 hour 45 minutes away!)  I was reminded of a conversation we had when she was about 5.  I asked her what she thought she might like to be when she grew up.

A little look back on my daughter would reveal the following things about her:

1.  CUTE!!

2. CUTE turned into beautiful.

3.  Unpredictable.    From playing with baby dolls every day to dressing up as Frank Thomas from the Chicago White Sox for Halloween.

4. A girl that went from having to be told that if she was going to wear her brother’s hand me downs, then at least wear a hair bow to a girl that loves makeup, hair and shopping.

5.  Dirty (as in mud, dirt, grass – you name it)  Not that she started the day that way, but she played hard and kept up with her older brother.

6.  Funny, in a way that she would say things you never expect to hear and phrased in a way that would make you giggle.

7.  Sweet, so sweet .. when she would get hurt and I picked her up SHE would pat MY back.

8.  Fierce and fiercely loyal!  She once beat up the neighbor boy for calling her friend fat.

9.  SMART!!

10 – 50 .   TOMBOY

Back to her dream.   She wanted to build a house across the street and live there and sew with me every day!   I didn’t have the heart to tell her that her kindergarten teacher told me I needed to practice with her on cutting.  She was smart as a whip, cute as a bug and couldn’t cut paper properly! 🙂   Over the years  I would chuckle at the thought of that tomboy sewing with me for a living.   Well lo and behold that is exactly what has happened!   I know that when she graduates from college she might move on to bigger and better things, but I am enjoying the dream for now.

I am off to help her sew and bring a few projects of my own for her to help me sew.

Oh how the time flies.  I can not believe it is already September.  That means tailgating, football, thoughts of fall (maybe not the actual weather, but we can think about it)  and before you know it, Christmas!   I have been busy busy busy sewing up a storm with no time to post.  I thought I would pop in and post a few pictures of my newest bags and its always a good excuse to post some cute pup pics… just because he is so adorable.   Enjoy.

Funky Hipster Sling

 

 

Normally, I brag about other sellers and their items, but I am proud of this Hipster Bag I designed and have to show it off!  These Joel Dewberry fabrics go well together!  This KeetaCollection bag has pockets on the outside that are made to fit cell phones, ipods, or cameras!   I find that this bag would be perfect for a trip to the theme park!  My daughter begged me to send her a few scraps of fabric because she liked the fabrics so much too!  So…she created this Key Fob  found at PuppyDogsNPolkaDots out of one of the fabrics that I sent.  Hope you enjoy this collection of creative fabrics as much as my daughter and I did!

Cute cute cute key fob!

This week ended with a successful mailing of 3 wholesale orders and an order to the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft.  I have been fortunate enough to be invited to participate in the 2008 Holidazzle.  Oh if only I could visit and participate in the purchasing of some of the creative endeavors of the artist participating.   In addition to all of this, there was an actual completion of a custom order AND a bag or two listed on KeetaCollection.com   .   Next on my list, and partially finished are a couple of weekender bags.  They are looking good, and I can hardly wait to finish them.  

What do you think a woman that spends her days designing and creating does in her spare minutes?  Of course, I browse through Etsy.com looking at everyones wonderful creations!!  Here are a couple for tonight.
