{style: clutch it}

What woman doesn’t love a great purse?

I have to share these handmade clutches that I found, made by BeeGeeBags . They are like eye candy. Can’t you just picture any one of these spicing up a solid colour outfit? You will be getting envious dirty looks from all the ladies in the room.

Here’s just a small sample. There’s tons to pick from and they’re all so pretty it was hard just to narrow it down to this large selection. The designs & pattern are stunning. And the simple design of the clutch lets the pattern & colours shine. No need to get complicated.

Aren’t you tired of carrying around those large pieces of luggage that are considered ‘purses’ these days?

{harvest time}

I love autumn. It’s my favourite season by far. Probably because it matches my colouring. Kidding. Sorta.

Anyway, there is some special harvest going on this autumn by the name Handmade Harvest. It’s a craft harvest! (read: craft show) It’s hosted by my dear friend Emily and her partner in crime, Colleen over at Blackbird.

I’ve been getting my craft on these last couple weeks in preparation for the big day on November 6th. I’m planning on showcasing some fun & colourful items. As promised here’s a sneak preview:

Gift tags, for Christmas and some for any occasion. They will look great on a nicely wrapped package in plain brown paper with a pretty ribbon.

Then I made some funky & fun buttons. These add a little flare to any bag, purse, jacket, hat, shirt…etc. etc….wherever you want a little punch of fun & colour.

I have a few more ideas up my sleeve but they’re still in the works. I’m going to get my hands dirty with some silk screening and see if my sewing machine is in the mood for a workout. Fingers crossed that it all turns out!
