I made my first fabric bag a few years back, using a plastic bag from Target as a pattern.
Between my fabric addiction and the need for a creative outlet, I continued to make more bags and gave them to friends and family. After suggestions from my gifted recipients and being asked "where'd you get that bag?" again and again, I opened my shop.
My full-time job in a sign shop fuels my obsession for type and design. The letters I decorate come from the waste of an acrylic-cutting router table. Salvaged mis-cuts, cracked, or backwards-cut letters are hand-wrapped with patterned paper, magazine covers or discarded greeting cards, along with thread, glitter, buttons and found objects.
My alphabet cards and promotional materials are made using adobe illustrator, an inkjet printer and my silhouette cameo. I print and cut out my alphascraps, business cards, tags and labels.
