Carrie Valentine Roses Pocketbook

Are you ready for 2009? I sure am and I'm jumping the gun a little and posting a peek at one of my new pocketbooks. I'm really excited as I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel of 2008 and I know that it's not a train up ahead! It's sunshine and happiness! 

I've been promising to turn things around for over 6 months now ... and despite delays caused by illness, financial disasters, and just plain 'ol states of "overwhelm", I am happy to be tying up the loose ends on my backlog of made-to-order orders and will start 2009 with my improved business plan that will make for happy customers and a much happier me!

Most every bag you will see on my site this year will be a One of A Kind Original. Occasionally I may have enough of a special fabric to offer some limited edition designs (like I have currently wih the Victoria Black Rose Pocketbook blogged about previously) 

You'll always know if a design will have a production schedule, they will be clearly detailed.  And you can rest assured all OOAK's will be complete and ready to ship upon receipt of your order and completion of your payment. 

Here's my newest - just a little taste of what's to come ~ The Carrie Valentine Roses Pocketbook

Gift Wrap Those GIft Cards!

If you are like me, this year a lot of people on your list really just want gift cards for Christmas.  My daughter and my niece want gift cards to their  favorite stores and for downloading music and  my sisters-in-law enjoy getting gift cards for buying fabric and sewing notions, books, groceries, meals at great restaurants and for going to the movies.

It used to seem like giving a gift card was not a very thoughtful gift, but with the current changes in the economy, more and more family and friends are asking for gift cards so they can use them for what they really want or need, when  they are ready to shop. It makes perfect sense,  and you can get a gift card just about anywhere for anything!

And what better way to "wrap" and present those gift cards than with a multi-purpose Mama's  Pocketbook Card Case! You'll find a variety of fabrics, or choose the Misc. Florals option to be surprised!

Christmas Tissue Covers and Holiday Tissues

Adorable Holiday Tissues and Dottie Tissue Covers

These are not your ordinary tissue covers, they are from Mama's Pocketbook, so you know they are of the highest quality and made to last. There are no raw seams even on the inside - my special technique for making these cute little accessories results in a durable, washable, functional, and fashionable cover. 

The red dottie or green dottie fabric is a great cotton canvas that works for boys and girls, men and women. These make great gifts for teachers, bus drivers, mail carriers, delivery people, neighbors, co-workers ... friends, family, young and old alike! Everyone can use a nice tissue holder! And everyone enjoys the holiday printed tissues included!

HURRY to order, at $4.75 each and with free shipping via first class mail. If you want Priority Mail, please email me and let me know or add to comments and I will invoice you $4.75 regardless of the number of covers ordered. These are bound to sell out fast and Christmas is just around the corner!
