How did you start in the handmade community?
It’s in my blood to create; I have made handmade my whole life. If I couldn’t create I would be one grumpy person. So I’ve been working towards this goal my whole life just recently realizing that it could be a career. In 2014 my bags were born and I started selling on Etsy. After that I had my first show July of 2015 (which was Jackalope). It’s been love at first show! Shows have been the most rewarding part of my journey so far, I love the instant feedback I get from strangers and other makers.
What or who inspires you?
People!! I love street style and seeing how people put outfits together, or seeing how people mix fabrics and prints. This is why I really like doing art and craft fairs… my customers give me so much inspiration!
What makes your work unique and truly your own?
I hand pick every fabric that is used for my bags, and mix new with vintage. I add my signature bow to all of my bags, and use fun pattern and color combinations.
What can we expect to see from you at Jackalope Art & Craft Fair?
Fanny packs which are my newest addition to my collection, coin purses, tampon cases, make-up bags, and purses. I will also have a small line of bags without bows!
