It seems that no matter how many bags, purses and pouches I do, not one of them stays at home. I mean with me. I am always in love with my latest creation, but then put it up to my shop, and it´s no longer mine. Of course that´s the way it should be but hey, I think I should own one of my bags at least? For promotional reasons if not anything else?
Now I have one! I found this pretty red-white-plaid pillow case while thrifting last week. What caught my eye was the embroidery, it had initials PM which happen to be mine (last name first but close enough) - that was if not an omen at least it made it much easier to keep that fabric myself.
I lined the bag with pretty floral cotton which used to be my sister´s curtains so this bag is more than one way very me. Very much indeed.
Natutrally I had to include some wool, felting and a little birdie, and size of the bag is totally up to my use (very large). I love it!
So I have a new pretty bag. What´s even more new is my way of living. It´s Sunday 1st of August when I write this, and today is the first day of my new life. I am having time off my daily work to pursue this HandmadebyMia-life of mine. I have thought this through times enough and now was the time. I did spend last month not only having little bit of holidays but also stocking up for autumn, made some research, took millions of photographs and made some great contacts (and some wholesale possibilities, too).
I have many exiting things happening right now. I cannot talk all of that quite yet, but you´ll be first ones to know as I made a decision to blog more regularly. So watch this space Mon-Fri to see how my journey goes! I hope you´ll be joining me and keep commenting as you have done so spectacularly already. Thank you, dears!
This is so exiting and wonderful and I am loving it. Happy week, everyone!
