I'll bet people can tell about your personality by all the things you carry in your bag. As a high school art teacher I often pull out all sorts of interesting things but mostly I have pens, pencils, erasers of various types, probably some sort of paint brush, definitely Sharpie pens in various colors, crayons for the grandchildren, bandaids for cuts while student cuts while carving, a sketchbook with tons of drawings and probably a spoon or fork....and that is just for starters! I have been in groups where we would compete for the most odd thing in our purse like the old Truth or Consequences game show. Well, here is a purse for a lady who loves to be organized. The diagonal back pockets are not just pretty but also functional. Raise the flap on the purse and find another large pocket big enough for a magazine, a notebook, folder, Kindle or IPad. A key clasp is easily accesible from the inside of the bag so you never have to dig around in the bottom of the purse. All these pockets and plus plenty of room inside the bag to fill it will all those extras you carry. I really would like to know what is the most strange thing in your purse?

I rise early in the morning and go down late in the evening. My desire between waking and sleeping is to make things pretty or make pretty things! I have been in secondary education for twenty years teaching high school art, helping young adults recognize their creative nature or trying to help them develop one. I thought I had given up sewing when my little ones grew too big to applique their clothes and make cutesy clothes for them. I rediscovered that love of creative sewing one summer two or three summers back when I wandered into a quilt shop with my sister (the queen bee of quilting) and saw a little clutch purse pattern that looked too simple not to make. I was hooked! The rest of the summer I was designing purses and have been doing so every since.
