I was lucky enough to be in town the other week (looking for a job I might add) and wandered into one of the fashion boutiques. We got to chatting and I happened to mention to her that I make bags. I was pretty excited when she said that she would love to see my work to possibly put in her store and she is interested in getting some 'handmade' bags placed in the store alongside some of the other handmade lines. Well . . . I came home with a very large smile on my face. I've since thrown a couple of my own tote designs together and one of my messenger bags along with another new design which needs some tweaking before it moves forward.
Aside all this creating and sewing I have been working on the creation of my new business "Clare Marion". It is all in the early stages and I am yet to get my website up and running - when I figure out how it is done! (if you have any tips on this I'd love to hear from you) But what is really exciting is . . . . my new bag labels are on there way. I went through an etsy shop to have them made up and they should be shipping them out to me this week. Super exciting and I just can't wait to start sewing them into my bags and getting them out there - I promise when I get them I will upload some piccies of them in all their glory. My business cards have been designed and they are next on the list.
creating and drafting . . .
My two latest Totes . . . ready for market!
My messenger bag - so cute and convenient!
So . . . this is just some of what I have been working on and much much more. The ideas just keep flowing . . . just need more hours in the day and a bigger bank balance to shop shop shop!!
Till next time . . . take care all :)
