In April, I just turned the big 3-0. I thought I would be more depressed about it, but it turns out this is the year of changes and excitement. In February, I found out that I would be moving to Denver, Colorado. My boyfriend accepted a job offer right outside of the City. He moved there last month, but I will be moving there in July. This will be huge and an exciting new adventure for me considering I have lived in Virginia practically all my life. I am excited to see what the craft and art atmosphere the City of Denver has to offer. I am assuming that it is a lot bigger in Denver than in the VA Beach area and maybe more competitive, but I plan to continue with my handbags, participate in craft shows, and meet other local artisans in Denver.
Since I have been getting prepared to move and been commuting a longer way to work for the next couple months, I have not been doing much sewing this Spring. I did participate in farmers market in March, and I plan to participate in a couple more craft shows before I move.
I did get a new sewing machine for my birthday – so I still have been doing some sewing. I have made several more tote bags, and I also been making some reusable market/grocery bags to sell. I have received a box full of up-cycled fabric, and that is when I decided to make and sell reusable grocery bags.
Here are some examples of new tote bags and make-up bags I made in the past couple months, and also the new maxi skirt that I made from fabric I bought from Mood Fabrics!
