Holiday Celebration

The best time of the season, holiday spirit is finally back!  Pretty soon, we are leaving one year behind and welcoming a new year, 2013.  There's just something being around family, friends, good food, and reflecting on all the wonderful things that we take for granted in life.  This holiday season, I  am grateful to be able to share my blog with you and continue this journey as a handbag designer!  What are you grateful for?!

This holiday season, add some sparkle to your outfit and statement accessories!  I am excited to announce that a couple of our bags were featured in the December issue of Zooey Magazine with Nikki Reed on the cover.  Shown below, the retro flapover bag featured in the trend section of Zooey Magazine.  Isn't this the perfect outfit for your holiday party? You can shop for the retro flapover here.

DIY Holiday Greeting Cards

This holiday season, I've decided to be a little creative and started making cards!  Holiday season can be a bit hectic, but if there's one thing I'm going to hand make this holiday season is my own personalized greeting!  DIY greeting cards are the perfect way to send holiday cheer through the mail to loved ones.  I just love folding peace crane as they hold a symbolic meaning.  The crane in Japan is one of the mystical or holy creature and it is commonly said that folding 1,000 paper cranes makes a person's wish come true. So I think this would make a perfect greeting card to all my dear friends and family this holiday season.  It's easy and fun!  Just follow the simple instructions below.

Materials: - Brown Kraft recycled cards and envelopes - size 4 3/8 x 4 3/4 - Origami paper or holiday wrapping paper  - size 5 7/8 - Craft glue - Printer

Instructions: Simply use Microsoft word doc to create a holiday image for the front of the card as well as a holiday message …
