I put the finishing touches on the Dracula purse this morning, packed it up and shipped it off to its new home! 

Back to working on Dead and Gone until the next purse request comes in. :)  Don't forget, the form doesn't work - so email me the details for now!

Working on a new purse

So I check the mail today and there is a package, I open it up and you know that moment in the movies when the light breaks through the clouds to shine down on something amazing, well I swear that happened. lol Inside was a leather copy of Dracula that someone wants me to transform into probably the most awesome purse yet! This is going to fun!

Now your probably asking, WHY is it taking so long to finish the Sookie purse.... well, shortly after I started working on it I took a short break to play around with my finger nails. (another of my creative ventures) and I did this awesome zebra print design that I ended up falling in love with. Why does that matter you ask? The glue I use on the purses is really messy and I swear just the fumes from it ruins my polish! So I spent a week with pretty nails and put the purse in a drawer for later. :) Silly, I know - but it's not like anyone was waiting on that one yet!

Saturday, July 9, 2011

Ok, so for some reason the form below doesn't exactly work correctly... 
so, for now just EMAIL ME the details and we'll work it like that. Make sure to include BOOK PURSE in your subject line because it will most likely end up in my spam folder. Thanks

Working on a new purse

So I'm working on a new purse for no one in particular.. I saw the fabric and thought it would go great with the book, and so here it is in the making. Just trying to decide on handles.  :)
If your interested in it, comment on this post or fill out the new order form I added at the bottom of this page! 

Speaking of the new order form, *ditz* I totally forgot to add an email field, so PLEASE remember to include your email address in the field for physical address, or in the extra details - as long as it's in there somewhere. I'll get it fixed as soon as possible. 

I am still taking custom orders! Don't wait for me to list something - order it!
