Everyone talks about this new online shopping place called ETSY. The purpose of it is for people/crafter’s (like us), to have a place to buy and sell HANDMADE stuff. Its pretty cool.
OMG! I could spend ALL day just browsing, and drooling over stuff. You can add items to your favorites or even seller’s.
PLUS I thinking its cool to be able to support crafter’s like ourselves.
Anyway-I LOVE Amy Butler paper. Its put out by K & Co.
Well, to my surprise she (Amy Butler) makes FABRIC line people!! HELLO! Gorgeous fabric! Just like my favorite pieces of cardstock! Its like 2 worlds colliding with LOVELY patterns! LOL!
So upon browsing Etsy, I began my search looking at handbag’s. A girl can NEVER have too many right?
I am normally into getting the newest Vera Bradley stuff. So I said WHY NOT try out some new HANDMADE version right?
So, after browsing the handbag’s section, I found this one particular seller at bagladiesinpa’s shop (her name is Lisa). I was SO drawn to her stuff. Fresh, clean yet funky and fun. I were a bag I would be one of hers.
I use to sew, and can SO appreciate handmade bags and stuff, cause I could NEVER do anything like that, nor would I want to.
After looking at her collections, I saw a style bag she made that I LOVED! But not in a FABRIC that I had to have. I had seen other bag’s with a Amy Butler fabric I WANTED it in. So I PM’d her, and asked her if she could make me her “Cleo style” bag, using the “Lace-work” fabric by Amy Butler. Basically customize a bag for me-LOL!
She got back to me, and said she would! She also made some “accessories” that I had to have too! Smart woman.
Her photos and descriptions were great and helpful. Her communication ROCKED, as did her overall customer service.
She is a MYTIME approved seller . I am VERY picky so that is a HUGE compliment.
Here is what I got!
NOTE: This photo was copy/pasted from her site. I figure since I am giving her a good review she won’t mind!
When it was done she contacted me to let me know it was listed if I still wanted it! (UM YEAH!!!! I asked for it)
After she shipped it was on my door 3 days later!
It came beautifully wrapped-so professional. Her communication ROCKED!
When I saw the bag and items, it was even BETTER in person! Very well made.
What a great experience I had. I am now buying my bag’s handmade from her, here on out.
FYI I am not related to this person, or anything. I just HAD to share my experience with all of you, cause I know only YOU could appreciate my babble about a bag-especially since its created from the same style of paper I’m addicted too!
I’ll be back later with some “stamping related” stuff to share.
